First Let me know that what exactly the error message coming up , when you are trying to login to your netflix account on your PS3..
And please refer to this link : PS3 Netflix Connection Troubleshooting
It depends what you want to use it for. If you mean connect it so you
can access songs, pics, videos etc, you need to set up a DLNA Media
There is a page on how to do this, click on the link below >>>
1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my
typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://184.108.40.206
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.
this error means you basically can't get connected to Internet. It's due probably to an IP conflict on your local LAN.
Try to do the following:
- switch your PS3 off
- switch any device connected to your local LAN (laptops, desktops, iphones, etc..)
- unplug power cable from your modem/router
- unplug ethernet cable from both PS3 and modem/router
- wait 1 minute, plug everything right back
- switch your PS3 on and see if this error has gone.
how was it connected at this other residence? was it via HDMI cable by any chance? if so try this, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. (until you hear the second beep) this causes the PS3 to reset the display properties back to 480i..follow the onscreen instructions to set it back up to 1080i
Well, I'm not completely sure how to help exactly. This problem sometimes prompts as "DNS" error followed by an error code. If it displays a DNS error, then your problem is that the PS3 cannot find the modem (and router if you have it connected that way).
DNS errors on the PS3 simply means that it cannot find (see) the modem/router.
One way of correcting this would be to reset your modem (and router if you have it connected that way)by unplugging it (from wall and power port). Keep it unplugged for 1 minute or so. Power down your PS3 at the same time.
Plug in your modem (and router if you have it connected that way) and allow for it to reset.
Now power on your PS3 and go to the network settings and establish a new wired connection. Follow the prompts and test the connection afterwards.
Mind you, this is a general means to solving the problem. Try this first to see if you are successful.
I do hope that this helps you.
- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless
Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.
For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.
