PS3 Not Detecting Ethernet Cable


If its not the cable and not the switch port rhat its plugged in to, about rhe only thing left would be a failedfailing ethernet port on the ps3 itself. When you look into the actual port, do the wires look good? Try plugging the ps3 directly into some other ethernet device to see if you get a link anywhere. The actual link pulse and whole process of the initial handshakes, etc for AutoNegotiating the speed and duplex matching settings sometimes doesn't work with some brands of equipment. by using other equipment connected directly to your ps3, you'll simply be testing that the problem doesn't exist with another nic or port brand. Try several devices, preferably all devices with gigabit capability to support the Auto Mdix functions so that you don't have to use a crossover cable. If you connect the ps3 directly to a pc with only a 10/100 mbps adapter, you will likely need a special crossover cable to get that connection's link light lit up. If your ethernet switch supports configuration settings (not likely though if its a basic home internet router), try forcing the speed and duplex settings of the switch port to see if anything helps.

How would i use dial up connection to connect my playstation 3 to internet?


Why would you want to? Dial up is so terribly slow for just Internet browsing; I imagine for playing games online it'd be even worse (if it even lets you connect with such a slow connection).

That being said, you obviously can't direct connect dial up to the PS3. There isn't a port for that. Instead you'll have to do a work around involving a PC/laptop with a dial-up modem/port and an Ethernet port on it. You'll also need and Ethernet cable.

Basically the plan is to connect to dial up using your laptop/PC, then share the connection on it from the dial-up port to the Ethernet port. The PS3 would then connect to the Internet through your computer. Not ideal, but then again having only dial up isn't an ideal situation to begin with.

Here's some specific guides on the matter:

Here's some generic guides on ICS (Internet connection sharing) on Windows:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing

Here's a link for sharing Internet connections on a Mac (if Mac's even have a dial-up port, I honestly don't know how old you'd have to go to get one with it):

We used a Netgear wireless router to broadcast signal to our PS3. NEVER had a problem playing ps3 online games. We just got a new apartment and cable internet with ATT. Now, when we try to play online ps3...


Yea the encryption codes can be an issue, but something elts you should check are the other devices you use on the network. Check the port settings and if possible (depending on your model of router you can create a dedicated port for the ps3. If another device tries to use the same port there will be conflicts, and another thing to think about is if you have a n-b-g capable router, devices using b and g will slow the speed of the routers send and recieve capabilities for ALL devices on the network, this can create lagg and boot you off from time to time.

Ps3 wont connect to Netgear Router and allow access


I had just the same problem, when netgear upgraded the firmware it would no longer connect. To solve this i went onto netgear.com, click support, enter the model number, then download firmware 40.01.37. not the most recent one. Follow the online instuctions after installing the firmware you should have no problem with entering the password.

Ps3 wired connection


Hi There.

If your PS3 is Networked upto Your PC to use the internet connection, You have to allow the PC to share its Internet connection with yout PC, Do this By going into Network settings, Checking the properties of your LAN card in your PC. and clicking on, "share my internet". This should alleviate that problem..

Or.

If your PS3's Wired connection isnt working. but your PC one is, Try moving your PS3 Lan cable into one of the other Free LAN Ports (if available) or Try Switching the PC cable over to the PS3's Port in the Router, and Visa-Versa !

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
