If you have the model of PS3 with built in WLAN you need no more stuff. Just go to the ethernet adjustments in your PS3 and set it to wireless connections. If you have an encrypted network at home, you will need to fill in that key aswell. The key is usually printed at the back of the router/modem (That is if you havnt changed it yourselfe)
The PS will look for available networks and ask if you want to connent.

In the menu select settings/network settings/internet connection settings/wireless/auto detect/automatic/ make sure that when you select the wireless that is yours, that you choose the same security setting... if it is 'none' you are in good shape (no password needed). for the others, you will need to type the password exactly as it is on your modem/computer (case sensitive). the following is directly from sony. (just in case)

SETTINGS > NETWORK SETTINGS > INERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS > WIRELESS > WIRED CONNECTION > CUSTOM > MANUAL SETTINGS > AUTO DETECT > AUTOMATIC > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X

if this helps, please rate...if not, respond and i will help you further...thanks

What connections are needed to hookup the ps3 to the internet?


You can either hook up your PS3 through hard wire using an ethernet cable plugged into your PS3 and your modem or wireless since the PS3 has a built in wi - fi adapter for the wireless network in range.

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop


Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Thanks

Do I need a 2nd modem to hook my ps3 up to the internet? My ps3 is no where near my computer...how can I get it hooked up to the internet?


I would use a wireless router. Then you can use ps3 or laptop in the house. Or run ethernet from main router/modem to the ps3. You can buy the ethernet cables at amazon.com and newegg.com and they can go a few hundred feet.

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


you can go wireless, but personally wired is better. what router do you have? switch everything off, plug a ethernet cable from one of your ports on router to ps3 then then switch it all on. on ps3 go to settings - network settings - internet connection settings - then select easy - then whether you wanna do it wireless or wired (up to you) then let it do its thing, once its found all your settings you can test the connection.
Have you set up an account on your ps3 yet?

HOW TO INSTALL PS3 TO INTERNET


There are two way basically, you can either a) hook you PS3 up directly to your router or modem using a CAT-5 cable (RJ-45 or regular old internet cable, whatever you want to call it) or b) hook up to the internet using the built in wireless adapter of the PS3. (provide of course, that you have wireless in range of your PS3)
If you are in your PS3's menu, go to settings and then network settings. You should be able to figure the rest out from there because it basically walks you through it.

Hope that helps

Sorry if the answer seems vague... but the question was a little vague as well, just doin' my best.

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.
