Re: internet connection

It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.

Just bought my kids a ps3 but we cannot figure out how to connect it to the internet?

Any of the two will work it all depends on preference. If the modem or router is too far from the console then you would most likely want to go wireless. Here are instructions how to do each:
Step 1: Turn on the PS3
Step 2: Once on main menu go to settings and under settings select "Network Settings"
Step 3: Select "Internet connection settings" if prompted that you will be disconnected from the internet select "Yes".
Step4: Select "Easy" on types of installation.
Step 5: Select "Wireless" to choose what kind of internet connection you want.
Step 6: Select "Scan" to search for internet access points.
Step 7: Select your home connection when the screen comes up with all the found access points. If your home Internet access point requires a password enter the password when prompted and save your settings.
Step 8: Test the connection to check if you configured your settings right if successful you are good to go. If not go back and check your connection settings for your home internet access point. You are now connected to the internet!

Trying to update our xbox 360 to be able to connect the new KINECT gaming system. It keeps tells us that we can not update. Can you please tell me what we need to do?

You need a internet connection to update. Find somebody with dsl and take your 360 console over there and use thier internet to update your console if you dont have dsl.

Make sure your PC is sharing the internet connection with other networked machines. Right-click on the connection and then click on Properties. There should be a sharing tab where you can enable it.

I have aps3 and im trying to play on line but i dont know how

Do you have internet first of all? You need to. Well if you do then you have to sign up for playstation network in order to play online. But before all of that you have to setup your internet settings in the Network Settings section. You can either use wired connection or wireless(WI-FI) connection. After that you can play online.

I cant log in, PLEASE help me.

first do have your own rooter dont you?

the way you explain this problem sounds like you just logged onto which ever connection you found! did you or afamily member set up a commection using belkin54g?

back to basics!
in order to connect to the net with any device...PC (if you dont have a pc how did you send this post?)...Wii PS3 first you need to install and connect to your own internet connection device i.e.ASDL Broadband it what you want

lol it sounds like you've been useing your next door neighbour's unsecured internet connection...nice cheap way to get connected.....but a bit of a bummer when text door go on holiday
i suggest setting up your own rooter (withyour own password)
