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.

SOURCE: my ps3 would connect to the internet

Try connecting to your router with a cable and see if that is able to get you online.

If it does, then 9/10 its a signal problem.

If it doesn't, then you have a settings problem.

Also, is your router close enough to the ps3 to supply sufficient signal to the console? From my experience, the router needs to be pretty close to the ps3 for it to get a good signal or if you have a wireless N type router. Wireless b/g routers usually need to be very close to their source for it to be fully effective as the ps3 requires.

Hi Giles

You probably have your router connected to your modem, and a PC connected wired/wireless, and the ps3 connected wired/wireless.


1. First you need to start your ps3 system. Go to your network settings and select information. Write down your IP, Subnet mask, Standard Gateway, and the primary DNS.

2. Start your PC and go to your networks settings. Right click your network adapter, click properties. Select "Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Click properties and type in manually the IP adress, Subnet mask, Standard gateway and DNS.

Then you click "Advanced" and then you click "WINS" then "Activate NetBIOS over TCP/IP". Save your settings and connect the ps3 to your network (should not make a difference if you do it wired or wirelessly)

Let me know if this helped and please do rate my solution.

3) Select "easy" on the new screen that pops up asking what type of installation you want to use.

4) Select "wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.

5) Select "scan" on the next screen so that the system searches for all available Internet connections in the area.

6) Select your home Internet when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options.

7) Save your settings on the next screen.

8) Test the connection to make sure that it works properly, also you would need to enter the secure password if you have set it for your wireless modem our router for wifi access in order to connect it with your PS3.

Trying to connect my ps3 to the internet but need wireless route


That won't work because your old sbc wireless router 2wire gateway is also a modem. You need a plain router for Time Warner. Try Linksys router.

PS3 wont connect to internet


Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3

Wiring up 2700hg-b wireless router


Hi, you will need a ethernet card in the pc to connect up a wireless router, most dont work with usb,
otherwise you would need a wireless adapter.
once you do get it connected, go into internet explorer and type in the ip adress for the router, will then come up with a menu for you to programme in your broadband details, once you get the router up and going, go into the PS3 settings, network settings, it will pick up the router all you need to do is enter the network key and its all go from there.,
ethernet card should cost you about £10 from any shop
Happy New Year

Ps3 online


ps3 has a built in wireless adapter.rather than having wires all over, get a wireless router.connect the router to your modem with an ethernet.once you have the wireless router up and running,you will have whats called an "access point" for any devices to connect to wirelessly (within a reasonable distance),such as the ps3.
