How do you fix the error code 80710723?


Hello,

Remove the connections you have to your wireless network on your PS3, then set it up again. Your PS3 might also be too far away from your router. If you're getting this message frequently, I would call your ISP or the manufacturer of your router and try to boost your wireless signal strength.

Try turning off media server on ps3 Go into the PS3?s Settings menu and navigate to Network Settings - Media Server Connection disable it thats my first idea which could be causing the issue..Secondly unplug your modem/router for 15 sec then plug back in...THEN FOLLOW STEPS

  1. Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, and then press the "X" button.
  2. Select "Internet Connection Settings", and then press the "X" button. When a message stating that the Internet connection will be terminated is displayed, select "Yes", and then press the "X" button.
  3. Select "Wired Connection" or "Wireless Connection", and then press the "X" button.
  4. Select "Easy" or "Custom" and adjust settings as necessary. Follow the on-screen instructions to adjust the required settings.
Note: You should always choose Easy before going onto to adjusting the Custom settings. In most cases, the Easy settings will work and are set automatically so you won't have to search for information that could have been gathered automatically.

Hope this info was helpful cheers nikki

The signal strength on the ps3 is very low yet my computer has 100%. Why?


Hi. If there are no walls or any kind of interference that is blocking the router to send wireless signal to your PS3 then this could be a wireless adapter problem on your PS3. By the way, is the PS3 sits beside the router?

Hi. Since you are getting a good signal in your pS2 connecting to your wireless router. Test your internet connection using this site www.speedtest.net. Your download speed should atleast 80% of the speed that you subscribed. For example, If you availed for a 5mbps connection you should be getting 4mbps or more when you test the connection.

Have a good one!

How to boost wireless signal on ps3


If you are talking the wireless for the controllers they use bluetooth and the signal strength is dependent on how much interference there is around you. If you are speaking of the wifi capability for the network connection you cannot increase the strength of the signal from the PS3 it needs to be done with the wireless access point.

get your router name and go through manual setup, your brother may have accedentally made your wireless network hidden, to change that go to http://192.168.1.1 or .0.1 and log in and chang the settings to default

PS3 cant go online with Belkin N150 (I think) wireless router


You need to disable the UPnP function on the Belkin router. Log into the router(192.168.2.1), and look under System Settings for the UPnP function and disable it. If you haven't changed the password on the router, the default password is blank, i.e., no password.

PS3 wireless internet problems


It sounds like a defective wireless antenna. Connect your PS3 via a long network cable and see if you can get online. If you can, the problem is a defective antenna.

Assuming you purchased the PS3 from a store and have the reciept, you should be able to get it swapped or fixed via warranty.

Good luck and take care,

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" )
