My ps2 wont log onto my internet past checking the dnsa?

From memory of sons PS3 but should be similar in ps2---In set up--- check IP address settings are on auto make sure you have the right WIFI network -type indicated,.... and above all make sure your WIFI signal is in range and you have a good signal when setting up.....The problem I had with sons PS3 was similar nothing indicated that the signal wasn't good enough...i did everything i could think of including putting static ip addresses---nothing cut the story short, it turned out that the wifi which should have been in range wasn't good enough... accidentally got a connection in auto a couple of times which bombed out quickly...But---after replacing wifi with a better range unit and updating broadband all such problems disappeared

My PS3 has no sound when game starts. It does have sound before game. Also, the Blu-Ray movies skip & dont play.

It sounds like the sound signal type might be incorrect. I'd go into sound settings in the options menu, and when it asks whether you want manual or automatic, choose manual. Tell it to send regular PCM audio instead of the default Dolby settings, and see if this fixes your issues.

Where do u get the software update cd's for the ps3 ..looked on website and cant find it anywhere

There are no update discs. There are 3 ways to update... through a game, the internet or a removable memory device. You can put the update on a flash drive from your computer. Hook your ps3 up to the internet and it will automatically prompt you to update or rent a newer game, but it most likely wont have the most recent update on it

Blue ray wont play movies on new tv

Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.
