How to set up ps3 multiplayer lan

Hi, my friends and I have 3 ps3's between us and want to permanently wire up a multiplayer lan between them (we've tried and failed so far), we don't really want to bring our laptops into the equation just a simple wired connection, can this be done and if so how and what do we need to do/get for the lan to work?
thanks

All you need is a switch or a router no PC or laptop needed. Connect the PS3s to a switch and you guys should be good to go.

So, I put in a game : MW3 and go multiplayer, but it says that it is disabled because of parental control restrictions.I've turned everything off, please help. I am on a 50gb internet plan each mo


It's not the internet settings, it's parental resctriction ;)
I don't have a PS3, but I guess it could be found in some account management, or something like that.Then you have to find Parental Restriction.

The reason this have occoured, I guess, is because you have registered the psn-account on a e-mail adress where your "age" are under 18 years. You probably will need a password for your parents e-mail adress.

My friend said that I could do multiplayer on my xbox through internet without xbox live. I dont know if he`s telling the truth but if you can will you please tell me


Hi.

Yes your friend is telling you the truth. When you load up a game and choose the Multiplayer option you usually get a choice to go through Windows Live or LAN.

LAN is the option you need to choose to play on-line without having to sign in to Windows Live.
Be aware that only some games support this option.


Hope this helps!!!



Regards.

Can play with friends on call of duty


sure you can, all you need is a broadband connection (wireless or wired) and a Playstation Network Account.

to set up your internet connection, find the network settings on settings menu on XMB, choose 'setup internet connection' or something like this, then follow the guide on screen .

then just login your Playstation Network Account in PSN menu on XMB (if you don't have one, simply register yourself in PSN menu on XMB in the correspondent option).

when logged in you PSN account, simply start up your game and access the online multiplayer option, it will connect you to CoD severs.

then, you must invite your friends (that should be logged on PSN also) to the same game. there should be an option to do this on Online Multiplayer interface.

Ps3 wired connection


Hi There.

If your PS3 is Networked upto Your PC to use the internet connection, You have to allow the PC to share its Internet connection with yout PC, Do this By going into Network settings, Checking the properties of your LAN card in your PC. and clicking on, "share my internet". This should alleviate that problem..

Or.

If your PS3's Wired connection isnt working. but your PC one is, Try moving your PS3 Lan cable into one of the other Free LAN Ports (if available) or Try Switching the PC cable over to the PS3's Port in the Router, and Visa-Versa !

Internet connection


the Ps3 should connect fine, if you have your wired router set up right to automatically assign ip addresses...(DHCP)..in otherwords, anyone who comes over with a computer from anywhere..even me..should be able to plug a lan cable in to your router and it should connect without changing any settings. If this is true, then you should be able to go into your settings menu, select wired connection type, hook up your lan cable...then select auto and east for the settings for ethernet. this should work, if any pc works. If not, you may have to call AOL for info on how to properly configure your router and PS3. The network issue is most likely a AOL issue, and not a PS3 issue.
