Hmm lets see. First try connecting ps3 through eithernet. Since you have not mentioned that, i figure that it works. Do you have a WAP protection on router? Some gadgets dont like to run into the walls sort of speak. Well to try the wireless just go to the network menu on your ps3 and look for your signal in the establish connection tab. See if that works

This seems to be a wireless issue that you are having. In this case, ensure that your router/modem is working as it should be. Check the modem/router's login page and ensure its status is functioning with its intended speeds.
Place the PS3 close to the router and check that it is connecting with the router. If not, then plug a Ethernet cable and connect to the internet with that. If the PS3 connects, then the wireless module inside the PS3 is having a connection issue. If this is the case, contact a authorized PS3 dealer to replace the module.
I would recommend always using an Ethernet connection as it is always more secure and speeds are the fastest using this method.
You will need to get a networking router to split the connections. My suggestion is that if you are going to get one, consider getting a wireless N Belkin router for $60. I consider it to be the best thing since sliced bread. In the future if you want to move your PS3 to another room, you'll have the wireless capability to do so. Write down everything when establishing your connection so that there are no problems setting up your PS3.
There are splitters out there but it will slow down your connection and are not easy to find. Save the trouble and get the wireless router so you won't need to spend any more money in the future.
Good luck and if i've helped you out, please give me a good rating.
1. If wireless try a cabled connection. 2. If connection is via a router plug the cable directly into the modem. Could be a network / router issue 3. Check your connection option on the ps3 dash 4. Post more info and i try & help
The AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) buttion is actually located on your wireless router. It is part of the Buffalo Technology system and allows secure wireless connections to ge setup with the touch of one button. Most wireless routers will have this type of button on the front panel. They are labeled differently by each company, but they will all function the same. This gives you the choice of pushing one button rather than having to manually enter the setup information. Check your manual for something similar to One Touch Setup.
Is this only while playing online? what is your intenet connection like? (ie Speed/set up)
generally if you have a router with several consoles or PCs connected, if one is demanding a lot of bandwidth (ie Gaming or downloading) this can throttle the connection for other PCs or consoles connected. This situation can be made worse if the consoles are both wireless. A few options are: 1)Check your broadband speed - upgrade if possible 2) Check your router, does it have an option to prioritise one PS over another? 3)Connect the playstations via wired ethernet cables giving better reliability 4)Upgrade your router (or get one if you dont have one) that has a higher connection speed for internal connections. Gigabit connection should be standard though.
Yes you can connect wirelessly to the internet with your ps3.
