I can't get internet connection


Try connecting the PS3 using an ethernet cable if possible, first. This will allow for the PS3 to connect to your router initially.

Also, try restarting the Wireless Router or Modem and then Restarting the PS3. You may have to enter the IP Address and DNS manually at first, but then the PS3 will remember the information and be able to access the internet connection automatically.

Hope this helps. If not, feel free to message back and I can walk you through other options.

you can set your playstation 3 online by two ways, 1- by a wired connection, and 2- Wireless,

1-Wired Connection: Plug an ethernet cable from your highspeed modem to the back ethernet input on your ps3 system, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wired Connection. and follow steps
2- Wireless Connection: You must have a Router connecting ethernet cable from your intenet modem to the router, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wireless Connection and follow steps,

hope this helped you on setting up your ps3 connection :)

Will not pick up my pc


then there is no connection from your ps3 to your computer/modem. make sure you have a phone wire connecting your modem to a pc, then have a ethernet cable connecting your ps3 to the modem. or you can keep the phone wire to the pc, and connect the ethernet cable to the ps3 and the pc.

Icannot connect to the internet.when the system scans for an IP address it comes back saying failed. what to do?


andersonmarc

In regards your issue connecting to the internet. You need to make sure that you are connecting your ethernet cable to the PS3 or connecting to a wireless router. If you are connecting to a wireless router double check your WEP/WAP settings. Also note if you have a USB modem to my understanding those would not work with the PS3 because you would not be able to install the drivers.

If you have any more questions let me know

Connecting to the Internet


Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins. Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.

Ps3 wired connection prob.


I can't be certain, but does your ISP rewuire the hardware connecting to it to have a certain MAC address (i.e. the one used to first 'activate' the Internet connection)? If so you may need to 'clone' the MAC address to get online either by a router or some other method.
