Set up the router on a real computer first, then sign onto wifi with the PS3. Be sure you know the security settings so that you can easily match when connecting from the PS3

How do I hook my ps3 to the internet using a eithernet cable.?


http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstat...
That website has a great guide on how to setup your ps3 for internet connection.
This is what you need to hook up to the net for your PS3
1.You need a MODEM which is the "box thing" that connects to your pc.
1. You need a ROUTER which connects to your MODEM and in to your PC. The router allows for both the PC and the PS3 to use the internet at teh same time. Unplug the wire that goes into your PC and plug into your ROUTER so that the modem is connected to the router not the PC
3. You need to connect your PS3 to the router with an ethernet cable and your PC to the router with an ethernet cable
4. Go to that web site and follow the instruction on how to set up and account on your PS3 and get going online and have fun!! Good luck!

I can log on to my wireless account and get online, but then it i lose the signal, and when i scan, it picks up signal stenght on 90 % but wont connect, I can hard wire it and i get online with no...


The problem lies in the wireless connection. Either the wireless adapter on the game console, or with your wireless router. Although wireless internet makes it easier to get online and play, it is actually the worst choice for online gaming. this is due to the lag time in the signal relay to the router. Wired internet is the best choice for online gaming. If you can hook your console up to a wired internet connection, then I suggest you do that.

I have a wireless router in my bedroom where the internet comes into my house. My sons got a PS3 and have hooked it up, it is now saying the ethernet cord in not connected. What is this and how do I fix...


Check that ethernet cord is plugged in correctly to router.Ethernet cord looks like a telephone cord.
must be in the lan port of router.

You need to have a ethernet cable going from the back of the ps3 to your router in 1 of the ports.

or ps3 needs a wireless adaptor to pick up the wirless signal from the router.

Can you hook up the ps 3 to the internet router to get online with out using a computer


do you have a wireless router?

depends on how your internet is set up

but if your internet is set up like this

internet plug on wall>>>wireless router>>>>main computer

then you can connect to the wireless router without having the computer to be on

if you can use the wireless internet using a laptop then i dont see why it wount work for the ps3

if you dont have a wirekless router and your internet router has several eithernet ports then you can run a either net cable from the router to the ps3

My playstation 3 wont connect to the internet


Most of the time when I see this it means you haven't correctly forwarded the ports on your router to allow access through it's firewall. go here:
www.portforward.com

scroll down and find the manufacturer of your Router
then find your model #
when you click on the model # you will see a new page load with a list of programs, game systems, and other devices. Click on PS3 and it will show you step by step what ports to open to allow internet access
-pls rate "very high" if this helps and i'd love feedback- thanks

Trying to get online but cant


You have to make sure that the router isn't still loading, to unload it you need to hook the internet to a local computer in your house. Just get on any website and then hook it up to your PS3 and it should work.

I connot connect in internet eithernet not ditected


This will work: first thing I'd do is change your DNS settings on the PS3 to the open DNS numbers which are 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

I cant get wirless xbox live


The 1st question I have is, are you using the official Microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly) manufactured by Microsoft? That is the first solution to this issue. If so you must go into your router settings using the home router IP address usually listed on the router unit and setup the router manually to see the microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly), try typing this ip address into your browser address line (192.168.1.1) this is usually a generic router IP address to access your router. Your 360 should have a MAC address listed when in the settings and that should be seen by the router as well. Also check your firewall settings to make sure that it allows wireless transmissions. ( My computer usually has to be running for it to see wired & wireless devices properly). I also prefer just running a wired network for connectivity issues with wireless, such as other electronic interferrence from cordless phones & microwaves as I sometimes get with my nintendo Wii.
