This setting is available only on PS3™ systems that are equipped with the wireless LAN feature.


Set the method for connecting the system to the Internet. Internet connection settings vary depending on the network environment and the devices in use. The following procedure describes a typical setup when connecting to the Internet wirelessly.
1.
Check that the settings for the access point have been completed.
Check that there is an access point connected to a network with Internet service near the system. Settings for the access point are typically set using a PC. For details, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point.
2.
Confirm that an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3™ system.
3.
Select ps3 help - in_networkset.gif (Network Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.
4.
Select [Internet Connection Settings].
Select [Yes] when a confirmation screen is displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet.
5.

Depending on the model of PS3™ system in use, you may have the option [Automatic]. Select [Automatic] when using an access point that supports automatic setup.

Enter the encryption key.
The encryption key is displayed as a series of [*]. If you do not know the encryption key, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.
When you have finished entering the encryption key and have confirmed the network configuration, a list of settings will be displayed.

Depending on the network environment, additional settings for PPPoE, proxy server or IP address may be required. For details on these settings, refer to the information from your Internet service provider or the instructions supplied with the network device.
12.
Save your settings.
13.
Test the connection.
If you select [Test Connection], the system will attempt to connect to the Internet.
14.
Confirm the connection test results.
If a successful connection has been made, information on the network will be displayed.

Hints

  • If the connection fails, follow the on-screen instructions to check your settings. Also refer to the information from your Internet service provider and the instructions supplied with the network device in use.
  • If you test the connection immediately after selecting [Automatic] > [AOSS™] in step 7, the router settings may not be completed and the connection may fail. Wait approximately 1 or 2 minutes before testing the connection.

Are you using a router? s133pyh34d is assuming you're even using a router. You can not hook up a PS3 directly to a modem like you can a computer. Wired or wireless, you need a router

Your PS3 should hook up fine to a wireless router if you input the correct SSID(network name) and WEP key. No ports have to be set to open for your PS3

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Hooking up wireless router to ps3 to get internet thru TV


i believe what you mean is your connection to your ps3 not on your tv

actually i think ps3 has a built in wireless adapter unlike xbox360

things to remember:

-make sure that you use compatible routers

-distance of wireless router from ps3 may affect the signal of internet

-actually, some devices like microwave or chordless phone may also interfere with youre connection

-if you are using a direct modem connection, you may need to call your isp to check if the firmware of your modem is up to date

-there is more to life than games so try to do some sports if you are not able to connect ^_^


hope it helps

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.
