Well, I don't have much knowledge but I can connect to my wireless router with no problems. Okay here is what you need to do! READ CAREFULLY! First turn on your PS3, then go to Settings ---> Network settings ---> Internet connection settings after that press Easy ---> Wireless ---> Scan ---> Choose your connection (It's usally the first one) ---> If you have a password in your connection then choose WEP is you don't have a password then choose None. That's it! Well done you have succesfully connected!

Wish you good day!

How to connect your PS3 to the internet


In this guide I will go over the steps you need to take in order to connect your Ps3 to the internet either wired or wireless.

Wireless Connection
-Your home router should be configured for wireless and you should know your wireless routers security information. Make sure an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3.
-Turn on your console and select Network Settings under the Settings option in the main menu.
-Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and then select Yes when prompted.
-For the installation type select "Easy"
-Select "Wireless" when prompted for your connection type.
-Select "Scan". Your system will scan and show all available wireless access points within range.
-Select your home access point from the list.
-Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings
Make sure to select Test Connection to make sure the connection is working properly.

Wired Connection

You will have the same steps as a wireless connection, except once you select "Easy", you will be prompted for your wired connection settings. Normally, in a home environment, you are using DCHP and the IP address as well as DNS information is all obtained automatically from your router.

Be sure to select Test Connection afterwards

Ok. You should now be connected to the internet. Enjoy!

    Cant get online


    Before you can go online on the PS3, there is need for you to have either a wireless lan network or a wired network with an ethernet cable.
    If you are using a wireless network, here is how you go about it
    1. Make sure your wireless Internet connection is active and at full strength. Unplug the PS3's Ethernet cable if it is plugged into the system.
    2. Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and select "Network Settings" under the "Settings" option in the main menu.
    3. Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and select "Yes" when the system displays a new screen saying you will be disconnected from the Internet.
    4. Select "Easy" on the next screen that asks what type of installation you want to use.
    5. Select "Wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.
    6. Select "Scan" on the next screen.The system will search for all available Internet connections in the area.
    7. Select your home Internet connection when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options. Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings.
    8. Test the connection by selecting the "Test Connection" option. If the connection has been made, your network information will appear on the screen.
    If you are using a wired connection. just go over the same steps but select the wired connection instead of the wireless connection.
    Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information.

    How do i connect my ps3 to the internet if i dont have wifi?


    Your PS3 supports both wired and wireless. Heres how I have mine set up, Ive been running wired since day 1. 1st- hook your ps3 up to your modem or router with an ethernet cable. {im assuming ps3 is plugged into the tv, if not hook it up}
    2- go in to your network setting on ps3.. If you start at the far left go over click and all the way down. You will see network settings. click on it and go down to the 3rd option there.. Internet connection settings. You will get a pop up that says your ps3 will be disconnected from the internet if you proceed, just hit ok. It usually automatically detects if you have the ethernet cable plugged in but just in case it doesnt go ahead and select wired. after that, just select auto for everything else. You will go through about 5 questions and it will be ready to do an internet connection test. All should be well.
    If that doesnt work, make sure all the cables are plugged in and try again.If you are able to connect to the internet after that but get booted off, go back into network settings again and disable the media server. Hope that helps.. Happy Gaming

    Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work


    if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

    and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
    If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

    Internet Connection


    then you have to update the ps3's firmware.
    Use a computer and go here and click the bar that says "download now".
    when you are done downloading, save the file on a flash drive (also called thumb/USB drive), compact flash, SD card or memory stick. it must be at least have 140MB free space.
    On the storage, copy the file you downloaded in the \PS3\Update folder.
    Insert the media in the ps3 via usb or card reader.
    On the Ps3, under "Settings", go to "System Update".
    select "Update via storage media".
    click ok to start the upate. Follow the directions.

    After its done, now try to change your network settings.

    Internet Connection


    On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings".
    then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes".
    go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan".
    If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point.
    Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one).
    select "automatic" for everything.
    select "Test Connection".
    the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded".
    If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.

    Ps3 wireless


    It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
