Roadrunner is broadband, so you have a cable modem, and personally, I have NEVER seen one with wireless capability. You need to go get a wireless router and connect it between the modem, and your computer... follow the set up protocols for the router, and enable WEP encryption. After you have the router up and running, configure your PS3 to the router using its setup proceedures.

After you get the router and PS3 configured, go back into the router configuration, and set your router up to ONLY accept connections from the mac address of the PS3 (find the mac address by going into "network settings" and then "settings and connection status list") and turn off the SSID broadcast, you don't need it running once the PS3 knows the router is their, and by taking these two steps, you significantly increase the security of your network.

HOW DO YOU HOOK UP A PLAYSTATION 3 TO THE INTERNET


It can be done via a wired and a wireless connection. For the wired connection, you just need to hook the ethernet cable at the ethernet port on your PS3. For the wireless connection, you just need to set it up under the Network Connections on your System Settings for the PS3.

Connecting via Wireless router


I assume you want to simply connect wirelessly to the internet with your PS3. Its very simple, just go to Network Settings, select wireless connection and then "Easy" setup. The only thing you should need is your wireless encryption key which would of been supplied with your router.

Hope this helps.

My son has a DNS error on his PS3 and cant get onto the internet....can you help a technophobe


this has helped me in the past.. i hope it helps you out

Been troubled lately by that pesky DNS error? Notice that your PS3 can still browse the net, but not log in? Happen to be a Roadrunner customer? Happen to have any other ISP with a crummy DNS server? Well then read on...

The main issue turns out to be a Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS problem. The fix is simple. When configuring your PS3 network (regardless of wired or wireless), use the manual option. If you use DHCP, leave address resolution at automatic BUT CHANGE THE DNS SERVER ENTRY TO MANUAL.

I replaced the Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS entries with addresses from the Open DNS project which is a free, secure DNS server that anyone can use. It's safe, easy, and works.

The DNS addresses are:

208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

here is the url i got it from http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Network/Solution-for-your-DNS-error-80710102-problems-Works-for-all-ISP/m-p/42264211/message-uid/42264211

I hav a ps3 40 gb . i am tryin to hook it up thru my roadrunner internet service .how can i do this


cbailey2611

In regards to connecting your PS3 to the Internet what need to get a wireless router. Once you have the router then you will connect it to your cable modem. After it is connected then you will go into the wireless setup for the PS3 and point it to your router. This is the best way to setup your PS3. Note some of the newer ISPs are giving out wired/wireless router modems so you may need to contact your ISP's Tech support if you already have one of the router modems.

Let me know if you need more help with the PS3 setup as I have not made screen shots of the PS3 yet but can if you need some more help.

Help!! I'm having difficulty setting up my wireless connection to my ibook!


Last time I checked Roadrunner required you to have them set up the router. However, you should have an existing router from Roadrunner all set up. If you connect your other router which has the wireless capabilities to that then you will be able to use your wireless. Otherwise you will need to call Roadrunner and have them do some configuration on your device.

Can i connect a 2wire 2701hg-b with roadrunner cable internet ? I had the 2wire dsl with at&t but recently disconnected the service


It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.

WIRELESS ROUTER


If you mean by the roadrunner that you are connect via a cable, the reason why the signal may fail and stop you from watching streamed video is that wireless is only 54mbps and not the best speed for streaming, but wired streams at 100mbps and is constant speed whereas wireless doesnt give a constant true speed of 54mbps it can reduce considerably.
