    You'll also likely need to enable port forwarding if you expect to play online...check your FAQ for your router online.

    I assume your PS3 has a wi-fi interface which you've set-up to find your home network? If not, try to "find" it via your PS3. Is your router "broadcasting" its "SSID"? If not, then your PS3 won't find it, and you'll have to manually configure it to work with your router.
    Have you gone into (logged-in) your router to see which wireless devices it's expecting to connect. You'll need to add your PS3's wi-fi adapter as a Trusted Device. Look at your adapter and see if you can find the "MAC Address" written on it. Post back when you do.

You can auto config your network settings on the ps3, make sure you see your wiresless network, if you dont your router is not broadcasting its ssid and you need to activate it by logging into your router from a pc ( in a browser go to "192.168.1.1", username is "admin" password ia "admin" or nothing, unless you set up otherwise)

If you dont remember your WEP/WPA code you can find it under "wireless" then "security" in the router once you have gained access as mentioned above.

If all of above is ok then check your IP on your ps3 in settings, network status (i think havent done it in a while) make note of it and go back to the router as mentioned above. click applications and gaming then dmz, enable dmz and type in the ps3 ip, save settings and perform a 30 second reboot to the router (unplug it for 30 seconds) all should be good!

one last note if you have configured everything and you cant connect or it takes ages to do anything, you may need to reposition the router, mine is on the otherside of the room and is working great =p

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

I have a PS3 120GB. Recently installed Hi-Def and wireless in home. The wireless router is not in same room with PS3. Is there a device I can add to the PS3 to enable the wireless features, or does it have...


there is already a built in wireless device for the internet. id say its not working because you need to put your I.P adress, subnet mask, router and DNS numbers into playstation. go to settings on ps3. then network settings. manually install all these numbers. you should be able to get them off your laptop or computer when its connected to the internet. if you cant ring your internet provider to grt them.

Cant connect my ps3 psp go to the internet using


Check to see if your router has backwards compatibility to wireless G because the N router uses 256bit encryption coding while the G uses 128 bit encoding. PS3,and PSP use the 128 encryption coding also. If the router does not support 128 bit encoding you will never connect with it.

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.

Sony ps3 online


First off do you have wireless internet you trying to get it connected to or are you using a cord straight to your computer/internet plug in, if its connected to a wi-fi try getting the ps3 closer to the wireless box on you computer, if its connected by a cord try using a different cord as the current one you are using may be faulty
