    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

Want to use belkin n150 as wireless access point to ps3 and have no internet


Are you saying you are trying to setup a wireless connection, even though you don't have internet? Impossible!


Normal setup - Connect the ISP modem to main uplink port on router. Then connect pc to any other port. Done!

Now connect PS3 as normal. Look for the Belkin network SSID and Key. There is a small piece of paper underneath the router with default ID and password key. It is also noted on Web Admin page. You can always use the reset to clear any custom settings.

Access point option is only for unsecured connection. Do not use.

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.

Cant connect ps3 wireless to dlink router


The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.

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
