You need to setup your connection.

Are you using a wired or wireless connection?

Ps3 error code 80029020


Make sure UPnP is enabled on the PS3 and Router.
Place the PS3 in the DMZ of the router or find the appropriate ports to forward to the PS3's connecting IP (set to static in the PS3 if you have it setting dynamicly in the PS3 for either)
If this does not help, do a forum search there are a ton of answers for this on on the Network board here.

First make sure that your PS3 connects with your acces point eather wireless or with wire, te second step is configurate your PS3 for wire connection or wireless connection.
These settings are found under the network settings.
Also see the manual to see how you need to configurate the PS3 in detail.

Allso make sure when the PS3 is connected corectly to the acces point that the firewall of the acces point is not interfearing the connection.

Hello ps3. connection test fails all the time. i cant play online. help


if your wlan light isnt blinking, that might be your ethernet connection. try switching your ethernet connection from your computer to your ps3 ( if you have a wireless router ) if not keep it there but change your phone wire connections.

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)


Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

Check to see if you have the latest firmware version installed on your router.

Cradlepoint Firmware

Upgrade if it isn't, report back after trying to connect again.

IP Address "Failed"


restore your default settings. check your security key and you shoudl be good to go. it's nothing with your ps3 and probably just something with yoru router. also try restoring the default settings and just connecting directly to your router or your modem with an ethernet cable

PS3 wireless internet problems


It sounds like a defective wireless antenna. Connect your PS3 via a long network cable and see if you can get online. If you can, the problem is a defective antenna.

Assuming you purchased the PS3 from a store and have the reciept, you should be able to get it swapped or fixed via warranty.

Good luck and take care,
