Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

    Yes, any of those stores will have pre-cut lengths of various sizes, some as long as 30ft. or more maybe available.

    I had a thought, and after some internet searching, I found a great website that sells near custom lengths of Ethernet cables that are better than the original CAT5e Ethernet cables you find in wal*mart. They are CAT6 (faster speeds and higher bandwidth) and they're cheaper than at wal*mart. I'm not sure how to purchase because I have no need for new cables (yet) but I'm sure they could deliver them to you. They even accept paypal! (paypal is free and safer than a regular credit card but you can still use the same cards as before) Here's their website:

    http://www.networkcablesonline.com/CAT6-...

    Check it out and let me know how things work with the new cable, if it helps you fix the problem. They also have cat 5e which is slightly cheaper but will work fine for online gaming. (that's the stuff they sell at wal*mart) Good luck and thanks for the awsome rating!

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.
