PS3 and thompson ST585v6

Hi my son has a PS3 and has been trying to play online with his friends. We have wirleless broadband through the Thompson ST585v6. If we turn the router off at night ( to save electricity!) it takes ages for him to be able to connect to the internet, if at all. Also on the front of the router box the WLAN light is permanently red.
Any suggestions?
Thanks :-)

So the WLAN is red, it means that there's no wireless connection from your router.

I might advise you to reconfigure the RCA on the wireless settings.

for the PS 3 there are port that you can gather with your PS 3 manufacturer to open on the router, it might help the PS 3 to go online simultaneously.

    try to verify the Internet connection from your ISP, maybe it is not communicating properly. or try to reset your modem for 15 seconds and the lights again.

Can connect to internet, but not playstation network to play call of duty online. no problem with streaming netflix. just get error code when needing to sign into the playstation network.


That is most probably result of server host not working anymore, check Call of duty (for example 4, black ops....etc) _____(Platform, PS2,PS3,XBox,...) online status. If they are not working, for that time you wont be able to play it. As far as you have explained you have configured your console online, so its not problem with you :) Good luck my friend! :)) Thx for asking me.

And please rate my solution! :) Thx in advance .Alex

You'll have to use the PS3's built-in wireless card to connect to your wireless broadband connection, and then set up a Playstation Network account. This should be automatically configured by the PS3, unless your service provider has a set of specific settings that you have to provide the PS3.

My son wants to buy a demo console from a friend - does anyone know if it can play games online being a demo console?


I don't envisage any reason it wouldn't connect online.
The PS3 has both a wired and wireless connection. Once he sets himself up as a user on the PS3, and a PlayStationNetwork ID, he should be be able to play online without any problems.
