Do an internet connection test. Your NAT type should be either 1 or 2. If not then there are some restricted ports on your router.

I find that putting your PS3 in your router's DMZ (demilitarized zone), solves all connection problems.

SOURCE: my ps3 won't play anything. no movies or games

I'm afraid your PS3 is dead. It's very rare, it happened to me too. Nobody's sure why it happens, but it just stops reading any disks at all, even though it retains all other functionality.

You've got to take it back to wherever you bought it with a reciept and they can either replace it or send it off to Sony for it to be fixed.

SOURCE: PS3 can't detect access point

i have some solutions..
1. if there's lots of walls between the router and your ps3 it may not detect the signal. i had a very weak signal until i moved some stuff around.
2. you can manually type in your wireless name and i think it should at least reconize it, and maybe connect.
3. make sure theres no firewalls or anything to block other connections from entering your signal.
thats all i can say, sorry im not a tech guy-only 17!

How can i get netflix to my tv


You can set up a Netflix account online from a computer. Once you have a Netflix account you would need a "Smart" TV to access Netflix. Your TV does not have the Netflix application... so you need another way to get Netflix, such as a game console (PS3/PS4/XBOX) or some sort of streaming TV box. It will connect to an HDMI port

Why won't my netflix for ps3 let me sign in?


Typically, this issue is resolved by logging into Netflix via PC and making sure the log in information matches the info on the PS3. Also, be aware that the standard package for Netflix allows only 2 devices to access Netflix from 1 account at the same time. For example, if you are watching Netflix on your PC in 1 room, and someone is watching it on a PS3, then you won't be able to access it from a Smart Phone or other devise, until 1 is disconnected from Netflix.

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.

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.

On my ps3 It won't let me play online or watch


The Playstation Network is literally undergoing maintenance after being Hacked. The Servers are all down so no one can use the network for now. It is not an issue with your system so don't be worried.

Hope this helps.

I am hooked up wireless to my ps3 but when i try to watch a movie on Netflix it only plays for 30 seconds and buffers, then plays for 30 seconds and buffers. I can put my laptop next to the ps3 and...


First restart the ps3 and try to load the movie again see if that helps or not.
If the Netflix still only loads on your ps3 but keeps on buffering this might be cause by not enough bandwidth allocated for your ps3. Try turning off your computer and all the devices that are connected the internet. Then try again.

MY 1ST PLAYSTATION JUST STOPPED WORKING WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR, THEN YOU SENT ME ANOTHER ON WITH SERVICE REQUEST W-1000332921. NOW THIS PLAYSTATION 3 STARTS TO HUM SO LOUD I CANNOT HEAR THE TELEVISION...


1. The hum you hear is probably the heat-sink fan, sometimes if you get some compressed air and use it in the bottom air vents it will go away.

I just want a little more info on the Netflix issue. Just to confirm I'm on the same page as you.
When you are trying to use Netflix are you using the PS3 web browser or signing into PSN?
The reason I ask is that in order to use Netflix on a PS3 you have to sign into the PSN with the email aand password you would use to play a online and the download the Netflix program from PSN, after install would then choose the Netflix icon and then use the sign on info required by Netflix. If you have done all of this, try doing a factory reset on your modem/router. I run Netflix on my console too and with the PS3 you won't need a authorization code to access your account.

If none of this works let me know.

My netflix wont let me sign in. its asking for my ps3's activation code what is that and where can i find it?


hard question but I know the answer

please remember to rate me highly

NETFLIX:

with the PS3 you need a special disc. Luckily Netflix will send you that disc - to keep - for free. So just log into your Netflix account and go to the "Your Account" area. In there, under "Your Netflix ready devices and computers", you'll have an entry for your PS3 (and for your XBox if you have one of each). Have Netflix send you the free disc.

When you get the disc, put it into your PS3 and turn it on. You'll be shown an activation code on your TV screen. When you then go to Netflix.com, you'll be asked to enter that activation code. That will connect your PS3 with your Netflix account.

Now you're all set! On your Netflix.com account, browse through their thousands of movies and TV shows. Select the ones you want to put into your online watching queue. You can search and sort, read reviews. Fill your online queue with whatever you're interested in.

Web setup


With a Wi-Fi compatible game inserted into your Nintendo DS, access the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings screen. Your game manual provides information on how to do this for the game you are playing.
  1. Tap Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
  2. Tap one of the Connection slots
  3. Tap "Search For An Access Point"

The Nintendo DS will then display the name of your wireless access point.
If your Access Point has a blue, unlocked icon, tap the Access Point name, and then 'OK.' The Nintendo DS will then establish a connection with your router. Back out to the main screen of your game and your ready to play online.

If your Access Point has a red, locked icon, the Nintendo DS has detected WEP key security on your router. Tap the Access Point name on the Nintendo DS and then enter the WEP key for your router on the following screen and tap 'OK' to save the settings.

Tap 'OK' again and the Nintendo DS will then establish a connection with your router. Back out to the main screen of your game and your ready to play online.

If your Access Point has a gray, locked icon, the Nintendo DS has determined your router's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS. In order to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, you will need to either switch to WEP security, or remove the security setting of your router when connecting with the Nintendo DS.
