I have ethernet cable connected to my cable modem but still wont conect to internet

If it's failing the IP test, that would imply that it can't talk to your router, not the internet, since that's where it gets it's IP address from. (Although XBox may do this with an internet check) So:
-First, have you tried a different ethernet cable to the XBox; one that you know is good?
-Secondly, ports on the switch can go bad without the whole switch failing. Have you tried plugging it in to a different one in the router?
-Assuming you have a dynamic service such as a cable modem, have you tried plugging the XBox directly into that modem wire coming out to the router?

Be sure to power cycle the XBox on each of these checks so you remind it to go out and check for a connection. ( this would be the same as ps3 also)

Ps3 wont let me choose wireless as an option to go online only ethernet cable

Dis-connect the ethernet cable from the back of the PS3 if there is one connected or go to custom instead of easy and you'll get to choose between wireless or wired. In custom just go through everything clicking do not use or automatic after you have entered your password and everything.

Good luck.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?

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!

Ps3 ethernet

The easiest way would be to disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the PS3. The PS3 doesn't care if it shares a cable as it really only meeds one when you want to be online. There is no setting for the "cable" all you do is unplug from the back of your computer and then plug it into the PS3; reverse when you are finished playing.

I hope this answers your question.

Can't connect ps3 internet

Try entering the WAP code or whatever security you have correctly. If it still refuses to work try plugging in your brain by sticking your index finger and middle finger in the socket.

Ps3 online

ps3 has a built in wireless adapter.rather than having wires all over, get a wireless router.connect the router to your modem with an ethernet.once you have the wireless router up and running,you will have whats called an "access point" for any devices to connect to wirelessly (within a reasonable distance),such as the ps3.
