No Wireless For 80 G

I read that you can only hook up a 60G PS3 to a wireless internet connection is this true??? If it is then why does my 80G model give me the option of connecting to a wireless connection???


Also when I try to type my WEP encryption code using the on screen keyboard why does it show two stars for every character inputed???

Re: No Wireless For 80 G

The 80 GB model does include wireless connection but there is no 80 GB version on sale in the UK (and the states as far as i know) so thats why it is not listed. there is also a new 40 GB version which will also have wifi. about the code input thing that seems very weird and i suggest using your controller to input the password.

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?

It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

Want to connect non wireless remote controls to console

No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped

Ps2 game not working on the ps3.

If you have the 40G model, it will not support the backwards compatability. However, the 80G and the 60G PAL models do support it. Check the model you have, and if it's a 40G, then it will not play ps2 games.

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.
