How do I redeem codes or sign in for the first time on play station network

It's actually quite easy to setup an account on the Playstation network (PSN) for the first time. You can setup your account using either your computer or your Playstation. Both will need to have internet access. Simply go to the link below if using your computer, and click on setup account. If using your Playstation, power on the console, without a game inside, scroll over to setup and connect your Playstation to your network. Once connected, scroll over to sign-in. You will be able to setup your account, such as user-name, password and demographics. Good luck.

I cant sign into playstation network even though i enter the right password

Signing into the playstation network involves more than just entering the correct username and password.
Sometimes, you may happen to have a poor internet connection and as a result, it might be unable to sign into your account.
Also, most times, they may be undergoing some maintenance services and would not allow anybody to sign in during those times.
It is not a new thing for people having trouble signing into the playstation network. It is not yet a very solid community so it still has a few bugs or troubleshooting to do.
If it doesn't sign in at the moment, you can wait and try again in another 15 minutes and be sure your connection is good enough.

Error code 80710B23 appearing for last 24 hours on my playstation three what does this mean, when trying to connect to internet.

It is easy,
If you have a cable modem connection, you should never see this error message.
Only most of DSL customers have this problem because you need to get to network settings and set the MTU manually to 1492 instead of the default 1500.
This is a 100% fix for this error message.
I wish the moderator will erase all other solutions on this board because they were all wrong and does not work.
I hope this helps.

The problem is actually with how your DSL communicates with the Playstation Network, your router and dsl connection are fine, but the settings will have to be adjusted to connect to the playstation network. DSL connections allow for you to configure your MTU which is basically the maximum size of the packet of data that you can send via your connection.
Depending on your DSL connection the MTU typically has to be lowered from the standard 1500 to 1492 or maybe as low as 1370 to connect to the playstation network.

If this isn't the problem the only other thing I have seen cause this is the security being set to high on the wifi router. I have heard of people trying to use WPA2 encryption and it not connection but lowering it to WPA or even WEP and it would connect. I see this a lot with the Nintendo network.

Try changing the MTU, then the security if that doesn't work just to see. Make sure you power cycle to ensure the changes take effect. if neither of the above work let me know and we can troubleshoot from there.

Playstation network wont log in

Several things could fix this problem.

First, please please please do not turn off your PS3 from the back switch. Hold your finger over the front power slot for a few seconds until it beeps if you have to force it off. Powering it off from the back could potentially damage your hard drive and lead to a mess of errors.

First thing to check is your router. Make sure that your settings are all default for setup, or if not, write down everything you do when setting it up. Be careful not to over-encrypt it because your unit will have a hard time recognizing the connection.

If your router is older, you might need to consider buying a new one. People will tell you G is better than N but I had a G that was very choppy and 3 years old. I switched to a Belkin N and now I'm the host for pretty much every game because my connection is so good.

Distance from router to PS3 is also a key thing to check. The further away you are the slower the connection. My router is 15 feet from my PS3 and there are 2 walls in the way.

If you have huge downloads using the internet browser, this will slow your system drastically. Be carefull that you don't download huge videos from websites.

Cable and DSL internet have different effects. DSL is consistant but it's just a tad slower than cable. Cable is faster and more reliable, but not as smooth. I've played on both and surprisingly the most problems come from Cable. Make sure that your computer can connect to the internet; ensure your router is set to recognize new networks (should be a button on the front center for newer models) and then attempt to connect your PS3 to the PSN.

If all else fails you may need to reset your PS3. Get a thumb drive of good capacity and save all your game saves to it before doing this so you don't lose anything.

Let me know if this helps and rate me accordingly.

Ps3 wont let me sign in to PlayStation Network

It has worked before, right? Have you checked your network? Are you wirelessly connected? Can other computer go on the internet fine? Try resetting your wireless router and cable/dsl modem and then resetting your ps3 to see if that works.

Hope this helps,

Connect router to playstation 3

You need to first plug the DSL modem into the router. log on to the router. Configure the router byusing the user name and password as supplied by your dsl provider. once the router connects to your dsl provider, you should be able to connect your playstation to the wireless network.

Well it look like you might not have a WiFi network connection set up yet on your PSP. So This is what you want to do if you have DSL at home and a WiFi router. When you search for a new network connection and you find the one from your home, you will still need the WEP key wich is the most inportant in order to allow you PSP to use that WiFi connection. That must be why you are getting this error messege
