If you are using a router, the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS3 from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation 3 then move it close to the PS3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS3 to your modem, press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS3 on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually) If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go.
First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :- wii.php">http://fixhomenetwork.com/xbox-play-station-wii.php
Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.
gucciskills, this is a common problem if you have other people using your home internet connection at the same time. I have that problem every now and then even with no one on the home PC. It just means you are losing your connection. Try and reconfigure your router setting and see if that helps.
Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins.
Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light
Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.
