Dear
If you have a wi-fi router - you can use PS3's wi-fi feature (available in all models except long gone 20GB). If you have a wired router - just get RJ-45 cable (Ethernet) and plug your PS3 into the router.
After that - go to Network Settings in menu and follow the instructions.
Nac address is not the ip address but the network card ID

Go into the network settings, select connection type.

Pick the wireless option, and select 'SCAN', your Sky router will come up.

Go right, select the type of securing setting (check what type this is by logging onto you router).

Enter the password.

U may require a WAP key for the connection.

Or do something like this

1.Go to network settings in settings menu.
2.Then go to internet connection settings.
3.Then select easy.
4.Select wireless.
5.Select scan.
6.Select your router from the list.
7.Make sure the ssid is correct(The same as the one on the bottom of the router)
8.Select WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK.
9.Type in the network key that is on the bottom of the router(In capitals)
10.Make sure everything is correct.
11.Test connection.

Hope this would help U dear. Please rate the answer if it helps u.
Thanks
Enjoy

Getting error code 8001000a


__you can try this:______

I struggled setting up the wireless internet connection on my PS3. It seemed that no matter what I did, I kept getting the error message 8001000B. After reading some help materials on this website, I determined that I needed to add to my router list of allowable MAC addresses the PS3 MAC address. Once I did this, the setup was as easy as shown on the manual.

Steps:

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__or this:___

After looking over the internet for answers I found a fix for the 8001000A and when the Playstation 3 (with firmware version 2.76) is hooked to a wireless router (in my case a Netgear WNR834B v2). Below are the steps I took.
  1. Reset your router to factory defaults.
  2. Go to Select Network Settings under Settings in the home menu.
  3. Select Easy then Wireless.
  4. Then select Enter Manually. Then enter in your SSID of your router. Then rest of the setting should be set to Automatic.
  5. However DO NOT TEST CONNECTION. Just save and turn off the playstation3.
  6. Then turn off Playstation 3 from the back of the drive.
  7. Unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds.
  8. Plug the power cord in and turn on the Playstation 3 switch.
  9. Wait 5 seconds and turn on the Playstation 3 and it will work. You can even test your connection and it will work.
However if you want your security settings on the router then once the router settings are back then repeat steps 2 through 9. Hope this works for all. I do not think replacing the unit is the answer. Any question just let me know.

2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
