How do i reset our wireless network setting on my playstation 3?

We had our wireless connection set up for our ps3 and we had to reboot our wireless router. Now when we try to go on line to play games it says there is no network connection detected. The wireless connection is ok, the laptop works wireless. When we go to the network settings we don't remember what information to put in. is there any way to reset the wireless network settings?

On the back or side of your router their is a button that resets it to the original factory settings. Hold that button down for 5 or more seconds then release it.

Everything should be back to normal, also you will have to reconfigure that router

On the bottom of the router the user name as password might be------> user= Admin Pass=password

You may need to add the PS3 MAC address to the router's list of allowable MAC addresses:

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the router. This is usually done by typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS or similar
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.

sounds like a problem with the wireless network card.

Go thru these instructions to get your ps3 to recognize your wireless router, if it doesn't work then you know that your wireless network card in the ps3 is bad:

Wot error is 80710723????


You have a network/router error. First go to settings, then Network settings, then internet connection settings. If you have a wired connection connection 1 - Custom, then manual settings, then auto detect, then automatic, then Do not set, then manual, DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220, then auto, then do not use, then enable.
If you are using a wireless connection 2 - WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X
and if neither of these works then try turning off your modem for a few minutes and restarting your ps3 =)

you can set your playstation 3 online by two ways, 1- by a wired connection, and 2- Wireless,

1-Wired Connection: Plug an ethernet cable from your highspeed modem to the back ethernet input on your ps3 system, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wired Connection. and follow steps
2- Wireless Connection: You must have a Router connecting ethernet cable from your intenet modem to the router, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wireless Connection and follow steps,

hope this helped you on setting up your ps3 connection :)

Can you hook the ps3 up to the internet wirelessly


Yes you can connect wirelessly to the internet with your ps3.

Minimum Requirements
  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
    Note: PlayStation 3 40GB / 60GB / 80GB / 160GB models ONLY (20GB model does not have built-in Wi-Fi connectivity)
  • SIXAXIS™ wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • A high-speed Internet account (cable or DSL) with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Router

    • Wireless router compatible with 802.11b or 802.11g Wi-Fi standards
    • Or an Ethernet (wired) router with a Wireless Access Point (WAP)
      You may need to open firewall port numberson your router to connect to the Internet.
      The PlayStation 3 will not connect to the Internet through the USB ports.
    //
  • Updated system software installed on your PlayStation 3
    Visit PlayStation 3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • Your Wireless Network Settings

    • SSID
      You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the PlayStation 3 scan results.
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
    • WEP or WPA Security Key
      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
    • MAC address
      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

Playstation 3 help!


I think this is caused from your new ps3 not having the connection to your wireless box, try inputting the wireless key(back of the wireless box) into your ps3 on Network Settings. Hope this helps.

PS3 internet connection problems


Hi there
do you run it wirelessly or with an ethnet cable? also have you tried enetering the settings manually from the wireless setup menu? entering the network key in capital letters etc? sky broadband seems to be very fickle. as i have no end of problems with it disconnecting and running very slowly.

Dns error for ps3


O.K. I had just had that little problem out of nowhere 2 days ago! First off Reboot the Modem, then the Router. When they are done turn on the PS3. In the PS3 Menu go to the 2nd Row from the Left and Down to Network Settings. Choose your setup Wired or Wireless. Choose DHCP and AUTO all the way through. If you are Wireless you will need your CODE! When done wait a minute then run the Network test right below in the Menu. You should be Good! This should reset your Network Automatically!
