Connecting my ps3 with a wireless modem

ok you will need a ethernet cable connected from your pc/laptop to your ps3
1st you will need to change sharing settings on your o2 modem
to do this goto manage network connection in there right click on the o2 mobile connection go down to properties go in to properties in there go to sharing and allow other users to use this connection.
2nd when setting up the ps3 you need to change one setting.
on the ps3 go to network settings go dowm to internet connection settings
select costom >wired connection >auto detect> ip adress = automatic >
dhcp = do not set > dsn = automatic > mtu = manual set this to 1420 >proxy sever = do not use > upnp = enable . that it just test your connection .this works good for me wit o2 the only setting changed was the mtu any thing between 1400 to 1450 will work fine ps add lostxbox as friend in psn

Ps3 help

the ps3 has a built in wireless modem. if you do not have a router, you might not be able to connect your ps3 and laptop at the same time.

turn everything off.

now in this order, turn on your ps3 and connect to your wireless verizon modem after it comes back on. do not turn your laptop on, since your modem probably will not give out two dynamic addresses. does the ps3 work now?

PS3 wireless internet problems

It sounds like a defective wireless antenna. Connect your PS3 via a long network cable and see if you can get online. If you can, the problem is a defective antenna.

Assuming you purchased the PS3 from a store and have the reciept, you should be able to get it swapped or fixed via warranty.

Good luck and take care,

if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.
