Is you are using Ethernet via PC, make sure your Internet connection is being shared from your PC. If you are connecting through a router, enable UPNP (see manual), it might help.

Wired or wireless and what model is it? The 20 GB model does not have WiFi on it. Just making sure it was not that model. Also, you may have to mess with the DMZ on your router.

Thanks,
Ced

    How can I connect my ps3 to my computer modem?


    Here is a general guide I wrote. For Vista, however, I think you will have to go to the sharing tab instead of the advanced tab when you are browsing the properties of a connection...
    1. Get a CAT5 or CAT6 crossover cable. The cable that came with the PS3 is a normal Ethernet cable, therefore it cannot be used for this operation.
    2. Make sure you have two sources for network communication. For example, you can have 2 ethernet ports on your computer, or you can have a wireless card and a Ethernet port etc. It helps to draw out a connection blueprint such as this:
    DSL Modem > CAT5 cable > Network Card 1 > Computer > Network Card 2 > CAT5 Crossover cable > PS3
    3. Connect your computer to the modem and verify that you have an Internet connection. Then, click on Start, go to settings, control panel. Double click on Network Connections, and identify the connection to your modem (Network card 1).
    4. Right click on the modem connection, and choose properties. Next, click on the advanced tab (Sharing tab for Vista users), and check the “allow other users to connect…” checkbox. After the checkbox is checked, click on the “Home networking connection” drop down box and select the name of the second network connection. Click OK and exit the properties window.
    5. Finally, connect the CAT5 crossover cable from the second network adapter of the computer to the PS3, and voila, your Internet connection is now routed to your PS3. Please be aware that your computer must be on in order for your PS3 to stay online. In the long run, a router may be a much better device to use than your computer, since it consumes only a fraction of the electricity than your computer does.

    Im currently overseas does anyone know how to connect the ps3 thru the computer with paid internet service


    Need to have 2 network cards in the computer to do this, one for the internet and another to connect the PS3. Once this is done. Open Control Panel and select Network connections. Right-Click your internet connection and select Properties. Open the advance tab and check the box that says (Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection). Click OK. The computer will promt and send a message saying some settings will not take effect till the connection is reset, click OK. Then reset the internet connection. After that start the PS3 and go through the setup for an internet connection.

    PS3 wont connect to internet


    Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3

    Verizon card with ps3


    This can be accomplished by using a network cable called a crossover cable (cat5 type). This cable is used to connect two computers together. With everything off just to be safe connect your computer to the PS 3 using the LAN ports on each. Start the computer and get online with the um150 then turn on the PS 3. In Windowsxp go to start, programs,accessories,communications,
    network setup wizard.Run the wizard. Click next twice and in the third window that pops up you should see Pantech usb modem which is the um150 and local area connection 1 for your computer.
    Mine is realtek Ethernet NIC yours may be different but look to see if you have an ethernet connection with NIC in the description. If the box says that a cable or cables are disconnected click the ignore disconnected radial button and click next. In this window choose the top radial button that says
    this computer connects directly to the internet. Continue through
    the wizard, you won't need printer sharing, and it should have automatically checked the correct connections to be bridged. What this does is bridge the um150 with your NIC through to the PS 3 by the cable. Click next and name your computer and network, you can leave the defaults if you want. Click next to set up the network. At the last window you don't want to set up any other computers so choose the radial button that says "just finish the wizard" should be the last one. The downside to this is that the um150 uses a different IP address every time you connect to the internet so you will have to go through this procedure each time you connect. Now go to the PS 3 and network settings and choose check for wired connection and it should connect.

    Need help with ps3 internet hook up


    The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
    While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
    Goto settings
    Goto network settings
    Goto network connection, select enable
    Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
    Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
    Select wired or wireless
    For wireless use scan or enter manually
    Follow on screen instructions.
    Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
    Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
    If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
