You are going to have to upgrade the firmware manually..download it with your computer to a external hard drive.from the playstation website...then plug it in to your ps3.. it should upgrade automatically..
then if you say nothing happens you mean like black out??
if so then try doing this recovery boot.
Access the PS3 recovery menu
1. Turn off Playstationps3 dead after firmware upgrade - 2.gif®3.
2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be promted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
..I did this and i got my ps3 Back !! :)

be patient and wait for those beeps.. they are important
Please let me know if i helped you at all please vote.. thank you

No connection through wireless


Check if the router has been setup as an access point. Sounds like the router is not assigning any IP addresses to the machines. Enable router to work as a DHCP server or if you dont want it to act as a DHCP server then check whether your ISP modem is set to act as a DHCP server. One way or another the devices in your network need to be assigned IP's either automatically via DHCP or manually.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks
