Your problem must be about several causes, please check them :

  1. Problems with your broadband internet service . In this case, you should contact it's support centre .
  2. Problem with your wireless connection (if any) . In this case, check you signal strenght (recommended to be 20%+) or any active security service.
  3. If none of there problems, try setting all configurations on console to AUTOMATIC . If this doesn't work , check all your settings as PPPoE auth (if any) .

Disc makes funny noises when loading and cant connect to the internet. i bought it at a pawn shop and dont know how to tell if there is anything wrong with it but the warrenty is voided.


Hi and welcome to FixYa

Ok for the internet problems try connecting it directly to your internet modem without the router and also try connecting it with the wireless option of the ps3, if none of those options works, your ps3 network card is pretty much fried. About the disc making funny noise you might want to first if you know nothing about ps3 take it to a repair store after the diagnostic of the funny noises the next symptom you are going to get is problems reading bluray discs and after that you will probably have to replace the WHOLE DRIVE piece or if you are lucky just the PS3 lens. here are links for more info about prices:

PS3 Whole Drive:

remember after buying any of those check your PS3 Model.

Sincerely,

What do I need to connect the PS3 to the internet so my boys can play online ? Hardline or will WIFI work ?


Any of the two will work it all depends on preference. If the modem or router is too far from the console then you would most likely want to go wireless. Here are instructions how to do each:
WIRELESS (WIFI):
Step 1: Turn on the PS3
Step 2: Once on main menu go to settings and under settings select "Network Settings"
Step 3: Select "Internet connection settings" if prompted that you will be disconnected from the internet select "Yes".
Step4: Select "Easy" on types of installation.
Step 5: Select "Wireless" to choose what kind of internet connection you want.
Step 6: Select "Scan" to search for internet access points.
Step 7: Select your home connection when the screen comes up with all the found access points. If your home Internet access point requires a password enter the password when prompted and save your settings.
Step 8: Test the connection to check if you configured your settings right if successful you are good to go. If not go back and check your connection settings for your home internet access point. You are now connected to the internet!
HARDLINE (Wired): Must connect ethernet cable to PS3 before turning it on!
Goes like this: Arrows are the cable (===>)
Internet Line ===>Router ===>PS3
Step 1: Turn on the PS3
Step 2: Once on main menu go to settings and under settings select "Network Settings"
Step 3: Go to "Internet Connection" and select it to Enable it.
Step 4: Select "Internet Connection Settings"
Step 5: Select "Internet connection settings" if prompted that you will be disconnected from the internet select "Yes".
Step 6: Select "Easy" on types of installation.
Step 7: PS3 will automatically check your connection network setup and set the settings for you.
Step 8: The settings will appear and press x to save the settings.
Step 9: Test your connection if it was successful you will see succeeded nest to "Obtain IPAddress" and "Internet Connection" you are now connected to the internet!

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
