Getting error code 8001000a


__you can try this:______

I struggled setting up the wireless internet connection on my PS3. It seemed that no matter what I did, I kept getting the error message 8001000B. After reading some help materials on this website, I determined that I needed to add to my router list of allowable MAC addresses the PS3 MAC address. Once I did this, the setup was as easy as shown on the manual.

Steps:

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__or this:___

After looking over the internet for answers I found a fix for the 8001000A and when the Playstation 3 (with firmware version 2.76) is hooked to a wireless router (in my case a Netgear WNR834B v2). Below are the steps I took.
  1. Reset your router to factory defaults.
  2. Go to Select Network Settings under Settings in the home menu.
  3. Select Easy then Wireless.
  4. Then select Enter Manually. Then enter in your SSID of your router. Then rest of the setting should be set to Automatic.
  5. However DO NOT TEST CONNECTION. Just save and turn off the playstation3.
  6. Then turn off Playstation 3 from the back of the drive.
  7. Unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds.
  8. Plug the power cord in and turn on the Playstation 3 switch.
  9. Wait 5 seconds and turn on the Playstation 3 and it will work. You can even test your connection and it will work.
However if you want your security settings on the router then once the router settings are back then repeat steps 2 through 9. Hope this works for all. I do not think replacing the unit is the answer. Any question just let me know.

Wireless


what ever the password is for the wireless router when it was set up for 'wireless'. If you are using the wirless router you need to choose which network you are logging onto and then put in the password to get access to it. If you do not know it ask the person who set up the router what password they used.

After hooking up wireless router model #WRT54G2, all I get is a error code that my either net cable is unplugged when it is connected per installation CD (checked it numerous times) Is my cable defective?


The problem is one of three things. The order of replacement is as follows:

1. Bad Cable
2. Bad Network jack connection
3. Bad router

When items are functioning properly you will have connect LEDs on the network card and the router. Also ensure that you TCP/IP setting are set to obtain an IP address automatically
