My ps3 freezes when i try to play online


Alexander, you left out some important info, so this is just guess work. Can you play games fine off line? If yes, then you are having a connection issue. First, WIRED? or WIFI? Connecting with the Wireless, will alwayes have a weaker signal, and lower bandwidth(mbps) Than if you are (HARD WIRED). Try using a CAT5 Ethernet cable and wiring directly into your ISP'S modem. When you do a speed test on the system, you are looking for around 10mbps or greater download speed. If you can't get at least 10mbps, then you will have system lags and hang-ups.

Ps3 error code 80029020


Make sure UPnP is enabled on the PS3 and Router.
Place the PS3 in the DMZ of the router or find the appropriate ports to forward to the PS3's connecting IP (set to static in the PS3 if you have it setting dynamicly in the PS3 for either)
If this does not help, do a forum search there are a ton of answers for this on on the Network board here.

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)


Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

When playing ps3 game live i get kicked off the games what is going on


Are you running the live game play through the internal WiFi card or a wired Ethernet cable? If you can try hooking up an Ethernet cable and it solves the problem, you are getting interference from something and you'll have to move the PS3 closer to your router or just try to keep it on the Ethernet cable for online play. That's what I use because it is much more reliable and much faster than WiFi.

If you are running with an Ethernet cable and you are still having problems, the problem may not be with your PS3 but with your router or internet connection. Try moving the cable to another outlet on the router. Check your network settings on the PS3 amd try to set up the network to automatically detect settings.

Depending on the game, you may be kicked off by other users in the game. I've had that happen a couple times because everyone's a critic.

I hope this helps. Good luck and have fun online! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

PS3 internet problem


Hi, best way to connect the PS3 is to buy a router, wireless or wired router. and if you go for a wired one, connect the ethernet cable (RJ45) from the PS3 to the Router,

Other option is plug ethernet cable into PS3 & other end into the Network card which will be built into the base unit, otherwise you can buy a ethernet card which should cost you about £10.
but you will need the PC switch on, whenever you want to use the PS3, as well as you will have to configure the network setting to get it working,,

Have a good new year
