I am trying to reconnect to the internet I put a new modem in for my internet service trying to connect my router to my ps3 and it won't let me can you please tell me what i have to do. Thank You


Hi there,
I see that you have replaced you modem. Have you tried connecting your pc directly to the modem? If you do not have any internet connection when connected directly to the modem, you have to call your Internet Service Provider to setup your new modem. If you can access the internet using your new modem then there is a problem with the router. You have to re-setup your router to make it work.

Cant get online when i run a test it fails on playstation net work then afterwards says you have been disconnected from media server


Hi,
If you are using a router, the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS3 from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation 3 then move it close to the PS3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS3 to your modem, press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS3 on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually) If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go.

Thank you!

Ps3 network issue


First, wire your ps3 directly to the modem, cycle (reset) everything then try the normal connection procedures. You should only have the console, and the modem in the equation for testing purposes, this will let you narrow down the problem. You must turn everything off so that all of the information on both ends will auto refresh.

How to connect my usb modem to the ps3


Recommendation:

Get a Modem and a Router in order for both computer and PS3 to be online at the same time.

PS3 assumes that it is connected to a router/gateway and is not designed to have a modem directly connected to it as would need additional hardware/chips incorporated.

Ps3 wired connection prob.


I can't be certain, but does your ISP rewuire the hardware connecting to it to have a certain MAC address (i.e. the one used to first 'activate' the Internet connection)? If so you may need to 'clone' the MAC address to get online either by a router or some other method.

Ps3 wireless


It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
