    I have the same problem trying to connect my PS3 with the 2700HG router wirelessly. PS3 was able to obtain the IP address but it failed to find the DNS server. Wired connection works with no problem. Please advice.

Ok so for the ps3 you should select the option to scan for your wireless network instead of manually configuring it. if it asks for your wep key, you could find it under your modem. just look for the 10 digit key inside the brackets

It stopped connecting to wireless!

Myra, The PS3 internal antenna when connected to the board, is only a thin protected wire, so it is not the greatest system for range for wifi. However, it would seem the issue you are having is not connecting to the wireless router, but the router to the internet. The PS3 asks after you enter a new connection, if you want to test it. I always do this test and it is valuable. At the top of the test screen, you will see "connection to router"-Pass/fail, then connecting to internet-Pass/fail, then connecting to PSN-pass/fail. Do you have other devices connected to the router you are using? If yes, then you have a more serious problem. If no, then you just have to access the router via PC and set up the correct settings to allow your PS3 to connect to the internet. There are several different routers out there, so you will have to consult the manufacturer to set it up. Just a few key notes here. If you are ok with anyone accessing your internet, simply don't password protect it. And also, make sure that the router is transmitting by making sure it is in"air"mode. If it's not airing the SSID, then no device will pick it up. ^^ I hope this helps, and good luck.

I use to have the ps3 hooked and on a new service moved forgot everything and trying to connect to the wireless interent and it keeps popping up psn failed

Everytime you disconnect from a network you ll have to go into the network settings again to reconnect. Find your wireless connection on the list, select your security, enter password and then hit "test". If all credentials were correct, it will quickly breakdown the connection attempt for you, showing you where the connection succeeded and where it failed to better triangulate the issue. If all connections succeed during the test, simply go back to the main screen and sign on. Hope this helps.

Ps3 problem on NetGear NETGEAR WNDR3300 - RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router everytime we go through the easy set up it the test fails. we spent 3 hours last night trying to manually add the ip address...

if you are going wireless have you typed in the encryption to gain access to the router. in the setup of the ps3 does is ask for passphrase or encryption........ plus it seems it would want to search for available wireless connectivity.......but you may be going hardline with ethernet straight in to the ps3 then it should be almost an automatic type connection set up should be easy.....but the thing i have experienced is that not all modems are compatible with game stations...........there maybe a list of compatible modems for your system..... give me more info on how you are trying to i can further assist

Cannot connect ps3 to Gigaset SE587 router

Before you test you connection see what the percentage of the connection is, if it's less then %50 it won't work with wireless unless you move it into a place with a better connection

Cant connect ps3 wireless to dlink router

The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.

PS3 wireless internet problems

It sounds like a defective wireless antenna. Connect your PS3 via a long network cable and see if you can get online. If you can, the problem is a defective antenna.

Assuming you purchased the PS3 from a store and have the reciept, you should be able to get it swapped or fixed via warranty.

Good luck and take care,

Interner connection

well first is it wired or wireless?

Wired: just plug in your Ethernet Cable in the back of the PS3 and go to Network Settings, Internet Connection and pick wired. do a Connection test and your good to go.

Wireless Network Settings, internet Connection then pick wireless, pick our access point and put any security codes in(WEP, WPA-SK) connection test and it should work.

But i recommend using the Wired connection cause the internet is a lot faster.
