How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

I need help hooking my PS3 wireless


Hi

You have not specified what kind of connection are you going to use to get online on your PS3, i am listing steps below first for a wireless connection in case you have a internet connection with a wireless router or modem.

Make sure that your wireless Internet is turned on and working properly,Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and follow these steps below

1) Access the "Network Settings" screen under the "Settings" screen in the main menu.

2) Select the "Internet Connection" tab and select "yes" when the system displays a new screen.

3) Select "easy" on the new screen that pops up asking what type of installation you want to use.

4) Select "wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.

5) Select "scan" on the next screen so that the system searches for all available Internet connections in the area.

6) Select your home Internet when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options.

7) Save your settings on the next screen.

8) Test the connection to make sure that it works properly, also you would need to enter the secure password if you have set it for your wireless modem our router for wifi access in order to connect it with your PS3.

Now for connecting your PS3 through a wired internet connection you can follow the instructions given at this link, this is with diagrams for you to understand better.

Let me know if this helps and please do not forget to rate my solution

Wish you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Do I need a 2nd modem to hook my ps3 up to the internet? My ps3 is no where near my computer...how can I get it hooked up to the internet?


I would use a wireless router. Then you can use ps3 or laptop in the house. Or run ethernet from main router/modem to the ps3. You can buy the ethernet cables at amazon.com and newegg.com and they can go a few hundred feet.

Pc not finding network ...internet working (going thru router) but not finding network. cant get to login screen for router to adjust any settings. Ps3 cant communicate with wireless router either....


I think you will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
try changing the wireless channel on the router.
make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled.
for this you will need to access the router set up.

I cant get my ps3 to hook up to my internet


Use the PS3's Internet connection test under Systems Settings to determine if you've access to the web. If this test fails you will need to do the following:
1) Reset your DSL modem.
2) Once the cycle is completed, run the Internet Setup under Systems Settings within your PS3.
3) Follow the instructions you should be able to gain access to the web and online game play.

How do i hook up my ps3 to my network wirelessly


Make sure the same SSID and network key is configured on your PS3's wireless settings. To get the SSID and network key do the following steps.

1. Open your Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the Address Bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. Type admin on the password, leave it blank for username. If admin password doesn't work, type your own password.
3. When you get to the Setup page of the router, go to Wireless tab. Take not of the SSID or the Wireless Network Name.
4. Now click the sub-tab Wireless Security that's under the Wireless tab. Take note of the Security Mode. If it is WPA-Personal, take note of the Shared Key or Passphrase. If the Security Mode is WEP, take note of the WEP key # 1.

5. Now all you need to do is access the Wireless Settings of your PS3 and configure manually the SSID and the Security Key. Then reboot the router and PS3. That should do it.
