Re: wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work
If you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.
and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet.. If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Let's try the simplest things first. Restart the PS3. Then try restarting your router (unplug/replug it in). Make sure all the cables are nice and snug where they should be in both your router and the PS3.
If going for a wired connection, confirm that the cable to and port/cable slot on your router are good (try another cable and cable slot). If going for a wireless connection, confirm that other devices can access your router wirelessly.
Still having trouble? Check your internet settings on the PS3. Navigate to XMB > Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings. Run through it, selecting Automatic or Auto-Detect whenever possible. If that didn't work try setting it up manually. Here's a guide explaining each option of the manual set up process.
Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.
For details on how to configure the PS3 click on the WEB link :- wii.php">http://fixhomenetwork.com/xbox-play-station-wii.php
The D-link Router should work with its "factory" settings,
with most ISPs (Internet Service Providers), if you connect your
cable-modem or ADSL-modem to the 'WAN' or 'INTERNET' port on the router, and if you use an Ethernet cable to connect from one of the 4 'LAN' ports to the network-port on your desktop/notebook computer.
Once you have established a "wired" connection, and you can surf the Internet, follow the instructions in the manual that came with the D-Link to run the "Wireless Setup Wizard" to configure the "wireless" part of the router.
you need to open a incoming port for the ps3 on your router all you have to do is use the computer to go to your router settings then use whatever ip the ps3 is using and open a port for that ip address that should work but i dont have a ps3 so i dont know you could try that
