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.

My linksys WRT54GP2 wont connect to my ps3 ive done everything write it keeps comming up to check my wireless settings what do i do


Have you tried connecting it through a wired connection? Although PS3 is wireless, it is generally a more stable connection when connected through a wired connection rather than wirelessly.

All of my computers connect to the internet but my ps3 wont


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.

Hope this helps!

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.

HOW DO I CONNECT DIR165 TO PS3 I HAVE ENTERED THE LAN AND ALL THE OTHER ADDRESSES BUT IT WONT CONNECT


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.

Add those "wireless" settings into your PS3.

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

Cannot connect other devices to my router


You reset it to open, no encryption and it still didn't work? HMMM. You are able to get your PS3 online? but can't connect your laptop and desktop? Are you hard wiring the desktop to the router? or are you trying to connect it wirelessly? If you are configuring your router with either the laptop or desktop, make sure the IP settings on your connection manager are set to the correct domain under Local Area Connection Properties, like 192.168.1.226, or something similar. Login to the router with your admin credentials. Make sure in your configuration (as instructed in your manual) that you have the router time set correctly so the lease time for your devices aren't expired. Apply settings. After exiting your router configuration screen, go back to your connections manager, either wireless connection, or ethernet adapter in your network connections folder, and under the General tab of the Local Area Connection Properties, change the properties of your TCP/IP client back to "Obtain an IP Address Automatically." Click "Close" and your computer should show "Connected."
