First, does the PS3 "see/find" the wi-fi?
If not, check location of PS3 in relation to transmitter and see if can re-locate either to find/improve.
When found, just enter wi fi "key" into prompt screen.....that should enable connection

SOURCE: PS3 WIRELESS CONNECTION

This code (80711008) is not reffered error code list
Try first to establish a success connection at a nearer distance. Your signal strength might not be strong enough to have a lasting connection

SOURCE: PS3 wont connect to internet

Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3

Problem trying to get internet wireless


First, you have to have a wireless router connected to your modem. If it still doesn't work, you need to mess with the Network Settings on the PS3. Click on Internet Connection and check Enabled. Then you can go through the Internet Connection Settings and go through Easy or Custom and go through that. Then go to Internet Connection Test where it will test the internet on your PS3 if it's working right. Hope that helps!

Cant connect to psn. But i can to internet. :(


One reason this may be happening is having the media sharing option on. Some routers can't handle all the requests the ps3 sends while having this option on. You're using a wireless connection right?

PS3 and Netgear WGR614 V7 Router


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 :-

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.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
