Hi, best way to connect the PS3 is to buy a router, wireless or wired router. and if you go for a wired one, connect the ethernet cable (RJ45) from the PS3 to the Router,

Other option is plug ethernet cable into PS3 & other end into the Network card which will be built into the base unit, otherwise you can buy a ethernet card which should cost you about £10.
but you will need the PC switch on, whenever you want to use the PS3, as well as you will have to configure the network setting to get it working,,

Have a good new year

Connecting LC-52LE810UN to internet

Connecting to the Internet
To connect your TV to the Internet, you must have a broadband Internet connection.
Use an ETHERNET cable (commercially available) to connect the ETHERNET terminal on the TV to your
broadband router (commercially available).
If you do not have a broadband Internet connection, consult the store where you purchased your TV or ask your
Internet service provider or telephone company.

you need to have a cable connected to the ETHERNET port and then you will get more options. You need to connect it to your router ports. hopefully you have DHCP enabled on the router and then all will program automatically

I have ps3 internet but ps network! dns error 80 something and have been signed out of psnetwork! what do i do ?

This means you've been signed out of the playstation network. A problem with your broadband, not your PS3. Check the connection of the ethernet cable from your router to the ps3. Then switch off at the mains both your ps3 and your router. Leave for 30 seconds then turn both back on. Wait till the blue lights on your router are all steady blue not flashing red or orange. Then turn on your PS3, go to network settings, then internet connection test. This will check your internet connection, and whether or not you're signed in to PSN, and also your internet download/upload speed.
Hope this helps.

How do i connect my ps3 to my internet

1 Before you connect to internet you have to complete network settings. If you have not done the same do the following I hope you have the followings available A broadband internet connection A network gateway device such as ADSL modem Ethernet cable
2 Connect the ethernet cable to the system. Select "Network settings" under "settings" in the "home" menu and then press X . When a message stating that the internet connection will be terminated, select 'yes' and press X. On the screen displayed select 'Easy and press the right direction arrow. Check the settings and then press X button.
Similarly a wireless connection can be set up but it will vary with the equipment being used. In this case the ethernet cable is not connected. You have to select 'wireless' after the "Easy" selection step. Then select 'Scan' and then select the access point you want to use.Then select the security settings as necessary. Enter the Encryption key. A list of settings will be displayed. Check the settings and press X. Once this is done PS3 system will automatically connect to the Internet when the system is turned on. This will remain active as long the system is on

The internet connection on my laptop is thru a sprint 3g usb mobile broadband device unfortunately tht is my only nternet connection, how can i connect me ps3 with this device

If you have a cross over cable you could connect your PS3 to your Laptop via the Ethernet port and choose internet connection sharing on the 3G device on your laptop, then just make sure the PS3 and the laptop ethernet settings are set to auto detect settings (DHCP).

Using an ethernet cable, bring the cable into the back ethernet port on the back of the ps3. Go into your connection setting and click set up, and then select wired connection. From there follow the quick online instructions. Test by trying to get onto the playstation store if it works it was successful. The same steps go for wireless. Though I would go for a wired setup.
