I had a similar problem with my cousins playstation. we found a solution by turning of the modem/router and the playstation completly (the switch on the back), plugging the ethernet cable in the playstation, and then turning them both on. it should register and work completly. hope this helps :)

I have the same problem but here's what I'll do and you should do, call your internet provider (eg.AOL which is America Online) and tell them you need help connecting your PS3 to the internet. Then hopefully they will give you a step by step guide on the phone telling you what to do.

If it still dosen't work call Sony.

Good Luck!!!

Using a wireless router you may need to drop your firewall to connect to the internet on ps3. you definately need a dsl connection and a playstation network account which can be attained at www.playstation.com (Note: some wireless routers have built in firewalls which in some cases cannot be turned off)
if you are using a standard Cat 5 connection through a dsl modem you should be able to connect by plugging in PS3 instead of computer from DSL modem via Cat 5 to PS3. Then setup your system (PS3) for your specific connection.

Try entering the WAP code or whatever security you have correctly. If it still refuses to work try plugging in your brain by sticking your index finger and middle finger in the socket.

A friend of mine has this D-Link DSL-2750U router & is trying to connect his cable internet to the router but failing to do so. We suspect it is a purely ADSL router & does not support ethernet connection...


You need a router which connects to ethernet..ADSL is connected by RJ45(Telephone connection) ... Many cable companies include a router in the Modem (Verizon) others need a router to do wireless which gets connected between the PC and the Modem . the DSL-2750U is well over $2000.00.. a normal wireless router is $50-$100... a regular router gets connected by ethernet to Modem and router ,, then has 4 other connectors .. ehternet to PC.. Also requires power supply. .. wireless has to be setup for the software.

CNet wireless router Model CWR-854V. is causing my Ethernet lite on my DSL modem to blink causing me not to be able to get on internet. Changed all cables no help disconnected Router and modem works...


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the DSL modem, bypassing the router, turn the modem off, turn the modem on, wait 60 seconds, and restart your computer.

Does the Ethernet lamp still blink when Windows is booting, and when you are using the Internet?

Turn the DSL modem off.
Turn the router off.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem, and connect it from the computer to the router.
Turn the router on, and wait 60 seconds, then turn your computer on.
After Windows is running, click Start.
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: default gateway........ 192.168.123.456
If the string starts with '192.168', then your computer *IS* "talking" to the router.
Now, use an Ethernet cable to connect the WAN port on the router to the DSL modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer, and you should be able to web-surf.

I have two ParkerVision WR1500 4-port Wireless DSL/Cable Routers. The first one I have connected my Ethernet Cable from my modem to the WAN port. This is where I get my Internet Signal. My understanding...


You won't get internet connection that way because there is no connection between the first parkervision and the 2nd one.
Best way is use only one parkervision router. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc and 2nd lan port connect to 2nd pc in other room. 2nd way is, use only one parkervision. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc, setup wireless SSID and connect your 2nd pc to this router for internet wirelessly. Assuming your 2nd pc has wireless capability.

How do i connect my ps3 to the internet


you need a router in order to connect to the ps3 internet. It's much easier, just use the ethernet cable into the router and the ps3 and insert the SSID.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

I don't know how to connect my router. please help


If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter


your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.

Well... This is a question with a very broad base for answers.

You can either connect your unit to the internet by way of an ethernet cable connection or by wireless. (Which your model has as a built-in feature.)

You'll of course need a high-speed internet connection and a wireless router. All you should have to do is connect the ethernet cable from the unit to the router.

If you would like to connect by wireless, use the PS3 to locate wireless access points in your local area, find your router and connect to it. I recommend using wireless security of course...

Not sure how else to really answer your question. Let us know if you need more specific instructions here. Please be more specific if you need help with something in particular during the process.
