    I have a Ps3 and a wireless router. All was working well with the internet, downloads etc. Yesterday the Cable company came to rewire my connection due to poor signal. Now my computer, wii, DS all work great but my PS3 connection will not work anymore. I have checked my router and internet connections and everything else is connecting. I think I may need to reconfigure my network settings but when I try to, the PS3 freezes and I cannot access this part of the toolbox. HELP!

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

it sounds like your internet connection is lagging very badly if it freezes on hitting the home button if you can try to move your ps3 closer to your network wireless router.

Just wanted to know is there any way to get my ps3 online


try opening a portal from you router to your ps3, the router will shut down all the things it need to in order to play your games more efficiently. If that doesn't work try hard wireing your ps3 to your router. If your getting online on your ps3 wirelessly then try moving your router or your ps3 closer together.

Ps3 skips while playing online


Purely and Simply, you need faster internet! Gaming often takes a connection of 10MBPS or greater for the best results. Try not to use wireless for online gaming. Try getting an Ethernet cord and connecting that to your PS3, it's actually must faster.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Can't even connect to "setup assistant"


it sounds like you need to keep using your usb modem to connect to the internet. then setup internet sharing on the computer and connect the wireless router to the network plug on the computer.....

then basically you are sharing the internet to the plug on the back of the pc into the router and then wirelessly out to the network and PS3
