Need to know how to hook up for online play

Here are some steps for you to follow and check through if you got some already done: First and foremost, you MUST buy a network adapter, without it you cannot get online. After that install it by removing the Expansion Bay cover and plug it in. Screw in the screws with a coin to keep it secure. 3. Connect you network adapter to the Ethernet port slot and the other end to where you connect your Internet to. 4. Follow the steps provided to connect to the Internet which will be in the instruction manual if you bought your network adapter new, or it will be a run-through included within the game, or you can find the steps here:

Can play online but says cant sign into messinger

The "Can't connect to messenger" error does not apply to in game chat or voice messaging, but only to the version of MSN that can be downloaded from xbox LIVE. Go to network settings, then test the connection to the internet. If it says that your NAT type is moderate or High, you need to do some port forwarding on your router. You can find how to do this on Xbox's main site. The port to be forwarded needs to be number 3074. (or something to that effect)

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
