How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?

It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

Slow download with PS3

Turn on "Interface Robustness" in the wireless options. Also disable UPnP in both PS3 and your router.
Try to be as close to the access point as possible.

Need wpa key to set up internet with my ps3 but dont know wat that is?

WPA is a Wireless Internet Authentication technology. It is setup through your home wireless router. If you have home wireless internet, you should know your WPA or WEP key. However, you dont have Wireless, you might just want to run a network cable from your router to the Playstation.

I have a 120 gb silm line ps3 console but a dont no how to hook it up to the internet

If you have a router in place connect the ps3 to it via ethernet cable. If the router is wireless with a WEP or WPA encryption code access the routers login page and get this code. Once you have the cable connected or the code turn on the ps3.
1:>On the ps3 dashboard go to (settings) then scroll down to and select (internet connection) select enable.
2:>Then go back to (settings), then scroll down to the bottom and select (network settings).
3:>Select (internet connection settings). This will bring up your internet setup page.
4:>Now select (easy) method.
5:>Choose wether wired or wireless. If wired skip to 8.
6:>Wireless will prompt you to select a wireless router (make sure you select your router) cause you may find others besides yours.
7:>After your router is selected it will prompt you to select either WEP or WPA select the one that the router uses and then enter the code.
8:>This will bring up your settings list most everything will be labled automatic. Press enter (X).
9:>Then select (test connection)
10:>After it is done back out.
11:>Now use your computer to go to and make yourself a PSN account with a username and password. After this is done.
12:>On the ps3 dashboard goto playstation network and select sign in, then enter your new PSN account name and password.
If you need anymore info do not hesitate to ask.

Can you hook up the ps 3 to the internet router to get online with out using a computer

do you have a wireless router?

depends on how your internet is set up

but if your internet is set up like this

internet plug on wall>>>wireless router>>>>main computer

then you can connect to the wireless router without having the computer to be on

if you can use the wireless internet using a laptop then i dont see why it wount work for the ps3

if you dont have a wirekless router and your internet router has several eithernet ports then you can run a either net cable from the router to the ps3

Are you using a router? s133pyh34d is assuming you're even using a router. You can not hook up a PS3 directly to a modem like you can a computer. Wired or wireless, you need a router

Connection interuptted wen playing online!

I am guessing the PS3 is hooked up through a router, either wired or wirelessly. You need to browse the router setup for the IP address of the PS3, then put the IP of the PS3 into the DMZ, also in the router setup. This should clear up any connection problems

Need help with ps3 internet hook up

you can go wireless, but personally wired is better. what router do you have? switch everything off, plug a ethernet cable from one of your ports on router to ps3 then then switch it all on. on ps3 go to settings - network settings - internet connection settings - then select easy - then whether you wanna do it wireless or wired (up to you) then let it do its thing, once its found all your settings you can test the connection.
Have you set up an account on your ps3 yet?
