My son is trying to get the free online gaming but keeps being asked for the wep code and is getting very frustrated with this now does he need a separate router to the one which is for my computer and...

...Set up the IP Address. Or if on a router make sure all the plugs are in then cut it off for 3 min (The Ps3 too) then on the router somewhere look for "reset" reset it. now cut the router back off for 3 more min.(never cut ps3 on) then after 3 min online! :)

Cant play online on cod HELP!!!!!!!!!!

try to reboot your router and modem.

step one turn off your ps3 and wirelss router if you have one and un plug them.

step two turn off modem and unplug that.

then wait a few mins.

then plug your modem in and let it fire up so that all lights are working and you have your dsl light is solid.

then plug in your wireless router if you have one and do the same. you should then see the activity light on the modem go off and on.

once your router is ready and fired up then plug in your playstation. and go through the set up process. do a test and make sure it at least passes the IP test.

then try it again if that doesnt work get ahold of your internet provider

hope it works for ya!

PS3 internet connection problems

Hi there
do you run it wirelessly or with an ethnet cable? also have you tried enetering the settings manually from the wireless setup menu? entering the network key in capital letters etc? sky broadband seems to be very fickle. as i have no end of problems with it disconnecting and running very slowly.
