You'll need to unhook your Ethernet cable from the back of your computer and connect it to the PS3.Or to still be able to use your computer while he's online with the PS3 (good luck with that one) you will need to get a router and another Ethernet cord.It will split the signal between the two and allow them to be used at the same time.Pages 24 thru 30 (PS3 manual)explain how to do the connections with the Ethernet cord or wirelessly if you have wifi.Good luck!

I've changed my modem, I have a 100% connection with my PS3 to the router, IP address and Internet Connection is successful. Playstation Network = FAILED ... how can I fix this???


you can try doing a factory reset on your modem/router also try to hard wire it and see if that gets the PSN to pass, you might even have to set your PS3 up as a DMZ host in your modem/router configuration this will put your PS3 outside the Firewall which can sometimes fix the problem. You can also ty this:

On your router settings, open TCP port 80, port 443, port 5223 and UDP port 3478, port 3479, port 3658.
Disable the media server connection option found under the Network Settings menu option on the Playstation 3.

Can't get online to play this new PS3. The console is hooked up to the TV & Belkin Wireless router. The internet, computer and phone line are in a different room and can't reach to hookup. AT&T is...


There should be no HDMI cable to router. In any situation.

Try the following:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)


Be sure to choose "Wireless" when configuring the settings if you are using wi fi for connectivity.

Can i hook up my ps3 to a wired internet


Wired Connectivity:

The network configuration and connection depends on the connection method and equipment you have.

Important: A router would be required if you want your PS3 and the computer to be connected to the internet at the same time.

The following are mandatory. You need:
  • An Internet connection
  • A cable modem
  • Ethernet cable. (Available with the PS3)

When you have a wired connection to the Internet, it is not necessary to adjust any of the default settings. (It is done automatically). If you aren't able to connect with the default settings, follow the instructions to adjust the settings.


  1. Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, press the x_button.jpg button.
  2. Select "Internet Connection Settings", press the x_button.jpg button.
  3. You will be popped with a message stating the Internet connection will be terminated, select Yes, press the x_button.jpg button.
  4. Select "Wired Connection", press the x_button.jpg button.
  5. Select Easy or Custom and adjust the settings.
    • If you select Easy, then the basic settings are automatically set.
    • If you select Custom, then you need to enter the settings. Refer the settings supplied by your Internet service provider.

Ps3 what do i need to hook up my ps3 to the internet i have wireless apple wireless i believe at


in the menu select settings/network settings/internet connection settings/wireless/auto detect/automatic/ make sure that when you select the wireless that is yours, that you choose the same security setting... if it is 'none' you are in good shape (no password needed). for the others, you will need to type the password exactly as it is on your modem/computer (case sensitive). the following is directly from sony. (just in case)

SETTINGS > NETWORK SETTINGS > INERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS > WIRELESS > WIRED CONNECTION > CUSTOM > MANUAL SETTINGS > AUTO DETECT > AUTOMATIC > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X

if this helps, please rate...if not, respond and i will help you further...thanks

I cant register my ps3 to the playstation network


get your own internet connection, stop stealing your neighbors :)

if you are on your own connection, the check your connection settings, or the settings on your router. try connecting directly to your modem. it's nothing wrong with your ps3, just everything to do with your own network equipment.

PS-III Rock Band - Internet Load While Gaming


Yes, the problem is with the PS3.
When using the PS3, if possible, disconnect any computers and devices (PDA's, PSP's, Phones, etc) that are using the internet both Wireless and Wired.

This should minimize the connections being used.
Another tip is disabling the PS3's Network connection when NOT using the Online features of the PS3. The Ps3 does not have to be connected so that it could be played offline.
