I'm not even trying to get online an i cant play any of my games because of this 8001050f ****

If you see an error #8001020F you have run up against the current global issue with the Playstation Network. Most PS3 games will check the trophy status online before they load whether you are actually playing online or not. Sony is aware of the issue and is working on it. They have not released an ETA at this time. The only thing you can do is to keep on trying the games.

Hello ps3. connection test fails all the time. i cant play online. help

if your wlan light isnt blinking, that might be your ethernet connection. try switching your ethernet connection from your computer to your ps3 ( if you have a wireless router ) if not keep it there but change your phone wire connections.

My ps3 got the (red ring of death) with game stuck in it

ok for one your title is wrong, ps3 can never get red ring of death only xbox 360, now about your problem for starters to get your old email, try looking on the play station network on the computer preferably and try to request your email.
and because your ps3 froze up its the internet line maybe because people download the maps at the same time as you at a 95% chance that they would.
so depending on your internet connection if its wired then you would want to get wireless presuming you have the money for a wireless router, and they come in forms G for like its a 15% worth playing online with it then its MIMO thats like a 25% worth playing on the net with it, then we move onto N and its like a 55% worth playing on the net and N+ its 95% worth playing on the internet because thats the max sort of net connection you can get.
so if this is any use to you hope it was anyway

Simultaneous PS3 and 'net connection probs.

Further to previous you understand correctly. The computer is using a wired connection, the PS3 connects wirelessly. Computer is windows XP. Don't know what firmware is, sorry.
