Hi

Sony are currently working on the problem which lies with their server. It is overloaded due to new game releases and updates.

This is a widespread problem at the moment with many users reporting connection problems and the problem is highly unlikely to be at your end.

Because of this there is very little you can do unless you try connecting to the internet at off peak times when congestion is low and meanwhile wait for Sony to resolve the overall issue with the PSN server.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Server conection timed out (80028e06)


Can you access the internet with a computer still?

Try rebooting the PS3 and the router. Reboot the router first, wait a few minutes, then reboot the PS3.

Which firmware version are you running?

The connection to the playstation network fails


sounds like a problem with the wireless network card.

Go thru these instructions to get your ps3 to recognize your wireless router, if it doesn't work then you know that your wireless network card in the ps3 is bad:

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work


if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

PS3 wont connect to internet


Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3
