Hi mon3ymik3,

1. First of all, connect your routers Internet/WAN port to your cable/DSL modem.
2. Configure your router with the settings your Internet Service Provider gave you. The router usually needs to be configured via either a install disc or it's internal webpage. Look up it's default IP and type it into your browser after: http://

(If you don't know them, call their tech. support).

3. Make sure the internet connection works.

4. Look up the settings for a DHCP server and make sure it's on. This will give all the devices connected to the router an IP address within the range or scope you set in there.

5. Connect your PS3 to one of the other ports of the router.

6. Go to your PS3's network settings, make a new connection and set everything to Automatic. Your PS3 will "ask" your router for it's settings.

7. Run a connection test.

8. If test succeeded you should be on your way.

P.S. If you need help configuring your router I will need more information about it. It's brand, it's type etc.

Tell me if it worked.

Greetings,


DarkNeogen

How do I hook my ps3 to the internet using a eithernet cable.?


http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstat...
That website has a great guide on how to setup your ps3 for internet connection.
This is what you need to hook up to the net for your PS3
1.You need a MODEM which is the "box thing" that connects to your pc.
1. You need a ROUTER which connects to your MODEM and in to your PC. The router allows for both the PC and the PS3 to use the internet at teh same time. Unplug the wire that goes into your PC and plug into your ROUTER so that the modem is connected to the router not the PC
3. You need to connect your PS3 to the router with an ethernet cable and your PC to the router with an ethernet cable
4. Go to that web site and follow the instruction on how to set up and account on your PS3 and get going online and have fun!! Good luck!

I try 2 plug my modem up 2 my ps3 but the ip address timed out wat do i do


After you have the Ethernet cable from your modem plugged into your PS3 press and hold the reset button on the back of the modem for about 5-10 seconds. This will reset the modem so that it will recognize the connect to your PS3. Once your done using your PS3 and reconnect the Ethernet cable back to your computer you will have to reset the modem again. Any time you move the Ethernet cable from one device to another you need to reset it after you have the cable connected to what ever device you want to get online with at that time. If you do not want to keep resetting your modem all the time a router will allow for you to have more then one device online at a time. The router will connect to your modem and then your devices will connect to your router.

How to get it online with a ps3? I hooked it up to the ps3 with the Ethernet cable. It says connection failed .but it wont go online. Any help would be dearly needed. Thanks


First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :-

When playing ps3 game live i get kicked off the games what is going on


Are you running the live game play through the internal WiFi card or a wired Ethernet cable? If you can try hooking up an Ethernet cable and it solves the problem, you are getting interference from something and you'll have to move the PS3 closer to your router or just try to keep it on the Ethernet cable for online play. That's what I use because it is much more reliable and much faster than WiFi.

If you are running with an Ethernet cable and you are still having problems, the problem may not be with your PS3 but with your router or internet connection. Try moving the cable to another outlet on the router. Check your network settings on the PS3 amd try to set up the network to automatically detect settings.

Depending on the game, you may be kicked off by other users in the game. I've had that happen a couple times because everyone's a critic.

I hope this helps. Good luck and have fun online! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

Hi there,

You will need a ethernet cable, this can be done aswell through wireless, all you have to do is install windows media player 11 or above, then search for media servers on your ps3 and the ps3 will find it, voila,,, any photos,videos,music etc..... can now be accessed through your ps3, if not wireless connect ethernet cable to your ps3 or modem/router for online gaming but not for accessing your pc files.
