Have you tried connecting other devices the same way? Do they connect? What devices? What type of internet connection? If its PPPOe then you may need to set up user name and password.

80028ea6 - Connection error , Possible Proxy error power cord. Then shut off your modem/router, for about 5 minutes, then turn the modem back up first and let it sync, then turn the router back on(if using one) and let it sycn. Reconnect your power cable and flip the back swtich up again. Then make a new network connection.

It wont go into playstation store


Make sure your internet connection is good and you are able to sign into playstation network. Turn your playstation on and go directly to your network settings and click on Internet Connection Test. If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go.

There is no wifi showing up on my playstation 3


You have to turn the WIFI option on for the PS3 to recognize wifi connections.
  • Go to "Network Settings" under the "Settings" option in the Main Menu.
  • Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and select "Yes" when the system displays a new screen saying you will be disconnected from the Internet.

  • Choose "Easy" on the next screen.
  • Choose "Wireless" when it asks for what type of connection you would like to use.
  • Select "Scan" on the next screen.
  • Select your wifi internet connection.
  • Select your Security Settings and enter your password
  • .Test the connection by selecting "Test Connection".
  • If everything works out, your network information should show up.
Cheers!

PS3 WONT ALLOW INTERNET CONNECTION ALL OF A SUDDEN


Try this if you can get a ethernet cable to plug into your ps3 then you know that it is your wifi if this is the problem do what this guy said but also rest your modem plug the modem in first then the router and set up a new connection on the ps3. That will 90% be a way to fix the problem or MSG for more.

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
