You'll need a CAT-5 (or CAT-6) ethernet wire plugged into the ethernet port on the back of your PS3 with the other end plugged into one of the ethernet ports on your router (assuming your router has multiple ethernet ports). These ports will usually be labeled 1,2,3.. etc. Do not connect to the LAN or WAN ports on the router. If your router only has one port, you'll need to get an inexpensive ethernet switch to connect to the LAN port of the router and all of your computers, PS3 and other ethernet peripherals to the switch.

I can only get it to work with a wire,the box says its wireless.dlink233OL


If you are talking about the wire that comes from your modem to your dlink2330L, yes you have to have it hooked up via wire. Then your wireless "wifi" capable devices connect the the internet wirelessly through the modem. If you are talking about having to hook up a wire from the router to a computer to get the computer to get on the internet, that computer may not have a "wifi" device built into it. If the later is the case you can buy small "wifi" devices (like a "Bear Extender) that plug into your usb port to make them wireless.

Hello
Try this

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.

Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.

So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.

Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.

I have no computer or cable and need to set up internet on my PS3


??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.

Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.

For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

I have a cable modem. from the cable modem I go to a 5 port hub


That is because most cabel internet providers only gives you one public IP. Please go to a Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or Targer, and ask for a LinkSys Router. The router will do NAT (Network Address Translation) that will allow more than one PC share the single public IP. This will solve your problem and will cost an estimated $30.00. The router is simple to hook up, just plug the cabel from your modem into the Internet/WAN port on the router. And the two computers into any of the other ports. Be sure to unplug both cable modem and router then plug up the cable modem first, once the ready light is on, plug up the router.

No internet through ports


Try hooking up the PC through the router, then unplugging the modem and plug it back in. Once that is up, do the same to the router and try it again.

Oftentimes if you're limited to one IP address, it will be assigned to your PC, and your router will be unable to get one. Resetting the modem frees the IP address and allows the router to get it.
