Trying to hook up internet to PS3 without nearby phone jack...

I have a PS3, but no home computer. (I use it so much at work, I only need the PS3) I just got a hi-speed internet package, (wired) but there is no phone line near my entertainment center/TV/PS3. There is a cable hook-up, though. Solutions?

You can buy longer Ethernet cables at places like radio shack or Best Buy. And just run it along the wall or under a rug of some sorts. Just shop around for the cheapest one. And measure the length you need.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dynex%26%23174;+-+25'+Cat+6+Network+Cable+-+Gray/5688892.p?id=1055389307257&skuId=5688892&st=Ethernet%20cord&cp=1&lp=2

Magic Jack Plus worked in USB and then Internet on computer stopped working


It's got the wrong gateway setting. Without a gateway (router) to the Internet it can only see local network stuff. I suspect the Magic Jack is still trying to be the gateway but it has no Internet. Stop Magic Jack doing this and it should work.

Relocated to new house - disconnected phones and have them recharging - forgot what I have to do to have them connect to get dial tone - recall it was something very simple. thanks


This is posted under a "cellular phones" heading, but I'm going to assume you have cordless phones that you're trying to hook up again.

Remember that the base unit needs to be plugged in to power and also to your telephone line. So be sure the base location is near an AC outlet and that there is a phone jack somewhere nearby. You may also want to verify that the phone jack you'll be using is actually working. It may not be connected, or may be wired to a second phone line. You never know when you move in. Plugging in a plain old corded phone will let you check for dialtone.

Plug in the base unit power, connect it to the phone jack and put the handset on the base and you should be back in business. If you have a phone system with multiple handsets, you'll need to place each one on the base to register it.

This should get your phones working if you have a regular landline coming in to your new home. If you use an Internet phone service like Vonage or you have service from a cable company, you may have to get someone to check the wiring if you don't have dialtome appearing at the jacks.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

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.

CAN'T GET FAX WORKING.


If it's answering on your main number, then you are not plugged into the fax jack. You should have a separate phone jack for fax. If you have internet phone there should be a second jack on the back of your phone box. You can test that you have a functioning second line by plugging the fax into it and using the fax unit to dial your home number.

Ps3 internet connection


you can hook up the ps3 directly to a router or a modem but there is no need to have it hooked up to an actual computer or laptop. you have to have an internet connection with a router/modem to at least HAVE the ABILITY to get online play.
