Well... This is a question with a very broad base for answers.

You can either connect your unit to the internet by way of an ethernet cable connection or by wireless. (Which your model has as a built-in feature.)

You'll of course need a high-speed internet connection and a wireless router. All you should have to do is connect the ethernet cable from the unit to the router.

If you would like to connect by wireless, use the PS3 to locate wireless access points in your local area, find your router and connect to it. I recommend using wireless security of course...

Not sure how else to really answer your question. Let us know if you need more specific instructions here. Please be more specific if you need help with something in particular during the process.

I have an error showing up and I can not get to my playstation

  • If logging into the PlayStation Network or connecting online, reboot the system and try connecting again.
  • Try connecting at a later time as it may be temporary congestion with your Internet service.
  • If there is no maintenance, on the XMB go to (Network) > (Internet Browser) and attempt to access any website. If you are unable to access a website using the PlayStation 3 Internet Browser, there may be an issue with your Internet service. Please contact your Internet Service Provider for help with your Internet connection.

What is error code 80130182

I've had this problem before and this is how i got it working again, what I did to reconnect is:
unplug and /or turn off any internet routers that are connected to either playstation or your PC for at least 5 mins, and then you can go to your PS3 under "system" , "network settings" go through the steps to find your internet connection manually, scanning for wireless connection, putting in name and password for internet service provider. once you finished, the PS will run a test to make sure your connected and then you can just connect to the Playstation Network as usual. I hope this solves your problem!

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.
