Just got wireless internet... I need the steps needed to connect it to my ps3


1. First off, make sure your wireless internet connection is active and at full strength.

2. Next, from the main menu on the PS3, navigate to "Settings" then, "Network Settings".

3. Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and select "Yes" when the system displays a new screen saying you will be disconnected from the Internet.

4. On the next screen that asks what type of installation you want to use. Select "Easy"

5. When it asks what type of connection you have, select "wireless".

6. Select "Scan" on the next screen.The system will search for all available Internet connections in the area.

7. Select your home Internet connection when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options. Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings.

8.Test the connection by selecting the "Test Connection" option. If the connection has been made, your network information will appear on the screen.

That should be it!

Trying to hook up wireless internet.Have tried with or wireless netgear support and could not help us.


To set up wireless internet, you must navigate to the settings tab, then go down to the bottom of the settings list, and click on "Network Settings". After that, another menu should show up, click on "Internet Connection Settings". You should get some sort of prompt, hit "ok" or "Yes".

It will then ask you for a "setting method", this will determine how many options you can change. Press "Easy" (Unless you need to give the Ps3 advanced information, but in most cases Easy is sufficient). Select wireless. Then, select "Scan". This will scan for all available wireless networks. Once you find your network, go to it with the D-Pad, and press X. "SSID" should show up on the screen, simply press the right arrow on the D-pad. It may ask you for a security setting, chose the password encryption that is set on your router (WEP, WPA,none,etc). Then enter your password on the next screen.

After that, you can skip the next few screens by pressing the right arrow on the D-Pad until you get to the last setup screen, a "Testing" screen. Press X at that screen, and it will test your network, and hopefully connect you to the internet.

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!

Cant get online


Before you can go online on the PS3, there is need for you to have either a wireless lan network or a wired network with an ethernet cable.
If you are using a wireless network, here is how you go about it
  1. Make sure your wireless Internet connection is active and at full strength. Unplug the PS3's Ethernet cable if it is plugged into the system.
  2. Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and select "Network Settings" under the "Settings" option in the main menu.
  3. Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and select "Yes" when the system displays a new screen saying you will be disconnected from the Internet.
  4. Select "Easy" on the next screen that asks what type of installation you want to use.
  5. Select "Wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.
  6. Select "Scan" on the next screen.The system will search for all available Internet connections in the area.
  7. Select your home Internet connection when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options. Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings.
  8. Test the connection by selecting the "Test Connection" option. If the connection has been made, your network information will appear on the screen.
If you are using a wired connection. just go over the same steps but select the wired connection instead of the wireless connection.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information.

You have not specified what kind of connection are you going to use to get online on your PS3, i am listing steps below first for a wireless connection in case you have a internet connection with a wireless router or modem.

Make sure that your wireless Internet is turned on and working properly,Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and follow these steps below

1) Access the "Network Settings" screen under the "Settings" screen in the main menu.

2) Select the "Internet Connection" tab and select "yes" when the system displays a new screen.

3) Select "easy" on the new screen that pops up asking what type of installation you want to use.

Ps3 help


OK, so i just went through this whole deal and its actually not too hard, and i gaurentee you will never have to do it again...
1) hook your ps3 as a wired connection to your router, you may need to go buy a really long cable to do this if you cant move your router in distance.
2) connect it automatically through the setup and it should work fine and connect, if not then i think your fucked.
3) go to network setting > setting and connection status list, write down all the info you can which is shows.
4) unplug the LAN cable, and go back to wireless setup.
5) do a manual setup for IP settings, and type in all the info you have, but DONT type in a WEP or WPA... EVEN IF YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ONE (mine has one but i didnt need it, but if it doesnt work the first time then hell try your passkey)
6) click enter and test connection and it should work!!
hope this helps cuz i see alot of people asking the same question and i had to spend 3 hours figuring it out for myself.
