Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Heeeellllllpppppp! I'm getting very frustrated. I have the 80 gb unit. I'm simply trying to play my PS3 online using a wireless router but it won't allow me to download the latest updates. It's saying, "an error occurred during the download operation." A connection to the server cannot be established (80710723)." The only thing is that my "setting list" is telling me everything is ready. For an Example it says, Internet connection-Enable Connection Method-Wirless SSID-belkin54g Security-none (maybe this is the problem,I'm saying this) Address settings-Automatically IP Adress-Automatically Subnet Mask-Automatically Default Router-Automatically Primary DNS-Automatically Secondary DNS-Automatically mtu-Automatically Proxy server-Do not use UPNP Test Connection obtain IP address -succeeded Internet connection succeeded

My ps3 takes 40 seconds to show friends on list then another 40 toopen text message very frustrating please help me


Unfortunately this has more to do with your internet connection then your PS3 hardware. There are two things you can try with very little investment in time and money. First, make sure your connection is good. If your using a wireless signal, be sure your PS3 is getting plenty of signal. If not, try moving it closer to your wireless router. If your using a wired connection, make sure all wires are plugged in correctly and securely, both into the PS3 and the router.

If your using a wireless connection, try switching to a wired connection. This can improve online features by a significant amount. A good Ethernet cord ( the type used by a PS3 to connect to a router) can be picked up at a good price at your local electronics store, or at a larger hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. Ask at the help desk and they can point you to the cords.

When onlinr playing a game it stalls during a game


this might just be that your using to many components online at the same time try shutting down anything else online or downloading of any sort and see if the issue continues, if your getting this wired and wireless it just sounds like you do not have the bandwidth to handle it all. If im wrong sorry. You could also try powering down router or even reseting it. and the modem maybe its just having issues with this unit. Sometimes they are finicky....

How do you set up playstation 3 to play playstation 2 games


One Surefire WayThe only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3 can play PS and PS2 games or it can’t, and there’s not much to do about it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won’t help you out much here.
However, if you do have the correct console model, then there isn’t much to know for learning how to play PS2 games on PS3. Simply insert the game CD or DVD (many original Playstation games are also supported thankfully), and the game will start up. Sometimes, it will tell you that you can’t play the game, but simply hook your PS3 up via wireless or ethernet connection and update the firmware (which also provides improved compatibility with newer versions of Blu-ray discs). Often, this will fix the problems, but not all PS and PS2 games are supported (although most are).
There you have it. Learning how to play PS2 games on PS3 is easy, but if you just randomly picked a Playstation 3 model out at your local retailer, you might have a model lacking in backwards compatibility. One reason they didn’t include such compatibility with all models is an issue of cost, as it saved Sony some money to not include such a feature on all of the models. When they first started selling PS3s for $400, they were losing several hundred dollars (although they are at least breaking even now). Unfortunately, both the new 80 Gb and 160 Gb PS3 models are lacking in such compatibility, so you’ll need to find older models to support your older games.

Please rate my solutions! =)

The connection to the playstation network fails


sounds like a problem with the wireless network card.

Go thru these instructions to get your ps3 to recognize your wireless router, if it doesn't work then you know that your wireless network card in the ps3 is bad:

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

No Wireless For 80 G


The 80 GB model does include wireless connection but there is no 80 GB version on sale in the UK (and the states as far as i know) so thats why it is not listed. there is also a new 40 GB version which will also have wifi. about the code input thing that seems very weird and i suggest using your controller to input the password.
