How do I hook my ps3 to the internet using a eithernet cable.?


http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstat...
That website has a great guide on how to setup your ps3 for internet connection.
This is what you need to hook up to the net for your PS3
1.You need a MODEM which is the "box thing" that connects to your pc.
1. You need a ROUTER which connects to your MODEM and in to your PC. The router allows for both the PC and the PS3 to use the internet at teh same time. Unplug the wire that goes into your PC and plug into your ROUTER so that the modem is connected to the router not the PC
3. You need to connect your PS3 to the router with an ethernet cable and your PC to the router with an ethernet cable
4. Go to that web site and follow the instruction on how to set up and account on your PS3 and get going online and have fun!! Good luck!

How do i connect my ps3 to the internet if i dont have wifi?


Your PS3 supports both wired and wireless. Heres how I have mine set up, Ive been running wired since day 1. 1st- hook your ps3 up to your modem or router with an ethernet cable. {im assuming ps3 is plugged into the tv, if not hook it up}
2- go in to your network setting on ps3.. If you start at the far left go over click and all the way down. You will see network settings. click on it and go down to the 3rd option there.. Internet connection settings. You will get a pop up that says your ps3 will be disconnected from the internet if you proceed, just hit ok. It usually automatically detects if you have the ethernet cable plugged in but just in case it doesnt go ahead and select wired. after that, just select auto for everything else. You will go through about 5 questions and it will be ready to do an internet connection test. All should be well.
If that doesnt work, make sure all the cables are plugged in and try again.If you are able to connect to the internet after that but get booted off, go back into network settings again and disable the media server. Hope that helps.. Happy Gaming

Cant get wired internet on my ps3


A cable modem & a router are two different things. You can pick up a "Cisco 'EtherFast' cable/DSL" (wired or wireless) router at Wal Mart for $35. But you need both a modem & router to get your PS3 up & running on the web. Once you get on, you'll need to set up a "PlayStation" account. Unlike the Xbox 360 Live network, PlayStation is free of charge. It's a very user-friendly interface, so you shouldn't have any problems there. Cisco will give you live customer service to walk you through hooking up your router. Please let me know you make out. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck, bro.

Are you using a router? s133pyh34d is assuming you're even using a router. You can not hook up a PS3 directly to a modem like you can a computer. Wired or wireless, you need a router

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.

Ps3 wireless


It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
