If your controller WAS working then you have damaged it and must replace it (if you have a warranty) If it wasnt working when you bought it you should return this product and tell them its "Faulty equipment"

Hope this helps

Ps3 wont connect internet


Are you trying to connect with a wire, or wireless? The very first thing I would try is to connect to your internet with a wire. If you can connect, then the problem with connecting wireless is the wireless router.

I have a madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

My linksys WRT54GP2 wont connect to my ps3 ive done everything write it keeps comming up to check my wireless settings what do i do


Have you tried connecting it through a wired connection? Although PS3 is wireless, it is generally a more stable connection when connected through a wired connection rather than wirelessly.

3. Restart Console

How do i connect it with my ps3


You have to have a wire to connect it to your Ps3. Once you have connected it one time with a wire you can connect wireless after that. If you do not have a wire visit your local electronic store and ask them for a wire for a PS3 controller. It should not be expensive! If you have any further questions or difficulties contact me back so that i can help you in resolving these issues. Thank You

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work


if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

Turn your ps3 on and plug in your controller with the usb cable provided with the ps3 and then press the ps button while it is plugged in and it will connect. Then unplug the controller and it should wirelessly connect.

My ps3 controller wont connect with my ps3


Brian,

If after connecting to the USB it still won't work wireless, the best thing to do is this:

1 - Connect the controller to the PS3, via USB

2 - Click the PS Button to turn on the system

3 - On the XMB screen, click the PS Button again. You'll get the options, to "Turn off the controller". Do that and then turn it on again. It will reconnect with your PS3.

Regards,

Want to connect non wireless remote controls to console


No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped
