Not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.

I can connect to internet from cable modem but not thru Router Belkin Surf N300. I can get wifi thru router


I'm confused? If you connect a Ethernet cable direct fron the Belkin to the computer, will it connect? What does it say in Network and Sharing Center on computer, What is the computer and the OS? I think you have a Computer issue. Post Computer Make,Model, and the OS.

Pioneer vsx521 stopped recognising hdmi connection from computer


Press the Audio Parameter button (Looks like an x) then scroll up until you see 'HDMI AMP' and hit over to the left or right so it shows 'HDMI THRU' the HDMI will redo the handshake and you should have sound.

When streaming Netflix thru my PS3, the audio and video are extremely out of sync? And also, the video quality is very poor...worse than standard definition!


One of the main causes of such an out of sync video playback, with a service like Netflix, would be your internet connection. If there are multiple computers all on your home's router at the same time, the entire house will have a slower connection to the internet. This problem is the same weather your using wireless, wired, or a combination. Try using just the PS3, and maybe one other computer, online at the same time.

Im currently overseas does anyone know how to connect the ps3 thru the computer with paid internet service


Need to have 2 network cards in the computer to do this, one for the internet and another to connect the PS3. Once this is done. Open Control Panel and select Network connections. Right-Click your internet connection and select Properties. Open the advance tab and check the box that says (Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection). Click OK. The computer will promt and send a message saying some settings will not take effect till the connection is reset, click OK. Then reset the internet connection. After that start the PS3 and go through the setup for an internet connection.

I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.

Can't connect to internet


We can try to isolate whether it's a problem with IE by having you download and install Mozilla Firefox and seeing if it allows you to browse the web.

You may want to check your connection settings in Internet Explorer - Tools + Internet Options + Connections. If you had any dialup settings or anything in there previously you should disable them. The other thing you can try is running the network setup wizard and telling the machine that you connect directly thru a network hub.

I cant log in. PLEASE help me.


I guessing you live close to a neighbor that has an unsecured wireless network. It is possible that they changed their security settings to block out other IP addresses (meaning your PS3). The best solution would be to establish your own internet connection and/or wireless network thru a local broadband internet provider.
