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 hook up a router to my playstation 3 with my comcast connection? I want to run my pc and my playstation 3 and not have to unplug and plug the ethernet cable back and forth.


there should be some other ports on the router if not it is a modem and you will have to buy a router, just plug a different cable into other router port and the other end into ps3 and presto .If no router buy one and run the one that goes to pc to router internet port than you need 2 cables that that you plug into different ports then to pc and ps3 . you can call me for free advice if none of this makes sence,

Playstation 3 wireless internet


Here you have to connect to your wireless router not your computer. Make sure you know your SSID (router's wireless name) and password.

Can you hook up the ps 3 to the internet router to get online with out using a computer


do you have a wireless router?

depends on how your internet is set up

but if your internet is set up like this

internet plug on wall>>>wireless router>>>>main computer

then you can connect to the wireless router without having the computer to be on

if you can use the wireless internet using a laptop then i dont see why it wount work for the ps3

if you dont have a wirekless router and your internet router has several eithernet ports then you can run a either net cable from the router to the ps3

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.

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.
