If you are using a router, the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS3 from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation 3 then move it close to the PS3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS3 to your modem, press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS3 on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually) If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go.

Where is the aoss button about on ps3 for wireless network i cant get wireless untill i press the aoss button


The PS3 does not have an AOSS button. AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) is used for wireless setup of devices for your network. Your router will have a button on it for this. If it does not then it more than likely does not have the ability to set devices up in this manner.
To use this set up for the PS3 go to Settings - Network Settings - Internet Connection Setting - (Method) Custom - (Select Connection Method) Wireless- (WLAN Setting) Auto - AOSS. At this point the PS3 will tell you to push the button on the router and that you have two minutes or else the attempt to connect will stop.

Cant connect to wireless network on my ps3


Hello,
First off you have a wireless router hooked up to your ISP correct.
anually set a static IP for your wireless connection (When going through the network setup in Network Settings --> Internet Connection Settings (wireless), choose Custom instead of Easy when the page asking for either appears).
Set the IP address to something outside your DHCP range. e.g. 192.168.0.5 (for dlink router) or 192.168.1.5 (Linksys router)Default gateway should be the IP of your router. For dlink, this should be 192.168.0.1 and Linksys should be 192.168.1.1DNS Server can be the same as your default gateway, mentioned above.
Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0.If you're using some sort of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc), set it in there as well when it asks to do so.
And that should get you going. I actually haven't done this on the ps3, but its my info from experience with regular pc to pc networking.
Also If you haven't tried this already, change the wireless channel from 6, to 1 or 11 in your router and wireless consoles.
If all else fails, try this http://www.clanbluntforce.com/forum/index.php?topic=864.0

Cant find out how to get my ps3 with internet


if you have wireless you can hook it up that way.
if you have wired or DSL network you can hook it up that way too.
in addition you need a playstation network user account.

to hook up your ps3 to the net go to settings, network connection and choose custom network connection then it will show you wireless or wired then choose whatever you have. then just go through and dont change any settings until it runs the connection test then it should work

REMEMBER TO GET PLAYSTATION NETWORK ACCOUNT IN THE PLAYSTATION STORE AFTER YOU SET IT UP!!!!!
