Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 and other computers in a network

Ever since the ps3 was hooked up, it will either disconnect the other computers from the wireless net, or grab all the broadband so that the other computers lag and slow down to almost a standstill. The disturbing thing is that its not necessary for someone to be playing on the ps3 for this to happen. We are using a gaming wireless router too. HELP. It sucks to be in the middle of a music download or something, then get disconnected by the ps3.

    do you have folding @ home installed? If so - turn it off



    Also, verify that your computers are not trying to stream data \ synchronizing with the ps3 and windows media player.



    (start > run > wmplayer [press enter])

    click the down arrow by My Library, go to media sharing

    disable sharing to your PS3

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

I have a PS3 in one room and my computer and internet in another. I have bought a wireless router but it is hooked up in the room with the computer. I don't want to have to run a cable to the other end of...


Check your wireless network name in your computer if it is wireless enabled.
Then go to your PS3. Go into the network settings and check if the wireless connection is detected.
When you check the network settings, make sure that ip and dns settings are set to automatic.
After that you would need to open some ports on the comp for your PS3 so that you can play online.
Also let us know the make and model no of your router so that we could tell how to open the ports on the router GUI.
Very first thing your PS3 should detect the wireless connection on it.

Do I need a 2nd modem to hook my ps3 up to the internet? My ps3 is no where near my computer...how can I get it hooked up to the internet?


I would use a wireless router. Then you can use ps3 or laptop in the house. Or run ethernet from main router/modem to the ps3. You can buy the ethernet cables at amazon.com and newegg.com and they can go a few hundred feet.

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!!!!!

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.

No internet ?


When you connect your ps3 with a ethernet cord you need to restart your ps3 when its connected. If its wireless you may need to check your router settings.

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
