You can either hook up your PS3 through hard wire using an ethernet cable plugged into your PS3 and your modem or wireless since the PS3 has a built in wi - fi adapter for the wireless network in range.

Can't get online to play this new PS3. The console is hooked up to the TV & Belkin Wireless router. The internet, computer and phone line are in a different room and can't reach to hookup. AT&T is...


There should be no HDMI cable to router. In any situation.

Try the following:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)


Be sure to choose "Wireless" when configuring the settings if you are using wi fi for connectivity.

I cant get my internet to work I have a ps3 and at&t highspeed gateway modem by 2wire I tried every thing and I dont have a computer can u help


Most gaming consoles do not work with modems if they are directly connected with them, you'll have to get a router and plug your gaming console into that. However, the experience with PS3s and modems depends on the ISP. I recommend calling your Internet Service Provider and asking them if their modems allow consoles to be played while directly hookup up to them.

Ps3 hookup to panasonic plasma viera


Actually if you do have a ps2 you don`t really need a Dvd upconverter because Ps3 is a full Dvd player +blu Ray Hi Definition.I suggest to take the dvd out and just use the ps3 as a Dvd player
Good Luck

Hi GameGirl31,

In order for you to go on-line with the PS3, you will first need either broad band or DSL Internet connection. Once you have that, all you will need to buy then is a wireless router. You will need to hookup the wireless router to your broad band or DSL modem. Once you have done this, you have two option on how to get on-line. You can hard-wire your PS3 to the wireless modem or you can use the blue tooth wireless net-card that is already built into your PS3 to go on-line.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

How do I hookup ps3 using wireless laptop


I'm assuming here that you mean that you want to connect your ps3 to the internet through a windows laptop connected to the internet wirelessly, correct me if i'm wrong...

  1. connect an ethernet cable into your ps3 and the other end into your laptop
  2. Connect to the internet on your laptop
  3. go to control panel on the laptop
  4. go to network connections
  5. select "Local area connetion" and "wireless network connection"
  6. right click on one of them while they're selected
  7. click bridge connections
your ps3 should now act as if it was directly connected to the internet

Opening ports on 4100


Thanks for the information. I'd recommend obtaining a router, it would make your life easier because routers are made to do exactly what you're needing to do (split your internet connection among several devices (PS3, PC, etc.). I'm a fan of Linksys routers, I use them in every home deployment possible. You can find the Linksys WRT54G or some variant at any big box store (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.) or at online retailers (NewEgg.com, Buy.com, Amazon.com) for real cheap. All you'll need to do is hook up your router to your ISP'd modem, hookup your PC & PS3 to your router, enabled uPNP (universal Plug & Play) on the router and you're set.

You could use your PC as a router (assuming your PC has two network cards in it). You just turn on Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and specify which card is connected to the ISP's modem (internet) and which one is connected to the PS3 (internal network). I don't recommend this solution as it is a bit buggy and having to route all the data from PS3 through your PC degrades the online performance on both the PC & PS3.

I hope this info helps, let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
