All of the ps3 models support wired and wireless internet. All you need is high speed internet service, and a router (wireless router if you want wireless internet o.~) you plug the router into your high speed modem via ethernet cable. then you plug your computer and ps3 into the router with ethernet cables. your good to go! if you want wireless for your ps3 you need to use the wireless setup on the ps3. your done :)

Hope this helps.

HOW DO I PLAY ONLINE USING NO WIRELESS ROUTER OR AN ETHERNET CABLE ONLY A DESKTOP, BROADBAND MODEM, AND MY PS3?


You can't split a single connection without some kind of router. If you are trying to get away from buying a router you could just unplug the cable going to the PC and plug it PS3 and then back when your done, but that gets real old real quick. I used to do that.

HOW DO YOU HOOK UP A PLAYSTATION 3 TO THE INTERNET


It can be done via a wired and a wireless connection. For the wired connection, you just need to hook the ethernet cable at the ethernet port on your PS3. For the wireless connection, you just need to set it up under the Network Connections on your System Settings for the PS3.

Ps3 wont let me choose wireless as an option to go online only ethernet cable


Dis-connect the ethernet cable from the back of the PS3 if there is one connected or go to custom instead of easy and you'll get to choose between wireless or wired. In custom just go through everything clicking do not use or automatic after you have entered your password and everything.

Good luck.

PS3 and Internet connection using Ethernet - from a mac


Where did you obtain the IP address?


If you went into System Preferences and saw the PS3 there and copied the assigned IP address, then it should work.

Hi there,

You will need a ethernet cable, this can be done aswell through wireless, all you have to do is install windows media player 11 or above, then search for media servers on your ps3 and the ps3 will find it, voila,,, any photos,videos,music etc..... can now be accessed through your ps3, if not wireless connect ethernet cable to your ps3 or modem/router for online gaming but not for accessing your pc files.

Using an ethernet cable, bring the cable into the back ethernet port on the back of the ps3. Go into your connection setting and click set up, and then select wired connection. From there follow the quick online instructions. Test by trying to get onto the playstation store if it works it was successful. The same steps go for wireless. Though I would go for a wired setup.

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
