You are probably behind a firewall. You will need to reconfigure your network settings and open certain ports. Here is a link to Sony, and they have provided most of the port numbers you will ever need.

You will have to open the following ports in your modem /router
Make sure the firewall is disabled in the Modem /Router
Make sure that UPnP is Enabled

My playstation 3 wont connect to the internet


Most of the time when I see this it means you haven't correctly forwarded the ports on your router to allow access through it's firewall. go here:
www.portforward.com

scroll down and find the manufacturer of your Router
then find your model #
when you click on the model # you will see a new page load with a list of programs, game systems, and other devices. Click on PS3 and it will show you step by step what ports to open to allow internet access
-pls rate "very high" if this helps and i'd love feedback- thanks

Can't Connectda


Hi,

Restore your router to factory settings, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses on the router.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks

My problem with internet


Hi there Case,

it seems like your PS3's Motherboard could be the problem with you not being able to connect, either their are faulty connections or damaged wires which connect the Ethernet port directly to the motherboard itself, if your PS3 is still within its warranty i wouldnt advise attempting a DIY remedy to the problem, instead i would suggest calling sony customer support and asking for advice to see if they can sort out a repair or replacement of your system

Hope this helps !?

Ps3 wired connection


Hi There.

If your PS3 is Networked upto Your PC to use the internet connection, You have to allow the PC to share its Internet connection with yout PC, Do this By going into Network settings, Checking the properties of your LAN card in your PC. and clicking on, "share my internet". This should alleviate that problem..

Or.

If your PS3's Wired connection isnt working. but your PC one is, Try moving your PS3 Lan cable into one of the other Free LAN Ports (if available) or Try Switching the PC cable over to the PS3's Port in the Router, and Visa-Versa !

Invite by friends


it could be your router... can you connect your ps3 directly to your internet connection??ie ) modem like cable modem or DSL.

If it works then your router is not allowing whats called uPNP enabled service... this service opens ports automatically when called upon by certain programs... ie) ps3 connecting to a game.

check that out and let me know

Internet connection


It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
