Second - are you sure that your connection is functional? (Do you have a computer - phone - or some other odd thing that is functional on this internet system)
Third are you following the directions in the PS3 manual for your type of connection? I don't have the link handy - or the steps memorized - but you do need to go into wireless settings and find your network - enter the (correct) password - then it will work fine.
MOST LIKELY you have a problem with the password.
A Wrong password will show you as 'connected' - but it will timeout.
A - verify your password is correct B - disable your password and leave your network open to all with no pass. (not recommended unless you live in the middle of no where)
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You do not need to buy a new router, you just need to find out what the IP address is for the one you have.
then you have to look at your users manual under setup the IP address, and set it up...
An IP address has 000.000.000.000 each of the three numbers between the dots can be from 0-255.
It looks for an IP address for a certain period of time, when it cannot find the device's IP address that you have it hooked up to, it times out.
So, what ever device you have it hooked up to, you really need to know it's IP address.
to find out you need to call the manufacturer of the device and ask them what is the default IP address on the device you purchased. Or if you are hooked up to a cable modem the IP address should be on the label under the cable modem. Or you can call for a service call from the cable company for help.
When you put the IP address in you also have to add your DNS settings.
easiest way to find your DNS server address is to use an XP based
machine and type "ipconfig /all" it will list all of the properties of
your computers network card. thake those DNS address' and plug them
into your PS3.
Restore PS3 to factory settings and change your network settings:
Best Results: Reset your router, 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.
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.
You need to connect a router to the cable modem. The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address. By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet. It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet. You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.
If you have your internet to your computer and the PS3 you need a router to provide an IP for both. Otherwise your ISP will only provide an IP for what ever was hooked up first most of the time. If this is the case try only the PS3 and do the auto setup. Linksys is a simple router with great support. If there is already a router hooked up please clarify.
Easy Pie! This is a cinch anda guarantee work through. It involves putting your PS3 into a DMZ (demilitarized zone) which simply means opening all of the ports on it.
If you have the following problems, this is likely to fix it.
Not being able to join rooms
Not being able to speak over your headset
Not being able to hear other people over their headset
Not being able to join private games
Any problems to do with connectivity to the PSN, especially if your computer will connect to the internet, but your PS3 won't.
Part 1-(On PS3)
Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal IP address. Normally whenever a device connects to your router it will be assigned a different internal IP address. These are normally 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and so on. Assigning a static one will ensure that your PS3 will get the same one every time it connects.
Go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 XMB. Choose whether you are using wireless or wired.
Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected.
This will display a page where customizable IP Addresses are available to be entered.
IP Address- This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Use 192.168.1.80, simply because it is unlikely that 80 other devices will be connected at the same time.
Subnet Mask - always set to 255.255.255.0
Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router.
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to
cmd [Hit Enter]
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway".
Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
Proxy � When you get to the proxy screen, select "Do not use Proxy"
MTU � Automatic
UPnP � Enabled
Part 2-(On PC)
In your Internet Browser, type the address of your default gateway, this will take you to your Router Configuration Page. Look for any mention of DMZ
When you have found this, it will ask you for the Static IP of the DMZ host. This is simply the Internal IP that you assigned your PS3. We used 192.168.1.80.
Finally, turn off your Router, PC and PS3 for a few minutes to ensure that the new settings are loaded. Then you're ready to go!
well, if you know how to setup the ip addresses manually both on your modem / router and on the ps3 i recommend you do that... but bear in mind that your dhcp server (on your modem / router) should prohibit automatic assignment of that same ip address with your ps3... for that you have to specify a range of automatically assignable ip addresses apart from your ps3...
if you have the dmz (demilitarized zone) option on your modem / router, set it up for the ip address of your ps3, which you've setup manually...
router ip: 192.168.2.1
ps3 ip: 192.168.2.10
ip address pool: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.250 (this shpould be manually setup not to interfere with the fixed ip address of the ps3)
dmz host: 192.168.2.10 (ip address of the ps3, which enables "opens" all of the ports for this ip address)
apart from that if you use any proxy servers to connect to the net, you have to specify these in ps3 settings as well...
there are a lot of threads on various forums on how to tweak your network connection to optimize for ps3...
