PC Selected test failed

WHen I go to test media connection every test is confirmed except the PC selected test. It says I have to leave the screen up while I go to it and install the software. Well my ethernet is plugged into my modem so when I pull the ethernet cord out to put in my internet cord the screen on my Xbox goes away. So I cannot go to the website and have the screen up. Please help what should I do?

How do I conect to the internet to play games


Below are instructions for connecting the PS3 to a wireless network (Wi-Fi) using the [Easy] setting. For other network connection options, see How to connect the PS3 to the Internet.

Text walkthrough

Power-cycle ALL network equipment.

Turn off (unplug) all of your network equipment, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. See How to power cycle PlayStation 3 network devices for more details.


Make sure that all settings for the access point have been completed.

Check that there is an access point connected to a network with Internet service near the PlayStation 3. Settings for the access point are typically set using a PC. For details, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point.


Confirm that an Ethernet cable is not connect to the PlayStation 3. If the Ethernet cable is plugged in, the PlayStation 3 will automatically attempt to connect via the wired connection.


On the XMB home menu, go to (Settings) > (Network Settings) and press the button.


Then go to (Internet Connection) and select [Enabled].


Then scroll down to (Internet Connection Settings) and press the button.


Select [Yes] when a confirmation screen is displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet.


Select [Easy] and press the button.


When prompted for which type of connection method, select [Wireless] and press the button.


Under WLAN Settings, select [Scan] and press the button.

If you own a wireless access point that supports AOSS (AirStation One-Touch Secure System), then you must select [Automatic]. These wireless access points are commonly made by Buffalo, Inc. AOSS will automatically configure the necessary settings. Follow the on screen prompts to complete the setup.


You will see a list of access points within range of the PlayStation 3. From the list, pick your SSID and press the button.

If you do not know which SSID you should use or if an SSID is not displayed, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.


On the next screen, confirm the SSID then press the right direction button to continue. If you press the button, you will edit the SSID.


Select the security setting that you want to use and press the button.


The types of security settings vary depending on the access point. Contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for information on which setting to select.


If you selected a Security Setting, enter your security key.

Press the [Start] button to exit the onscreen keyboard.

Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.


The encryption key is displayed as a series of eight [*] no matter how long the key may be. If you do not know the encryption key, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.


Once you have entered all the information, a list of settings will be displayed.

Press the button to save these settings.


Depending on the network environment, additional settings for PPPoE, proxy server, or IP address may be required. For details on these settings, refer to the information from your Internet service provider or the instructions supplied with the network device.


Press the button to test the connection.


When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed").

If you have successfully connected to your network, congratulations, you have completed the network setup process

How to connect my psp to the internet


You need to get to the main menu from wherever you are on your PSP. You can do that by pressing the Home button, a tiny button just to the lower left of the screen. Now you'll want to move left (pressing the "<" button) until you get to Settings, then down (pressing the "V" button) until you get to Network Settings:


Now you'll have two choices: "Ad Hoc" is when you want to connection two PSPs together with any sort of Internet wifi base station / access point involved, and "Infrastructure Mode" is when you connect to your local wifi device. The infrastructure mode is what you want.


You'll probably only have the one choice of New Connection, but if you don't, choose it anyway:


First option is to specify a mnemonic connection name. The default here is "Connection 2" but yours might be "Connection 1", or similar. I recommend you actually enter a different name so you'll be able to remember what location works where.


To enter a new connection name, press the "X" button and you'll get to the "keyboard" screen:


When you're done struggling to enter your selected name :-) move to the green "Enter" box and press the "X" button. Now you'll be ready for the big important step: a Network Scan:


If everything's working well with your device and you've turned on the WLAN switch (How to turn on the PSP WLAN Switch) you'll see the following status message:


Hopefully, you'll see at least one network listed, if not more. If you don't see any networks, then you're out of luck. If the only networks you see have some sort of security setting, either WPA or WEP, then you must know the security password to access that network.
Once you're ready, the next step you'll want to take is to select an access point:


In this case I'm going to select Steve Hardesty since it's the strongest network with the Security setting of "None":


Now you'll have a chance to confirm your security setting from the different choices. Notice that the default is just about always the correct choice, which you can select by pushing the ">" button again and again:


Now you can also step right past the Address Settings:


You'll get a confirmation screen that shows all the settings you've specified:


Press the ">" button again, and you'll be able to save your settings


That's what you'll want to do: press "X".
Now, the most important step in the process - to Test Connection.



You'll most definitely want to do this! Press "X" to start the test...


If your test succesfully passed then you are online. If you failed start from step one.

Please rate my answer. I hope this helps you.

PC Selected - Failed


wmp11 streaming works upon universal plug and play on your router to direct streaming. I have had this problem too. Maybe people do. I found that upnp on my router was always the problem. Make sure it's enabled, and if you have not restarted your router do that. and after you enable upnp, its a good idea to restart it also. I'd give it a 75% chance its a universal pnp problem. Yet if your port forwarding, you might need to disable it, i dont know, i always just used upnp for simplicity. Finally, double check you have a static ip for your port forwards if you continue on that route.
