Depending on the router you should be able to manually configure it, most have a web based setup you can access through Internet Explorer. Or plug the computer into the modem, and just download the setup program from the manufacturers website and install it that way.

Ps3 wont connect internet


Are you trying to connect with a wire, or wireless? The very first thing I would try is to connect to your internet with a wire. If you can connect, then the problem with connecting wireless is the wireless router.

All of my computers connect to the internet but my ps3 wont


Let's try the simplest things first. Restart the PS3. Then try restarting your router (unplug/replug it in). Make sure all the cables are nice and snug where they should be in both your router and the PS3.

If going for a wired connection, confirm that the cable to and port/cable slot on your router are good (try another cable and cable slot). If going for a wireless connection, confirm that other devices can access your router wirelessly.

Still having trouble? Check your internet settings on the PS3. Navigate to XMB > Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings. Run through it, selecting Automatic or Auto-Detect whenever possible. If that didn't work try setting it up manually. Here's a guide explaining each option of the manual set up process.

Hope this helps!

Unable to get wireless access to internet on ps3, keep getting a connection error DNS 80710102 or 800100A, can you advise how to resolve?


Try to disable the security key of your wireless router in the meantime and try to connect your PS3 without the security turned on. If it connects, what you have to do next is to reset or generate a new security key on the wireless router and setup the PS3 - wireless network connections with the new security key.

PS3 and N band routers


Hey Swolestevo,

In order for your PS3 to connect to a wireless network, the router itself will need to be compliant with either the 802.11b or 802.11g legacy Wi-Fi standard. If you're not sure if a given 802.11n router is compatible with either of these previous standards, I'd strongly suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. Generally, you should be able to find a full detailed list of the wireless standards that any given router is compatible with by visiting the manufacturer's website.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Wireless router wont connect


Hey mentalmc,

I had this problem at least once a month. Try these things out.
1. Make sure any WEP codes are entered EXACTLY as it is for your router.
2. Set up your router so only your PC connected to it can change any settings.
3. Turn off your PC while trying to connect via PS3 WiFi. The good ole Win update likes to download without you knowing it sometimes.
4. If all else fails, call Sony cause you may have a bad WiFi antenna or motherboard.
