Are you trying to connect via Wifi or via a LAN (a cord).

If Wifi, are you sure there is a network? Do you have the network key? A network key is basically a 10+ character gibberish password that you get when you set up a secure wireless network... It is easier to connect to a non-secure network, but no one recommends keeping a non-secure network... because its not secure ;)

If LAN, try plugging the cord into a computer, and seeing if the computer can connect to the LAN. If a computer can connect, I see no reason the PS3 wouldn't be able to. If the computer can't connect, verify the other end of the cord is plugged into your router/wall, and that it is securely seated. If a router, unplug the power for 10 seconds, then plug it back in and try again.

I cant get my playstation 3 to connect to the ps3 network


Firstly, make sure your PS3 is is connected to your network. Without this, you won't be able to get access to the PSN. Go into the settings table, and scroll to the bottom to set your internet connection up.
If you are connected to the internet, make sure you are entering the correct password and username, it'll tell you if you are typing something in wrong.
It depends on the error that you are getting, to what needs to be done in order to get access to PSN.

Cant get internet connestion


Are you hard wiring it? if so you may need to reboot your modem then start the ps3 back up. Don't unplug from the computer and connect it directly to your PS3 because the modem still has the computer's ip address and it won't recognize the PS3 until you reboot it. If it's a wireless connection, check to see that when you scan for wireless connection that the green wireless LED is blinking, meaning it's searching for a signal. If it's blinking, then try resetting the modem and the wireless router as well and give it another try. If the green light does not blink, then there might be a harware issue with your PS3. Good luck
