I use to have the ps3 hooked and on a new service moved forgot everything and trying to connect to the wireless interent and it keeps popping up psn failed


Everytime you disconnect from a network you ll have to go into the network settings again to reconnect. Find your wireless connection on the list, select your security, enter password and then hit "test". If all credentials were correct, it will quickly breakdown the connection attempt for you, showing you where the connection succeeded and where it failed to better triangulate the issue. If all connections succeed during the test, simply go back to the main screen and sign on. Hope this helps.

Was the webkey for my ps3 and how much is a


There is no "webkey" for a Ps3, I have a slimline 250gb and there is no key that you need to know about. If anything you have a playstation network login with a password that you set yourself or when you set up a wireless connection you need your WPA or WPA2 password for the connection so that you can use your in home WiFi.

a decent router to buy are Linksys, Belkin, and Netgear. I have a Netgear or a Belkin and its just a average house wifi network router that cost me about $50 at Bestbuy.

If connect it just follow the directions and use the windows network wizard to setup a wifi network. just be sure to remember your password for your wifi!!

When its time to connect your Ps3 just go to settings>Network settings (very bottom) > then I think its Internet connection settings> Easy>Wired or Wireless> Scan> select the right one>name it or dont> put in the password> make sure everything is correct> test it> Then if your test succeeds you'll be ready to go!

Cant connect to psn. But i can to internet. :(


One reason this may be happening is having the media sharing option on. Some routers can't handle all the requests the ps3 sends while having this option on. You're using a wireless connection right?

The connection to the playstation network fails


sounds like a problem with the wireless network card.

Go thru these instructions to get your ps3 to recognize your wireless router, if it doesn't work then you know that your wireless network card in the ps3 is bad:

Cant get my ps3 to connect to internet through my wireless router


Assuming the media test works (So the cable/wireless connections are OK) then it's possible that you're out of available IP addresses in the router. It shouldn't be a problem (Most router configs allow for over 250 IP addresses), but it might only have limited leases.

Try switching everything off (Except for the router), restart the router and then try the PS3. That should rule out a problem with DHCP

Internet Connection


On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings".
then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes".
go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan".
If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point.
Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one).
select "automatic" for everything.
select "Test Connection".
the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded".
If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.
