If you are using a router, from your router configuration, forward both TCP and UDP ports 4658 and 4659 to your PS3's internal IP address. That should do the trick.

Getting error code 8071053d tried rebootin ps3 and internet not working still wont let me play online


The error code indicates that the PS3 is unable to contact the Playstation Network Servers. This may be caused by the PSN (Playstation Network) being under excessive load (often a result of new, significant DLC being released) or a problem with your router or ISP (Internet Service Provider).

  • On your Playstation 3, go to the Settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select Network Settings, then select Internet Connection Test. If you do not see success for Obtaining IP Address and Internet Connection, then there is a problem with the networking between your PS3 and the internet.
If you both of these connections prove successful, but you are still not able to sign in to the PSN, try:
  • Contact your ISP and see if they have some sort of outage in your area or are somehow hindering your connection to the Playstation Network.

Trying to connect my ps3 to my wireless router. Error code after automatic access connection says no connection.


PS3 is not finding your router.
Make sure you choose wireless network under network settings and choose scan for wireless network.
Make sure SSID on router is broadcasting and not hidden.
Make sure router is broadcasting in G or MIXED mode.
Try removing wireless security on the router (open mode) and testing to see if connection can be made.
If connection can be made without security then try with security on.
Place ps3 closer to the router or connect with ethernet cable to verify connectivity.
Verifiy router is working by connecting a laptop or other device to the internet/router.

Motorola Surfboard SBG900 will not connect to Playstation Network


You need to give the PS3 its own IPAddress outside of the firewall. You need to configure the router and the PS3.

SBG900 vs. Playstation 3


You need to create a gaming gateway in the router and assign that gaming IPAddress in the playstation manually in the network setup. All the info you need is in the Connection and Status List. This should be checked while logged onto the internet.

Can't connect to the internet wirelessly


Well, to avoid confusion, I'd start by doing a factory reset. Insert the straightened end of a paperclip into the reset hole and power up the device to do this. From there, the device should begin broadcasting the default wireless network with the name (SSID) of "Motorola." The DHCP server should also be enabled and if your computer is configured to receive an automatically assigned IP address your wireless network interface should pick up an IP. The security for the "Motorola" network is disabled by default.

Basic troubleshooting from there would be to try to see if you can connect your wireless computer to another wireless network that is know to be working well. Either buy and return another wireless access point or router from a retailer or head to a Starbucks or other establishment that offers free wireless. If the wireless computer is hooking up nicely with the secondary wireless network, you can refocus on the SBG900 as the likely source of the problem.

If after attempting the aforementioned procedures you find that the wireless computer continues to fail to connect to the SBG900 you might have to consider that you have a faulty device. At that point I would consider consulting the manufacturer's documentation.
