I have a wireless router in my bedroom where the internet comes into my house. My sons got a PS3 and have hooked it up, it is now saying the ethernet cord in not connected. What is this and how do I fix...


Check that ethernet cord is plugged in correctly to router.Ethernet cord looks like a telephone cord.
must be in the lan port of router.

You need to have a ethernet cable going from the back of the ps3 to your router in 1 of the ports.

or ps3 needs a wireless adaptor to pick up the wirless signal from the router.

Tried to get internet


hi...please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
  • playing blue-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the blue ray movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your blue ray dvd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair ..

thank u
rate me!!.

Ps3 skips while playing online


Purely and Simply, you need faster internet! Gaming often takes a connection of 10MBPS or greater for the best results. Try not to use wireless for online gaming. Try getting an Ethernet cord and connecting that to your PS3, it's actually must faster.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

Ps3


if you want to play on the internet with people around the world, you have to have an ethernet cord hooked up to the ps3. do you have a router for your house?(an internet connection)if so, you have to plug one end of the ethernet cord into the router and one end into the ps3. heres a GREAT site for cheap ethernet cords if you sont want to get ripped off by radioshacks prices:

Won't read game while hooked up to the internet


Take out any USB sticks or Memory stick you have plugged into the machine. Are you trying to use a TIFF exploit? That would do it.
