Question about Video Game Consoles
If this is an issue that you have run into with other devices linked to your wireless network as well, one of the easiest possible solutions is to simply reset your router and modem (or residential gateway). You can generally do this by powering them both down for 1-2 minutes before turning them back on. Keep in mind that not all devices will actually have a power switch, and there may only be a reset button for you to press.
If you are only having problems with the Playstation 3 connecting to the internet, there are a number of other issues that may be causing this problem. These may include your PS3 may be attempting to connect to a secured network without the proper password (WPA Key), your PS3’s DNS settings may need to be verified, or your PS3’s firmware may need updating.
If you are unsure how to update your networking settings, you may wish to contact your internet service provider (ISP) for more information, or you can always seek assistance through your local Geek Squad® precinct. Remember that Geek Squad® services are only obtainable for a fee, so I would suggest giving your ISP a call first to see if one of their technical support representatives is able to provide you with an over-the-phone walkthrough to avoid any unnecessary charges.
Hope this helps you out.
