    I have been using a wireless. Our wireless box is on our main floor and my PS3 is upstairs so it is quite a distance away, but the weird thing is it says the connection is like 97% and is always above like 88% or so.....

    Maybe for your first connection try using a wired connection at your wireless box. Use wire supplied, but you will also need a tv there as the wire is not that long. If that works then it's something to do with the signal strength. If it works, download all of your updates and set up ps network account, then try another go at a wireless connection but with the ps right next to wireless box. once you've established the connection, then try and move your ps3 back upstairs. And hopefully the connection will remain, hope this helps

    What type of connection are you using? wired or wireless? If its wireless i suggest moving the wireless box closer to the ps3, i had to do that to mine, it just means buying an extension cord for your wireless box. the minimum connection you want to be looking for is 85% anything under and it wont do it.

Ps3 bluetooth connection

I think you are mixing up two different technologies. You said you have recently bought a Wireless Router and when you try scanning for Bluetooth devices you can't find it?

First of all, Bluetooth isn't Wi-Fi. You should go to Network Settings under Settings in the XMB and choose for a Wireless Connection and then let it scan.

Be sure you don't have a 40 GB PlayStation 3 since they don't have Wi-Fi.

I hope this helps. Please rate.
