Mine had that problem too. It is probably the area where your internet is. U have bad service. Let it sit for a few days, turn it on and mess around with the cable plugged into the wall. Mine worked after a couple days after the **** WAS plugged in saying "no ethernet is plugged in" No worries

I am having problems connecting my PS3 to the internet wirelessly. If I use an ethernet cable it works without a problem. When I try to enter the same details (IP address, Primary DNS, Secondary DNS, etc.)...


HI, backup your games. If you're a playstation plus member you can back them up online. Otherwise, insert a usb drive, go across to "game" then up or down to "Saved data utility (ps3)". Then select the save you want to backup by pressing triangle. Select copy, choose your usb drive (or usb key) as the destination.
After you have backed up all the saves you want, go across to settings, then to system settings. then select "Restore default settings." Let it have its process, and turn off the PS3 then back on again.
You may need to set up your network settings again.
If it still doesn't work, follow steps above but select "Restore PS3 system" instead. This is when having the backed up game saves is needed as you will have to copy them back from the usb drive (or from online via playstaiton plus) onto your restored ps3.

Also, try using Open DNS as your DNS settings. It might work. Or let the ps3 find them automatically.

Go into the network settings and change the DNS server addresses to OpenDNS' server addresses 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

Cant get online with ps3 since ive purchased a new NETGEAR dg834


Hi, please perform the steps below to configure settings on the router:

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.
Please scan for the wireless network on the PS3 and connect to the wireless network.


Let me know if you need any fruther help.

I cant play games online


You do not need a DMZ for ps3. jsut setup a SSID if wireless. Encrypt it (for your own saftly) and PS3 has wireless capablity. Just join the network with the SSID and WEP key and the PS3 will get an IP address. Also no port mapping is needed. Leave all port to auto open due to DHCP is going to get your PS3 a new ip every time you turn it on.

Conneting ps3 online through laptop using o2 broadband


Are you connecting wirelessly or with a cord? if wireless, you need to make sure that you are selecting the same security setting as the connection that you pick in 'network settings'. If the option is 'none', then you need not worry about a password. however if it has a password, then you need to make sure that you type that password in (case sensitive). I had the same problem and this worked for me. hope this helps...please rate if it does....thanks. also, you shouldn't have to do anything with your laptop at all. try to use a direct line from your modem if you are using an ethernet cord.

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.

PS3 online with a router


Greetings ray001,

Yes, you will be able to connect to your PS3 using a wireless router. The wireless router will not see it as a PS3, but another computer with wifi that wants to connect, it will assign an ip address and you will be set to go.

Thank you,

Agent Dort,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
