you can set your playstation 3 online by two ways, 1- by a wired connection, and 2- Wireless,

1-Wired Connection: Plug an ethernet cable from your highspeed modem to the back ethernet input on your ps3 system, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wired Connection. and follow steps
2- Wireless Connection: You must have a Router connecting ethernet cable from your intenet modem to the router, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wireless Connection and follow steps,

hope this helped you on setting up your ps3 connection :)

Hello ps3. connection test fails all the time. i cant play online. help


if your wlan light isnt blinking, that might be your ethernet connection. try switching your ethernet connection from your computer to your ps3 ( if you have a wireless router ) if not keep it there but change your phone wire connections.

My computers connected to the internet kid wants ps3 connected aswell, how & what equipment if any? ty


You'll need to unhook your Ethernet cable from the back of your computer and connect it to the PS3.Or to still be able to use your computer while he's online with the PS3 (good luck with that one) you will need to get a router and another Ethernet cord.It will split the signal between the two and allow them to be used at the same time.Pages 24 thru 30 (PS3 manual)explain how to do the connections with the Ethernet cord or wirelessly if you have wifi.Good luck!

Ps3 wont let me choose wireless as an option to go online only ethernet cable


Dis-connect the ethernet cable from the back of the PS3 if there is one connected or go to custom instead of easy and you'll get to choose between wireless or wired. In custom just go through everything clicking do not use or automatic after you have entered your password and everything.

Good luck.

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


Hi there,

You will need a ethernet cable, this can be done aswell through wireless, all you have to do is install windows media player 11 or above, then search for media servers on your ps3 and the ps3 will find it, voila,,, any photos,videos,music etc..... can now be accessed through your ps3, if not wireless connect ethernet cable to your ps3 or modem/router for online gaming but not for accessing your pc files.

Using an ethernet cable, bring the cable into the back ethernet port on the back of the ps3. Go into your connection setting and click set up, and then select wired connection. From there follow the quick online instructions. Test by trying to get onto the playstation store if it works it was successful. The same steps go for wireless. Though I would go for a wired setup.

Ps3 online


ps3 has a built in wireless adapter.rather than having wires all over, get a wireless router.connect the router to your modem with an ethernet.once you have the wireless router up and running,you will have whats called an "access point" for any devices to connect to wirelessly (within a reasonable distance),such as the ps3.
