Hi,

How is the PS3 connected to Sky broadband, is it through a laptop or straight through to the Sky router.

If its through the Sky router you can set up the router to sit the PS3 up outside of the firewall using the built in feature on the router called DMZ, all you need to do is go into the router setting using a PC or laptop and find the feature DMZ and enter the ip address of the PS3 and apply this.

The only other alternative is to setup port forwarding using the built in firewall on Sky router, you manually enter the port number for the Playstation network servers and the ip address for the PS3.
The port numbers are as follows:
TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658

Hope this helps...!

Cheers

Hi,

The Playstation network is down for maintenance at the moment so no-one can sign in or play games online. You will have to wait until the maintenance is complete before you can sign in. There is no word yet on how long this will take so please be patient will Sony works on the problem.
Don't worry as this has nothing to do with the consoles themselves.

How do i get my playstation 3 online soy son can playgames with his friends we have sky wireless broadbad


You'll have to use the PS3's built-in wireless card to connect to your wireless broadband connection, and then set up a Playstation Network account. This should be automatically configured by the PS3, unless your service provider has a set of specific settings that you have to provide the PS3.

When trying to go online with mx vs. atv untamed, it says the latest software has been found and click ok to download. Once we click ok, it downloads about 4-10% and then an error comes up!!


Is it your internet wireless router? do you have a strong signal? If you are connected to someone else wifi that you are picking up it is probably a weak connection. I can pick up my neibhors wireless signal and connect to it for play station shop, and the internet, but when i update the signal is too weak to do it.
