Setting up a Wireless Internet Connection on the PlayStation 3

I just got a Metal Gear Solid 4 80GB PS3 a few days ago and I'm having trouble setting up the wireless Internet. Then on the PS3 i go to settings-Internet connection settings-yes-easy-wireless-scan- and then i choose the one that says SSID:2WIRE285 Security:WPA-PSK(TKIP) Signal Strength:100% and then I enter the WPA Key and then for IP Address I select automatic and then for DHCP host name I selected do not set and then for DNS Server I put automatic and then I selected automatic for MTU and then for Proxy Server I Put do not use And for the UPnP I put disable(should I have it enabled?) then it goes to a connection test page when I am at the test connection page it says obtain IP Address failed. Is there specific settings I need to enter for it to work? And what do I need to do for it to work?

If you keep your connection enable, but reboot or unplug your wireless router and it should refresh and work. I have to do that everytime i go online.

you dont get those of they are codes set in place by the owner of the signal you trying to access and the one your displaying is a fairly strong one so if its not your signal you aint gonna be getting into it with your psp you need a valid signal with the proper pass codes to access it and then purchase your wares from the ps network

All of my computers connect to the internet but my ps3 wont


Let's try the simplest things first. Restart the PS3. Then try restarting your router (unplug/replug it in). Make sure all the cables are nice and snug where they should be in both your router and the PS3.

If going for a wired connection, confirm that the cable to and port/cable slot on your router are good (try another cable and cable slot). If going for a wireless connection, confirm that other devices can access your router wirelessly.

Still having trouble? Check your internet settings on the PS3. Navigate to XMB > Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings. Run through it, selecting Automatic or Auto-Detect whenever possible. If that didn't work try setting it up manually. Here's a guide explaining each option of the manual set up process.

Hope this helps!

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 :)

Can you access the internet with a computer still?

Try rebooting the PS3 and the router. Reboot the router first, wait a few minutes, then reboot the PS3.

Which firmware version are you running?

Playstation online problem


How are you hooked up to your Internet ? is it Via a WiFi Router ? if so, ensure that the router is compatible with the Playstation 3. Also, have you tried calling your internet service provider ? they are usually able to solve connection problems with regards to game consoles etc.

Hope this Helps !?

This same problem happened to me awhile ago. The way I fixed it was I went under settings to network settings. Then went down to media server connection and disabled that. Once I did that I had no trouble at all updating games. Hope this helped :)
