I have an error showing up and I can not get to my playstation

  • If logging into the PlayStation Network or connecting online, reboot the system and try connecting again.
  • Try connecting at a later time as it may be temporary congestion with your Internet service.
  • If there is no maintenance, on the XMB go to (Network) > (Internet Browser) and attempt to access any website. If you are unable to access a website using the PlayStation 3 Internet Browser, there may be an issue with your Internet service. Please contact your Internet Service Provider for help with your Internet connection.

Internet not working , can't connect to the internet

Is your internet not working? Unable to connect to any websites? Read more below to help resolve these issues.

First, you need to make sure your home network is configured and up and running. You can click here to read my article on how to configure a home network.

One of the first troubleshooting steps I recommend is to check the network cables in the network. Make sure all cables are firmly seated in the connection port. Also, if you have cable splitters I recommend you unplug the coaxial cables and plug them back in. Simply resetting cables can resolve connectivity issues. Replacing cable splitters can also help as well. They are fairly cheap to purchase and your Internet Provider may be able to send you out some for free. Continue on with the steps below if this does not help,

1)First, you can test if you are able to send data past your local gateway. Your gateway is your router. It is the gateway to the outside world. If your internet is working properly, you should be able to communicate past this.

In Windows you can use the ping command to test,
Click Start > Run and in the run box type "Command" or "cmd". A black DOS window should open. In the DOS window, type
ping or any website you have in mind. Try multiple ones.
Below is example of a working internet connection,

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of d
Reply from bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=52
Reply from bytes=32 time=46ms TTL=52
Reply from bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=52
Reply from bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=52

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 45ms, Maximum = 46ms, Average = 45ms

As you can see, I am able to communicate with If you ARE able to communicate past your gateway, but still unable to visit websites then continue below. If you are NOT able to communicate past the gateway, SKIP to step 5

2) You may have an issue with your Internet Browser. Try using a different internet browser to see if you can view websites. If you are able to with different browser, then you narrowed the problem down to that browser. Some examples of browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox, Safari and Google Chrome.

3) If you are unable to get any Internet Browsers to work, then there may be a different problem. You could have a Firewall on your computer, or a anti virus program that is causing problems. The best way to test this out is to disable any anti-virus programs or firewalls you have.

4)Simply, the website you are trying to go to is down due to technical reasons you can't control. Make sure this is not the case by visiting other websites.

5) Make sure your computer is setup to obtain an IP address automatically and to obtain DNS information automatically. Why? When you purchase internet service from a Internet Service Provider, they typically assign you DCHP addresses and these can change all the time. So, if you input an IP address manually, then it may work for a while and stop working.

-To make sure your computer is configured to obtain this information automatically, in windows, go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections. Right click on Wireless Area Connection or Local Area connection depending on if you are wired or wireless and choose Properties. In Properties, select IPV4 and click properties. Make sure Obtain IP address and Obtain DNS automatically is checked.

6)Once you do step 5 and still have trouble, your internet service just may be down due to technical reasons outside of your control. You can contact your Internet Service provider and speak with technical support to confirm this.

7)Check step 3 as this can cause routing issues.

8)Power cycle your equipment. This basically means to turn off and back on. The proper way to do this is in a certain order(MODEM > ROUTER > COMPUTER)

--Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds plug in your modem. Wait 30 seconds and plug in your router. Wait 30 seconds and turn on your computer. On your computer, renew your ip address. To do this, go to Start > Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". In the black DOS window, type
ipconfig /release
after the command runs type
ipconfig /renew

I hope this article was informative!

The internet said that they can not bring up your web page.

Internet Explore Cannot Display the Webpage
As you browse the Web with Internet Explorer, you may occasionally encounter an error message about the browser being unable to display the requested Web page.
If your browser is unable to display a page, the issue lies somewhere along the path from your computer to the remote website. In some cases, you can resolve the issue by troubleshooting your computer or Internet connection. Internet Connection Issue
If Internet Explorer is unable to display any pages at all, see if you are able to browse the Web on another computer.
If none of the computers in your home can browse, the problem is related to your Internet connection.
In some cases, you can resolve an Internet connection issue by unplugging the power connections for your broadband modem and router temporarily.
If you are still unable to browse, contact your Internet service provider for further assistance.

Malicious Software
If you are unable to browse the Web on your computer but can browse on other computers, the computer itself has an issue. In some cases, this can mean that your computer is infected with malicious software.
Download an anti-virus program on another computer and run it on the affected computer to troubleshoot the issue.

User Error If you receive an error in Internet Explorer when you attempt to browse to a single website, but other websites work, check to make sure that you are entering the address of the website correctly.
By default, Internet Explorer searches the Web for a close result if the address you entered is not associated with an actual website. If you have disabled this feature and enter a website address incorrectly, Internet Explorer displays an error message.

Remote Website Issue

If you are unable to browse to a single website and are certain that you have entered the website address correctly, it is likely that the website itself has a problem.
You can wait and attempt to view the website again later, or search for the website on Google or another search engine and click the "Cached" link to view a recent cached copy of the website.

Website is too busy to show the webpage error

Seems that your browser's configuration is messed up by something else if you did not reconfigure it manually. This may be caused by a toolbar installed or a malware. What browser are you using? Are you using the same browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc) with your family? If you, check their browser's configuration against yours and see which one is different. Your browser should copy the settings of their functional browsers.

To check in Firefox:
1. Click Tool menu.
2. Click Options
3. Click the Advanced category (group)
4. Click the Network tab
5. Click the Settings button under the Connection group
6. Make sure "No proxy" is selected

In Internet Explorer:
1. Click Tools menu
2. Click Internet Options (Bottom)
3. Click Connection Tab
4. Click LAN Settings (bottom)
5. Make sure "Automatically detect settings" is checked

If these settings are already set and it is still not working, try to uninstall some "newly installed" browser toolbars or download and install Anti Malwarebytes to remove all malwares in your PC. You can download it free HERE.

Cannot connect although plugged in

Check the ipaddress. Type ipconfig in command prompt. Then ping a website in command prompt if u get proper ip address e.g Try to ping in command prompt. If u are unable to connect. Tried to release renew Ip address.
Type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew in command prompt. If you are able to ping google and still unable to connect to website using internet explorer, then issue with browser or with OS.
