Cant connect to netflix error code 80130182

Without knowing more, sounds like you need to check the PS3's WiFi settings to make sure the unit is really connected through your home internet service's router to the internet. Make sure the WiFi protocol on the PS3 and the WiFi password validate correctly in the Settings, and that they match that you have set on the WiFi setup of the ISP's router. With a mismatch here to the WiFi settings, nothing on the PS3 will connect to the internet. If it all checks out but the unit doesn't connect to WiFi, if other devices in your house do and you have matched the settings, could be an indication of a problem with the PS3 hardware, scope of which to help you resolve is beyond this forum.

How do I get my PS3 online without an ethernet cable? I have wireless internet on my laptop.

You will need to go into the PS3 dashboard. Go to the settings drop down menu, it is towards the left. Go to the internet option. Select wireless and then Detect. Select your network and input password if neccessary. The PS3 will let you test the connection. You will be connected!

I need help hooking my PS3 wireless


You have not specified what kind of connection are you going to use to get online on your PS3, i am listing steps below first for a wireless connection in case you have a internet connection with a wireless router or modem.

Make sure that your wireless Internet is turned on and working properly,Turn on the Playstation 3 game console and follow these steps below

1) Access the "Network Settings" screen under the "Settings" screen in the main menu.

2) Select the "Internet Connection" tab and select "yes" when the system displays a new screen.

3) Select "easy" on the new screen that pops up asking what type of installation you want to use.

4) Select "wireless" when it asks you what type of Internet connection you have.

5) Select "scan" on the next screen so that the system searches for all available Internet connections in the area.

6) Select your home Internet when the screen pops up displaying the available Internet options.

7) Save your settings on the next screen.

8) Test the connection to make sure that it works properly, also you would need to enter the secure password if you have set it for your wireless modem our router for wifi access in order to connect it with your PS3.

Now for connecting your PS3 through a wired internet connection you can follow the instructions given at this link, this is with diagrams for you to understand better.

Let me know if this helps and please do not forget to rate my solution

Wish you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Wont connect to wireless internet

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

Forgoten my password

Physically connecting it to the router will allow internet access, but if you're trying to connect wirelessly and don't know the security key you can try logging onto the web interface from the connected computer and reset the key.

Hope this helps.
