    I had the same problem. I turned all of the buzzers on and then pressed the bind button and it fixed them. It would be nice if the game came with instructions.

I tried several times to fix the problem by syncing the buzzers. it never solved the problem. finally i removed the dongle and blew on it very hard. i plugged it back in and retried. THIS ACTUALLY WORKED. i have played several times with no problem.
hope this is helpful.

I have two sets of buzzers and I had a similar problem, but I managed to work it out. It was disappointing that neither the game bundle nor the other set of buzzers came with an instruction manual.

Here's what you do:
1. Insert the USB connector into the PS3.
2. Turn on the four buzzers by shifting the switch towards "Power" on the side of the buzzer. The red buzzer and the blue LED will flash. Hold the switch there until the blue LED stops flashing and stays lit.
3. Once all four buzzers have the blue LED's on, hold the "Bind" button on the USB until the blue LED on the USB begins to flash. The red buzzers will begin to flash when the blue LED on the USB flashes. The red buzzers will then stay lit, indicating that the wireless USB connection has been bound to the four buzzers, and hopefully they all should work.

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop

Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Ps3 wont let me sign in to PlayStation Network

It has worked before, right? Have you checked your network? Are you wirelessly connected? Can other computer go on the internet fine? Try resetting your wireless router and cable/dsl modem and then resetting your ps3 to see if that works.

Hope this helps,

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work

if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

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
