Go back to the instruction that came with the router. I had a similar problem. You need the WEP KEY. On my router, it was in [brackets] under the serial number.

  • Step 1: Check on the status of the PSN.
  • Step 2: If the PSN is online, use the PS3 Internet Browser and try to visit any website. If you can, your Internet service is running correctly, go to the next step. If you cannot there is an issue with your Internet service. Click on the type of connection below for troubleshooting steps.
  • Step 3: Try accessing the PlayStation Store. If you can, this means that the PS3 can connect to the PlayStation Network and the issue is with the game. Try contacting the software publisher for additional assistance.

    Cant get internet connestion


    Are you hard wiring it? if so you may need to reboot your modem then start the ps3 back up. Don't unplug from the computer and connect it directly to your PS3 because the modem still has the computer's ip address and it won't recognize the PS3 until you reboot it. If it's a wireless connection, check to see that when you scan for wireless connection that the green wireless LED is blinking, meaning it's searching for a signal. If it's blinking, then try resetting the modem and the wireless router as well and give it another try. If the green light does not blink, then there might be a harware issue with your PS3. Good luck

    Trying to launch netflix streaming and i got the message "there was a problem communicating with the Playstation network. Please try again later." How do i fix this?


    Apascual67 -
    There are quite a few problems that could lead to you getting that message. In order of easiest to hardest to fix, here's a few of them:
    1: It could be that your PS3 is not connected to the internet.
    • Try going to the browser on the Playstation, and try loading a basic webpage, like www.google.com. If that works, then try Netflix again.
    • If you're not connected to the internet, then go back to the main menu, and go to the internet (or maybe it's called network, not sure) settings. Sign in to your home or dorm's wireless network, if there is one. I can't help you with that, as each network is different.
    • If you cannot connect to a wireless network, or if one is not present, then try connecting your PS3 to the internet using an ethernet cord, if you have one. (It looks like a phone cord, but the ends are bigger.)

    2: If you are connected to the internet, and you still can't access Netflix, then there's a few more things to try.
    • Most easily, turn your Ps3 off then on again. I'm not super sure if that will fix it, but it can't hurt to try.
    • Make sure that you're using the correct username/password to sign in to the Playstation Network, and that you're using the right combo for Netflix.

    3: If none of those work, then there could be a deeper network problem. Perhaps your home internet is set up incorrectly, or maybe Sony or Netflix are having server problems. Whatever the reason, I can't help beyond this.
    Good luck!

    Playstation 3 wireless internet


    Here you have to connect to your wireless router not your computer. Make sure you know your SSID (router's wireless name) and password.

    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,

    I guessing you live close to a neighbor that has an unsecured wireless network. It is possible that they changed their security settings to block out other IP addresses (meaning your PS3). The best solution would be to establish your own internet connection and/or wireless network thru a local broadband internet provider.
