How do I conect to the internet to play games


Below are instructions for connecting the PS3 to a wireless network (Wi-Fi) using the [Easy] setting. For other network connection options, see How to connect the PS3 to the Internet.

Text walkthrough

Power-cycle ALL network equipment.

Turn off (unplug) all of your network equipment, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. See How to power cycle PlayStation 3 network devices for more details.


Make sure that all settings for the access point have been completed.

Check that there is an access point connected to a network with Internet service near the PlayStation 3. Settings for the access point are typically set using a PC. For details, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point.


Confirm that an Ethernet cable is not connect to the PlayStation 3. If the Ethernet cable is plugged in, the PlayStation 3 will automatically attempt to connect via the wired connection.


On the XMB home menu, go to (Settings) > (Network Settings) and press the button.


Then go to (Internet Connection) and select [Enabled].


Then scroll down to (Internet Connection Settings) and press the button.


Select [Yes] when a confirmation screen is displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet.


Select [Easy] and press the button.


When prompted for which type of connection method, select [Wireless] and press the button.


Under WLAN Settings, select [Scan] and press the button.

If you own a wireless access point that supports AOSS (AirStation One-Touch Secure System), then you must select [Automatic]. These wireless access points are commonly made by Buffalo, Inc. AOSS will automatically configure the necessary settings. Follow the on screen prompts to complete the setup.


You will see a list of access points within range of the PlayStation 3. From the list, pick your SSID and press the button.

If you do not know which SSID you should use or if an SSID is not displayed, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.


On the next screen, confirm the SSID then press the right direction button to continue. If you press the button, you will edit the SSID.


Select the security setting that you want to use and press the button.


The types of security settings vary depending on the access point. Contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for information on which setting to select.


If you selected a Security Setting, enter your security key.

Press the [Start] button to exit the onscreen keyboard.

Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.


The encryption key is displayed as a series of eight [*] no matter how long the key may be. If you do not know the encryption key, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.


Once you have entered all the information, a list of settings will be displayed.

Press the button to save these settings.


Depending on the network environment, additional settings for PPPoE, proxy server, or IP address may be required. For details on these settings, refer to the information from your Internet service provider or the instructions supplied with the network device.


Press the button to test the connection.


When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed").

If you have successfully connected to your network, congratulations, you have completed the network setup process

I am trying to setup a wireless connection from playstation 3 to my PC. I have netcomm 3G wireless router. When I access the playstation 3 menu to change to wireless connection, it scans and reads the...


does it say the ssid of the netcomm if so just hit start start and accept the ssid then just use all the defaults to connect.

if the wireless is encrypted it may be asking for a network key and you have to find that. it would have been the wireless passcode that you set when setting up the router if it has one. by default there is not one.
