Let's try the simplest things first. Restart the PS3. Then try restarting your router (unplug/replug it in). Make sure all the cables are nice and snug where they should be in both your router and the PS3.

If going for a wired connection, confirm that the cable to and port/cable slot on your router are good (try another cable and cable slot). If going for a wireless connection, confirm that other devices can access your router wirelessly.

Still having trouble? Check your internet settings on the PS3. Navigate to XMB > Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings. Run through it, selecting Automatic or Auto-Detect whenever possible. If that didn't work try setting it up manually. Here's a guide explaining each option of the manual set up process.

Hope this helps!

My ps3 will not connect to the internet...my computer is connected, but it's says that it wont find my IP address? HELP


Try the following:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)



Be sure to choose "Wireless" when configuring the settings if you are using WI FI for connectivity.

How to get it online with a ps3? I hooked it up to the ps3 with the Ethernet cable. It says connection failed .but it wont go online. Any help would be dearly needed. Thanks


First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :-

Im currently overseas does anyone know how to connect the ps3 thru the computer with paid internet service


Need to have 2 network cards in the computer to do this, one for the internet and another to connect the PS3. Once this is done. Open Control Panel and select Network connections. Right-Click your internet connection and select Properties. Open the advance tab and check the box that says (Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection). Click OK. The computer will promt and send a message saying some settings will not take effect till the connection is reset, click OK. Then reset the internet connection. After that start the PS3 and go through the setup for an internet connection.

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.

PS3 wont connect to internet


Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3

Ip address wont work on ps3 anymore


It is likely your internet connection is not working properly.

Unplug your modem, router, PC, and power down your PS3.

Plug in your Modem.
Wait for it to run it's full diagnostics.

Plug in your router and let it do the same.

Power on your computer and let it obtain an IP address.

Then re-try your PS3.
