    thanks but it was already off. i even contacted my router's manufacturer and they didn't help. the only thing i can think of is my computers firewall, but my ps3 is a DMZ on my router so that shouldn't matter.

All of my computers connect to the internet but my ps3 wont


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!

2. check the device connected to the router
all computer need to be connected at the same time.
3. Bring all the computers up one at a time and this should resolve the address conflict.

Turning on PS3 causes home wireless network to stop working


I have the same problem. My router is located about 1.5 feets from the PS3 and when I turn on the console my wireless network barely works. Something I did was change the frequency of the wireless. It was working in channel 9 and now it's on channel 3 with no problem.

Intermittent loss of internet cnnection.Very annoying!


Sounds like it might be a bad USB dongle causing the problem. Have you tried another USB port on your computer to rule out a faulty dongle?

The other problem might be a faulty CAT-5 cable. Make sure that the cable is not be stepped on or rolled over by a chair. It is very easy to break the wires inside the cable and still get connections off and on.

Check these solutions and let me know your results.

PS3 internet problem


Hi, best way to connect the PS3 is to buy a router, wireless or wired router. and if you go for a wired one, connect the ethernet cable (RJ45) from the PS3 to the Router,

Other option is plug ethernet cable into PS3 & other end into the Network card which will be built into the base unit, otherwise you can buy a ethernet card which should cost you about £10.
but you will need the PC switch on, whenever you want to use the PS3, as well as you will have to configure the network setting to get it working,,

Have a good new year
