Run through the setup screen to set up the network. If the auto connect doesn't work you may have to set it up manually. To do that you need to either set the ip addresses up to work with your router, if you're using one, or with your isp's ip numbers, dns address, gateway etc. And if you're using a router that has a wep or wap key remember that you must have that in too. You can not make connection if these numbers are wrong.

If you're using a router and manually configuring your ip number would have the same first three numbers that your router uses ie 192.168.xxx. and the last number is one you assign the ps3, one that isn't being used by something else on your network. The gateway address is the number of your router and the DNS numbers are the ones your ISP uses, usually listed on their website.

Also remember if you have to manual configure that these numbers will not work at someone else's house as your ip # will be different.

How do i connect to my wireless thats in my home...says connect ehernet cable my desk top is in the other room i have wireless why do i need too connect with cable


You don't.

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 once you are prompted, select "Wireless" rather than ethernet. Ethernet is only when you have the cable plugged directly into the console.

you can set your playstation 3 online by two ways, 1- by a wired connection, and 2- Wireless,

1-Wired Connection: Plug an ethernet cable from your highspeed modem to the back ethernet input on your ps3 system, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wired Connection. and follow steps
2- Wireless Connection: You must have a Router connecting ethernet cable from your intenet modem to the router, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wireless Connection and follow steps,

hope this helped you on setting up your ps3 connection :)

I have connected my PS3 to my computer using an ethernet cable, but it keeps saying its not plugged in on the screen.


if you're trying to have internet connection on your ps3, you're not supposed to connect it to your computer, you need to connect it to your internet modem using either ethernet cable or wireless. hope it helps.

Only router can give you proper NAT settings that can allow you to play online. Since you have a USB internet stick, try to buy a USB to Ethernet converter first. Then you can now use a router

Connecting to the Internet


Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins. Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.

Ps3 wireless


It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
