    I just got a Play Station 3 40 Mbs. I went through the set up procedure to get on the internet but it does not work. My house is both Cat 5 wired with hubs, switches and router. All five computers have no problem accessing the internet. What could be wrong?

Were having problems connecting our Wii to our router we have a Cisco E2000 router. on the Wii a screen pops up when im trying to connect that asks for a SSID n i cant find that on the rounter or anywhere...


Your SSID is the name of your wireless network, which you probably entered yourself when you set up your router. If you didn't change anything, its probably something like generic like: "ciscoxxxx" or "linksys".

Where do i put hinternet connection cord at?


1. Go to Best Buy. Get a Linksys wireless router. Hook up your internet to the slot in the back that says INTERNET. Then attach an internet wire into slot 1. Plug the other end into your computer. Repeat with any other computers. Put the CD in any computer hooked up with the Linksys. Set it so wireless connections are allowed and set a password. Use the internet channel, wait until your Linksys pops up, and enter you password. You're good to go.

Note: I was talking about this Linksys: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/supp...

2. Get a $40 Wi-Fi adapter and hook it up to your computer (assuming it has internet). After setup, You will have Wi-Fi, but it has a tiny range. I recommend the router. The router has a MUCH larger range and costs $20-$120 depending on how fast and how large of a range you want. Any router will work as long as it's wireless.

Cant connect to wireless network on my ps3


Hello,
First off you have a wireless router hooked up to your ISP correct.
anually set a static IP for your wireless connection (When going through the network setup in Network Settings --> Internet Connection Settings (wireless), choose Custom instead of Easy when the page asking for either appears).
Set the IP address to something outside your DHCP range. e.g. 192.168.0.5 (for dlink router) or 192.168.1.5 (Linksys router)Default gateway should be the IP of your router. For dlink, this should be 192.168.0.1 and Linksys should be 192.168.1.1DNS Server can be the same as your default gateway, mentioned above.
Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0.If you're using some sort of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc), set it in there as well when it asks to do so.
And that should get you going. I actually haven't done this on the ps3, but its my info from experience with regular pc to pc networking.
Also If you haven't tried this already, change the wireless channel from 6, to 1 or 11 in your router and wireless consoles.
If all else fails, try this http://www.clanbluntforce.com/forum/index.php?topic=864.0

Can the ps3 be hooked to the internet without using a computer?


Yes - but it depends on your current setup. The way I would recommend setting it up would be plugging the PS3 into a router. A router is a box that splits your internet among the computers, laptops, and any other device that uses internet in your house. It is possible that you don't own one at the moment and in that case I would recommend that you purchase a Linksys "WRT54G" router. All you need to do is have your incoming internet plug into the yellow port on it and then any out going plug into the other ports labeled one through four.

If this didn't answer your question - please post a comment and I will get back to you and hopefully help you out =)

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
