Problem trying to get internet wireless


First, you have to have a wireless router connected to your modem. If it still doesn't work, you need to mess with the Network Settings on the PS3. Click on Internet Connection and check Enabled. Then you can go through the Internet Connection Settings and go through Easy or Custom and go through that. Then go to Internet Connection Test where it will test the internet on your PS3 if it's working right. Hope that helps!

Wot error is 80710723????


You have a network/router error. First go to settings, then Network settings, then internet connection settings. If you have a wired connection connection 1 - Custom, then manual settings, then auto detect, then automatic, then Do not set, then manual, DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220, then auto, then do not use, then enable.
If you are using a wireless connection 2 - WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X
and if neither of these works then try turning off your modem for a few minutes and restarting your ps3 =)

On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings".
then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes".

If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point.

select "automatic" for everything.
select "Test Connection".
the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded".
If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.
