    Same here - all of the advice from PS3 states that you have to pair it using the USB cable - but there's no socket on the controller. Bigben information states that you don't need the cable so I'm a bit scuppered!!

Bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
'
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)

Playstation network timed out


Usually this is due to a problem with the Internet connection. Check a few things. 1. what is the signal strength. Anything under 30% could give you this message. 2) is your internet connection down? 3) Is the date right. The last one is a big one. Certificates like you would get on a secured website (https) check the date to see if the cert is expired. This could give you problems. 4) if all else fails, reboot the router and see if it helps.

Wireless controller problem


Its not a memory stick! its a radio reciever that you need with the controller.

The remote bundled along has a seperate one.

Just make sure the switch on the dongle is set to PS and not PC (as can be used on a pc aswell)

Ps3


You can only sign into your Playstation account if you are using your own user profile on the far left of the XMB.

Do a Network test to see if you can even connect to PSN. Go to Settings, Network Settings, and do and Internet Connection Test.

if your test doesn't show your NAT type as either 1 or 2 then your router is being to restrictive. Try changing some of the settings to allow the PS3 full access to the internet.
