AOSS is what you would see on some high end routers. if your router doesn't
support this method or have this button you can't set up your ps3 using
The PS3 does not have an AOSS button. AOSS (AirStation
System) is used for wireless setup of
devices for your network. Your
router will have a button on it for this. If it does not then it more
than likely does not have the ability to set devices up in this manner.
1)To use this set up for the PS3 go to Settings>Network
Setting> (Method) Custom> (Select Connection
Method) Wireless- (WLAN
Setting) Auto - AOSS. At this point the PS3 will
tell you to push the button on the router and that you have two minutes
or else the attempt to connect will stop.
Again this only works if your router has this button. and it is
not found on your ps3
so you'll need to set it up differently. if your home is set up with wireless router and your computers are connected online wirelessly read along....
JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.
1) go to Settings
3) Internet Connection
Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....
6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask
the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.
all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.
