    Use a wired connection

    • Answer
    • Connect your PS3 to the Internet using an Ethernet connection.

      If you have an Ethernet broadband connection, follow these step-by-step instructions to get your PS3 online.

      Before you get started, please ensure you have an Ethernet modem or router and a Cat5 Ethernet cable.

      1. On the PS3 Home Menu, browse to Settings > [Network Settings] > [Internet Connection] and select [Enable].
      2. Scroll down to [Internet Connection Settings] and press the X button. You will be asked if you want to continue; select [Yes].
      3. When asked for a [Setting Method], select [Easy]. You will now be asked for your preferred connection method; select [Wired Connection].
      4. Using an Ethernet cable (sold separately), connect the LAN connector on the back of your PS3 to the LAN socket on your internet router. From the [Address Settings] screen, select [Easy]. The PS3 system will display your network settings; press the X button to save them.
      5. Press the X button to start a connection test. If the test is successful, then you have connected your PS3 to the Internet.

      Note: If the test fails, your network may require you to enter the PS3 system's MAC address. For information on obtaining the MAC address, see the related guide at eu.playstation.com.
