Does my PS3 have wifi?

36 replies 147494 views Edited Sep 18, 2009

Hey guys, want to ask you guys a question about the wifi. I bought the PS3 when it first came out, so i bought the PS3 for around 700$ 80GB if i can remember(it can play PS2/PS3 games) i dont know if it has wifi built in or not xD. i want to play multiplayer games in my room but i cant because i have to connect my cable to the router which is in my dad's computer room....so does anyone know if i can play in my room wireless? I'm a noob so don't know that much, sorry Smiley Sad              If you want to add me my PSN is Extortion-xx

Wow if you bought the ps3 when it first came out, your are no noob!

Just a noob at trying this.

Anyways, AFAIK every ps3 has had wifi from day one.

If you a wifi router just go into network setup when it is not plugged in with a cable and follow the prompts.

All you really need to know is your security key and the access point ssid.

No, they don't all have wifi. The 20gb PS3 does not have wifi but not sure how many people have those and since you said you have an 80GB, you do have wifi. Just clearing up the whether all models had it or not.

Read the manual, it helps you understand your system better... I think there is also couple of pages telling you how to set up the wireless connection on your PS3. All PS3 does have wifi beside the 20GB hard drive ones...

The only model that doesn't have wifi is the 20GB.

If he had a PS3 since day 1 wouldnt that make it a 20GB?

You should read your manual to find out for sure what you have.  The 80GB model didnt come out until about a year after original launch did it? Just asking as I'm not sure on that one.

 

I have a 40GB I bought so as you can see I waited a while.

20GB and 60GB were both day 1 launch systems, and since he said he spent $700 it's most likely the more expensive 60GB.
