If the connection still fails after following these instructions, follow the on-screen instructions to check your settings.  You may have to get some info from your ISP and refer to the instructions supplied with your router.

I struggled setting up the wireless internet connection on my PS3. It seemed that no matter what I did, I kept getting the error message 8001000B. After reading some help materials on this website, I determined that I needed to add to my router list of allowable MAC addresses the PS3 MAC address. Once I did this, the setup was as easy as shown on the manual.

Steps:

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

I found a fix for me.  We have AT&T Uverse.  On the sheet with our info, it lists our WEP.  Turns out the tech had actually set it up for WPA.

 

So when setting up my network on the PS3, I merely needed to choose WPA instead of WEP.

 

I then went and undid all the MAC work I did on our home router.

 

Hope this helps someone.

yeah I jsut got this problem aftter the 2.70 Update! & cozdiver THAT DOESN'T WORK!!!!!! X[ I know how to set up a connection! The problem is that the damn wifi light isn't even turning on & it won't even detect a signal when I clearly know that there is a signal (casue I'm right next to the F**king router)! SONY better have the mo-jay of problems (including this 1) fixed by  the next update, or they're gonna get TON's of lawsuits & complaints from the community! The only way I've gotten my PS3 to connect to the internet was I had to reset my settings & have the ethernet cord plugged in even B4 I turn on my console!

I got the same f**ken code too when trying to connect wireless,  The one thing I can connect through wireless if I manually enter the ssid and wep key and save it w/o doing a test connection.  Re-start then the green light starts to blink.  I've notice this after I updated to 2.76 version too.  and the support guy at sony told me that I have a hardware issue and I had to send it in for repair it would cost me 149.95 plus shipping.  Any one else get this error message too since the update?

After looking over the internet for answers I found a fix for the 8001000A and when the Playstation 3 (with firmware version 2.76) is hooked to a wireless router (in my case a Netgear WNR834B v2).  Below are the steps I took. 
  1. Reset your router to factory defaults.
  2. Go to Select Network Settings under Settings in the home menu.
  3. Select Easy then Wireless.
  4. Then select Enter Manually.  Then enter in your SSID of your router.  Then rest of the setting should be set to Automatic.
  5. However DO NOT TEST CONNECTION.  Just save and turn off the playstation3.
  6. Then turn off Playstation 3 from the back of the drive.
  7. Unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds.
  8. Plug the power cord in and turn on the Playstation 3 switch.
  9. Wait 5 seconds and turn on the Playstation 3 and it will work.  You can even test your connection and it will work.
 However if you want your security settings on the router then once the router settings are back then repeat steps 2 through 9.    Hope this works for all.  I do not think replacing the unit is the answer.  Any question just let me know.

I found that this works too but it still wouldn't pick up access points.  I've tried unplugging the router still doesn't work when trying to find access points and I think it might the firmware update it self.  My psp and pc picks up my wireless access points so I don't think its the router.
