PS3 cannot connect to internet.

12 replies 3240 views Edited Jun 30, 2012

How can I correct this?

Internet type : Wireless g

Strength : 100%

 

My PS3 will fail to connect to my internet at all, it's not just not signing in, I tried to test connection and it failed on the first test!

I tested the internet on my other devices, and it worked. Last time I connected to the internet with my PS3 was 10-11 hours ago. 

My PS3 has never done this.

Did you enter the password correctly?

 

On some routers, passwords are case sensitive.

 

At the bottom of the screen, it will say why the test failed and even an error code sometimes. Can you post that?

No Error Codes, Just Timed out

I said I have never had this problem before, so that isnt possible, and all the characters in the password are number.

>Restart router

 

> check if psn is down in your region

 

is your ps3 on dmz, static ip? maybe someone else is connected to your ip address, make sure to reserve it on your router settings.

Why not try restarting your MODEM and ROUTER AND your PS3........ I power cycle my equipment every other week, and I turn off everything in my house when Im gone on long trips, and for the last 6 years, i've never had an issue connecting to the PSN/SEN

I had the same issue, found out my wireless router was broadcasting the same channel (1) as another wireless router in the same vicinity.  Changed the channel on my router to like 8 or something and it worked.

It might be because of the PS3 itself,if the PS3 worked with the router and the router is able to give signal to all his electronics.  Then maybe because of a network/wireless card in the system.  The system should be picking up the wireless signal like it has been. Have you moved the PS3 at all?  This may not be a issue,but sometimes the signal that the router gives gets weaker over time in a cheap router.  That's all I know for now.
