Can't connect PS3

1 replies 141 views Edited Sep 11, 2012

This is my situation. 

I have my PS3 at my school (Wake Forest University) and I'm having trouble connecting it to our school-wide internet. 

This is my second year, I'm in a different building, but last year, I connected easily and painlessly. 

Access to our internet requires a username and password.  The PS3 finds the student internet but won't allow me to click on it to connect on the internet connection settings screen. 

I've also tried a wired connection through an ethernet chord but the PS3 didn't recognize it and told me to insert one. 


Any help? 

Thanks a million.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.


I would suggest firstly having a word with whoever runs your school internet to see if they can help you, I would also ask around to see if there are other PS3 users who have the same problem or who have since solved it.
