Today, we're going to talk about wireless Internet connectivity problems with the PlayStation 3. Now, like all devices that connect to a wi-fi connection you can have all sorts of different problems, and we'll help you diagnose a few now. First of all, make sure that your wireless connection is on. That is a basic one that, problem that you'll see all over the spectrum. Go into your network settings, and make sure that you've got got those settings on, that you're connected to the to the right network. Make sure that your firewall is configured to let in whatever port your PlayStation 3 is trying to connect through. Now, this is not a common problem with modern routers on PSP because a lot of them are set to auto configure, self configure, but sometimes if you have static IP, or specialized settings you may have to go in and open up a specific port so your PlayStation 3 slips through security and you're able to access the Internet with it. Another thing you can do is connect your PS3 with a hard network cable instead of a wireless. You've got a port in the back especially for that. A lot of times, you can identify trouble areas, hardware problems by just putting in a harder connection directly to your router to your PS3. If all of a sudden you've you've got a connection, you either have a lot of conflicting signals around, or more likely you've got a problem PS3 antenna and you'll need to get that repaired or replaced.
