You may have to reset your router in order for you to connect. Just unplug it for about a minute, then plug it back in. Took me forever to get mine to work and that was what it needed.

I don't remember my gamer tag, and I borrowed mine to my uncle since I don't play it. But, since GT5 is out now, I may have to go get it back.

Ok I did that and I went to the settings but there is no Network settings. Edit: Never mind I found it. When I tested it it said failed.

does your wifi modem work properly? and are you seeing a green light flicker when trying to connect? it should flicker next to where you plug in your controllers for charging.

Maybe you need to manually setup a separate network security key for your ps3 (without restrictions) on your router. Some of them can be a pain in the ass..

I know my psp usually requires 2-3 tries on a new network before its set for life, so it could be that too.


You paid 200$ for a fattie?

nice man, you got the original 80gb? i like them better than the new ones, they are the last tones to come factory with backward compatability, and last to have the fancy chrome trim, sd inserts, 4 usb ports, and the touch sensor buttong. got one myself. keep on to it the 80 and 60 are becoming a lil hard to find and valuable. My gamertag is Major442

on the wifi thing, the network setting are ur best best like most of the guys were saying, the only problem ive had is connecting and having to put in a password, have u tried direct connect with an ethernet cable?

Hard wiring them it just easier then dealing with the wifi, i had a problem when anyone walked into my room, the playstation would loose connection sometimes, not to mention you'll get alot less lag, in the earlier models, the wifi isnt the greatest.

WIFI can be troublesome sometimes as it needs to be understood . Encryption and passwords are usually the issues . You can set it up with minimum encryption like WEP and assign a key . Thats what I did with mine as it took a little bit to get it running . Its about 20 feet from a Linksysy Wirelss 300N router and the reception is really good .

Mine sits right next to it like not even a half of a foot away. And I got connected. I had the wrong fucking password.
