You MUST have a high speed Internet connection. Dial up will NOT work. You will need your logon ID (the ID you log into the service with) and your password.

1. Determine your high speed Internet connection.
a. Cable Modem provided by a Cable Company.
b. DSL service provided by a telecom company.

2. Determine your PS3's access to your high speed Internet.
c. Wired using an Ethernet cable (8-conductor Cat-5)
d. Wireless requiring no cable to the PS3. **

3. Choosing a router. (If you have one connected & working, skip to number 5.)
If you will be using option "c." I recommend you choose a wireless router with at least 4 ports. In case you have a PSP or get a wireless ready device later you are already set up to go.
If you are going the wireless route "d", I recommend the same in case you need to plug a device in directly.

4. "a" Cable modem setup. From your cable box there is an Ethernet cable that plugs into your PC. Locate but don't do anything yet! Follow the "Installation Instructions" that came with your router. Once it is installed and working properly go to step "5."
"b" DSL provided by Telco. From your DSL modem there is an Ethernet cable that plugs into your PC. Locate but don't do anything yet! Follow the "Installation Instructions" that came with your router. Once it is installed and working properly go to step "5."

5. Click: Wireless or Wired, the connection method you chose. The PS3 is supplied with one (1) Ethernet cord, you may need an additional one.
  • If your PS3 does not support wireless and you can not wire it you will need a Wireless Access Point, commonly referred to as a "WAP". Once you have one follow the setup instructions (very simple) and click the "Wired" link above.
Here is a pic of my WAP connecting to a 360.

If you need additional clarification or I missed something let me know and I'll edit this post to include it.

I did mine through auto set up which worked fine but will the download speed differ between auto set up and manual setup?

ok, I'm trying to sign into playstation network, but it says you have been signed out of playstation network- error (80710092), that's when I tried to sign in manually, when I first got on and my system was doing it automatically for me, the error number was 80710D23, what are these errors associated with, it can't be a connection issue, cause I have that, I have a game from psn that is still downloading despite this, and aslo, I can't download a game update for assassin;s creed 2 for some reason, yet my system will download this network game, albeit at a very slow pace, but still, and my signal strength is about 55-66%, I just don't understand. Oh, and the same thing is for system updates, no matter how long I let my system sit at the update screen it will stay at 0% the whole time, so for the last 2 system updates I've been forced to use a flash drive, luckily they worked. and when you say hi speed is required, is a wireless netgear rangemax router good enough, I've been having slow internet issues, would psn support satellite internet?
Welcome to Neoseeker. Turning off Media Server Connection works, which is in "Settings>Network Settings>Media Server Connection" and "DISABLE".

Edit: That second error code will clear after you power off the PS3 for 30 minutes. Use the power toggle not the standby.

Good luck.
