How To Set Up PS3 Wireless
There is a whole world of players out there waiting to take you down in your PS3 game of choice, but before you can connect to any of them, you need to learn how to set up PS3 wireless. Most of the PS3 systems come with an internal Wi-Fi antenna that can connect to any home network that you have access to. Once you get online, you can play multiplayer games, download movies and even browse the Internet, all from your PS3. When Sony designed the PS3, they tried to make the wireless connection process as easy as possible, so it should only take you a few minutes to get your PS3 set up. Be aware, however, that as soon as you establish a network connection with your PS3, it will probably have to download an update, which could take several minutes to complete.
Turn on your PS3.
- Select "Settings" from the menu. Then scroll to "Network Settings" and press the X button.
- Select "Internet Connection Settings" from the menu. Press "Yes" that you would like to make this selection.
- Choose "Easy," when you are given a choice between "Custom" and "Easy."
- Select "Wireless," When you are given a choice between "Wired Connection" and "Wireless."
- Choose "Scan." Your PS3 will now display a list of all the available networks in the area.
- Scroll to your wireless network, then select it. If you do not know the name or SSID of your network, it will generally be the one with the strongest listed signal strength.
- Select the type of security the wireless network uses. If you are unsure, select "None," and see if it goes through. Otherwise you will have to ask the person who set up your network for the type of security and the encryption key.
- Enter your encryption key. Select "OK" and you have now set up wireless on your PS3.
