I'm sure we can probably help

I'm sure we can probably help, but you'll need to give us some info on your setup.

How are you trying to connect your PS3 to the Internet? Wired or Wireless?

Do you have a router? Make and model?

I did some hunting around, and rather than try to regurgitate what I've learned other places, I'll just point you to a well written post at the Playstation forums. Let me know if any of this helps you.

You don't HAVE to have a

You don't HAVE to have a router, but you do need something that can assign the PS3 an IP address (routing capability). Windows XP computers have a feature called ICS, which stands for Internet Connection Sharing. Your PC will need to have a spare Ethernet port open to use it, so if you are hard wired to your cable/DSL modem, you'll need another add-on Ethernet card installed.

Set up the Internet connection on the PC, and plug the PS3 into the other Ethernet port. Run the ICS wizard, and Windows will assign the PS3 an IP address and share the Internet connection with it.

So, there's your workaround. However, it's MUCH easier, and in everyone's best interest to have a router installed between your gear and the Internet. Routers have a lot of security features that help protect your stuff from bad people, and it makes sharing your web connection with other things on your network significantly easier. Besides, basic routers with wireless capability are pretty darn cheap anyway. Keep an eye out for sales and you'll probably be able to snag one for less than $25.

Got my PS3 for Christmas and

Got my PS3 for Christmas and could not get it to connect through my wireless router. I called Playstation support and they told me my router was the problem. My firewall in the router was letting the PS3 assign the IP address then the firewall in the router was causing the problem. The PS3 service tech gave me all the ports that I needed to add and I called the router service techs and they helped me set it up. Took a little time and considerable time on the phone with techs but I've been online every since. Don't know if that helps but thats what it took to get mine going.

Hi, I've recently bought a ps3 & would like some help on how I can connect it to the internet. I've tried connecting it before but the only network i was able to connect to was linksys and the signal strength never grew past 12%, not good for online gaming. I would like to know what i can do to get a better connection.

well to start with you

well to start with you shouldn't hook your ps3 up with a wi-fi connection if your intention is to play online games such as socom the lag is horrable i suggest you use a wired router or most wi-fi routers have wired ports as well if u double check at www.us.playstation.com it not suggested there either
