How do you connect PS3 to a Wired Network?


One of the main reasons that gaming systems won't connect to the network is because the Safe*Connect system sees them as an unknown device and restricts their internet access. So a way to tell Safe*Connect that your device is in fact a PS3 (and allowed to connect) is to run the Internet Connection Test.


If you are not able to connect to the internet with your PS3, open the PS3 Settings and choose Network Settings followed by Internet Connection Test. This should create enough traffic to have the system recognized as a gaming system.
