Did anybody ever figure this out? I have the same problem. Took it down to a repair shop and everything connected just fine. But at home my WiFi and network cable don’t work.[br]

See if you could buy a 2.5ghz router and hard wire it to your main router, then try connecting it

This can be caused by a bad WiFi chip, software issues or a setting issue.

In most cases (especially with a modern AC/AX router) it’s a network security issue - especially modern routers which typically use WPA3 out of the box. The WLAN chip Sony used here isn’t WPA3 compatible. This issue leaves you with a choice:

  • Bad option (please, please avoid if possible): Powerline Ethernet. The reason I despise this option is unless you *need* to reach for these things, there’s better options. Powerline is only as good as the wiring in your house and is honestly the network equivalent to the Konami code. If your home’s wiring is hopeless beyond supplying power, so is Powerline. I get it - going into your attic or basement ain’t fun, but a good Cat6a wall run from the office to your PS3 won’t be crap.
  • Basic (reduced security): Downgrade to WPA2-AES systemwide (PSK is less secure, so AES>PSK when possible!).
    NOTE: Expect your ISP to give you a hard time under the guise of “security” if it’s one of those web managed specials like the modern Spectrum router) and you can’t change it - they may lie, so know your router so you can push back, and do not be afraid to cite credentials like if you hold an A+ cert as a weapon against their reps. WP3 isn’t a big of a bump from WPA2-AES in regard to security, so it is an option - just a subpar one.
  • Intermediate (secondary compromised, but main secured): Secondary router with WPA2-AES (Again, PSK discouraged but so be it if all else fails) as an option/default on the same network.
  • Advanced (requires enterprise or business class gear from eBay, FB Marketplace or your preferred source of surplus): Setup a VLAN with your main network on VLAN 1 and the legacy network on VLAN 2 to quarantine the risky LAN on the network. SOME prosumer routers do it, but you usually need a Cisco, HPE, Aruba or Juniper switch for example and two routers. Your best bet is an old 802.11n/ac router that can run DD-WRT. This is the fastest way, since you don’t need to tell your ISP off. If you can manage these things, this is the way to do it even though you basically have a “home lab”.

If it’s not the network, start with resetting the PS3 back to factory settings, and pray. You may even need to format the PS3, so backup the console first. If it doesn’t fix that way, the WiFi chip is bad.

On Network settings go to custom then when you get to Upnp disable this setting! I tried everything the internet offered nothing worked until I disabled this.

Probably the wifi chipset is faulty. Recommend buying a new one or sending for repair. Apparently it is not a software problem.

Either the wifi chip is off, or your network is 5g, which PS3 cannot recognize. The solution to either is to connect your PS3 to a router using an Ethernet cable.

Well then maybe you can explain something to me then, I had just moved and gotten internet, being 5g and when I first logged on to my PS3, it had no problem signing in, then out of nowhere it started having issues, and also showing that obtaining ip addresss had failed, then yesterday, i again had no problem signing in to the psn or anything at all, then out of the blue this morning I am having troubles yet again

I’m having the same issue! Even with an Ethernet cable. 4 ps3’s and not one will connect to internet.

Have same problem. There are 4 lines on my cell account. We all get 20 gigs of tethering. There are 2 ps3's and 1 ps4 in my house. My wife's and my son's phone will connect hotspot to the ps3 that is saying no access point detected when I try my phone. My phone will connect hotspot to the ps4 but not ps3. I know the solution sounds easy, just use thier phones or just use the ps4 but they have thier own tether gigs and I dnt play ps4 online. This connection method use to work before cpp cut everybody off from using hotspot. Now they allow it. I spoke to cpp and they told me the access point settings had to be edited which we did, still wont connect hotspot to ps3.

I've noticed a lot of people having the same issue with 5g signals being in their house, the ps3 cannot connect to these 5g signals but the ps4 can, my solution to if its a 5g signal is to go into your dashboard on your wifi network and change one to 2.5Ghz, then try to connect your ps3 to the internet if you're still having problems it could possibly be the chip
