How do i set up my ps3 to play online at my college.

#1ToastyAnakinPosted 8/24/2011 7:36:28 PM
I was wondering if you guys could help me. I just can't seem to get my ps3 to connect to the network.

I can make the ps3 browse the internet and my laptop. But not the PSN.

How do i make it work?

I am at Grand Valley State University

if your ps3 can browse the internet I don't see why it can't log into the PSN. All you really need is an internet connection (which you have) and a profile.

If you are connecting online via the college connection then it is probably quite likely that they have blocked access to the PSN.

It would make sense as well, as they probably don't want to encourage online gaming at their college.

If so, you're screwed, short of obtaining another connection.

Please support the gaming industry that both you and I love by choosing to play your games legally.

The internet browser should give you a log in screen. For my school I put in my school username and password and I'm good to go.

If nothing works then transfer to another university.

Why? Because **** you is why.

You don't. University networks aren't exactly encouraging online gaming while you are at school so they close those ports off.

I know my school makes you login so maybe try logging in on the browser if they have that.

PS3 and online should not be used in the same sentence.
