/\ I would suggest the user manual of the PS3, or the PDF online one.
Maybe even Google.
Pshh you weren't fired yet for playing video games at work?
Dude it's not your PS3. You can set everything to default on your PS3 or have anything turned on and still be able to play. It's something blocking ports. Firewall. Play @ home and for gods sake will this guys boss read this ****.
check when connect up in the internet settings what NAT you get, NAT 2 is what you want to get NAT 3 i think theres a problem and NAT 1 is slow? chances are as it is your work theres a firewall to prevent access to certain ports, which you need. so go to your IT department (if you have one) or whoever is in charge of the net and get them to allow the ps3 to access the ports or put it in DMZ for the ps3
