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.

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

PS3 Does not recognize 5GHz. On Mobile Hotspot switch phone temporarily to 2.4 GHz and you should get a connection.

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.

Thank you for posting this Mary. This is the only thing that worked and that I hadn't tried myself. Everyone else reading do the same. Custom network settings then disable upnp at one of the last steps and boom the old beast finally connects with no adjustments needed router side. 😎

**Answering for completion due to rough previous answers**

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

In most cases (especially with modern AC/AX routers) it’s a network security configuration issue - a lot of modern routers bias towards WPA3 over WPA2 so this stuff will continue to happen -- the wireless hardware Sony used doesn't see WPA3. 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 are better options. Powerline Ethernet is only as good as your house wiring; it's the Konami code of networking because if you’re dealing with vintage 20+-year-old contractor-grade Romex, it’s gonna reflect the quality of contractor-grade Romex. I get it - going into your attic or basement isn’t fun, but a good Cat7 wall run is way better in the long term.
  • Basic (reduced security): Systemwide WPA2-AES downgrade (AES>PSK if possible for security with less of a compromise -- how you set this varies per router, so look into it based on your specific router.
    • NOTE: Expect your ISP to give you a hard time under the guise of “security” (especially if it’s one of those app-managed ones they are now using, like the Spectrum AC routers), especially if you cannot change it on the admin side. IT CAN be done, but they may lie or deny it can be done so push back as needed. I have had to push back against this stuff and cite things like my A+ cert to get them to listen before. This tradeoff is fine because realistically WPA3 isn't a major security bump, but it's not something you SHOULD DO unless there's a legitimate need.
  • Intermediate (secondary compromised, but main secured): If you can setup a secondary router with WPA2-AES (Again, PSK IS discouraged but so be it if all else fails; it's not as bad here) but on your normal network. These will coexist if set as a repeater and the ISPs cannot touch you for this, but it requires a capable router (ASUSWRT, DD-WRT or stock FW with the option required; likely needs DD-WRT or ASUSWRT).
  • Advanced (requires enterprise or business class gear from eBay, FB Marketplace, or your preferred source of enterprise surplus): Setup 2 VLANs: VLAN 1 (main), and VLAN 2 (quarantined). NOTE: SOME prosumer routers support this, but you usually need a “managed” switch (Cisco, HPE, Aruba, Juniper or L2/L2+ TP-Link) or a capable “Smart Web” switch (Ex: TP-Link DE/PE/MPE). You want to set this up as a quarantined network for your PS3 and other devices as needed; do not add things that do not need it. This is the fastest way; no need to tell ISPs off and it keeps your main network untouched. Essentially you just built a homelab here since you have to use enterprise-level equipment or good business class; this is CHEAP BUT you have to manage it yourself.

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.

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

da

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

da

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

My ps3 does not see the wifi that i'm using at home. All other devices are connected to that wifi, but ps3 doesn't see it on the wifi list. How can i fix it ?

PS3 will not recognize 5GHz. In Mobile Hotspot temporarily change this to 2.4 GHz and you should get a connection. Work for me!
