How to test the connection of a PlayStation®3 to the Internet

PlayStation®3 is one of the most popular gaming consoles available in the market today.  It can either be wired or wirelessly connected to your router.

This article will help you test if your PlayStation®3 is connected to your network.

Step 1:
On the main menu of your PlayStation®3, select Settings > Network Settings.

Step 2:
Scroll down and make sure that the Internet Connection is set to Enabled.

Step 3:
Scroll down to Internet Connection Test and press X.

Your device will run a test to determine if the Internet connection is working.

If you get a Failed response for Connection Speed (Download)* or Connection Speed (Upload)*, you may need to check if your device is connected to the network or not.
