1. How do I configure WiFi?

If your WiFi is unprotected, just go to: Settings >>> Network Settings >>> Internet Connection and choose Easy. If it's protected, choose Custom and you'll be prompted for the SSID, the encryption method and the security (i.e., encryption) key, which you'll need to get from your wireless router's configuration page if you don't already know it. If you have network problems with the PS3 or the other devices on your wireless network after adding the PS3, it may be necessary to assign a static IP address to avoid conflicts between the PS3 and other devices (e.g., a PC) on your wireless network.

PS3 cables

You will need to purchase the appropriate cables to connect your PS3. Cables are required for connecting the PS3 directly to a HDTV. Many retailers will try to sell you very expensive HDMI cables for connecting the PS3 to your HDTV, but these are generally a waste of money. Quality, low cost HDMI cables are readily available and will provide identical results to the high priced cables. On-line dealers, such as, have quality HDMI and other types of video and audio cables at very good prices.

How do I turn the PS3 on and off?

There is a master power switch on the back of the PS3 console. This is normally kept in the ON position and this will keep the PS3 in a standby mode with a red LED (light) displayed on the front panel. Next to that red light on the front panel is a touch sensitive on/off button. To power on the PS3 console you place your finger on this button and the adjacent LED will turn from red to green. To turn the console off hold your finger on the power button for about 3 seconds, until the adjacent LED start flashing, and the PS3 will power down.

Another method to turn off the PS3 is from the XMB under "Users" you can select the command to "Turn System Off." Using a remote, you can power on the PS3 console by pressing the ‘P’ button, on either the game controller or the Sony BD remote. Finally, you can power on the PS3 console by inserting a Blu-ray Disc (BD), a DVD or a CD into the loading slot on the front panel of the PS3 console. In this case the PS3 will power on and begin playing the disc.

How do I setup my PS3 with my HDTV?

The PS3 displays a graphical user interface (on-screen menu) using a XrossMediaBar (XMB) with drop down menus. The "Settings" drop down from the XMB is used to configure the audio and video capabilities of the PS3. 

HDMI or component video connections are required for High Definition. TVs without these type of inputs will not be able to get HD video resolution.
