[PS3™ system] Updated 05/06/2013

If you have trouble trying to access files via DLNA with your PS3 or your DLNA media server:

  • Confirm that all network cables are properly connected from your DLNA media server to your router.
  • If using a wireless network, make sure your computer and PS3 can connect to your wireless router.
  • Make sure you are using a 802.11b or 802.11g compatible router (802.11n is not supported by the PS3, however, 802.11n routers will work as they are generally compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g).
  • Make sure you have a server running and it is properly configured. Click here to visit the DLNA website for additional information on compatible hardware.
  • Attempt to reboot your computer or media server.
  • Make sure you have properly configured DLNA on the PS3. Click here for information on setting up DLNA on the PS3.
