Using remote play (via an access point)

Connect the PS3™ system to an access point using an Ethernet cable. Use the wireless networking feature of a device that supports remote play, such as a PS Vita system or a PSP™ system, to connect to the PS3™ system through the access point.

Example of a common configuration

Hints

  • A wireless router is a device that adds access point functionality to a router. An access point is a device that allows you to connect to a network wirelessly. A router is a device used when sharing one Internet connection among multiple devices.
  • A modem may be equipped with router functionality. Connect the PS3™ system to a device that is equipped with router functionality.
  • If the access point and modem both are equipped with router functionality, turn off the router functionality of one of the devices. The PS3™ system and the device that supports remote play must be connected within the same network. If two or more routers are used at the same time, the PS3™ system and the device may be connected to separate networks and you may not be able to use remote play.

Preparing for use (PS3™ system and the device that supports remote play)

To use remote play for the first time, you must register (pair) the device that supports remote play, such as a PS Vita system or PSP™ system, with the PS3™ system. To register (pair) the device, select (Settings) > (Remote Play Settings) > [Register Device].

Preparing for use (device that supports remote play)

Create a network connection for connecting the device to an access point. If the device already has a saved network connection, you do not have to create a new one. For details on creating a network connection on the device, refer to the user's guide for the device.
