    I'm having trouble getting my PS3 online. I'm in a university residence with a network port in my room. To get onto the internet one has to connect through a university proxy server. So now the problem is that after manually entering settings for the network and the proxy server address etc my PS3 HAS NO option for the user name and password for proxy server authentication. How do i get to put in the details so that i can access the internet?. I know for sure that i have internet because i can access the local university sites via my PS3's web browser but i need authentication for the proxy in order to access external web sites.

    Can anyone Help?

    Thanks

    Ask your university's IT department if their residence service is for game machines. If it is, ask them how to use it.

    This wont help, because everybody should use the proxy and it's authintication , the problem is the PS3 does not allow you to enter a user and pass for proxy settings , is it possible to creat a bridge between my laptop and my PS3 ? and how ?

    Which indicates that you know that what you are trying to do is against university policy. You have been a member here as long as I have and should know by now that we don't support such activity. Closing thread.

    Please review all the rules at least twice before posting here again.
