    I have set up my PS3 wirelessly and have no problem getting to the PSStore or PS3 web pages but for some reason I cannot get to any other web page.

    I am simply typing in e.g. www.bbc.co.uk into the search facility and just get no returns. When I test my internet connection it is fine.

    Any ideas what is going on??? Really frustrating me trying to work it out

    Dont know if this means anything but 'Proxy Server' is 'Do Not Use' and 'UPnP' is 'Not Available' and NAT Type is 3. Other than those settings everything else looks normal

    OK this is getting stranger. I went to the online manual section and noticed it was powered by google, so I typed the address in there and can access any page I want from here. So why not from the Internet Browser section???

    Have you tried rebooting your router ? Maybe try a wired connection and see if that works. Sorry but quite baffled regarding this problem. I must admit I haven't used the browser extensively and only tried it once or twice when I first got my PS3.
