How to connect ps3 to computer?

Using remote play (via the wireless LAN feature of the PS3™ system)

Connect a device that supports remote play, such as a PSP™ system, to the PS3™ system using the wireless LAN feature of the PSP™ system. This connection method is available only on PS3™ systems that are equipped with the wireless LAN feature.

Preparing for use

Using remote play

The method for using remote play on a PSP™ system is explained below.


On the PS3™ system, select (Network) > (Remote Play).
The system will enter remote play connection standby mode.


On the PSP™ system, select (Network) > (Remote Play).


Select [Connect via Private Network].


Select [PlayStation(R)3] from the list of connections.

If the connection is successful, the PS3™ system screen will be displayed on the PSP™ system.
