PlayStation 3 Error Code 80130182

PlayStation 3

This code suggests the PlayStation 3 is not detecting connection to the Internet.

Try any or all the following to resolve the issue all by yourself.

Disable PS3 Media Server Connection

This feature allows the PlayStation 3 to connect to DLNA Media Servers on the same wireless network. However, if this setting is enabled, it may interfere with Internet Connectivity.

To disable the Media Server Connection:

  • In the XMB™ home menu, go to (Settings) > [Network Settings]
  • Select [Media Server Connection] and press the X button.
  • Highlight [Disable] and press the X button.
  • Check Your Network Equipment

Make sure your network router supports b/g/n Wi-Fi connections

If the router does not support Wi-Fi, you will need to use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) that supports 802.11b or 802.11g wireless protocols. If you have a Wireless Access Point that is 802.11n, you will need to make sure you set it so that it is in mixed mode (accepts 802.11b or 802.11g signals). If you do not know how to operate or access your network equipment settings, (such as your DSL or Cable router settings), you will need to contact the manufacturer of the equipment directly.

The 40GB, 60GB, 80GB, and 160GB models of the PlayStation 3 support 802.11b or 802.11g wireless standards.

Confirm SSID

Verify the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Since scanning for SSIDs with your PlayStation 3 can pick up other wireless networks, make sure you have selected the correct SSID which belongs to your own wireless network. It is also possible that your WAP has the SSID broadcasting feature turned "Off", which means your PlayStation 3 will not pick up the SSID when scanning for available wireless networks. You will need to either turn "On" the SSID broadcast feature on your WAP, or speak to the administrator of your network to obtain your SSID.

Confirm WEP or WPA Security Key

If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password. If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.

Confirm if your Wireless Access Point Requires a MAC Address

If your WAP is configured to "filter" Media Access Control addresses (MAC address), you will need to enter the PlayStation 3's MAC address into the WAP's MAC filter table as an allowed device.


Check if you have available Firewalls set-up. This may need to be de-activated.

USB Equipment

Check if there is a USB cord connected to the modem. If there is, unplug this cord and make sure an Ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the wireless access point (router) then power cycle the modem and router to refresh the settings.

Also the PlayStation 3 is unable to connect to the Internet through the USB port, it must be connected via an Ethernet cord or via Wi-Fi network. You will not be able to use a USB adaptor or a cell phone USB adaptor with the PlayStation 3.

Power-Cycle ALL Network Devices

Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network devices and equipment making sure all lights on the modems has turned off, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. UNPLUG/DISCONNECT EVERYTHING!

Restore Default Settings

It may be necessary to restore all of the PS3 system settings back to the original "default" configuration.

Go Hard-Wire

Get an Ethernet cable and plug your PS3 directly to the modem/router.

Call Sony

See if their support team can help you get your PS3 back online.
