An internet connection is required to connect to a network. You are responsible for internet service fees. For details, refer to the information

provided in your service contract or contact your internet service provider. Use only an Ethernet cable compatible with 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T

networks. Do not use a cord for a standard residential telephone line or cables of types other than those mentioned here. Using the wrong type of cord or cable can cause more electrical current than necessary to flow through the LAN port, which may lead to heat build-up, fire or malfunction.

Wireless networking feature

The frequencies used by the wireless networking feature of the console are the 2.4 GHz (WLAN, Bluetooth)/5 GHz (WLAN) ranges. The 2.4 GHz range of radio waves is shared by various devices. The console has been designed to minimize the effect of other devices using the same range. However, in some cases, interference from other devices may reduce the connection speed, shorten the signal range, or cause the connection to be terminated unexpectedly.

Operation in the 5150-5350 MHz band is restricted to indoor use only. When using the console scan function to select a wireless LAN access point, access

points that are not intended for public use may be displayed. Only connect to an access point that you are authorised to use, or one that is available through a public wireless LAN or hotspot service.

Moisture condensation

If the console is brought directly from a cold location to a warm one, moisture may condense inside the console. Should this occur, the console may not operate properly. In this case, turn off and unplug the console until the moisture evaporates (this may take several hours). If the console still does not operate properly, contact the appropriate PlayStation customer service helpline which can be found within the guarantee booklet.


For safety reasons, before cleaning the console or connected accessories, disconnect the AC power cord from the electricity supply.
