When you hooked up your connection to the PS3, did you reboot your modem and or router before doing so?

This will clear the memory of those two and allows the PS3 to gain its own IP and MAC address. Try this and see if it helps.

I have wireless internet how do I get a ip address connect my ps3


The IP address is provided by the wireless router when you perform the connection process. You will need to locate your wireless network on the PS3, select it, and when prompted for the security key/code, enter it to gain a connection. Once the connection is established, the PS3 will have an IP address.

How to connect to net via wire and wifi


I'm assuming Windows is the OS. After disconnecting from one access method but before connecting with another (modem to wifi or network wire, etc. the IP address on the notebook will likely not be acceptable to the new connection) open a DOS or Command "Box" or "Window" (go to Start --> Run --> type the word "cmd" or "command" without quotes and then click ok. At the prompt, (without the quotes) type: "ipconfig /release" (You can see all the variables for the ipconfig command by typing "ipconfig /?")

Establish a new connection via hardwire network or wifi and allow the PC obtain a new IP address as normal. If unable to access internet sites, you can try to forcing a new IP address by opening the DOS box again and type "ipconfig /renew" This should cause the machine to get a new IP address. The "ipconfig" commands will probably not force a modem connection to get a new IP address (I haven't run modems for a long time - so I'm not familiar with their procedure of obtaining an IP address)

Configuring router for Cable Internet (LINKSYS)

To configure your router for Cable you will need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to 'Dynamic IP' (DHCP) option. The router is set to this option by default.

Configuration Steps:

Step 1
Connect the cable modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN (INTERNET) port.
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to it wirelessly.

Step 2
Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.1.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, default is `admin' for password and username is blank (nothing).

Step 3
After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet Connection Type to 'Automatic Configuration (DHCP)' option. Under Setup, click on MAC Address Clone tab. Enable it and click on "Clone My PC's MAC". Do this from the computer which the cable modem was directly connected the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings and reboot the router.
Step 4

Click on SAVE SETTINGS and then on REBOOT THE DEVICE including the cable modem to apply the new configuration.

If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet, you need to:

- Log into the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET) appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g. 192.168.1.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to something different, e.g. 192.168.88.1. You can do this on your router under Setup > Basic Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.

- Uninstall your antivirus/firewall software (sometimes disabling or closing the software is not enough) and reboot your PC. After establishing the Internet connection through the router, reinstall your antivirus/firewall software.

I cant get the router to connect to the internet and cant get the password to work to use the set up wizard


On the back of your router press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds.
This will reset the router to factory defaults.

Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of the router into the Web Browser. The default IP address of the router is 192.168.0.1

After the connection is established, the logon screen opens.

To log in as an administrator, enter the user name of admin and leave the
password field blank (default), then click OK.

A connection with server cannot be established message I keep getting. I can see my router fine but cant connect.


This problem is because there is some misconfigurations that you might have done on the ip address part or either you have added a static ip address which is not getting along with either the DHCP address.

So just check that and try. or else remove it then put it back then try.

Connection error


Something is wrong with the Encryption and or Security key setting for the connection. You need to match the Routers Security key. Go to your Routers setup page to find out the exact settings. Setup a new connection with the known Security settings. It should establish a IP address then.

DIR-635 can't access the internet


I think you have wrong configuration of your router.

1. Some xDSL Internet Service Providers may assign a Fixed IP Address for your Broadband router. If you have been provided with this information, choose this option and enter the assigned IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway IP Address and DNS IP Address for your Broadband router.
2. If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must choose this option and enter the required information.

Can't connect to internet thro wifi


go to control panel and network connections, right click on the lan connection but not the wireless one and select dissable as the router may still be assigning the wired adapter an ip address. make sure in the wireless cards properties that obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line properties is selected. Firstly dissable wep to get the connection and then when up and running then apply wep or wpa again but make sure that the security code is set correctly at either 'Open' or 'shared' in the router.
