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.

Cant connection to internet but ssid in and do not connection come's up with error code 51330


The error code basically means it cannot establish a connection to the network, like it can't even acquire an IP address.

If I have a router in my home, how do I connect to the internet with my PS3?


i don't know if you have the old form of internet where a lot of noise is made before establishing a connection but if this is the connection you have i think you can't get a connection because the IP is changing constantly each time you try to tuse the internet.

Assuming you have a wireless router and a modern internet connection. to connect to the internet i would do it wirelessly, not only does this save the hassle of having to plug and unplug one cable to and from the modem to the PS3 but also it saves you having a big mess of cables.

You should set up a network in your home as this way the PS3 might be able to detect this and attempt to connect to this network (assuming it finds a network). if however it does find a network you will need to input a form of password that allows access to the network to be able to use the internet. This can be usually found in the setup of the router which can be accessed by typing it's IP address into the address bar of your browser. for me the IP address of my router is written under the router itself but i don't know if yours is as well.

Once in the setup search through the options till you do find something like 'pass-key' and there might be a list of them which ever is chosen you must input that same password exactly as written in to the PS3 and hopefully you can connect to the internet.

Cant find ip address on ps3


If you are directly wired to your modem (not router), you will have to reboot your modem each time you switch between computer and console. When the modem boots up, it leases an IP address to the MAC Address of the connected device. Each device has a unique MAC Address. If the MAC Address does not match to the one it leased an IP to, it won't allow access to the internet.

You can get past this by "cloning" the MAC Address of your computer to your console.

To get the MAC Address (Physical Address) of your computer:
XP: Open the start menu, click "run" and type "cmd" then hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.

Vista: Open the start menu, in the search bar type in "cmd" and hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.

Now get into the network configurations on your console, look for an option of MAC Address cloning. Input the MAC Address of your computer, save and reboot.

Hope this helps.

Cant get xbox live without an ip address


An IP address or internet protocol address is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network utilizing the internet protocol standard (IP) n simpler terms, a computer address

is given by your provider (Who provides the Internet connection)
I recommend voting ;)

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.

I guessing you live close to a neighbor that has an unsecured wireless network. It is possible that they changed their security settings to block out other IP addresses (meaning your PS3). The best solution would be to establish your own internet connection and/or wireless network thru a local broadband internet provider.

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.
