Your wireless board might be defective. If you need a replacement I can sell one for about 10 us dollars plus shipping. It's easy to replace. Can't guarantee it will fix the issue but it's worth a try.

My ps3 says the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out every time i try to connect to the internet


macmall816

If you are getting the obtain ip address message but it is timing out this means that you are not getting a good connection to your network.

Let me know how you are connecting to the internet. Like are you connecting the modem to a router then connecting the PS3 to it via a wired or wireless connection. Also let me know the make and model of you devices in your network.

This info will help me see what is going on

Internet Connection


On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings".
then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes".
go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan".
If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point.
Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one).
select "automatic" for everything.
select "Test Connection".
the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded".
If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.

Cant get internet connection on my ps


first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.

try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following:
- explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address
- purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 168.126.63.1 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp

wonderful! that's always a good thing to hear - sometimes it is the "make sure you're power cord is plugged in" problem, eh :)

Ps3 wont join network


i had a simsilar problem with my nintendo wii. i also have a mac and broadband ( but that doesn't matter). if you get into your wireless router by going to 192.168.1.254 in your safari browser. go to "wireless" settings. there is a channel selection (1-7) change it to 1. that should work. if not change to 2 etc.
