Set it to Auto and it will pick up an address from the router.  I am assuming that your router has DHCP enabled.

How can I fix ps3 error 8013031b


prez330 answered this question in a post a while back. Google is your friend on problems like this, I found his post by searching "ps3 error 8013031b".

According to Sony, these are the steps you should take to fix this error code. It has something to do with the way your system obtains its IP address from the network you are connected to. This should fix it.

SETTINGS > NETWORK SETTINGS > INERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS > WIRED CONNECTION OR WIRELESS >

WIRED CONNECTION > CUSTOM > MANUAL SETTINGS > AUTO DETECT > AUTOMATIC > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X

WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X

Hi trying to set up wifi but keeps coming up with ssid and wep


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Before we connect the PS3 console to the internet we must be familiar with the settings of the router. Listed below are the steps on how to access the router and how to connect the console to the internet wirelessly.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Steps on Connecting PS3

1. Power-cycle ALL network equipment. Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network equipment, including any Wireless Access Points, Routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) Modems, and Broadband Modems for two (2) full minutes.

2. Confirm that your internet connection is enabled. in the home menu, go to Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection and select Enabled.

3. Scroll down to Internet Connection Settings and When prompted, "Do you want to continue?" select Yes. On the next screen, select Wireless as your connection method. Pick "Scan"

4. From the list, pick your SSID.

5.On the next screen, press right on the directional pad to continue

6. Pick your WLAN Security Setting (either WEP or WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). If none, pick None (and skip the next step).

7. If you selected a Security Setting, enter your Security Key or Network Key with the keyboard. Press the Start button to exit the onscreen keyboard. Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.

8. The system will check your network configuration settings and display the information. Save the Settings.

9. Test the connection on the next screen.

10. When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed"). If you have successfully connected to your network, Congratulations, you have completed the network setup process.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya

I cant play games online


You do not need a DMZ for ps3. jsut setup a SSID if wireless. Encrypt it (for your own saftly) and PS3 has wireless capablity. Just join the network with the SSID and WEP key and the PS3 will get an IP address. Also no port mapping is needed. Leave all port to auto open due to DHCP is going to get your PS3 a new ip every time you turn it on.

Ps3 what do i need to hook up my ps3 to the internet i have wireless apple wireless i believe at


in the menu select settings/network settings/internet connection settings/wireless/auto detect/automatic/ make sure that when you select the wireless that is yours, that you choose the same security setting... if it is 'none' you are in good shape (no password needed). for the others, you will need to type the password exactly as it is on your modem/computer (case sensitive). the following is directly from sony. (just in case)

SETTINGS > NETWORK SETTINGS > INERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS > WIRELESS > WIRED CONNECTION > CUSTOM > MANUAL SETTINGS > AUTO DETECT > AUTOMATIC > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X

if this helps, please rate...if not, respond and i will help you further...thanks

Cant connect to internet


Are you connecting wirelessly or with a cord? if wireless, you need to make sure that you are selecting the same security setting as the connection that you pick in 'network settings'. If the option is 'none', then you need not worry about a password. however if it has a password, then you need to make sure that you type that password in (case sensitive). I had the same problem and this worked for me. hope this helps...please rate if it does....thanks

if that doesn't work try following these steps....

SETTINGS > NETWORK SETTINGS > INERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS > WIRED CONNECTION OR WIRELESS > WIRED CONNECTION > CUSTOM > MANUAL SETTINGS > AUTO DETECT > AUTOMATIC > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X

You need to connect the ps3 to the wireless router you use the same ssid on all devices that connect into the router. I think thats where your settings are wrong.

Connect ps3 wirelees to internet


On your PS3, do the following:

- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless

Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.

For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.

Hope that helps!
