    I have the same problem. I bought a wireless router to connect with my ps3 but I couldn't because it kept saying the ip address was not found or was timed out. Sometimes though it would work but for 5 minutes or an hour but then the internet on my computer wouldn't work. Are there any wireless routers specificly desined for usb modems or should they all work?

Recommendation:

Get a Modem and a Router in order for both computer and PS3 to be online at the same time.

PS3 assumes that it is connected to a router/gateway and is not designed to have a modem directly connected to it as would need additional hardware/chips incorporated.

How to get it online with a ps3? I hooked it up to the ps3 with the Ethernet cable. It says connection failed .but it wont go online. Any help would be dearly needed. Thanks


First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :-

Connecting a wireless router to Tiscalli broadband connection


  1. USB modem is connecting a PC USB port with a DSL phone line: CANNOT be connected to a ROUTER LAN (ethernet NOT USB port).
  2. Wireless ROUTER is NOT a modem and it CANNOT connect the Internet (or WAN) LAN port to any "phone line"
  3. Connect the Router Internet (WAN) port to Modem (you need a LAN MODEM = a modem with a LAN/ETHERNET port)
  4. Be sure your internet is running before strting ROUTER configuration with Router Company CD

Toshiba Cable Modem PCX1100u


OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.

All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.

The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.

Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.

Let me know how you get on..

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.

Printer and Modem


are you using a USB cable to connect your modem ? Are you using a USB cable to connect your printer ? If you are using a USB cable to connect your modem, try using an ethernet cable and your LAN card instead. It will work better and you won't need modem drivers to make it work. You do however have to have a LAN card or built-in LAN adapter. As long as you have one of those 2, the best way to hook up your modem would be by using the ethernet jack on the modem straight into your LAN card/adapter. If you are not using USB to connect your modem then please send me your printer model and how it's hooked up and I will help you figure it out. Hope this helps.
