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.

I cant get on the website it says to enter ip adress for ps3


Your PS3 IP address is the address of for your internet connection. it has a format of ... 192.168.0.0
In your PS4 go to the XMB, then to settings, system settings, and there shoudl be a tab for system information & it is that number there.

This sucks


try to check the right ip address by connecting it first to your computer, check the ip address on your command prompt ( if you are using windows platform ) then type ipconfig /all

take note of your gateway, dns server, ip address ( so that your in the same network ) and the subnet mask.

Ps3 sharing an ip address


it's something with your router. try assinging static ip addresses. that'll fix it. or contact your router manufactere and ask about DHCP and figure out that way why your router is assigning everthing the same ip address

Cant establish wired connection


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 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

Ip and proxy error


well, if you know how to setup the ip addresses manually both on your modem / router and on the ps3 i recommend you do that... but bear in mind that your dhcp server (on your modem / router) should prohibit automatic assignment of that same ip address with your ps3... for that you have to specify a range of automatically assignable ip addresses apart from your ps3...

if you have the dmz (demilitarized zone) option on your modem / router, set it up for the ip address of your ps3, which you've setup manually...

example:

router ip: 192.168.2.1
ps3 ip: 192.168.2.10
ip address pool: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.250 (this shpould be manually setup not to interfere with the fixed ip address of the ps3)
dmz host: 192.168.2.10 (ip address of the ps3, which enables "opens" all of the ports for this ip address)

apart from that if you use any proxy servers to connect to the net, you have to specify these in ps3 settings as well...

there are a lot of threads on various forums on how to tweak your network connection to optimize for ps3...

i hope this solves your problem...
