Hi. i'm trying to get my girlfriends notebook(advent 4213) connected to the net. i am using my own wireless net but when i click on the net it comes up saying this page cannot be displayed. do i h


If the Advent notebook normally connects to the internet without problem on her network, then you need to check the following:

1. That she does not have any proxy connection setting in her web browser that you do not use on your own network.

2. Check that her wireless adapter is configured to Obtain an IP address automatically and also Obtain DNS server address automatically.

3. Check the status of the wireless adapter connection and ensure that the Advent notebook has been given a valid IP address, i.e. if your are connecting to a wireless router on your network, you should see an address something like 192.168.x.x where the x.x depend on how your router is setup. If you see a 168.x.x.x address then the notebook is not getting a valid, routable IP address and you should try to do a Repair of the network adapter connection. Repair may also be shown as Diagnose and repair depending on which version of Windows is used.

Try to connect ps3 to net says the I P address is correct then says dns failed help ?


Go to NETWORK SETTINGS--INTERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS--on prompt select YES--CUSTOM--choose connection type--ENTER MANUALLY--select name of your router (see router's back)--most likely you'll have a wep which is your router's password (see router's back)--Leave IP ADDRESS Automatic--For DHCP Select DO NOT SET--DNS Settings select MANUAL--Type the following no.Given below--Leave MTU Automatic or select 1500 manually--Proxy server DO NOT USE--Enable UPnP--Enter or SAVE....you are done.
Try doing it manually but instead of using your original dns codes do it using these
primary at 4.2.2.2 and the Secondary at 4.2.2.1/3
I hope it helped...

4. Slelect MAC filters.

5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.

6. Save entry. At this point router will reset itself.

Okay,i manually setup an internet connection on my PSP but for some reason when i try to get on the internet with it it says:Communication with the server failed. A DNS error has occured (8041040F). I dont...


From what I understand you are trying to get online with your playstation and to do so you want to share the internet connection with your computer but two things you mention make me believe the problem might be one of these two solutions.

First in order to start an online gaming session, at least on Xbox live, you need your own DNS which is a Domain Name Service and unique address associated with your gaming device. Since your computer already is using that unique address which you put in manually it comes back as an error. You don’t mention if you have a router or not but I will assume you do, if this is the case you need to set up your playstation to have the network setup complete automatically which will enable your router to supply the playstation with another address which will be unique to it thus no error when trying to connect to a gaming session. If this fails on the automatic setting you will need to reboot the modem that connects your computer to the internet and then reboot your router with both the computer and the Playstation connected to your router at the same time, the modem will then supply the router with a new DNS and then the router will supply both the computer and the Playstation with a new DNS and its own unique address. Once the router has rebooted get online with your computer to check to see if your router completed its tasks. I f you can get online with your computer then now go back into the Playstation setup and make sure all of the network parameters are set for automatic such as DNS, no proxy, ect.. This should get you online unless you also have a firewall problem.

If you do not have a router, only a modem from your internet company, then you will need to disconnect your computer from the modem, no sharing, connect your playstation directly to the modem, then reboot the modem. All network settings still need to be in the automatic mode in Playstation to work properly. If that still does not work that would suggest your IP gives you a static address and you will need to call them to get your network logon info and then with that info in hand set the playstation up manually with that info.

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...

PS3 wireless connection and configuration problems


I don't know if you've tried Sony's website, but check this link http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectwireless.html and see if anything there helps. It sounds like the PS3 isn't detecting all your settings automatically.
