Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, I have had my ps3 for about a year and a half now, and recently my ps3 has been playing p. In the last month or two, i have had the problem of the black screen of death, and my ps3 used to freeze after every single message.
I now encounter the problem that my ps3 after a year and a half of connecting perfectly, has stopped connecting to the internet.
I do a connection test and it says connecting to the access point.... then exchanging key information....then failed.
I am assuming that, as every thing else in the house can connec to the internet fine, the problem stands with the ps3 exchanging the wrong IP address information to the wireless router.
P.S. I am using wireless network, adn my ps3 is about 10 feet away from the router. I also have a reasonably strong connection when playing online.
Restore your default settings. check your security key and you shoudl be good to go. it's nothing with your ps3 and probably just something with yoru router. also try restoring the default settings and just connecting directly to your router or your modem with an ethernet cable
