Okay, unplug your internet modem for 15 min, keep the connection to the PS3, of course. do automatic settings, not manual, select easy but DO NOT GO FURTHER until you plug in your internet. Let it cycle, the modem may shut down. if/when it does, turn it on and continue. The PS3 should automatically find everything by itself. Confirm then test the settings.

My ip adress is gone of laptop how do i fix it

Normally IP Address is assigned by your router which then also provides gateway and dns settings. On the IP address screen, select Obtain automatically for both IP and DNS.

If this does not solve your problem, please explain fully what the problem is.

D-Link 2100 AP is working in Wireless Client mode. It is connected to home network with cat5 cable. The remote ADSL modem is and DHCP on. The first computer in the network obtains IP and...

Check in your router to see if your router is set up to be a DHCP Server. If your router and adsl are both set up to be DHCP servers, sometimes they will fight with each other and some computers seem to have problems getting adresses from this kind of setup. Make sure that only one is set up to give out adresses, then check on your second computer to make sure that it is set to obtain adress automaticaly. If someone has set a manual adress in that computer that is not on the same subnet as the router, they will not comunicate. If this does not solve your problem, try putting in manual adresses into both computers: IE, subnet mask, Default gateway in the first, and in the second with the same subnet and default gateway,

Cant obtain ip adress

Have you set up your lynksys to allow wireless QoS? If not go to your lynksys broadband wireless software. If you don't know how enter into your explorer bar, log in with lynksys, default is top line blank password 'admin', go to Applications and Gaming tab and enable Wireless QoS, you'll also see all of the places to establish and open ports for specific applications.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.
