Re: cant move off manual settings screen

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.

The Wireless Security might be enabled in your wireless network. Check the wireless settings of your wireless router (encryption or wireless MAC filter). If the wireless settings are correct, you may try to manually assign a static IP.

Ip address

check your ip configuration again if you set it up manually, set everything to automatic for easiest setup. If it continues to time out check you modem connections, and make sure if you have a router that you are entering any wep keys that are setup for the router.

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.
