Well, I'm not completely sure how to help exactly. This problem sometimes prompts as "DNS" error followed by an error code. If it displays a DNS error, then your problem is that the PS3 cannot find the modem (and router if you have it connected that way).
DNS errors on the PS3 simply means that it cannot find (see) the modem/router.
One way of correcting this would be to reset your modem (and router if you have it connected that way)by unplugging it (from wall and power port). Keep it unplugged for 1 minute or so. Power down your PS3 at the same time.
Plug in your modem (and router if you have it connected that way) and allow for it to reset.
Now power on your PS3 and go to the network settings and establish a new wired connection. Follow the prompts and test the connection afterwards.
Mind you, this is a general means to solving the problem. Try this first to see if you are successful.
I do hope that this helps you.

you need to bridge, yes
the other thing you need to do, is right click on the internet connection and say "Allow other computers to connect to the internet via this connection"
this should allow the ps3 to grab an IP address via DHCP

I type in my belkin ip adress in the box to go there and every time it will say faliure to connect to webpage


You could have the wrong address, try the following.

Open up the start menu, windows icon bottom left.

Vista/7: In the search bar, type in "cmd" and hit enter.

XP: Click on "run", then type in "cdm" and hit enter.

Now you should have a black screen with white lettering.

Type in "ipconfig" and hit enter. Look for the mention of "Dafault Gateway". The IP listed there should be the address of your router. Type that IP in your browser.

If the above did not work: Connect the computer directly to the router via ethernet cable. Reboot the router then the computer in that order. If you are already connected via ethernet cable, finish off the rest of the steps.

Then repeat the above with doing a ipconfig to find Default Gateway.

I'm not sure about setting up Linksys WRT54G2 Broadband Router in conjuction with desktop Sony Windows XP. I have a HP Pavillion dv6700 notebookWindows Vista) to configure the router so I can use it...


the cable should go to any of the pc's u wish to configure the router with,then all you have to do is configure the router via internet explorer,just type 192.168.1.1 in your adress bar and use admistrator for both password and username(these are the defaults) the pc that u wish to set the router up must be set to dhcp(this is done by going to network connection settings selecting properties then where it says internet protocol(tcp/ip)
select properties and select obtain an IP address automatically(this will make router give you an ip adress)

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.

Ps3 to internet


Difficult to explain but i'll try:

You got 2 options.

1. Buy a router and connect the modem to the router wan port and find a manual how to set it up. Then through your router you can connect (a lot of) pc's, laptops or ps3.

2. Buy an extra network card and a crosslink network cable cat5e. Use software like gatekeeper to connect both to internet.

maybe the second option is the best because sometimes isp providers register you mac adress(unique adress of your network device). It's not the fastest solution.

The first is the most professional but require some knowledge of routers, ppoa, pptp, fixed ip, Wan ip, and lan ip.

I did the second option a lot with speedtouch modems and draytek routers.

Good luck, let me know if you need more assistence.
