    It sounds like you don't have a connection with your provider. You need to call your provider and ask them if they can see your router on their system. They will not be able to troubleshoot your router since everything behind a router is protected but you need to at least see if they can see it. Also, log into your router page. It will be something like 172.0.0._ and check to see if you have DHCP enabled. If you have static enabled then your router will not be able to lease an IP address from your provider. Let me know if that works.

Sounds to me like you have the security turned on . Just type in your security key on PS3 and it should connect. Best of luck!

Hi Im Trying To Connect My sony ps3 slim to the internet through my laptop (Vista) with an ethernet cable. im connecting to the internet using a usb dongle. I have no broadband hardline. Ive Made a...


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

How to connect your PS3 to the internet wirelessly



Before we connect the PS3 console to the internet we must be familiar with the settings of the router. Listed below are the steps on how to access the router and how to connect the console to the internet wirelessly.

How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Steps on Connecting PS3

1. Power-cycle ALL network equipment. Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network equipment, including any Wireless Access Points, Routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) Modems, and Broadband Modems for two (2) full minutes.

2. Confirm that your internet connection is enabled. in the home menu, go to Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection and select Enabled.

3. Scroll down to Internet Connection Settings and When prompted, "Do you want to continue?" select Yes. On the next screen, select Wireless as your connection method. Pick "Scan"

4. From the list, pick your SSID.

5.On the next screen, press right on the directional pad to continue

6. Pick your WLAN Security Setting (either WEP or WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). If none, pick None (and skip the next step).

7. If you selected a Security Setting, enter your Security Key or Network Key with the keyboard. Press the Start button to exit the onscreen keyboard. Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.

8. The system will check your network configuration settings and display the information. Save the Settings.

9. Test the connection on the next screen.

10. When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed"). If you have successfully connected to your network, Congratulations, you have completed the network setup process.

Hello, I am having trouble connecting to servers on black ops. It loads up until im about to start a multiplayer game, the loading circle just keeps spinning and then kicks me out. What can i do?


You can make sure you have an open nat. To perform this you will need the following router information. You obtain this inside your router menu usually 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 entered in the search bar of your internet browser. You will need to find your router information such as the Base IP or what you used to enter the menu, DNS server 1+2, Default Gateway, I suggest using a piece of paper and writting all that information down. Second step you will want to go into your menu and find out your DHCP range usually 192.168.2.100-149 or 192.168.1.100-149 depending on the main IP address of the Router. 3rd step go to the Gaming and Applications tab and find and set the DMZ (note you will want to set an IP easy to remember as well as outside of the DHCP range) so in case it looks like the numbers I gave I would select an IP around 192.168.1.160 or 192.168.2.160 and enter that in the DMZ as well as write this number down. 4th step Reboot router which actually puts the information into the router and makes it active. Now with the information you have go into your PS3 now. Main Menu, Settings, Network Settings, Connection Settings either wired or wireless, You are going to want to do a Custom Connection Type, Network Device auto detect, Manual IP settings, Enter your information gathered from your router, MTU automatic, Proxy Server dont use, UPnP disabled, then hit X to enter for your connection test, You should get a Nat Type 1, or Type 2 either are preffered. Continue into your game, if your still having issues there is a selection inside of the game before your MultiPlayer screen and it says Nat Type Preffered is Open moderate does work however, then Party Privacy usually it shows open, but if your still having issues, try to select Locale Only. This will look more for the closer game servers to you. Hope this helps Happy Gaming.

Play online ps3 in hotel free wireless Internet n won't connect


I'm staying in a hotel and have free wi-fi and wired internet but I can not seem to get online. During the connection test the "obtain IP address" step is successful, however the next step "internet connection" fails. This is an unsecured network and does not require any wpa keys , and I don't think it requires an SSID. I had no trouble connecting my laptop.

I can't download upadate 7.01 for call of duty just keeps giving me error message. I am connected to the internet.


If you are stuck on the Downloading game settings screen after clicking Find Game, this may be the fix for you. I did this on my PS3 and it worked.

1) Go into network settings and then make sure everything is custom, no automatic.

2) Find the IP address for the PS3. This is the problem!

3) Set the IP address to 192.168.1.100. If COD4 does not work, change the 100 in the IP to a higher number (101,102,103 etc.) (The closer to 100, the better.) Then try again.

This simple thing worked for me, and should work for you.
Reason: Most online games use the IP address from the PS3, but COD4 doesn't. The designers of the game made it so that COD4 scans for its own IP address. It scans from 192.168.1.100 up and that's why if you CAN get COD4 to work with the Downloading Game Settings box, it takes an hour. By changing it to ....100 you are forcing COD4 to choose that IP address which is the fastest one.

PS3 (80GB) Obtain IP Address : Failed, Help?


Try swapping the ends of the ethernet cable between your PS3 and the router. Otherwise, try a different ethernet cable. Also check that there are lights on by your ethernet port on the PS3 and the router.
