I would suggest logging on to your home pc, checking the wireless settings then re-entering them into the PS3 internet settings, this happened to a familys PS3, but this solved it

I have wireless internet how do I get a ip address connect my ps3


The IP address is provided by the wireless router when you perform the connection process. You will need to locate your wireless network on the PS3, select it, and when prompted for the security key/code, enter it to gain a connection. Once the connection is established, the PS3 will have an IP address.

I have a ps3 ip's adress problem i have a belkin wireless router and when i turn on my ps3 it wont sign in so i go to test conection and it waits and then it says id's adress failed


Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Play Station


Now go to the settings page of the PLAY STATION

NETWORK SETTINGS ==>
INTERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS ==>
WIRELESS SETTINGS ==>
If you get confirmation screen displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet. click YES ==>
select EASY ==>
select WIRELESS ==>
SCAN ==>
you will see your SSID ( wireless network name)==>
select the security settings ( router wireless settings)==>
enter the KEY ==>
select the IP address settings EASY ==>
save your settings ==>
Test the connection .

Wired nor wireless connections for my ps3 wont work


if you setup your wireless in adhoc mode like useing the pc wirless it wont work because ps3 doesnt see adhoc wireless.

and for the ethernet connection is the pc setup right. you have to enable internet sharing on the accuall interface that has internet..
If local area connection 1 is connected to internet and local area connection 2 is plugged into ps3 then under local area connection 1 settings you have to set share this connection and in the drop down menu select local area connection 2. other than that you need to buy a router.

Ps3 wont connect to wireless


Hi,

Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks

Cant get my ps3 to connect to internet through my wireless router


Assuming the media test works (So the cable/wireless connections are OK) then it's possible that you're out of available IP addresses in the router. It shouldn't be a problem (Most router configs allow for over 250 IP addresses), but it might only have limited leases.

Try switching everything off (Except for the router), restart the router and then try the PS3. That should rule out a problem with DHCP

No internet ?


When you connect your ps3 with a ethernet cord you need to restart your ps3 when its connected. If its wireless you may need to check your router settings.

PS3 connection error


Are you connecting through a router?. If so set all of your PS3 settings to easy. If your trying to connect directly to a dsl or cable modem, you might not get connectivity but may get an ip address, as some providers require that you register your MAC address with them to connect a particular device. If you have a router...say a wired one, and you connect any PC through it and get internet, you should be able to hook up the PS3 and put it on easy automatic settings for the connection and it should connect. However, if the router is set for a static ip address (no dhcp), it wont hand out all of the information to the Ps3.
