I have ethernet cable connected to my cable modem but still wont conect to internet


If it's failing the IP test, that would imply that it can't talk to your router, not the internet, since that's where it gets it's IP address from. (Although XBox may do this with an internet check) So:
-First, have you tried a different ethernet cable to the XBox; one that you know is good?
-Secondly, ports on the switch can go bad without the whole switch failing. Have you tried plugging it in to a different one in the router?
-Assuming you have a dynamic service such as a cable modem, have you tried plugging the XBox directly into that modem wire coming out to the router?

Be sure to power cycle the XBox on each of these checks so you remind it to go out and check for a connection. ( this would be the same as ps3 also)

If like me you already use a DMZ for your PS3 connection;
Try going to TIME AND DATE SETTINGS and update them "via internet"... Dont know why, but seemed to solve the problem

Cant find IP on hardwired PS3


is that modem setup to a computer before hand? you need it to be programed with a computer then after you access the internet, then hook up the modem to the ps3,

if you bought a new modem then you need to call your provider and have them program it

Ps3 help


the ps3 has a built in wireless modem. if you do not have a router, you might not be able to connect your ps3 and laptop at the same time.

turn everything off.

now in this order, turn on your ps3 and connect to your wireless verizon modem after it comes back on. do not turn your laptop on, since your modem probably will not give out two dynamic addresses. does the ps3 work now?

Connecting a 3 modem to the ps3


ALLS YOU SHOULD NEED IS A 4 PORT WIRELESS ROUTER MOST COMPANIES ISSUE ONLY ONE IP... YOUR COMPANY MAY SELL ADDITIONAL IPS, BUT IT WILL BE CHEAPER TO PURCHASE A ROUTER

Ip and proxy error


well, if you know how to setup the ip addresses manually both on your modem / router and on the ps3 i recommend you do that... but bear in mind that your dhcp server (on your modem / router) should prohibit automatic assignment of that same ip address with your ps3... for that you have to specify a range of automatically assignable ip addresses apart from your ps3...

if you have the dmz (demilitarized zone) option on your modem / router, set it up for the ip address of your ps3, which you've setup manually...

example:

router ip: 192.168.2.1
ps3 ip: 192.168.2.10
ip address pool: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.250 (this shpould be manually setup not to interfere with the fixed ip address of the ps3)
dmz host: 192.168.2.10 (ip address of the ps3, which enables "opens" all of the ports for this ip address)

apart from that if you use any proxy servers to connect to the net, you have to specify these in ps3 settings as well...

there are a lot of threads on various forums on how to tweak your network connection to optimize for ps3...

i hope this solves your problem...

Connecting to the Internet


Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins. Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.
