This is because when you hook up a internet cable to the ps3. its searchign for a connection.
You may be behind a firewall or router. you probably need your router password put in if you are indeed using a router. Otherwise if your not hooked up to the internet you have no need to go to "Network" in the consoles homepage.

IP address is your personal connection address on the internet. Assigned by the company you rent it from for you Home internet connection.

Hope this helps.

I hear Resistance 2 for ps3 is gonna be amazing Have Fun!

I keep getting a pop up message saying there is another computer on the network with the same i.p. address, this sounds dangerous, if it is, is it something a novice computer user can change ?


Depending on your operating system- it is
Basically you need to go to network connections > Local Area Connection > Internet protocol TCP IP > set the IP to obtain automatically for both

Check your computers to see if someone assigned a specific IP address to your system. Once you've done that, you'll be fine.

I CAN GET THE INTERNET EXPLORER TO WORK WITH MY MODEM.... SOMEHOW I THINK THE IP AND DNS ADDRESS IS WRONG... IT KEEP SAYING CHECK THE DOMAIN SERVER.... WHAT IS THE CORRECT IP AND DNS AND SUBMASK...


Hi, Go under network connection Right click on wireless Network connection or LAN connection (depens on what you're using to connect to the modem, a cable or through a wireless connection) and then properties. Scroll down until you see TCP/IP and double click on it. Make sure that it's set to obtain an address automatically and to obtain a DNS server address automatically. If you are using a router, do the same, but in this case you can set a static address. The subnet mask is 255.255.265.0 and the DNS address has usually the same address of your router.

It needs an IP address. A router hands out IP addresses using DHCP in most default settings. Your computer has to be set to "Obtain an IP address automatically: and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" in (TCP/IP) Properties of LAN Properties for your Device name. You can also use hardcoded IP addresses. It's pretty complicated.

Acquiring Address Problem


you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

Netopia 3347-02; I cam connecting two computers cia the ethernet; the second computer keeps getting booted off. What can I do to solve?


I am looking for this fix right now, and one solution I saw but have not yet validated is this:

Go to your router settings in your browser (http://192.168.1.254/). Click wireless and enter your Wireless SSID as stated here. Now enter your WEP key on the DS. On the DS, choose not to auto obtain an IP address, and enter an IP starting with 192.168.1.*, less than 192.168.1.253 (for example, 192.168.1.228). Put in 255.255.255.0 for subnet mask. Now, here's where I made the mistake: You don't use the gateway as listed in your router settings, you use your router's IP address as a gateway (this is listed as local network IP address on the main page).
Now just put in your primary and secondary DNS servers as listed on main page, and you should be ready to go.

Network Connection


First off, the 1394 connection is a firewire connetion. Firewire is a less popular and slower alternative to USB 2.0 connections. Disregard that in respect to your internet connection. Now in regards to your desktop internet connection.... -Go to the control panel, select network connections, then local area connection. -Right click and select properties -Under the general tab scroll down to Internet protocal (tcp/ip) Make sure the settings are set to automatically obtain an IP address. If they are and still are not working you can try to manually assign an IP address yourself. The laptops ip address might be something like 192.168.1.2 so whatever your laptop ip address is make the desktop 1 number higher in the last field (192.168.1.3 for example). Don't change any numbers other than the last field. You can find out the other information like subnet mask and default gateway by using the laptop. On the laptop go to the start menu, hit run. Then type in cmd, this will bring up a dos prompt. Then finally type IPCONFIG . Listed will be the laptops active internet connections and it's IP addresses. Copy over the subnet mask IP address and the default gateway address into the desktop and like in the previous step just manually assign the desktop a different IP address 1 number higher than the laptop. If the dns server's address isn't listed on the laptop a quick call to your dsl provider will solve that question.
