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.
1. in the internet address bar type in 192.168.1.1 or routerlogin.net 2. enter admin and password in the fields 3. your now in your routers setup 4. find a setting called nat 5. set it to open instead of secure
this changes your nat type to 2 if that doesnt work
1. login to router as usual, but find a setting called default dmz server 2. enter the IP address of your PS3 as the dmz server (to see what your ps3's ip is go to network > connection settings and have a look.
this should definitley make it a nat 2 - but try the first method
Easy Pie! This is a cinch anda guarantee work through. It involves putting your PS3 into a DMZ (demilitarized zone) which simply means opening all of the ports on it.
If you have the following problems, this is likely to fix it.
Not being able to join rooms
Not being able to speak over your headset
Not being able to hear other people over their headset
Not being able to join private games
Any problems to do with connectivity to the PSN, especially if your computer will connect to the internet, but your PS3 won't.
Part 1-(On PS3)
Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal IP address. Normally whenever a device connects to your router it will be assigned a different internal IP address. These are normally 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and so on. Assigning a static one will ensure that your PS3 will get the same one every time it connects.
Go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 XMB. Choose whether you are using wireless or wired.
Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected.
This will display a page where customizable IP Addresses are available to be entered.
IP Address- This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Use 192.168.1.80, simply because it is unlikely that 80 other devices will be connected at the same time.
Subnet Mask - always set to 255.255.255.0
Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router.
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to
cmd [Hit Enter]
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway".
Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
Proxy � When you get to the proxy screen, select "Do not use Proxy"
MTU � Automatic
UPnP � Enabled
Part 2-(On PC)
In your Internet Browser, type the address of your default gateway, this will take you to your Router Configuration Page. Look for any mention of DMZ
When you have found this, it will ask you for the Static IP of the DMZ host. This is simply the Internal IP that you assigned your PS3. We used 192.168.1.80.
Finally, turn off your Router, PC and PS3 for a few minutes to ensure that the new settings are loaded. Then you're ready to go!
first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.
try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following: - explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address - purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 188.8.131.52 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp
right fist of go on settings on the ps3 menu then go to network setting then click onsettings and connection status list take a note of all the ip addresses and servers then go to internet connection on the same menu and click on scan then click on your router name and then lick onenter ur wep key if u av 1m but if u dnt then cck on none then press right then go o custom on the address setting then manual on ip adress settings type in all ip address and servers and stuff then click on auto on the mtu dont use proxy server enable unpn click right then press x to save ur settings then test connection thn hopefully this works for u m8 cheers arsenal_07
