    Also be sure that your settings are set to "wired" and not "wireless".

    Once set, go through the auto settings and see if that helps.

I try 2 plug my modem up 2 my ps3 but the ip address timed out wat do i do


After you have the Ethernet cable from your modem plugged into your PS3 press and hold the reset button on the back of the modem for about 5-10 seconds. This will reset the modem so that it will recognize the connect to your PS3. Once your done using your PS3 and reconnect the Ethernet cable back to your computer you will have to reset the modem again. Any time you move the Ethernet cable from one device to another you need to reset it after you have the cable connected to what ever device you want to get online with at that time. If you do not want to keep resetting your modem all the time a router will allow for you to have more then one device online at a time. The router will connect to your modem and then your devices will connect to your router.

You'll need to unhook your Ethernet cable from the back of your computer and connect it to the PS3.Or to still be able to use your computer while he's online with the PS3 (good luck with that one) you will need to get a router and another Ethernet cord.It will split the signal between the two and allow them to be used at the same time.Pages 24 thru 30 (PS3 manual)explain how to do the connections with the Ethernet cord or wirelessly if you have wifi.Good luck!

Ps3 ethernet


The easiest way would be to disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the PS3. The PS3 doesn't care if it shares a cable as it really only meeds one when you want to be online. There is no setting for the "cable" all you do is unplug from the back of your computer and then plug it into the PS3; reverse when you are finished playing.

I hope this answers your question.

Can it be done?


All of the ps3 models support wired and wireless internet. All you need is high speed internet service, and a router (wireless router if you want wireless internet o.~) you plug the router into your high speed modem via ethernet cable. then you plug your computer and ps3 into the router with ethernet cables. your good to go! if you want wireless for your ps3 you need to use the wireless setup on the ps3. your done :)

Hope this helps.

Ps3 wired connection prob.


I can't be certain, but does your ISP rewuire the hardware connecting to it to have a certain MAC address (i.e. the one used to first 'activate' the Internet connection)? If so you may need to 'clone' the MAC address to get online either by a router or some other method.
