Have you set up your lynksys to allow wireless QoS? If not go to your lynksys broadband wireless software. If you don't know how enter 192.168.1.1 into your explorer bar, log in with lynksys, default is top line blank password 'admin', go to Applications and Gaming tab and enable Wireless QoS, you'll also see all of the places to establish and open ports for specific applications.

Ps3 key change timeout using westell 6100 modem on verizon


there might be a problem with the Linksys router, the Westell 6100 should be 1st set to bridge mode in order for your router to be connected to it. or there could also be a proble on the Verizon server.

PS3: i can obtain ip adress but fail to connect to internet.


I would suggest that first you stop using the first modem. Then plug your computer into the modem and install using the comcast cd that came with your welcome package. If that doesn't work please tell me.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Hello,

Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,

Sounds like a problem with the firmware in your router. Connect
your laptop directly to one of the four ports with a cat 5 cable. Turn of your wireless adapter and connect through the cable.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a pop up box which asks you to enter a user name and password. The default user name is admin and the default password is admin or password. From there You will be all the settings you can control. You are looking for the one to go on line and download the current firmware update. This will most likely solve your problem. If your router was working fine before do not tamper with any of the other options. If this does not clear up your problem you will probably need a new router. You can also try Pushing the tiny reset button on the back and running the setup disk that came with your router. If this fails you definitely need a new router.
I hope this helps you. If you need more help feel free to contact me.

PS3 can't obtain IP address through LAN switch


wonderful! that's always a good thing to hear - sometimes it is the "make sure you're power cord is plugged in" problem, eh :)
