Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I've been running a simple setup for over a year with no problems. One computer and my ps3 and cable modem plugged into a hub (switch)using windows media player for media sharing. I wake up one day andfind that my ps3 is unable to go online. I reset my cable modem and huband the problem is solved for a few days then it happens again. Thistime I can't get my ps3 to obtain an IP address no matter what I try,so I phone my ISP (Shaw). They offer no answers whatsoever but theymake an IP address available and my PS3 grabs it and goes back online.Unfortunately, I can no longer get windows media player to detect myPS3. I can see the media server with my PS3 but I can't allow itaccess. UPnP is enabled on my computer and it isn't the firewall.
The IP address shaw gave me is 18.104.22.168 andwhen everything is online with the cable modem the subnet mask is255.255.252.0. Upnp is always unavailable when I use this IP and subnetmask. When I disconnect the cable modem and reset the hub, my subnetmask changes to 255.255.0.0, my ps3's IP changes to one for privatenetworks only, and Upnp becomes available. I can then use windowsmedia sharing with no problems.
I really hope someone can give me a hand here. This has been driving me nuts and shaw has been no help at all.

maybe the modem set is different from the modem in the lap top in other words maybe you ps3 needs higher and better connection
