SOURCE: PS3 will not obtain IP address

Perhaps resetting the router will solve your problem. Have you tried that?

SOURCE: trouble obtaining ip address

When you put the IP address in you also have to add your DNS settings. easiest way to find your DNS server address is to use an XP based machine and type "ipconfig /all" it will list all of the properties of your computers network card. thake those DNS address' and plug them into your PS3.

Tried connecting my ps3 with the wi fi . It obtains ip address successful but fails to connect to the internet . It says dns error 80710102.


Go to the PS3 Network Setup, choose "Manual".
Leave the option for DHCP under "automatic", and under DNS servers, manually add:

208.67.222.222 or/and
208.67.220.220


These are the IP addresses for the Open DNS project and now your PS3 will be able to resolve internet addresses.

My ps3 says time up on obtaining ip address


Hi,
Make sure you are trying to access the right WEP type. I'm using a WPA2, should give you the option

Make sure in the settings and connection list that your address settings are set to automatic. I found that manually setting my internet connection settings so I could put the UPnP as disabled helped me.

or just type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into your web browser and your login for your router will pop up from there you can turn off your wep so it doesn't need a pass.

Thanks.

My ps3 keeps saying it can't obtain my ip address. Why is that? and how do i solve this problem


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.

Ip address wont work on ps3 anymore


It is likely your internet connection is not working properly.

Unplug your modem, router, PC, and power down your PS3.

Plug in your Modem.
Wait for it to run it's full diagnostics.

Plug in your router and let it do the same.

Power on your computer and let it obtain an IP address.

Then re-try your PS3.

When the TCP/IP is set to dynamic or "Obtain Automatically", the default gateway is supposed to blank. The default gateway address of your network is actually the router's IP address.

What is the IP address that you get when you performed step 3?

Cant get internet connection on my ps


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 168.126.63.1 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

Connecting to the Internet


Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins. Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.
