Re: connection error

Something is wrong with the Encryption and or Security key setting for the connection. You need to match the Routers Security key. Go to your Routers setup page to find out the exact settings. Setup a new connection with the known Security settings. It should establish a IP address then.

My ps3 says the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out every time i try to connect to the internet


If you are getting the obtain ip address message but it is timing out this means that you are not getting a good connection to your network.

Let me know how you are connecting to the internet. Like are you connecting the modem to a router then connecting the PS3 to it via a wired or wireless connection. Also let me know the make and model of you devices in your network.

This info will help me see what is going on

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 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

Psp error

do your memory and sound work,moe3 and rosspeters?
if not,its a problem with the memory/sound/wifi circuit board.
if they work,it may be your antenna that is malfunctioning.
you probably will need to replace those,so be prepared to spend around $20.
