Disconnect the LAN cable from the PS3.
The PS3 needs to be configured as follows :-
Select Network Settings - Easy - Wireless - Scan, select your wireless router, select your SSID, if it isn't displayed the type it in, select security settings, enter your router's encryption settings

Your router will issue an IP address to the PS3 and you will able to access the Internet wirelessly.

I have wireless internet how do I get a ip address connect my ps3


The IP address is provided by the wireless router when you perform the connection process. You will need to locate your wireless network on the PS3, select it, and when prompted for the security key/code, enter it to gain a connection. Once the connection is established, the PS3 will have an IP address.

Tip

PS3 and XBox Disconnecting network problems.


This tip helps those who connect through a router to use the PS3 or XBox online.
Whether you connect wired or wirelessly, you should get into your routers setup page from a computer, and make the DHCP always assign the same IP address to your PS3 or XBox. Then place that IP address into the DMZ of your router. Save your settings and voila! No more NAT conflicts.

My router was working fine with my iphone and ipad , now it will not connect and i still have a connection with my ps3


If you reset the router and have not turned off and back on all your devices you probably have conflicting addresses. some versions of ps3 will not connect for some reason unless they have the first ip available on the router.
Turn off your wirelss on your iphone and ipad, turn off the ps3. Reboot the router when it comes back up turn on the ps3 and get a good connection, the enable wireless on your ipad or iphone and get a connection the doe the same with the other.
This will avoid conflicting addresses.
An IP address has a 24 hour lease if you reboot a router it forgets what device had whipch ip address. If you need to reboot your router you need to refresh the ip address of all your devices to avoid conflicting ip's.
In this case I suspect you ipad and iphone are attempting to use the same ip address.

I have this router set up with a wired connection to a windows pc with windows 7 and using the wireless to connect a laptop and a ps3. when the wired pc is off the ps3 connects just fine, but when it is...


It sounds like you may have manually assigned the same static(constant) IP address to both the wired PC and the PS3. Check both the settings in the router, the PS3 and the wired PC to make sure that an IP address is assigned to both.

I can play any game online fine, but when it comes to fifa i send my friend an invite he accepts then nothing happens it just comes up this game session is no longer active, or when i do get a game it says...


You need to either give your PS3 a static IP address and then put that IP in DMZ in your router, or you need to open up the ports it tells you in the Fifa 09 manual.

 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PS3 Console) 

Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal Ip address. This means that everytime your PS3 connects or "talks" to your router, the router will assign it a different internal IP address. These IP addresses typically run in series. So for example, if your PS3 is the second device communicating with your router, then it will be assigned an ip address of 192.168.1.3. However, if you choose to use your PS3 without the computer being on, the assigned IP address your PS3 has will be 192.168.1.2. As this is different, and obviously will change, it would be stupid setting a DMZ up on one of the above Ip addresses, unless your PS3 was the only device that would ALWAYS connect using that specific IP. 

To make sure that your PS3 is always assigned the same internal IP address by your router, you will need to go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 Cross bar menus. 

You will be presented with an option which primarily asks whether you are using a Wired or Wireless connection. Obviously, you will choose the option which refers to you. If choosing the Wireless option you will need to input the security details in use on your router *If you are not currently using wireless security, i strongly reccommend you do so ASAP* 

Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected. 

This will display a page where customisable IP Addresses are available to be selected. 

IP Address - This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Personally, i use 192.168.1.100. I use this because it is extremely unlikely my Router will ever automatically assign this IP Address to a device, as i will never have 99 other devices connected to the same system. 

Subnet Mask - Is always set to 255.255.255.0 

Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router. 
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to 
Start 
Run 
cmd [Hit Enter] 
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway". 

Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

After entering all of these IP Addresses, you will now click "Enter" or hit the "right" button on the D-Pad. This will take you to a screen which says "MTU" at the top. My setup has this as Automatic, solely because i haven't a clue what MTU actually means or does.This won't affect your ability to set up a DMZ. 

The next steps are very simple. You do not want to use a proxy server unless you connect to the internet using one, however i can be of no help there, and you should enable UPnP if your router supports it. 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PC) 

Now head over to your PC, and load up your internet browser. In the Address Bar, type the IP Address of your router (the one you found using the Command Prompt earlier) 

This will take you to your Router Configuration Page. 

Every router interface differs from an other, and depending on what router firmware update you last installed, router interfaces can differ, even on the same model routers. This means that you will need to search the router config page yourself. You are looking for any mention of "DMZ" or "DMZ Host" 

When you have found this, it will ask you generally to input the IP Address of your DMZ Host, which is just the static IP address you assigned to your PS3 earlier, my example was 192.168.1.100, so we'll stick with that. Then click "apply" or similar. 

You should then turn off everything running on your home network. PS3, PC, Router etc. This is solely to make sure that the changes are applied as soon as possible. 

This should fix all of the problems as listed earlier in this guide, and probably some other issues

Cant connect ps3 wireless to dlink router


The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.

What kind of problems are you having? Once the router is connected to your modem and the router is configured and working properly you should be able to connect it to your PS3.
