I added the IPaddress to the xbox and xbox online will not work

Hi there, you dont need to disconnect anythink they will all link together,

If you can link the xbox and Router with a eithernet cable, this way its alot faster.

if your using wireless then you have to pair the router with the xbox.

hope this helps

Don't know what an ipaddress is

An IP address is an Internet Protocol address. Essentially it's like your mailing address, but for the Internet. It's a unique address that identifies a specific Internet connection (not necessarily a particular machine, however).

For online gaming, your IP address is how the online part of the game can talk to your individual game console.
Having an IP address requires having an Internet connection. Normally if you have a broadband connection, your IP address is assigned to your cable or DSL modem, which may then assign a private internal IP address to its clients (your PC, your game console, etc).

Depending on your game console and how it communicates with the Internet.

Some additional information would be good...
  • What kind of connection to the Internet do you have?
    Cable, DSL, something else?
  • What game console do you have?
  • How does your PC connect to the Internet? Is there a box it is connected to, or does it use wireless?

Ps3 keeps on saying ip timed out

your ip settings are most likely wrong, check your desktop pc settings

here is how

start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig

note, ipaddress, subnet, gateway

if your desktops ip is similiar to 192.168.1. 2 to 254
then set your ps3's ip as for example
just a number between 2 and 254 (the 1 is used by router) witch isnt used.

your address might show for example or a more complex ip like if this is the case set the ps3 on automatically get ipaddress and dns server.

if you need any help let me know. Good luck.

My PS3 has no NAT Type!!

there is something known as NAT strict that can happen due to many reasons , NAT or network address translator helps in converting the WAN ip address to LAN side IP address or public to private ipaddress . In a case of NAT strict or no NAT type ur PS3 or the router to which you have connected the PS3 is not able to convert the IP address...
Solution: try logging on to the router manager or PS3 settings and enable the NAT ( it would be in a disabled state or DMZ ( de militarized zone ) state )....
If the nat is already enabled Then try to manually configure NAT by opening the port numbers on the router manager or PS3. Port numbers can of UP or TCP protocol depending upon the games ur tyring to play....
If u donno how u do it then contact sony or the people who gave u the router or ur ISP
