To access the internet from a home broadband network you need the router appropriately configured on the WAN or internet service provider (ISP) side and the attached computer to have an appropriate IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS addresses assigned to the network adapter.

Based solely on the title you should understand the following the belief here is that the PS3 is missing DNS address(es).

DNS address(es) are IP address(es) for servers that convert names like www.fixya.com into IP addresses to send messages to normally.

Your ISP generally assigns DNS addresses for your use.

How do DNS addresses get into the computer's network adapter configuration where they are needed? There are two ways generally in home networks someone manually puts them into the computer or someone enters them into the router and via a service called DHCP they get placed in computer's network adapters configured to accept information from the DHCP service on the router.

If the heading of this problem is correct the PS3 appears to be complaining because the DNS address(es) have not been configured into the computer or the router by the user as expected by the PS3's network adapter. I have no PS3 experience however I believe this information may help to resolve your issue.

I hope this helps

I have tried for days to get it to connect to my wifi conection it finds it with strong signal but wont let me use the internet what am i doing wrong please help


hi

type ipconfig/all
hit enter

You need to have a different IP address than he has, so if his is 192.168.1.11, pick the last number and add 100 to it to be safe, so yours would be 192.168.1.111 (just an example)

Your netmask will be the same as his, 255.255.255.0
your gateway will be the same as his

You also need to have the DNS servers that are listed, there should be 2 of them, write both of them down.

So, on your sheet of paper, you will have a unique IP address, the same netmask and gateway, and 2 dns servers.

Go to your PC, start, control panel, network connections, right click on Wireless Network Connection, then select properties, On the general tab screen, Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click properties,

Then enter your unique IP address, netmask, gateway, and both dns servers. Click ok, then ok again.

Then on your notebook/pc, click on start, run, type cmd, hit enter
type 'ipconfig/all'
hit enter, your info should match your neighbors except for the IP address
type 'ipconfig/flushdns'
hit enter
type 'exit'

now try to get online with internet explorer, you should be successful, if your not, post back on here with your results and I'll get back to you.

Connection issues


To troubleshoot the issue follow the below steps

1.Try disbaling and enabling the wireless lan card

2.Check whether Ip addresses assigned in the wireless network card.If the address is assigned by dhcp and not assigned in network card means assign static ip in the range supported in the networkand ping the website or gateway.

3.If the ip is assigned already means try pinging the gateway and dns server .If ping is success means the connection between router and pc and internet is good .In that case you have to check whether authentication is successful if any authentication is used.

Troubles connecting WRT160Nv3 Linksys router to Wii


I am thinking the router was set to get it's IP from the modem and when you changed the IP after the power failure, is when you problems started. I suggest looking at your networks IP addresses. I think they are not on the same subnet.
My first step would be to record the settings and do a hard reset on the router, then proceed to reinstall the settings and make sure your network is on the same subnet.

how many lights does your modem have and how many do you see lighting? if you have only 2 lighting..you may want to contact your internet service provider and get them to reset your connection.

try using your ethernet cable... when you plug your cable to the back of your computer and to the modem... do you see lights blinking at both ends when both devices are on.. if not.. try replacing the cable for a known good cable. make sure all your cable as properly secured.

check if your internet connection settings are ready to receive an ip addres:
go to start>control pannel>network connections.. hight light local network connection (your network adapter) and right click and select properties... then in the general tab scroll down untill you see Internet protocol (TCP/IP) click on it and the click on the properties botton. in the general tab of properties.. make sure you have selected "Obtain an IP address Automatically" and down below "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

if everthing looks ok.. try to repair you connection by going to start>control pannel>network connections.. hight light local network connection (your network adapter) and right click and select enable (if disabled) or repair.

D-Link Router & Actiontec Modem


Hi,

connect the Dlink router to the modem ActionTech->( wan port )Dlink. Login to the Router web-interface and go to STATUS & check the WAN IP address which would be modem ip address. if there is an ip address, do ping test on your computer to that ip address and see you are getting successful ping results. If so, the ping yahoo.com and see there is an successful ping for yahoo.
- If there is No WAN IP in STATUS Page, Connect the computer directly to the modem and let me know the ip address you are getting. Can I know your ISP name please?
