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.
Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.
The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.
Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.
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.
OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router http://192.168.1.1
.. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the
"wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the
security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet
wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working
through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and
for that you a computer connected to the router...
As for your IP address simple use this site http://www.ip-adress.com/ should be everything you need
On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings". then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes". go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan". If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point. Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one). select "automatic" for everything. select "Test Connection". the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded". If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.
Im having the same problem....It keeps saying that cannot find IP address...I have read that, it could be that im using bell sympatico and its DSL. Supposibly you need PPPoE.....How do I find that?
First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings
Windows XP 1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections 2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath 3. Click Support 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Windows Vista 1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center 2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
