Hi,

Here is the solution for your issue,

Type 192.168.1.1 as the URL and then press enter.
user name: leave blank
password: admin

once you get on the router's page, look for applications and gaming then click on it.
Find the DMZ tab after you clicked on applications and gaming.
Enable the DMZ and type in random 3 ip numbers.
Better put in 110 to make things easier so just put in 110 then save settings(DMZ will be your IP address)

On your computer:

click START->RUN, type in command or cmd then press enter.
You should see a black screen come up.
Type in ipconfig/all and then you will see a list with bunch of numbers.

Now go on your ps3 and set the IP manually under custom.
so just put this in

IP Address: 192.168.1.110 (As you specified in DMZ)
Subnet Mask:
already set for you
Default Router: 192.168.1.1
Primary and Secondary DNS: look on that black screen with a list on it for the DNS. most likely its going to be 167.206.254.1 and 167.206.254.2 if you were using BT, else other

once you got all of the numbers in, just run through rest of the connection settings, dont touch anything, just go right through then save settings

Now should be able to go online

Please leave me comment, if you need furthur assistance

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

Can't stay connected


Might I suggest checking out this site, http://www.ps3chat.com/playstation-3-online/1351-routers-ps3.html . I think that the Linksys router is having issues keeping the connection alive on your PS3. You should also consider setting a static IP.

.trouble with playstation 3 getting on line through router...


It looks like there are a lot of DNS servers that do not work correctly with the PS3. Below I will list a few DNS servers that do seem to work and you will need to manually configure the DNS settings for your PS3 to any of these addresses.

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

129.250.35.250
129.250.35.251
4.2.2.1
4.2.2.5

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Hello,

Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,

Unstable connection. if you have wireless connection that could be a problem depending on your environment. Try turning off your firewall too by calling your internet server(Comcast,DSL,etc.)

No internet connection


You didn't specify if you're using DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
