Can't connect my PS3 to a wired network. It times out trying to get the ip address but i entered the ip address and the dns servers manually but it won't connect. I've got it wired straight off the modem with the line i plug into my pc. It says the internet is available but won't pick up the ip address? I don't get it. Any ideas? Thanks

possible cause is that ps3 uses an ip address leased from the wi fi router via its DHCP Server in Router. If PS3 was off for a while another computer on Wi FI network may have been assigned the IP address that the PS3 thinks it has.
Try page 29 of
on page 31 change the ip address setting to manual
set ip to 192.168.0.254 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Now exit setup
Then go back into Setup
Change IP address setting to Auto
This will renew the ip address from the DHCP server to the ps3 hopefully allocating you a fresh IP address lease .
Have you tried manually adding a IP to your PS3 ie if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.254 set your PS3 to 192.168.1.60, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and set the gateway to the IP address of your router in this example it would be 192.168.1.254..
This is a common dns error with playstation. try entering the following in your ps3. Settings - Network Settings -
internet connection settings - custom - wired or wireless depending on
your internet - manual settings - IP address manual - enter your ip
address and your router address and change your dns primary
If you are directly wired to your modem (not router), you will have to reboot your modem each time you switch between computer and console. When the modem boots up, it leases an IP address to the MAC Address of the connected device. Each device has a unique MAC Address. If the MAC Address does not match to the one it leased an IP to, it won't allow access to the internet.
You can get past this by "cloning" the MAC Address of your computer to your console.
To get the MAC Address (Physical Address) of your computer: XP: Open the start menu, click "run" and type "cmd" then hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.
Vista: Open the start menu, in the search bar type in "cmd" and hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in
"inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical
address". That is your MAC Address.
Now get into the network configurations on your console, look for an option of MAC Address cloning. Input the MAC Address of your computer, save and reboot.
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..
Easy Pie! This is a cinch anda guarantee work through. It involves putting your PS3 into a DMZ (demilitarized zone) which simply means opening all of the ports on it.
If you have the following problems, this is likely to fix it.
Not being able to join rooms
Not being able to speak over your headset
Not being able to hear other people over their headset
Not being able to join private games
Any problems to do with connectivity to the PSN, especially if your computer will connect to the internet, but your PS3 won't.
Part 1-(On PS3)
Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal IP address. Normally whenever a device connects to your router it will be assigned a different internal IP address. These are normally 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and so on. Assigning a static one will ensure that your PS3 will get the same one every time it connects.
Go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 XMB. Choose whether you are using wireless or wired.
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 customizable IP Addresses are available to be entered.
IP Address- This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Use 192.168.1.80, simply because it is unlikely that 80 other devices will be connected at the same time.
Subnet Mask - 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
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"
Proxy � When you get to the proxy screen, select "Do not use Proxy"
MTU � Automatic
UPnP � Enabled
Part 2-(On PC)
In your Internet Browser, type the address of your default gateway, this will take you to your Router Configuration Page. Look for any mention of DMZ
When you have found this, it will ask you for the Static IP of the DMZ host. This is simply the Internal IP that you assigned your PS3. We used 192.168.1.80.
Finally, turn off your Router, PC and PS3 for a few minutes to ensure that the new settings are loaded. Then you're ready to go!
dns error, try entering the following in your ps3. Settings - Network Settings - internet connection settings - custom - wired or wireless depending on your internet - manual settings - IP address manual - enter your ip address and your router address and change your dns primary 126.96.36.199 and secondry 188.8.131.52 this will enable you to go online as for the error code 80710092 i have no idea, im experiancing the same problem. its so frustrating. as soon as i find the answer i will let you know.
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
i had a simsilar problem with my nintendo wii. i also have a mac and broadband ( but that doesn't matter). if you get into your wireless router by going to 192.168.1.254 in your safari browser. go to "wireless" settings. there is a channel selection (1-7) change it to 1. that should work. if not change to 2 etc.
