Unable to connect PS3 to my Secured WIreless Router

Hello, I am trying to connect the PS3 to my home wireless, it keeps giving me - Failed to Obtain IP address.

I have enabled DMZ ip on my router page, I have also manually enabled Port Triggering Undee Gaming on my router, below is what I have given.

ports I inputted on my Wireless router are - 80, 443, 10070-1008- & 3479

Whether it is secured or unsecured, it just wont connect.
Does anyone know if there are specific Ports that need to be allowed for PS3 to connect to Internet?

thanks for the help

    The Dave Taylor link was not useful. There are all kinds of posts with problems, no solution. Also the screenshots are older versions, and not PS3.

    Has anyone successfully connected PS3 to a secured WEP wireless LINKSYS router? The default steps wont work



    thanks for all the help

I have an edimax BR6204wg wireless router. Whenever I have tried connecting wireless divices such as PS3, Nintendo DS and now my HTC smartphone they all find the Wireless network (SSID) but have trouble...


Hi sj_harley,

Welcome to Fixya. You can check the settings of the router so that we can configure your device wirelessly. There are some important information that we need to obtain inside the router that we wil be using to connect your device. The SSID or Network Name, Security: WPA,WEP,WPA2 and Open and lastly the Network Key or Passphrase.

Lets access the router:

- To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default username is admin and the password is 1234.

- Go to the Wireless, Make sure that the Wireless Module Function is Enable.

- ESSID is your Network Name (you can personalize it).

- Go to Advanced Settings, Authenticantion Type: Open (Unsecured) Shared (Secured).

- Go to Security, Select WEP or WPA then type your Password or Network Key

- Click on Apply to save the settings.

Now that we have the information needed lest configure your devices. Listed below is the guide on how to connect PS3 and DS wirelessly.

Ps3 Guide:

Steps on Connecting PS3

1. Power-cycle ALL network equipment. Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network equipment, including any Wireless Access Points, Routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) Modems, and Broadband Modems for two (2) full minutes.

2. Confirm that your internet connection is enabled. in the home menu, go to Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection and select Enabled.

3. Scroll down to Internet Connection Settings and When prompted, "Do you want to continue?" select Yes. On the next screen, select Wireless as your connection method. Pick "Scan"

4. From the list, pick your SSID.

5.On the next screen, press right on the directional pad to continue

6. Pick your WLAN Security Setting (either WEP or WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). If none, pick None (and skip the next step).

7. If you selected a Security Setting, enter your Security Key or Network Key with the keyboard. Press the Start button to exit the onscreen keyboard. Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.

8. The system will check your network configuration settings and display the information. Save the Settings.

9. Test the connection on the next screen.

10. When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed"). If you have successfully connected to your network, Congratulations, you have completed the network setup process.


DS Guide:

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection


Thanks for using Fixya.

Can I connect my ps3 to the internet using a secured connection from my neighbor with no router?


If you mean, can you use your neighbor's wireless with your PS3, then yes. Potentially. First, you'll want to have the permission of your neighbor, for legal reasons. Not to mention if their wireless is Secured, your going to need their assistance in connecting the PS3 to that router. If you have their blessing, then just follow the steps on the PS3 to set up a connection, and have your neighbor in the room or on the phone to give you the information when you need it.

If your trying to get access without them knowing, don't bother. If the connection is secure, your gonna waste a lot of time for nothing.

Unable to get wireless access to internet on ps3, keep getting a connection error DNS 80710102 or 800100A, can you advise how to resolve?


Try to disable the security key of your wireless router in the meantime and try to connect your PS3 without the security turned on. If it connects, what you have to do next is to reset or generate a new security key on the wireless router and setup the PS3 - wireless network connections with the new security key.

Ps3 help


the ps3 has a built in wireless modem. if you do not have a router, you might not be able to connect your ps3 and laptop at the same time.

turn everything off.

now in this order, turn on your ps3 and connect to your wireless verizon modem after it comes back on. do not turn your laptop on, since your modem probably will not give out two dynamic addresses. does the ps3 work now?

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?


You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs


look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).

Nat settings on netgear wgr614 wireless router


Hello --

Most NAT settings can be found, on modern routers, under the WAN setup of the router interface. Normally, it is set to Secured with the option of setting it to Open. Click Open and apply changes, giving the router a moment to reset the software and re-broadcast transmissions.

This comes secured for public consumption because the normal consumer would not create a WAN (wide access network) at home. However, gaming consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) require this because of the P2P hosting that most online multiple-player games require. Setting it to Open full-duplexes the transmissions without restriction (since gaming console connections are "supposed" to be secure anyway).

After you've set the NAT settings, restart the gaming console, test the 'net connection and confirm it is reading your now Open NAT settings.
