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

I have tried to set my playstation 3 online keeps asking for wep key what is this and were do i find it

Your PS3 is most likely trying to join a WiFi (Wireless) network. Sometimes WiFi networks have passwords to keep people out. The PS3 is asking for a WEP key because it is asking for the password so it can join that WiFi network and get online. Try to find your WEP key for your router. If it is not your router then you will be unable to join that network since it is secured.

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?

Internet Connection

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.

Your wireless settings have changed because you changed routers. Go into your router's configuration and setup your SSID and wireless security settings. Then reconfigure the wireless settings on your ps3 to match the settings you supplied on your router.

Don't just use a wireless router with its default settings out of the box. Your wireless network will be hacked in days. Refer to your router's manual for information on how to configure it.

Connection ps3 to internet without pc

Yes, if you have broadband you can get a wireless router/modem. This is a little box that you attach to the telephone line and gives you wireless access to the internet. You can use a wired router/modem if you don't wont wireless in your home.

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).
