Problems finding online games with ps3 using BWA711 wirelessly

Does anyone know how I can configure my router to let my ps3 find online games? I recently got Call of Duty 4 and my ps3 found the internet wirelessly. I can connect to the web browser and chat with friends on the ps3 but when I enter Call of Duty and search for online games, it does not find the Call of Duty server.. Does anyone know what the problem is?

    We have the same problem... When we try to enter a Call of Duty 4 online game it takes a while before it says "this game is unavailable" when in actually it really is... because when we connect directly to the main ethernet connection on the wall it lets us enter the games... but when we try on the router it does... Whats the Deal... we hav a DyNEX Router

    I have the exact same problem and apparently nobody on earth knows how to solve trhe problem. I called the company that made the router, asked Activision and Sony and have not received answers. Please help me!

    Had a similiar problem, assign your PS3 a static IP address and put that IP address in the DMZ of your router. This opens all ports/ the entire internet to your PS3 without blockers/ firewalls etc. from your router. (same as direct connection to modem).

    Or search which ports to open in your router for COD.

    Also note that COD game servers have many issues as well try another game also.

    Reboot your system/ network.



    Give your PS3 a static IP address from your routers offernings.



    Put the PS3 IP in the DMZ of your router (open to the net, no firewall/ blockers).



    Try other games also COD/ Activision's gaming servers (Demonware) is known to have many problems.



    I have two PS3's and have to turn one on first in order or one will be unable to get past downloading game settings from COD4 or COD5.

Can connect to internet, but not playstation network to play call of duty online. no problem with streaming netflix. just get error code when needing to sign into the playstation network.


That is most probably result of server host not working anymore, check Call of duty (for example 4, black ops....etc) _____(Platform, PS2,PS3,XBox,...) online status. If they are not working, for that time you wont be able to play it. As far as you have explained you have configured your console online, so its not problem with you :) Good luck my friend! :)) Thx for asking me.

And please rate my solution! :) Thx in advance .Alex

Hi! recently joined playstation network. completed sign in etc. can browse online too. but when i wish to play online it gets stuck 'connecting to matchmaking server' etc


Hi,

can you go to network settings in your ps3 then test internet connection. If it says UPNP unavailable then you need to enable it in your router or upgrade router firmware if router shows UPNP as enabled.

Thanks.

It could be your router or network settings for your internet. Do you use Port forwarding? The Playstation site tells you all the ports you need to use. Also try putting your playstation in a DMZ.

When playing a game connected to the internet the game will play for a few minutes and then goes completely black


1)is your ps3 overheating?
2) is anyone else using the network your conected to?
3) are all your network cables conected and un-frayed,cut,pinched
4)dose your router go into a colisian state when you get the black screen?
5) dose it only happen in this online game or all online games
6)dose it happen every time you play this game or only some times?
6)are you trying to hack the game?
what port forwarding do you have configured for the conection to your ps3?
if none learn how to configure it to limit redundant broadcast that may be causing this problem.
try turning unplugging all systems from your router except the ps3

if you are conected directly to a broadband conection you might want to get a router so you can filter the trafic that reaches your ps3
hackers/cheaters are malicious and will stop at nothing to get the thrill of winning ,first learn how to do it ,then you can know how to stop it from being done to you ,or at least level the playing field at the cost of self respect

Ps3


Hi mon3ymik3,

1. First of all, connect your routers Internet/WAN port to your cable/DSL modem.
2. Configure your router with the settings your Internet Service Provider gave you. The router usually needs to be configured via either a install disc or it's internal webpage. Look up it's default IP and type it into your browser after: http://

(If you don't know them, call their tech. support).

3. Make sure the internet connection works.

4. Look up the settings for a DHCP server and make sure it's on. This will give all the devices connected to the router an IP address within the range or scope you set in there.

5. Connect your PS3 to one of the other ports of the router.

6. Go to your PS3's network settings, make a new connection and set everything to Automatic. Your PS3 will "ask" your router for it's settings.

7. Run a connection test.

8. If test succeeded you should be on your way.

P.S. If you need help configuring your router I will need more information about it. It's brand, it's type etc.

Tell me if it worked.

Greetings,

PS3 internet problem


Hi, best way to connect the PS3 is to buy a router, wireless or wired router. and if you go for a wired one, connect the ethernet cable (RJ45) from the PS3 to the Router,

Other option is plug ethernet cable into PS3 & other end into the Network card which will be built into the base unit, otherwise you can buy a ethernet card which should cost you about £10.
but you will need the PC switch on, whenever you want to use the PS3, as well as you will have to configure the network setting to get it working,,

Have a good new year
