Connecting on line - IP address

Please help : i have a new ps3 which i am trying to connect on line and struggling big time. i have sky broadband, when in setting i do a scan and am able to find my sky broadband and enter my key password. i follow the instructions and test connection but the test is unable to find an IP address and times out, do i enter this manually or should the ps3 find this automatically? if i am to enter this manually where do i find it?

    ok, I just looked through a few documents on Sky Broadband and I'm assuming you are using the supplied wireless router/modem that, either the Netgear DG934G-1SUKUKS or the Sagem F@st 2504. Which one do you have?

    You may also have the Netgear DG834GT which was supplied before November 2007.

    The latter router has had many problems with the stock firmware that Sky supplies - I would recommend flashing it to the official Netgear firmware or a third-party firmware like UberGT.

    If you do this, back up the ROM on the router so the settings are correct when you re-flash!!!

    What wireless security mode are you using? WPA or WPA2? If you are using WEP, make sure you are putting the key in Hexadecimal form, not your passphrase.

    Turn off the firewall within the router - it blocks incoming traffic on games.

From the sounds of it your using a wireless connection? when you use the auto connect and it fails what does it say in the connection status in internet options? what is your signal strength? mine wouldnt work if it was less than 90%. i sorted this by moving my wireless box to the top hall so connection is 100% and i have no problems. please feel free to ask any questions.

My ps3 says the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out every time i try to connect to the internet


macmall816

If you are getting the obtain ip address message but it is timing out this means that you are not getting a good connection to your network.

Let me know how you are connecting to the internet. Like are you connecting the modem to a router then connecting the PS3 to it via a wired or wireless connection. Also let me know the make and model of you devices in your network.

This info will help me see what is going on

It works on your mates network or your mates ps3 works on your network?
If I understand you correctly then there is some issue with your router so I would go through it's settings make sure mac address filtering isn't turned on and change the wireless settings to see if there's some issue with the current setup.

DNS error


you can get the dns setting by connecting a computor to the broadband the steps are
  1. goto 'start'
  2. goto 'run'
  3. type 'cmd.exe'
  4. in the commmand prompt type 'ipconfig' , it gives all the details about your broadband.
DNS error generaly means that there is nothing wrong with your system but ther must be a problem with your internet provider..

Ps3 wont join 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.
