    Just bought a PS3 and I cant seem to get an IP adress and get hooked up online. Even though I have a router and my PC works through the router but my PS3 will not go online. I tried connecting my PS 3 directly to the internet It keeps saying "Cannot Obtain IP adress"...Whats the deal?



    I have faith in the Sony Playstation Console but the XBOX 360 is getting more appealing. I might ditch PS3 and go get the XBOX..



    Can someone in CYBERLAND help us with this annoying problem

When you connect your ps3 with a ethernet cord you need to restart your ps3 when its connected. If its wireless you may need to check your router settings.

you need to bridge, yes
the other thing you need to do, is right click on the internet connection and say "Allow other computers to connect to the internet via this connection"
this should allow the ps3 to grab an IP address via DHCP

How do I connect my ps3 to the internet and tv so as to view the net on tv?


It's a semi-long process. Do you have a wireless router hooked up to your computer? If so just go to settings then network settings in your ps3 menu. If you have the wireless router then put wireless connection and its straight forward from there. If it is a wired connection and hooked to your ps3 than put wired connection and again its straight forward from there.

Router Won't connect to internet


The cable modem sometimes register the hardware MAC address of the connected device. So your PC may be registered and it won't accept the router now. Connect the WAN port of the router to your cable modem and power the modem off and on again. It should re-register the connected device and now your router should work.

Can't go online with a ps3 by hooking it up to a laptop. I've hooked up an ether net cable to the back of a laptop that has a built in wi-fi connection but my ps3 will not hook up to the internet please...


ok, first, check your laptop to see if it is connected to the internet. If not, create a connection (go to control panel, then network connections, follow steps) then, go on your ps3 and go to settings, scroll down to network connections, then press x on internet connection settings, pess ok, choose easy, etc. as long as your pc has a connection to the internet, and you have high-speed internet (not dial-up), you will be able to go online.

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

My ps3 keeps saying it can't obtain my ip address. Why is that? and how do i solve this problem


this is because when you hook up a internet cable to the ps3. its searchign for a connection.
You may be behind a firewall or router. you probably need your router password put in if you are indeed using a router. Otherwise if your not hooked up to the internet you have no need to go to "Network" in the consoles homepage.

IP address is your personal connection address on the internet. Assigned by the company you rent it from for you Home internet connection.

Hope this helps.

I hear Resistance 2 for ps3 is gonna be amazing Have Fun!

Ip and proxy error


well, if you know how to setup the ip addresses manually both on your modem / router and on the ps3 i recommend you do that... but bear in mind that your dhcp server (on your modem / router) should prohibit automatic assignment of that same ip address with your ps3... for that you have to specify a range of automatically assignable ip addresses apart from your ps3...

if you have the dmz (demilitarized zone) option on your modem / router, set it up for the ip address of your ps3, which you've setup manually...

example:

router ip: 192.168.2.1
ps3 ip: 192.168.2.10
ip address pool: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.250 (this shpould be manually setup not to interfere with the fixed ip address of the ps3)
dmz host: 192.168.2.10 (ip address of the ps3, which enables "opens" all of the ports for this ip address)

apart from that if you use any proxy servers to connect to the net, you have to specify these in ps3 settings as well...

there are a lot of threads on various forums on how to tweak your network connection to optimize for ps3...

i hope this solves your problem...

PS3 connection error


Are you connecting through a router?. If so set all of your PS3 settings to easy. If your trying to connect directly to a dsl or cable modem, you might not get connectivity but may get an ip address, as some providers require that you register your MAC address with them to connect a particular device. If you have a router...say a wired one, and you connect any PC through it and get internet, you should be able to hook up the PS3 and put it on easy automatic settings for the connection and it should connect. However, if the router is set for a static ip address (no dhcp), it wont hand out all of the information to the Ps3.
