Dmz is selected, static ip on both router and ps3 and still get disconnected

Hey syack
It would be easier if i had more details on the problem

DMZ and Static IP addressing are both ways to "port forward/trigger" so i take it this is what you're trying to achieve.

If the PS3 will not connect at all
  1. Verify the static ip is not being used and is correct to the subnet mask (for example: if the gateway's IP address is then the PS3 has to have a IP starting with 192.168.0 such as
  2. Verify all cables are working correctly "use them on different devices"
  3. Set the network back to how it was and try again
If the PS3 disconnects after time then it is nearly always down to the PS3's NIC or the cables connecting it to the network.

Hope this helps

Try unplugging the modem and router from the power source, wait 15-30 secs, and then turn back on. This often solves the IP issue.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,

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...


router ip:
ps3 ip:
ip address pool: - (this shpould be manually setup not to interfere with the fixed ip address of the ps3)
dmz host: (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...
