PS3-can't find IP address

Hello, problem with getting the PS3 to find IP. We have a Linksys WRT330N router. I use MAC addresses and would like to use WPA-SPK security. I've disabled the security on both the PS3 and Linksys, but that didn't help. I've also disabled my AVG firewall, still couldn't find it.

You need to assign an IP with PS3. Do you have the users manual for that item? and if not, what's the actual part number serial number of your PS3?

Cant find ip address on ps3


If you are directly wired to your modem (not router), you will have to reboot your modem each time you switch between computer and console. When the modem boots up, it leases an IP address to the MAC Address of the connected device. Each device has a unique MAC Address. If the MAC Address does not match to the one it leased an IP to, it won't allow access to the internet.

You can get past this by "cloning" the MAC Address of your computer to your console.

To get the MAC Address (Physical Address) of your computer:
XP: Open the start menu, click "run" and type "cmd" then hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.

Vista: Open the start menu, in the search bar type in "cmd" and hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.

Now get into the network configurations on your console, look for an option of MAC Address cloning. Input the MAC Address of your computer, save and reboot.

Hope this helps.

wonderful! that's always a good thing to hear - sometimes it is the "make sure you're power cord is plugged in" problem, eh :)
