I have wireless internet how do I get a ip address connect my ps3


The IP address is provided by the wireless router when you perform the connection process. You will need to locate your wireless network on the PS3, select it, and when prompted for the security key/code, enter it to gain a connection. Once the connection is established, the PS3 will have an IP address.

I get this error 80130182 when trying to sign in


Its down to a Router issue on your network

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the router. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1 Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe

Hello my son has jst got a PS3 and is looking at linking wirerless through home computer - unfortunately our PC has huge security code on it and trying to enter correctly into PS3 is impossible!! Is it...


Yes you can change the security code by going into your router settings. Depending on which router you have you will have to type an ip address into the web browser to acces the routers menu. Google your router and see what the ip address of it is and then google how to change the wireless key.

Hope this helps

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.
