SOURCE: connecting to the Internet

Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins. Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.

restore your default settings. check your security key and you shoudl be good to go. it's nothing with your ps3 and probably just something with yoru router. also try restoring the default settings and just connecting directly to your router or your modem with an ethernet cable

My playstation three will not connect to the internet even though i just purchased a new N gaming router thats covers the whole house, and my ps3 has lik e60 percent signal strength and will not sing me in...


Well 60% is not really strong honestly for the online gaming. My suggestions for you would be 1 get a cat 5 cable and run it hard wired. But if you would like to keep it wireless (or even wired for that matter) you also would want to do these steps. 1 Enter your router main menu usually in the internet search bar type 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 one of these should work for you. After you enter the Router main menu take a piece of paper and jot down some information, Main IP for your Router (the one you used to enter the main menu) DNS 1 and 2, and Default Gateway. Now you have this information Find out the DHCP range of your router usually somewhere around 192.168.2.100-.149 roughly. These are the automatic assigning IPs.. Now you have this information go to the Gaming and Accessories selection of your router. You want to go to the DMZ portion now. Ok now assign an IP outside the DHCP range in example give I would go 192.168.2.160 now that you have this typed into the DMZ write this one down as well, this is now what you want to assign to your PS3 as a static IP. OK now your ready for the PS3 side of things. PS3 main menu, settings menu, Network settings menu, Manual set up or Custom, when it will ask you for the above information Static Ip address, and the other info from before enter it exact.. Now once your done with all that do a test.. This should help out tremendously.. Happy Gaming.

I have a dns error that wont let me play on line it ends in 102 what do i do


Try to hardcode and use openDNS ip address. Are you using a gaming console? Or you are just playing an online game from your PC? Please post information so that troubleshooting will be much easier and faster.

I can't play online ps3 games


it could be what type of router are you using? Are you able to sign into the playstation network? You could try setting up a static ip address on your ps3 and setting it as a dmz server. This will open up all ports for your ps3 and should enable you to play games. It should be a workaround for upnp. If you tell me what router make and model your using i can tell you how to do this.

Can't get internet on ps3


Okay, i'll see if i know what we're talking about here. There are a couple of things you could try. For one, try logging into your router, (usually at 192.168.0.1 and looking in the Client or Address lists for a PS3, or whatever you have named it, and then see if you can either disconnect or renew it. Then, redo the whole WiFi setup on the PS3 setting all the settings as you would but leave the IP settings as they are (should be Auto). If that still doesn't work, go into the PS3's connection settings and manually set an IP address. My suggestion is to use the same address as an already connected (and working computer), but change the last number. Whatever you do, make sure there are not two of the same IP address on the router. Hope this helps...

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:
  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: http://www.routerlogin.com or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    I cant play games online


    You do not need a DMZ for ps3. jsut setup a SSID if wireless. Encrypt it (for your own saftly) and PS3 has wireless capablity. Just join the network with the SSID and WEP key and the PS3 will get an IP address. Also no port mapping is needed. Leave all port to auto open due to DHCP is going to get your PS3 a new ip every time you turn it on.
