Your ip settings are most likely wrong, check your desktop pc settings

here is how

start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig

note, ipaddress, subnet, gateway

if your desktops ip is similiar to 192.168.1. 2 to 254
then set your ps3's ip as 192.168.1.25 for example
just a number between 2 and 254 (the 1 is used by router) witch isnt used.

your address might show 10.0.1.20 for example or a more complex ip like 86.32.55.100 if this is the case set the ps3 on automatically get ipaddress and dns server.

if you need any help let me know. Good luck.

Connecting internet to the playstation 3


Before connecting the ethernet cable to the back of your Playstaion3 hold the modem reset button for 15 seconds, when 15 secs are up connect the ethernet cable to your ps3 system, wait until tour Comcast High Speed Internet goes online again (all the lights are showing fine) then try setting up your Playstation connection settings again, it might work since now you have reseted your modem and the modem will send information to new device, I hope this information works for you, :)

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)


Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .

Ps3 connection to the internet


Are you sure that you got the right Ip ? Otherwise I would try to shut down the system and put all cables out and in again. If that doesnt help I am sorry and
Good Luck!

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network

If you are using a router you may be blocked my the routers firewall. Double check that your IP address and settings are right.

Have you tried to find the settings automatically? Your router may be stopping the ps3 from access it to retrieve the information
