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, :)
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.
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
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.
