An IP address is an Internet Protocol address. Essentially it's like your mailing address, but for the Internet. It's a unique address that identifies a specific Internet connection (not necessarily a particular machine, however).

For online gaming, your IP address is how the online part of the game can talk to your individual game console.
Having an IP address requires having an Internet connection. Normally if you have a broadband connection, your IP address is assigned to your cable or DSL modem, which may then assign a private internal IP address to its clients (your PC, your game console, etc).

Depending on your game console and how it communicates with the Internet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_address

Some additional information would be good...

  • What kind of connection to the Internet do you have?
    Cable, DSL, something else?
  • What game console do you have?
  • How does your PC connect to the Internet? Is there a box it is connected to, or does it use wireless?

My nintendo don't have internet


Nintendo Dsi/DS/Ds XL connects to the internet using wireless connection. You need to know the settings of your router. I've listed below the steps on how you will access the router and to obtain the information needed for you to be connected.


How to access the Router:

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x)

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and theNetwork Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remeber the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Now that we already know the setting of the router then its now time to connect the Dsi to the network.

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection.

I added the IPaddress to the xbox and xbox online will not work


Hi there, you dont need to disconnect anythink they will all link together,

If you can link the xbox and Router with a eithernet cable, this way its alot faster.

if your using wireless then you have to pair the router with the xbox.

hope this helps

Ps3 keeps on saying ip timed out


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.
