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?

First check ipaddress Click Start -run- type cmd hit enter for XP or Start -search-type cmd hit enter in Vista. On the DOS black screen after the blinking cursor type ipconfig hit enter check the ipaddress if are getting ipaddress other than (169........) it is proper ipaddress for e.g 147.14.48.478
Ping the default gateway e.g ping 147.11.445.478 if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss zero is with Internet explorer or operating system.
If unable to ping or getting 169..... ipaddress . you are having static ip address
On the black screen at the blinking cursor type ipconfig /release hit enter
then type ipconfig /renew hit enter .check ip address
Ping default gateway then ping www.google.com if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss 0. Try connect to internet using internet explorer or other browser. if still unable to connect then issue with firewall or antivirus or IE corruption .
Create new administrative account in XP and do MSconfig .Restart the system and logon to new account and try connecting to internet.
If issue persist might have to repair IE or operating system as it is software issue or virus issue.
You can connect a different computer if you have one and check internet.
If unable to get any ipaddress or still getting static ip address ,reset modem or check ethernet cable ,do a hard reset on the internet modem.Shutdown and restart computer and check ipaddress then try connecting to internet. Good luck.

Can't connect to the internet after running Rescue and Recovery


It seems you have a static ip address. Check the ipaddress by clicking - start -run - type cmd hit enter. on the black screen - type ipconfig and enter. If the ipaddress shows ipaddress e.g 169.10.14.12 . its is static ipadress. Do ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew.If u are getting new ipaddress. Ping www.google.com and check if you are able to ping. You should be able to connect to internet. If not then reset the Internet router if you have one or shut down the computer.Disconnect internet cable .If u have modem,turn it off.Wait for 10 second. Connect internet cable.Restart the system and check. If issue persist contact ISP. Good luck.

Cannot scan items to an ipaddress


There could be a number of things causing this, including port blocking at your server level - check with your IT professional.

It would help to know how you're trying to scan (i.e. scan to e-mail, scan to FTP, scan to desktop), if the C351 has an EFI (Fiery) print server incorporated and how it's set up for scan interfacing with the copier. There's so many variables, it would be very difficult to pinpoint any one solution without knowing just how the copier and your network are set up.

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.
