Change some of the settings in your router's web based settings page so that the DHCP server time out request is set to either auto or something like that.

If your ip timed out go into your modem in the browser bar on your computer type the address for it it should be three unmbers then . then three more . then one then. the three more as ollows 000.000.0.000 this should bring up your page for the modem user and password should be admin then go to expert mode or settings then go into LAN settings find wireless connection and change wep to none or no privacy if a yellow triangle pops up in right corner click it and save if not then find the save link then rest your modem and rests psp to factory and start connection over with out wep this should do it.

SOURCE: trouble obtaining ip address

When you put the IP address in you also have to add your DNS settings. easiest way to find your DNS server address is to use an XP based machine and type "ipconfig /all" it will list all of the properties of your computers network card. thake those DNS address' and plug them into your PS3.

Try resetting your modem and router. wait 15 seconds then plug modem in then the router. Then plug your system back in. That should do it.

SOURCE: Failed internet connection, error message

Click "Start" on your computer. Then select "Run." Windows Vista users can type in the word "run" to pull up the program. After you open the program, type "CMD." Type "IPCONFIG" on the command prompt and press "Enter." The screen will display your network settings. Write the number down next to the line "Default Gateway." Close the "Run" program and open a new Internet browser on your computer. Type the DNS number you wrote down into the address bar and hit "Enter." You'll be taken to a site for setting up your connection.

Click the menu selection on the right side of the screen that says "Wireless." Next click the option for registering a new station. Name the new station and you will be asked for the Mac address. Power on your PSP and select "Network Connection." The console will show the Mac address under the network settings. Enter this address into your computer browser.

Submit the information and your PSP will be a registered device. Now connect to the Internet with the handheld and you will not receive the error.

My ps3 says the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out every time i try to connect to the internet


macmall816

If you are getting the obtain ip address message but it is timing out this means that you are not getting a good connection to your network.

Let me know how you are connecting to the internet. Like are you connecting the modem to a router then connecting the PS3 to it via a wired or wireless connection. Also let me know the make and model of you devices in your network.

This info will help me see what is going on

Psp error


do your memory and sound work,moe3 and rosspeters?
if not,its a problem with the memory/sound/wifi circuit board.
if they work,it may be your antenna that is malfunctioning.
you probably will need to replace those,so be prepared to spend around $20.

Connection error


Something is wrong with the Encryption and or Security key setting for the connection. You need to match the Routers Security key. Go to your Routers setup page to find out the exact settings. Setup a new connection with the known Security settings. It should establish a IP address then.

Cannot Use Wireless LAN


the problem is common, you need to set up the psp manually and not let it obtain an ip address automatically. the easiest way is to find either your router ip address or your pc's ip address e.g if your routers ip address is 192.168.2.1, then your pc's allocated address will be 192.168.2.2, so set your psp address to 192.168.2.3. you will also need to set the gateway address, this is your routers ip address(the one you type in your browser to get into the routers settings).e.g 192.168.2.1. the DNS setting will be 255.255.255.0, all other address settings required will be the routers ip address eg 192.168.2.1.
