Your wireless settings have changed because you changed routers. Go into your router's configuration and setup your SSID and wireless security settings. Then reconfigure the wireless settings on your ps3 to match the settings you supplied on your router.

Don't just use a wireless router with its default settings out of the box. Your wireless network will be hacked in days. Refer to your router's manual for information on how to configure it.

I have a ps3 ip's adress problem i have a belkin wireless router and when i turn on my ps3 it wont sign in so i go to test conection and it waits and then it says id's adress failed


Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Play Station


Now go to the settings page of the PLAY STATION

NETWORK SETTINGS ==>
INTERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS ==>
WIRELESS SETTINGS ==>
If you get confirmation screen displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet. click YES ==>
select EASY ==>
select WIRELESS ==>
SCAN ==>
you will see your SSID ( wireless network name)==>
select the security settings ( router wireless settings)==>
enter the KEY ==>
select the IP address settings EASY ==>
save your settings ==>
Test the connection .

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Sounds like a problem with the firmware in your router. Connect
your laptop directly to one of the four ports with a cat 5 cable. Turn of your wireless adapter and connect through the cable.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a pop up box which asks you to enter a user name and password. The default user name is admin and the default password is admin or password. From there You will be all the settings you can control. You are looking for the one to go on line and download the current firmware update. This will most likely solve your problem. If your router was working fine before do not tamper with any of the other options. If this does not clear up your problem you will probably need a new router. You can also try Pushing the tiny reset button on the back and running the setup disk that came with your router. If this fails you definitely need a new router.
I hope this helps you. If you need more help feel free to contact me.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.

OK IF YOU HAVE PS3, and you get the ERROR DNS while trying to login into PSN, all u need to do is, shutdown the console, then restart it by holding down the ON button on the PS# not the controller till you hear 2 beeps, then try to login again, should work.
