You may need to get a router. The cable modem may not be giving more than 1 IP address.

A router would fix that.

How to get it online with a ps3? I hooked it up to the ps3 with the Ethernet cable. It says connection failed .but it wont go online. Any help would be dearly needed. Thanks


First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :-

How do i get internet on a ps3?..


You have to connect the ethernet cable coming from your modem to a hub on the 1st clips space.
Then the 2nd one don't use it, the 3rd one will be for the cable coming between the hub and the PC. Hub is a (Network Hub Switch) that you can buy it from any hardware shop.
Then the 4th one is the one you connect between the hub and the PS3.
You have to give a local IP for your PC and PS3 using the configuration of your modem, or by enabling the DHCP to let the IP getting released automatically.
It will work 100% in case you follow the procedures properly

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

Where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.


Phone Line?

You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router.
Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch


Hope this helps

How to hook up the Ethernet 5port Workgroup Hub Model No. ew5HUB


To start with please make sure it says router on it as the title says "Networking Hub". These are two different devices. If not return the Hub and purchase a Linksys Router then follow instructions below.

Assuming you have a router:

Before you begin unplug the power from the Cable or DSL Modem before you start as they will have to be powered on in a particular order I will discuss later.

Your cable or DSL modem will have a cable coming out of it that looks similar to a phone line except a little larger. The cable will say CAT5 or CAT6 or Ethernet on it.

On your Linksys Router there will be a ports/jack that you can plug the Cable into from your Cable/DSL Modem. You want to look for one labled "WAN" or "Internet". Plug it in then plug in the power to your Cable or DSL Modem. When the "Ready" light is on the modem, plug in the power cable to your router.

The next step is hooking it up to your computer. There will be anywhere from 1 to 8 more ports available on your Router that is number 1,2,3,4, etc. Plug another Ethernet Cable into any one of those ports. With the other end plug it into your PC or Laptop, there is only one port/jack on your computer that this plug will fit in. Power up your PC and voila, you should be on the Internet.

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks,
Adam

Modem to router to hub to wireless


What you can do is test the PS3 while wired to the router first. If that does not work you may need to forward ports on your router so it will allow the PS3 to accept connections through the router firewall.

ENTERNET CONNECTIONS FOR PS-3 80GB


if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx
