On my PS3, it says that "the attempt to obtain ip address" has times out. i just want to know whether buying a new router would solve this problem? Plus tell me what you think can be...


You do not need to buy a new router, you just need to find out what the IP address is for the one you have.
then you have to look at your users manual under setup the IP address, and set it up...
An IP address has 000.000.000.000 each of the three numbers between the dots can be from 0-255.
It looks for an IP address for a certain period of time, when it cannot find the device's IP address that you have it hooked up to, it times out.
So, what ever device you have it hooked up to, you really need to know it's IP address.
to find out you need to call the manufacturer of the device and ask them what is the default IP address on the device you purchased. Or if you are hooked up to a cable modem the IP address should be on the label under the cable modem. Or you can call for a service call from the cable company for help.

I cant get xbox live ? my netwok settings , i use my routers ip address and it come to something about static IP?? and i use my cp and by verizon internet card and i try to bride my card and xbox together...


dont know the specifics but you shouldnt need to bother with any of that. just connect router to your modem then connect everythign else to the router if using cable. then just set everything to DNHP or dynamic addressing on your router and also on anything you have connected including xbox and pcs. then switch everything off then switch router on, wait a munite then switch everything else on and all the IPs will then l be allocated automaically.

Getting on line


If you are connecting through your wireless router, you should just let it auto obtain an ip address and auto obtain dns. Is DHCP on in your wireless router?
DNS is the ip address of a server that resolves names like www.something into an ip address. Your ISP usually gives you these numbers.

I cant get wirless xbox live


The 1st question I have is, are you using the official Microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly) manufactured by Microsoft? That is the first solution to this issue. If so you must go into your router settings using the home router IP address usually listed on the router unit and setup the router manually to see the microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly), try typing this ip address into your browser address line (192.168.1.1) this is usually a generic router IP address to access your router. Your 360 should have a MAC address listed when in the settings and that should be seen by the router as well. Also check your firewall settings to make sure that it allows wireless transmissions. ( My computer usually has to be running for it to see wired & wireless devices properly). I also prefer just running a wired network for connectivity issues with wireless, such as other electronic interferrence from cordless phones & microwaves as I sometimes get with my nintendo Wii.
