My ps3 network connection will just not work. Everytime I try to get on the network, it says IP address not found. This really annoys me since I have looked on my computer and found the IP address, DNS servers, ect. I put these in, but it still doesn't work. I don't know waht to do next. Can you help me?

possible cause is that ps3 uses an ip address leased from the wi fi router via its DHCP Server in Router. If PS3 was off for a while another computer on Wi FI network may have been assigned the IP address that the PS3 thinks it has.
Try page 29 of
on page 31 change the ip address setting to manual
set ip to 192.168.0.254 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Now exit setup
Then go back into Setup
Change IP address setting to Auto
This will renew the ip address from the DHCP server to the ps3 hopefully allocating you a fresh IP address lease .
The error code indicates that the PS3 is unable to contact the Playstation Network Servers. This may be caused by the PSN (Playstation Network) being under excessive load (often a result of new, significant DLC being released) or a problem with your router or ISP (Internet Service Provider).
On your Playstation 3, go to the Settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select Network Settings, then select Internet Connection Test. If you do not see success for Obtaining IP Address and Internet Connection, then there is a problem with the networking between your PS3 and the internet.
If you both of these connections prove successful, but you are still not able to sign in to the PSN, try:
Contact your ISP and see if they have some sort of outage in your area or are somehow hindering your connection to the Playstation Network.
1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my
typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://126.96.36.199
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.
Restore your router to factory settings, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses on the router.
The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.
Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.
Assuming the media test works (So the cable/wireless connections are
OK) then it's possible that you're out of available IP addresses in the
router. It shouldn't be a problem (Most router configs allow for over
250 IP addresses), but it might only have limited leases.
Try switching everything off (Except for the router), restart the
router and then try the PS3. That should rule out a problem with DHCP
i had a simsilar problem with my nintendo wii. i also have a mac and broadband ( but that doesn't matter). if you get into your wireless router by going to 192.168.1.254 in your safari browser. go to "wireless" settings. there is a channel selection (1-7) change it to 1. that should work. if not change to 2 etc.
