Hey syack It would be easier if i had more details on the problem
DMZ and Static IP addressing are both ways to "port forward/trigger" so i take it this is what you're trying to achieve.
If the PS3 will not connect at all
Verify the static ip is not being used and is correct to the subnet mask (for example: if the gateway's IP address is 192.168.0.1 then the PS3 has to have a IP starting with 192.168.0 such as 192.168.0.20)
Verify all cables are working correctly "use them on different devices"
Set the network back to how it was and try again
If the PS3 disconnects after time then it is nearly always down to the PS3's NIC or the cables connecting it to the network.
As my brother has had a similar problem in the past.You can try going to the store you bought it from with your receipt and request a replacement or refund.If that doesn't work,you can send it in to Sony.If you don't have a warrant,There a repair fee,but it's cheaper than buying another PS3.
I had this same problem but managed to fix it by buying a router off ebay. I tryed the ethernet cable to computer thing but it just didn't work at all no matter what i tryed. I bought my router off ebay and it only cost £15 and now i'm playing online all the time.
there is something known as NAT strict that can happen due to many reasons , NAT or network address translator helps in converting the WAN ip address to LAN side IP address or public to private ipaddress . In a case of NAT strict or no NAT type ur PS3 or the router to which you have connected the PS3 is not able to convert the IP address... Solution: try logging on to the router manager or PS3 settings and enable the NAT ( it would be in a disabled state or DMZ ( de militarized zone ) state ).... If the nat is already enabled Then try to manually configure NAT by opening the port numbers on the router manager or PS3. Port numbers can of UP or TCP protocol depending upon the games ur tyring to play.... If u donno how u do it then contact sony or the people who gave u the router or ur ISP
First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings
Windows XP 1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections 2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath 3. Click Support 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Windows Vista 1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center 2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
