Did you select to have security for the connection? If so, you probably entered the wrong security key.

    A Connection Error has Occured. The attempt to obtain the IP address timed out.
    - If using the PPoE,You entered a wrong username or password.
    + Check your username and pass
    + Check if you have internet connection.
    + Enable your DCHP server.
    + Restart your router.
    + Be sure to check your IP address and Primary/Secondary DNS to match what in your computer.
    + Check your WEP password if you correctly typed it.


    I found that inputing the SSID manually instead of scanning sorted out
    the problem. Im not sure if it'll work for you, but who knows. You may even have to turn wep off for it to work if you have the 3.90 updates......

Ip adress timed ou


Try power-cycling the router (unplug and plug back in). Make sure wifi is enabled on psp (green light @ bottom left, toggle switch is on bottom left of psp). Also, when typing in encryption key, make sure the encryption protocol settings on the psp are the same as what your psp is broadcasting. So if your router is broadcasting WPA/WPA2 encryption, make sure psp is set to that.
Hope this helps.

what system are u useing? just because the system found the ip address doesnt mean it connected to the router. check and make sure you have the passwords and router name, select ur home network and follow the steps. that should get you where you need to be.

IP Adress Can't be Read By PS3


Well, I'm not completely sure how to help exactly. This problem sometimes prompts as "DNS" error followed by an error code. If it displays a DNS error, then your problem is that the PS3 cannot find the modem (and router if you have it connected that way).
DNS errors on the PS3 simply means that it cannot find (see) the modem/router.
One way of correcting this would be to reset your modem (and router if you have it connected that way)by unplugging it (from wall and power port). Keep it unplugged for 1 minute or so. Power down your PS3 at the same time.
Plug in your modem (and router if you have it connected that way) and allow for it to reset.
Now power on your PS3 and go to the network settings and establish a new wired connection. Follow the prompts and test the connection afterwards.
Mind you, this is a general means to solving the problem. Try this first to see if you are successful.
I do hope that this helps you.

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.

Can you give a little more information about your configuration? Are you connected at all? Do you know what is going on? Does your car have an automatic transmission? Do you have people hooked to the underground chopshop network? Have you relocated through a time portal? If you have, did you tell sony the problems people are having in the future with there PS3s? Did they commit you into an asylum? Did you call sonys tech support hotline? The number is 1-800-345-7669. I hope they can help you without having to unanswer your questions with more questions like these. If they don't know, I would suggest smashing it with a hammer.
