No need to turn off the router's firewall... just forward the ps2 port number on the router. make sure you manually assign static ip address to your ps2.

Modem light is blinking no internet light


hi, there are two ways to assit you on this issue.Either you can call belkin customer care which is a TOLL FREE no. on the product box and get assisted or else proceed with the following basic steps.
1. the product that you have is an obsolette.
2.Before troubleshooting the belkin product. Please connect your computer directly with the modem (without router)on the ethernet(lan) port and check for the solid lights on the modem after turning it on, after that check for internet connectivity, if you can go online, its fine else you need to contact your modem vendor and get fixed.
3. if u can go online, then connect your router isolated port to the modem amd your computer back to the router's lan port(port 1) and check for the solid internet,power,modem,lan lights on the router.
4. if all are solid lights , check you can go online else you can hold the reset button at the rear side of your router for 2 mins if you have a cable modem and then check for connectivity.
5. If you have a dsl connection , then better contact customer care, they assit you very well.

Always lose connection while playing playstation 3 online. Sometimes my computer displays a launchmodem error when trying to get on the internet. If I unplug the modem and router, it works again.


Please give some information on your router and modem brand/model, also what type of connection do you have, cable, dsl, etc. Go to speedtest.net and post your upload and download speeds as well.

Are you connecting to your play station wirelessly or through network cable directly to the back of the PS3?

Depending on your speeds your connection could be overloaded by the high demand the PS puts on your internet connection, or if you are wireless you could be in far range from where the router is located. Hope this helps. The extra information might help.
