My ps3 says it obtained ip address but says internet connection failed. what do i do?


Try shutting down your router or modem for a few minutes. Turn it back on and try again. If it still doesn't work, then your router or modem may be outdated.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Sounds like a problem with the firmware in your router. Connect
your laptop directly to one of the four ports with a cat 5 cable. Turn of your wireless adapter and connect through the cable.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a pop up box which asks you to enter a user name and password. The default user name is admin and the default password is admin or password. From there You will be all the settings you can control. You are looking for the one to go on line and download the current firmware update. This will most likely solve your problem. If your router was working fine before do not tamper with any of the other options. If this does not clear up your problem you will probably need a new router. You can also try Pushing the tiny reset button on the back and running the setup disk that came with your router. If this fails you definitely need a new router.
I hope this helps you. If you need more help feel free to contact me.

Obtain ip address failed !!!! what is ip address ??


Hi,


IP means internet protocol.

Try turning off your modem and router for a couple of minutes and then turn them back on again and go into the settings menu and reset you internet network settings, see if that helps.

My ps3 says the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out every time i try to connect to the internet


macmall816

If you are getting the obtain ip address message but it is timing out this means that you are not getting a good connection to your network.

Let me know how you are connecting to the internet. Like are you connecting the modem to a router then connecting the PS3 to it via a wired or wireless connection. Also let me know the make and model of you devices in your network.

This info will help me see what is going on

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


OK IF YOU HAVE PS3, and you get the ERROR DNS while trying to login into PSN, all u need to do is, shutdown the console, then restart it by holding down the ON button on the PS# not the controller till you hear 2 beeps, then try to login again, should work.

Connecting to the Internet


Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins. Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.
