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


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

169 IP address just happened and now have limited to no connectivity use comcast as a provider It's a dell 2300 dimension help

This is a common networking occurrence. This is called APIPA. See this link: APIPA is an IP address which is assigned when no other address is available. Whatever Windows version you have, this will work if it's above Windows 95. Click on the Start menu, choose "Run", type in "cmd.exe" once you get a command prompt, type in "ipconfig /release", then "ipconfig /renew". This will release the APIPA address and attempt to get a valid address. Hope this helps.

Takes 2 to 3 attempts to open Explorer

Define your router IP address as DNS server in your TCP-IP protocol (Control Panel, Network adapter)

Cannot connect the the Zyxel page to configure my Embarq router.

you can check the router ip address by going to network connections in control panel and then, right click on connection icon>status, then support tab, there will be the ip address of your pc and the default gateway address which will be your routers address.

If you still cannot get into the router, there will be a hard reset button on the underside or rear of the unit.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet

Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

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

IP address

Hi tammyhope,
I would guess that your ISP is providing a dynamic IP address for connectivity to the internet. If your router is changing the IP address back to default, I would think that your configuration is not setup properly, to receive a dynamic address, but is set with a static address instead. So what happens is that when you attempt to connect to your ISP your router is resetting. If this is the case then you need to go into the router configuration and set it to recieve a dynamic address from your ISP.
