If you have a Sony device, the problem is completely on Sony's end (Feb 24 2015). A so-called "provisioning server" that Sony requires your device to use was down (whether by hackers or technical error), thus preventing your device from working. Very poor design! An error message clarifying that the problem was "Unable to reach the Sony server" would have saved me and many others hours of time trying in vain to fix a non-existent problem on my end. And worse is that this server only helps Sony capture details of your usage (forget your privacy!). They could easily have designed the device to connect directly (and much faster) to Netflix or wherever without snooping, or at least even if the Sony provisioning server were down. This probably also explains why it often takes so much time to connect to Netflix compared to when I use my PC. This is the last Sony Internet device I'll buy! And I'll check reviews to make sure whatever device I buy isn't hobbled by a similar poor design.

Why am I losing internet speed when using router goes fro 60mps to 5-10 mps


how did you bypass the router ? what is connecting to the internet if you bypass the router ? question is the device connecting to the internet got a DHCP server and does the router have a DHCP server. What IP ranges are the two DHCP servers allocating.
You may need to switch off one of the DHCP servers in one of the two devices. Probably the DHCP servers are confusing each other .
Only my educated guess with the limited information on how your network devices interact. .

Trying to launch netflix streaming and i got the message "there was a problem communicating with the Playstation network. Please try again later." How do i fix this?


Apascual67 -
There are quite a few problems that could lead to you getting that message. In order of easiest to hardest to fix, here's a few of them:
1: It could be that your PS3 is not connected to the internet.
  • Try going to the browser on the Playstation, and try loading a basic webpage, like www.google.com. If that works, then try Netflix again.
  • If you're not connected to the internet, then go back to the main menu, and go to the internet (or maybe it's called network, not sure) settings. Sign in to your home or dorm's wireless network, if there is one. I can't help you with that, as each network is different.
  • If you cannot connect to a wireless network, or if one is not present, then try connecting your PS3 to the internet using an ethernet cord, if you have one. (It looks like a phone cord, but the ends are bigger.)

2: If you are connected to the internet, and you still can't access Netflix, then there's a few more things to try.
  • Most easily, turn your Ps3 off then on again. I'm not super sure if that will fix it, but it can't hurt to try.
  • Make sure that you're using the correct username/password to sign in to the Playstation Network, and that you're using the right combo for Netflix.

3: If none of those work, then there could be a deeper network problem. Perhaps your home internet is set up incorrectly, or maybe Sony or Netflix are having server problems. Whatever the reason, I can't help beyond this.
Good luck!

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

We have a DHCP problem with our thin client HP T5540, the network interface can't get an ip address fom the DHCP server for 30 seconds so it can't connect to citrix xen serverver for virtualization...


First of all check the configuration of the unit if it's AUTOMATIC IP/DHCP, if all OK you can test by configuring a static IP (use an unused IP in the server's DHCP table) than check the connectivity (ping something), if that works you have a server rule/DHCP or DNS problem

if it's still not working check the cabeling and connectors for connectivity (with a good cable tester) or an other (working) computer.

Good luck!

When your computer is trying to request IP address from a DHCP server but it does not see the DHCP server it will give up and make up an IP address for itself. This IP will often look something like 169.x.x.x. This is a fake local address that Windows assigned to your PC when it couldn't reach a DHCP server.

Make sure that your computer is connected to a network with working DHCP server.

When your network shows limited connection, it could be that you system did not pick IP address from your DHCP server. so it assigned itself a public IP address. In this case make sure your system has the correct networking setting and it can reach the DHCP Server. If you are using a modem, the service from your service provider may be poor in your area.

Xbox 360


Either the network connection between the 360 and router is not working correctly, or your router is not configured properly for DHCP.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that automatically assigns a network address (and some other settings) to your computer....or Xbox in this case. It works like this....when your Xbox connects to the network, it sends out a broadcast packet on the network that looks for a DHCP server. If a DHCP server is present, it responds. Next the Xbox requests its network address and other settings from the DHCP server. Your WGR614 router has a DHCP server function built in, but it may not be enabled. Try reconfiguring the router using the Netgear "Smart Wizard" installation CD and be sure to enable the DHCP capability, if asked.
