    cannot connect my ps3 just keeps asking for ip address?

  • icerobinmom9 Apr 13, 2009

    I setup wireless networks, understand how this is supposed to work, and still can't get the PS3 connected. Doing as you suggested, I was able to get an IP, but the internet connection failed. Tried manually assigning an IP, changing my DNS and Default Gateways/etc, to no avail.

The PS3 has issues with some wireless routers and encryption. The internet is littered with people having problems. I have a Linksys WRK54G and while I can connect with no encryption if I set it to WPA the PS3 can no longer connect.

Most people have had to resort to MAC address filtering in order to have their network secured if they are having problems. Shame on Sony!

This is fairly easy.
1. Open network settings
2. Selected wireless and scan
3. When you see your router name click on that.
4. If you have a WEP security code you will need to enter that.
5. You should be finished!!
If you have any more questions, please comment here and I will come back and respond.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you!!

Hi, i have a D-link DWL-G122 wirelesss adapter and when connected after 30 min or less the conection gets lost , what to do?


You will need to contact your ISP - they know your set up - it is all sent to them and they do not care for it - - most likely the ISP you have needs to be told to keep the signal stronger - also you can go into your unit and set a STAY ALIVE setting - please read your wireles ROUTER - it is the signal sending unit - or wireless rounter that is the problem - not the adaptor.

Just wanted to know is there any way to get my ps3 online


try opening a portal from you router to your ps3, the router will shut down all the things it need to in order to play your games more efficiently. If that doesn't work try hard wireing your ps3 to your router. If your getting online on your ps3 wirelessly then try moving your router or your ps3 closer together.

LOSE CONNECTION WHEN PLAYING FRIENDS ON RE5


Its your router connection, the ps3 is only getting bellow 50% of your wifi conection, add a nother router to your existing router or if your router has antenas like the(D-LINK XTREME N GIGABIT WIRELES ROUTER) TAKE A BOX AND RAP TINFOIL ON IT, MAKE THE HOLES ON ONE OF THE WINGS OF THE BOX WHERE THE ANTENAS GO AND THIS WILL AMPLIFY YOUR SIGNAL THUS GIVING YOUR PS3 AT LEAST 80% STREGHT. GOOOGLE AMPLIFY WIFI ROUTER SIGNALS OR YOUTUBE IT THATS WHERE I LEAR IT.

Ps3 game


Hi there,

you will need to enable internet connection sharing. Some laptops have the ability to create a network.

The easiest way to do this is to create a wireless network, and have your ps3 join that network and essentially use the internet through your laptop.

Hope this helps,

Nathan.

When ever I get that problem it's the wirless router settings. Check the settings and make sure everything is set up right. Sorry, thats as much as I know about the DNS error on the PS3.

You can only sign into your Playstation account if you are using your own user profile on the far left of the XMB.

Do a Network test to see if you can even connect to PSN. Go to Settings, Network Settings, and do and Internet Connection Test.

if your test doesn't show your NAT type as either 1 or 2 then your router is being to restrictive. Try changing some of the settings to allow the PS3 full access to the internet.
