Gomez111, is this your connection?

ps3 wireless internet connection. ip address timed - e0d2c4c.jpg

if so then you will have to contact Optus because they will have to reconfigure your account to allow the firewall ports of your connection to let the PS3 pass.

Are you connected to a router, or straight into your internet connection? (Are you sharing the connection with any other computers or devices?)

Depending on if you're using a Dial-Up Connection or a Broadband Connection, the solution is quite different. If you are using a Dial-Up connection, the PS3 will have to do the dialing. In your case, I do believe that you are using an Ethernet (Broadband) Connection which is always on. In order for your PS3 to get Internet access, you will need to get a router and install it before you can get online with your PS3.

I have a cricket broadband wireless internet modem and im trying to get online with my playstation 3


Hi, follow the below steps to forward ports on the router for PS3:

1. Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari) on your computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router (Username = admin and Password = Password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
5. Click on 'Add Custom Service' button.
6. Specify any name for the service (PSN1).
7. Specify the Start and the End Port as 80.
8. In the server IP Address specify the ip address of the PS3.
9. Click on 'Add' button.
10. Follow the same steps to open the below ports
Start = 443 End = 443 use name as PSN2
Start = 5223 End = 5223 use name as PSN3
Start = 3478 End = 3479 use name as PSN4.
Start = 3658 End = 3658 use name as PSN5.
Click Apply.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

you can get the dns setting by connecting a computor to the broadband the steps are
  1. goto 'start'
  2. goto 'run'
  3. type 'cmd.exe'
  4. in the commmand prompt type 'ipconfig' , it gives all the details about your broadband.
DNS error generaly means that there is nothing wrong with your system but ther must be a problem with your internet provider..

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

PS3 and Internet connection using Ethernet - from a mac


Where did you obtain the IP address?


If you went into System Preferences and saw the PS3 there and copied the assigned IP address, then it should work.

Laptop finding router but no internet connection


If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck

Edimax wireless-g broadband router


please confirm if the router is a 6104K, or a KP or Wg or another model as the K and KP are not wireless, a "W" will denote wireless capability...

Not all manuals are available for download from the Edimax website but heres a start...

Connect the router to your PC with a cable... leave the modem disconnected to start with

open internet explorer and type in enter the default IP address 192.168.2.1 (broadband router’s IP address) into your PC’s web browser and press <enter>

This should bring up a user/password dialog box. By default the user name is "admin" and the password is "1234".

Confirm you are getting this far and we'll go the next steps

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

DIR-635 can't access the internet


I think you have wrong configuration of your router.

1. Some xDSL Internet Service Providers may assign a Fixed IP Address for your Broadband router. If you have been provided with this information, choose this option and enter the assigned IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway IP Address and DNS IP Address for your Broadband router.
2. If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must choose this option and enter the required information.
