The IP address is provided by the wireless router when you perform the connection process. You will need to locate your wireless network on the PS3, select it, and when prompted for the security key/code, enter it to gain a connection. Once the connection is established, the PS3 will have an IP address.
The issue here is within the software downloaded, The fact you need to be didicated to the isp is the reason why this is happending, Now circket has a MIFI adaptor that will wokr but you need to use legacy wep key.
i had same problem with my ps3, but i also had a landline connection so i used that instead but as far as i know there are products available which can send out a signal wirelessly but i think orange want an additional fee for online gaming. bt wanted an extre 9.99 per month for me to use thier broadband for gaming so i canged to virgin media and i havent had a problem since
From the sounds of it your using a wireless connection? when you use the auto connect and it fails what does it say in the connection status in internet options? what is your signal strength? mine wouldnt work if it was less than 90%. i sorted this by moving my wireless box to the top hall so connection is 100% and i have no problems. please feel free to ask any questions.
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
Make sure that when u go to internet connection settings to hit the scan icon and then it will show a list of wireless networks that are in range. Then click yours and click no for security. Hope this works
i had a simsilar problem with my nintendo wii. i also have a mac and broadband ( but that doesn't matter). if you get into your wireless router by going to 192.168.1.254 in your safari browser. go to "wireless" settings. there is a channel selection (1-7) change it to 1. that should work. if not change to 2 etc.
