Sounds to me that you have the internal firewall enabled in the router and haven't built ports or 'pin holes' to allow your ps3 to access the network through the gateway. If you know how to navigate the router's advanced setup page then the easiest option is to set it from either of the two available options for firewall security to the third option of 'clear sailing' . This is assuming that it's not just the router itself and other devices are able to connect without problem. The Netopia 3347 doesn't allow for NAT changing from type 2 or 3 which, despite what you may read, doesn't hinder gaming or speech, unless you go deep into the provisioning and are using it for vpn or as a bridge. I hope this is understandable and can at least point you in the right direction because this is one of the absolute BEST routers ever 'given away' with ADSL service from BellSouth/AT&T.

Ps3 says ip address timed out / wep key was entered incorrect.


Have you tried manually adding a IP to your PS3 ie if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.254 set your PS3 to 192.168.1.60, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and set the gateway to the IP address of your router in this example it would be 192.168.1.254..

Ip address


check your ip configuration again if you set it up manually, set everything to automatic for easiest setup. If it continues to time out check you modem connections, and make sure if you have a router that you are entering any wep keys that are setup for the router.

Belkin wireless G router not connecting PS3


The PS3 should find the SSID of the network, or you could enter it. And then enter the encryption key, be it WEP or WPA. Everything else should be automatic.

You need to connect the ps3 to the wireless router you use the same ssid on all devices that connect into the router. I think thats where your settings are wrong.

PS3 wireless internet problems


It sounds like a defective wireless antenna. Connect your PS3 via a long network cable and see if you can get online. If you can, the problem is a defective antenna.

Assuming you purchased the PS3 from a store and have the reciept, you should be able to get it swapped or fixed via warranty.

Good luck and take care,
