Do you have a modem or a routeer?
Do you have a decivce, that usually look like a box (1hand size).
That device is connected usually connected to an ethernet cable. (like a phone cable but thinker at the heads) ,If you know them, copy them on a pice of paper, then select add settings manualy, and write the settings (IP, DNS, ect).
Please visit this link. If after reading it, and going trough the conenction wizzard you are still having problems, let me know and i will further help you,
Anyway, can you connect your computer to internet using the same thumb drive you are using with your PS3?

If so, let me know and i will tell you how to get the IP, DNS, and other information, so you can set your internet connection on your PS3 manualy.

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.

Hope this may help;

On a computer wired to the gateway or connected to the gateway. Click start then run then type in "cmd"
in the command prompt type in "ipconfig" look for gateway. Take note of that number.
on an internet explorer browser type that number in the address bar
then go inside the gateway page and look for wireless and wireless security. There you will find the key you are looking for.

Is your PS3 connected wirelessly to a router or a modem? because if it is there's just a problem with the connection from the PS3 to the router/modem is not fully establish, that can be cause with an incorrect WEP key..

    Double check the wireless settings of your PS3 because that's the only problem there, just check the security key from your wireless gateway in order for the PS3 to work with it...take note of the WEP key from your gateway that's the most important thing....



    Good luck........

It's connected to your router, right? If not, it's trying to talk to your internet connection box, and it is not getting an answer.

the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .

PS3 connection error


Are you connecting through a router?. If so set all of your PS3 settings to easy. If your trying to connect directly to a dsl or cable modem, you might not get connectivity but may get an ip address, as some providers require that you register your MAC address with them to connect a particular device. If you have a router...say a wired one, and you connect any PC through it and get internet, you should be able to hook up the PS3 and put it on easy automatic settings for the connection and it should connect. However, if the router is set for a static ip address (no dhcp), it wont hand out all of the information to the Ps3.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


OK IF YOU HAVE PS3, and you get the ERROR DNS while trying to login into PSN, all u need to do is, shutdown the console, then restart it by holding down the ON button on the PS# not the controller till you hear 2 beeps, then try to login again, should work.
