DSL or cable? DSL you will only need your usernam/password combo for PPPOE, cable you should be able to just plug it in and go. set your router for DHCP and it will pull all pertinent info from your ISP's DHCP and DNS servers.

Need to set up wireless router


you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)

Error code 8002ad23


Hi Giles

You probably have your router connected to your modem, and a PC connected wired/wireless, and the ps3 connected wired/wireless.


1. First you need to start your ps3 system. Go to your network settings and select information. Write down your IP, Subnet mask, Standard Gateway, and the primary DNS.

2. Start your PC and go to your networks settings. Right click your network adapter, click properties. Select "Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Click properties and type in manually the IP adress, Subnet mask, Standard gateway and DNS.

Then you click "Advanced" and then you click "WINS" then "Activate NetBIOS over TCP/IP". Save your settings and connect the ps3 to your network (should not make a difference if you do it wired or wirelessly)

Let me know if this helped and please do rate my solution.

If your laptop has a wireless card built in - or external, you will be able to get the wireless signal.  You need to open your wireless dialog - Start > My Network Places > View Network Places

Netopia 2247NWG for smarttelecom


Sorry if my writing is not clear I dont have best english.
If you move your router from eircom to smartelecom you have to change security protocol from "chap" eircom to "pap" smarttelecom.
Now Do this few steps.
Go to start menu on windows find and click run.
type: cmd and press ok
When you will see black screen that will be command prompt.
Now you have to type your defaul ip adress. To check your defaul ip adress type ipconfig in command prompt and press enter.
Default Gateway is your default ip adress. Now when you know your ip type in command prompt:
telnet yourip 23 and press enter, for example:
telnet 192.168.1.254 23
If you didnt setup any password to login to the router you will be loged automaticly and you will see "Netopia-2000/18861188>
But if you have setuped login and password to your router you have to first type your login and press enter,then password and press enter to have acces.
next is easy type:
configure and press enter
ppp and press enter
set and press enter
now you have to pressing enter about till you will see line:
option <chap-only> [ off : on : pap-only : chap-only ]:
on this line type pap-only and press enter
now start pressing enter till you see:
Netopia-2000/18861188 <ppp>>>
then type save and press enter.
When you see line:
Configuration data saved you can close command prompt window.
From this moment your router will be work with smarttelecom.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.

Ip adress config/dns server


when using a static IP you must also get the DNS server addresses from your router's manufacturer. the primary/secondary DNS for D-Link routers are 4.2.2.2/4.2.2.3 respectively. contact the customer support line of your product or do a Google search for"_______ dns" (____ being your product name)
