Re: ps3 wont join network
Try setting a static ip address for 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
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.

How many computers do you have in the network? How many are not able to access the Internet or IP address? If only one computer is not able to access the Internet then you can try assigning a static IP address on the computer and see if you can access the Internet. If all the computers are not able to get IP address from the router then I think you should try to reset and upgrade the firmware on the router.
When you put the IP address in you also have to add your DNS settings.
easiest way to find your DNS server address is to use an XP based
machine and type "ipconfig /all" it will list all of the properties of
your computers network card. thake those DNS address' and plug them
into your PS3.
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..
You must have a wireless router, and set the networking prefs to auto join your network. the router should assign an ip address to the PS3. You will probably have to go into the router software through your web browser on your computer, and find the ip of the PS3, then put that address into the DMZ of the router. this will stop any errors with the NAT firewall.
