Keeps timing out when obtaining ip adress,tried inputting manually but cant move off screen.dont know about the other settings on the same page.and that kong tip at the start is just pants.thanks in advance
Okay, unplug your internet modem for 15 min, keep the connection to the PS3, of course. do automatic settings, not manual, select easy but DO NOT GO FURTHER until you plug in your internet. Let it cycle, the modem may shut down. if/when it does, turn it on and continue. The PS3 should automatically find everything by itself. Confirm then test the settings.

Check in your router to see if your router is set up to be a DHCP Server. If your router and adsl are both set up to be DHCP servers, sometimes they will fight with each other and some computers seem to have problems getting adresses from this kind of setup. Make sure that only one is set up to give out adresses, then check on your second computer to make sure that it is set to obtain adress automaticaly. If someone has set a manual adress in that computer that is not on the same subnet as the router, they will not comunicate. If this does not solve your problem, try putting in manual adresses into both computers: IE 192.168.1.2, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1 in the first, and 192.168.1.3 in the second with the same subnet and default gateway,
Have you set up your lynksys to allow wireless QoS? If not go to your lynksys broadband wireless software. If you don't know how enter 192.168.1.1 into your explorer bar, log in with lynksys, default is top line blank password 'admin', go to Applications and Gaming tab and enable Wireless QoS, you'll also see all of the places to establish and open ports for specific applications.
you need to open a incoming port for the ps3 on your router all you have to do is use the computer to go to your router settings then use whatever ip the ps3 is using and open a port for that ip address that should work but i dont have a ps3 so i dont know you could try that
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).
right fist of go on settings on the ps3 menu then go to network setting then click onsettings and connection status list take a note of all the ip addresses and servers then go to internet connection on the same menu and click on scan then click on your router name and then lick onenter ur wep key if u av 1m but if u dnt then cck on none then press right then go o custom on the address setting then manual on ip adress settings type in all ip address and servers and stuff then click on auto on the mtu dont use proxy server enable unpn click right then press x to save ur settings then test connection thn hopefully this works for u m8 cheers arsenal_07
