After you have the Ethernet cable from your modem plugged into your PS3 press and hold the reset button on the back of the modem for about 5-10 seconds. This will reset the modem so that it will recognize the connect to your PS3. Once your done using your PS3 and reconnect the Ethernet cable back to your computer you will have to reset the modem again. Any time you move the Ethernet cable from one device to another you need to reset it after you have the cable connected to what ever device you want to get online with at that time. If you do not want to keep resetting your modem all the time a router will allow for you to have more then one device online at a time. The router will connect to your modem and then your devices will connect to your router.
If it's failing the IP test, that would imply that it can't talk to your router, not the internet, since that's where it gets it's IP address from. (Although XBox may do this with an internet check) So: -First, have you tried a different ethernet cable to the XBox; one that you know is good? -Secondly, ports on the switch can go bad without the whole switch failing. Have you tried plugging it in to a different one in the router? -Assuming you have a dynamic service such as a cable modem, have you tried plugging the XBox directly into that modem wire coming out to the router?
Be sure to power cycle the XBox on each of these checks so you remind it to go out and check for a connection. ( this would be the same as ps3 also)
First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :- wii.php">http://fixhomenetwork.com/xbox-play-station-wii.php
Dis-connect the ethernet cable from the back of the PS3 if there is one connected or go to custom instead of easy and you'll get to choose between wireless or wired. In custom just go through everything clicking do not use or automatic after you have entered your password and everything.
hello have you tryed another ethernet cable also turn the power off at the router take the lead out at the back of the router there should be reset button hold this in for 15 seconds re plug in everythink in hopeful it should work good luck
Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).
If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.
Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.
I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!
Yes! plugging it in on the Ethernet cable on the modem to the computer should get you online. If your not able to get online, you may want to check the following:
1. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter on the computer is enabled. If you can't find the Local Area Connection icon in your Network connections (control panel\network and sharing center), check if the network adapter is properly installed.
2. Some cable service providers require the MAC/Physical address of the Computer to get it online through the modem. If the old computer is working with the modem, you may want to contact your ISP and ask their assistance in getting you online using your new computer.
The easiest way would be to disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the PS3. The PS3 doesn't care if it shares a cable as it really only meeds one when you want to be online. There is no setting for the "cable" all you do is unplug from the back of your computer and then plug it into the PS3; reverse when you are finished playing.
