Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
In my home network, I have an all-in-one linksys cable modem/router/gateway with a built-in 4-port switch. This router/gateway also acts as my DHCP server. When I connect my PS3 to the switch, everything works fine (PS3 is able to obtain an IP address and access the Internet through the gateway). The PS3 Internet Settings are set to automatic (use DHCP). I recently added an external 24-port LAN switch (HP Procurve) with an uplink to the router/gateway. I think I configured the switch (set to the same subnet, use the Linksys as the gateway). I then connected all the computers in the house to the HP switch. They work perfectly (they are able to obtain IP addresses through the Linksys DHCP server and access the Internet). However, the PS3 fails the Internet Test function, saying that it can't obtain an IP address. When I move the connection from the HP switch back to the Linksys switch, it starts working again.
I have not tried manually setting the PS3 IP address, gateway and DNS server. I hope to understand the DHCP issue better before trying workarounds.
Wonderful! that's always a good thing to hear - sometimes it is the "make sure you're power cord is plugged in" problem, eh :)
