Playstation 3: Network Timed Out

Sponsored Links
Hi, this is my first post on ps3chat.com (yey! )

Right, ive plugged my ethernet cable supplied with the PS3 into the back of my PS3 and into the back of my computer. When i do all the settings [ wired connection etc. ] it works, BUT then when it starts to say obtaining IP Address it says "Timed Out" or something similar to that.

Has any 'computer wiz' got any idea how to fix it pleeeeeease?
Ill be very grateful if you can help me out. Thanks

If you want to route internet connection from your computer, you will need a crossover cable and also 2 network connections. Essentially, you are using your computer as a router for your Internet connection. What you will have to do is to enable Internet connection sharing (ICS) service on the connection for your computer, and assign the share to the connection for the PS3. So the routing of the connection will look something like this:

Internet >>> CAT5 network cable >>> Computer's first network card >>> ICS shares the connection >>> Computer's second network card >>> CAT5 crossover cable >>> PS3.

For more information on ICS service, please check my other post here

Navigate the playstation 3 menu system to settings, scroll down to network settings, then choose media server connection option. Select to disable media server connection.

time out errors are usually an indication of slow internet speed so do speedchecks when it plays up and if your getting screwed on speed then change your ISP

Playstation Network timing out!

I have a PS3 250GB. I use it with my Panasonic tv, using HDMI cable. My PS3 connects to my wireless router and i can browse Internet just fine. But the only problem is that I cant sign into Playstation Network. TOday being the day, I need it the most, I feel frustrated after updating. Hell no, after media disabling and stuff, it never works. Only when I updated, the Playstation Network times out. .. I have no idea what to do. If anyone knows what the hell I should do. Please reply me.

Dayuumm man! I have the same problem. Its not working and I so wanted this Zombie Map Pack. I hope this gets fixed easily and quickly.. I dont know what basically the problem is and I need help urgently. I live in Jeddah, KSA and I have the local telecom company modem and verything works on it just fine. except this, I have accounts on many PS3 forum websites and in 2 or 3 hours, the problem increased like anything. The people compaining increased like shit. I tried contacting Sony but they only blame other htings except accepting their own mistake about servers. Anyways, I hope this problem gets fixed by 2 or 3 days. PS.The SOny ppl say that he number of people on PSN using at that time might be too much that is why its creating problem. Thats silly like foolish kid talk !
