ive been trying to get online for ages now and just cant do it.
I have broardband (not wireless) and i usually connect the cable into the back of the modem (i think thats right????) and when i run a connection test on the ps3 it says its failed to find an IP Address - then when i get my IP Address from cmd and put that in - it then says it just cant connect to the internet.
Can someone pleese help, because i really want to play you guys online and updats my system.
Many Thanks

well it may be the same as other problems in that its not actually a router but a cable modem. Yea there should be a model number on it if its a router. See if you can find it

It means its not a router and that you have to buy a router.

elo mate.

i also had a very hard time gettin online. as i didnt actually have a router just a modem connection. try avin a look at the back of your pc unit, and see if there is an ethernet connection somewhere. if so, this is what i did, run the ethernet straight into the back of your pc and go to network settings and set up a local area or home network. and tick the box that says u want to allow other systems to connect through yours pc's connection. this works!! its how i get online. the ps3 should configure itself if u do this.

the only downside is, to get online with the ps3, you also have to have your ps3 on and be connected to the internet.

resistance online is imense. i just got a headset so i can now dish out some abuse to all those that shoot me in the back!!!!!

good luck.

yep it does. I'd go with this. Its got NEXT technology that means you get super fast wireless as well. I've got one at home and its very easy to use and setup.

The router will be what allows you to have wireless.

A router replaces your motorola cable modem you have. It has a slot for the phone line for the incoming ADSL signal and has 4 network ports which means you can lob a cable in the back of your PS3. You dont have to use wireless its just there if you want to. The internet signal is pumped out of the router via the network ports and wireless and you can use both if required. E.g at home I have the PS3 sat next to the router which is hard wired in. And my laptop is connected to the wireless network so they both share the connection.

Roberts your fathers brother.

i havent got wireless either. i had to get a 10metre ethernet to run through the house!!

i havent got a router either, there sometimes calle hubs. a big box thing that sits by your pc. they are good but i only have modem connection, i e. my pc connects to a little white filter box (adsl) and that clips into the wall.

No worries - just bosh a post up wheny ou get your router and let us know. There have been a few similar to this - cable modems suck cock. Routers do the job. did you see the link to the netgear one i recommended?
Oh and make sure its a modem router - not just a router - they are different.

Misco isn't a bad shout and its £80 which is a good price. Here is the link.
That router you have suggested is older and doesn't have the new wireless technology, plus its also about £130.

Sorry try this one - you get a free wireless card as well so if you have a laptop - or are going to get one then you can use the full 270Mbps connection. (its not possible to get that rate with std built in wireless)
