Why Am I Unable to Get a Wired Connection? IP Address Timed Out?

Sponsored Links
Hello, Iím new to the forums and I hope someone can help me solve the problem Iíve been having connecting my PS3 to the internet. Some backstory: I bought my PS3 last year, connected it directly through my DSL modem, ran through the setup process and was able to get online with no problem. When I wanted to get online with the PS3 I simply unplugged my computer from the modem and plugged the PS3 in.

Now, several months later Iíve moved to a new house and switched from DSL to Cable with a different provider. I attempted to set my PS3 up the exact same way with the cable modem but now I get an error message saying ďConnection to network could not be establishedĒ and Iím prompted to check my settings.

Okay. . . So I go to network settings and run through the setup process again. After a connection test Iím told that the test has ďfailedĒ and the ďattempt to obtain IP address has timed outĒ. Iíve now tried every method I can think of to solve this problem and visited several chat sites to see if anyone else has a similar problem but I canít find anyone with an answer. Iíve attempted to input the IP address manually, using the same numbers as my computer, Iíve reset the modem, Iíve contacted my service provider and they provided no help. Iím going into my second week now dealing with this problem and itís become an unbearable aggravation.

Please keep in mind Iím a casual gamer. Iím not interested in online gaming; I go online simply to obtain the latest system updates and to browse the Playstaion Network for game trailers and demos. Iím not interested in purchasing a router (especially since most people with a similar problem already have a router). I donít have or need a wireless connection. I just want to get online as easily as I did with my DSL. Does anyone have any idea how to do this? What step am I missing? Why wonít the PS3 automatically recognize the new modem like it did the last one? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Solution

Here is how I solved this problem for those of you using a wireless router to connect your ps3

Log in to you router via your web browser. your screen name should be "admin" and password will be "password"

After you've logged in you can change your passord to whatever you choose.

Anyway, dig through the options after you've logged in, find the option that allows you to revert your router to it's factory setting. In other words it will revert back to the day you took it out of the box.

After that use your wireless laptop to set up your router.... After you've done everything to set it up turn your PS3 back on.

Go to network settings, select easy, make sure it scans for device..... From there you're set.

Have fun playing black ops, or whatever it is you youngins do these days.

This forum wouldnt let me post the addy where you log into your router via web browser.... just do a search in any popular search engine to figure out how (it's easy)
