Thats strange that it worked for awhile and stopped. Ok lets try this from your computer go to the command prompt and type in ipconfig and hit enter. Write down all the information thats shows up in there and then manually configure your Ps3 with the information your wrote down.

With a static IP you have to specify the DNS server IP too.

There are a few possible reasons why you are having problems with a connection that used to work reliably. Troubleshooting through forum responses is slow of course. You must try one solution at a time until you find the trouble source and remedy.

One thing I have observed in this type of situation is a user often has other devices with their IP assigned through DHCP. Then one day some other device grabs the IP usually reserved for the PS3. From then onward it is a never ending battle. Even a neighbor with a wireless computer could be using the address formerly reserved for the PS3.

So be aware that some other device might be using the IP address that was assigned to your PS3. There have been cases where the PS3 doesn't seem to want to let release its IP address and use a new one dynamically assigned to it. This could be either a software or firmware problem. Try to find out if this scenario applies to your situation. If the static IP address and manually assigned DNS address give you a working connection, there is a fair chance that something else is using the IP address formerly assigned to your PS3.
