PS3 not connecting to Internet anymore

7 replies 2018 views Edited Dec 21, 2009

I was playing my ps3 last night online and it was fine

Then I tried to sign in this morning and it just wont connect to the router via a ethernet cable and says cant obtain IP address and iv tried to connect it with my other ethernet cable and the same thing happens

I think it may be the ethernet port in the back of he ps3 as the green light not longer turns on when the ethenet cable is plugged in

Has anyone got anyway to help me to resolve this problem ?

it might be damaged, check techical issues with the manufacturer of your router, also you can try another device to see if its your router or your ps3.

Just switch to wireless until you can get it fixed.

 

Well...that is if you have a wireless router, which I assume you do.

That's what I do when I don't have a cable available. I use wireless as a back up connection type. I don't recommend it as a permanent solution since wireless is never as good a connection as hard wired but it works in a pinch.

May be your router has a wireless connection list and your ps3 it's not there anymore...(if this option is turned on)

This can happen if the router security is raised...
Just have a look to the router logs and see if the PS3 is asking for an IP address...
