Online Not Working :(

11 replies 7 views Edited Nov 17, 2006
 I recently bought a ps3 (60gb version). I have ps2 and the online was not a problem as I had no trouble connecting. I have a LINK SYS router , I did all the network settings and tried different combinations but nothing works. The step where it asks for your security thing (WEP and all that other stuff) , I have no security thing so I can not enter that part and click no security blah blah blah. I dont think that should be a problem. The follow steps are a little confusing some of the things I dont understand so I just choose automatic, or enable disable or whatever. The ps3 is getting 100% signal from my router but when I test connection it says attempt to obtain an IP adress timed out and I cannot get a connection. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

im having problems getting a good connection as well, its slow with it set to automatic. i set it up like my ps2 and it gets past the ip step then fails.
 
sounds like you need to make sure that you have the ip address asigned the same on both the router and ps3.
got my ps3, but had to settle for the 20 gig :smileysad: upgraded to a 160gig hd :smileyhappy:

some things to try...

1st, under security/firewall, make sure filter internet nat redirection is not checked
2nd,  under wireless/wireless mac filter, if you have it enabled, add the ps3's mac address to the list

see if that helps any... also double check in the router to see if you are using wep/wpa/etc or not.
