Signing in to playstation network with an Ethernet cable connected to my laptop

5 replies 167 views Edited Nov 17, 2012

Hi! I have a problem when trying to connect my ps3 to the internet. The only way I can do this is by using an Ethernet cable due to the nature of my internet connection. I set it up abut a moth back and it was working fine, but recently when I try to sign in it isn't working and when I test the connection it says that the attempt to obtain an IP address timed out. Why is this? Can anyone help?

I'm not very good with techy stuff, but yeah I connect the ps3 directly to my laptop. My connection is a wpa connection (wireless). When I hit easy it says media server discnnected, then checking netwrk configuration and then it says attempt to obtain ip address timed out.
