Hey, just wondering if anyone can help me out with this.
Basically I can't sign in. I haven't been able to for ages and its rather annoying.
When I turn my PS3 on it says 'signing in' but never does. I run an internet connection test but it fails to obtain my IP address. It was working fine before.. now it wont :( Its connected wirelessly the same as everything else, laptop, PSP and Wii etc. and they work fine. When I try to set up the connection again it still fails to obtain the IP address.
Now, when I go into "Settings and Connection Status List" it shows my IP address! with (Private Networks Only) under it. Im not sure if thats of any relevance or not? Sometimes when I go on this it says "automatic" at first, and then after a short wait the IP address comes up... so Im not sure what's going on :(
Any help in finding a solution would be greatly appreciated! :)
try with a network cable attached to your router and have network settings on ps3 set to automatic where possible
if this works then the ps3 is correctly receiving an ip address from your router
then you want to assign an ip address to your ps3 on the router, then stick your ps3 into the dmz of your router, re-run the connection test on the ps3 and make sure you get nat 2 and bobs your uncle
Thanks for the reply's guys :)
Im unable to connect the PS3 directly to the router and restarting it doesn't seem to work :(
I don't understand why it doesn't work when everything else does?..
reboot the router
try with a network cable, the wireless card inside the ps3 might have failed, its gonna be a process of elimination
remote play is where the psp connects to the ps3 wirelessly through the wireless access point that is on the router, it does not connect directly to the ps3
if your ps3 cannot connect wirelessly to the router then remote play will not work
Try assigning a static (manual) IP address to the PS3. Also, check the settings of your router. It could be that the router is assigning the same IP to different items which is causing a conflict.
Before doing that, have you tried turning off all other wireless devices and then turn on the ps3?
find out what your isp dns settings are, these should be 2 ip addresses, enter these into the ps3 network settings and see if that works
who is your isp?
Have you had any luck?
I have the same issue wired or wireless.
With router or a dedicated modem connection
I have this problem swell.
I moved house a few weeks ago and I go from wried to wireless concution and whenever i go to do the settings test i get throw it all but at the end it comes up saying obtain ip address failed.
wat sould i do.
laptops and computer all work its just the ps3 which doesnt
@davey23, I was not going to correct you but your example private IP address is bugging me. Addresses starting with 169 (and followed by 254) are not private. Its an APIPA, an automatically assigned IP address when no DHCP is found. Also, the 169.254.0.1 - 169.254.0.254 (APIPA) range is reserved for Microsoft; thus meaning the PS3 will not get an address in this range, even if it cannot find a DHCP.
I think are more accurate example of private IP addresses are 192.168, 10.10 or 172.16.
