Hi, need your help please,
Just got a ps3 and been trying to connect to the net. I have a pc which is connected to net via a cable modem provided by Virgin media, I have cable internet. So I bought a Belkin 10/100 network switch box to share the internet connection between pc and ps3. I connected the cable from modem to the switch box then connected another 2 cables to the switch, one going to the pc and the other to ps3. While Iam connected to the internet on pc I cant seem to connect to the net on my ps3, just keeps failing to connect, but if I switch off pc and switch modem off then back on and then try and connect with ps3 it connects ok but then if I switch on pc the pc cant connect to internet. I thought the network switch would allow both devices to use the internet. What Im i doing wrong here?? Please help if you can.
Hi TTDegs, Thank you for the reply, have taken down the information from my pc, The IPV4 number is the same as the default gateway except for the last 3 numbers, theres only 1 number at the end of the gateway. and the DNS numbers are the same except for 1 number in each is different. Settings for the PS3, the IP address is different then that of the pc and it says private network only under it, the primary and secondary DNS both say automatic and there was no default gateway listed. I think I chose the auto set up when I first tried to connect and can't remember if pc was on at the time, probably was. What do I need to do now? leelee
Hi. ok I have gone through what you said but when I edit the IP address on the ps3 and then enter to confirm, it doesn't allow me to continue, there is no arrow to show that I can continue just an arrow indicating to go back, and when I go back one I have three options again for IP settings, Automatic, Manual and PPPoE, if I chose automatic then it allows me to continue but on Manual I cant continue after that.
actually just been checking things again and going to the manual set up for the IP address settings there is 5 lists of details, IP address, subnet mask, default router, pri dns, 2nd dns, I changed IP address ie increased last three numbers by a few digits, didn't touch subnet mask its set at 255 255 255 0, changed the dns number as you said but the default router is all 0, when I go to edit them then an arrow appears for me to continue, so I obviously need to put some details in for the default router, any ideas.
what is my DEFAULT ROUTER I NEED HELP PLEASES??????
I have exact same problem. Bought a Linksys Etherfast 10/100 Workgroup Switch, because Modern Warfare 3 sucks through router, even when setting up port forwarding on router for MW3 ports AND setting PS3 to static IP.
Anyways so I have a Time Warner Cablle Modem I connect it to port 1 of new switch, then I connect port 2 to PS3 and port 3 to rotuer which goes to PC, DirecTV and other crap.
Router and devices attached to router such as PC gets Internet fine, PS3 however only gets Internet if I disconnect port 3 going to router.
I did try following above steps to manually setup IP, Default Router set to same as PC Gateway IP, and DNS to 8,8,8,8 and 8,8,4,4. When doing the Connection Test I get the IP fine, but no Internet. It says there is a DNS error.
I have lag problem with MW3 and Black Ops, as they are both based on same technology after Infinity had to update their network code after all the MW2 cheaters.
No I turn off my computer so nothing else is downloading, while trying to play MW3 and Black Ops.
