Connecting two PS3's via crossover cable

1 Reply 1,949 Views Created 27-02-2011

Hey guys,

 

I'm trying to connect two PS3's via crossover cable, crossover cable is our only option, we cannot connect together via the internet (we're in Uni halls).

 

Both of the PS3's and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have been updated today.

 

We plug the cables in to each PS3. We then started the game and tried to play LAN party, but we couldn't see each other's games.

 

So we went to network settings and set all our IP address info the same. We then started the game, and we could see each other's game. But when the other person tries to connect to the other game, the connection just times out....

 

Are we missing something?

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

I don't think you can connect them directly to each other, if you could the fourth part of the IP would have to be different. Put a router between them.
