How about taking your own advice and doing the same........... Jesus and people wonder why new users tend to avoid posting question on these forums.

 

Simply pointing the OP to the tech area of the forums could have probably helped him more than 90% of the posts on here.

Most likely you entered your encryption key incorrectly, with WEP if you enter the wrong key it will connect with the access point/router but fail to obtain an IP as the encryption does not match. I would try an Ethernet cable connection first before taking it back (otherwise you waste time going to the shop and going through the hassle of swapping it then get home to find you still have the same problem.

It's possible to have your PC working but not the PS3 specially if you forgot how you configured your router with MAC filters and restrictive DHCP settings, we all do it, sitting there wondering why it doesn't work then forget you set something or it could just simply be the signal isn't strong enough... Ethernet cable to the rescue!

Maybe it's something as daft as the EA Servers were down?

 

If it was working when you played Soul Calibur, something must have happened between turning that off and playing Fifa. My guess is that you changed something in settings or the EA servers was down.

 

Have you tried going back on Soul Calibur again? Does your friends list show up?

I'd say the vast majority of people reading this post would prefer it were you who should not come on these forums again. 

What a pointless and immature post, I can only ssume you are very young.

 

Jas4 - are you hardwired to the router? If not then try that, there are so many variables with wireless so you need to get those issues out the way first.

Does the internet on your PC work? I think you might be having a problem with your internet connection and not your PS3.

What's that smiley for? I'm trying to determine if his whole internet connection is at fault or just his PS3. I understand that he's obviously on the internet somewhere to get onto the forums but that might not have been on his own internet.

BTW yes it does sound a bit stupid now that I've read it again. lol

I've never heard many cases of the PS3's internet breaking, are you 100% sure it's your PS3 and not your router/modem?

EDIT: Yeah it will be your PS3 then. God I feel stupid now. How else would he be posting on the forums? LOL :|

The reception you get is too low so the PS3 can't connect to the internet?

Well that definitely means it's not broken then. As long as it's picking up signal then it should be fine. I think the problem here is that you might something wrong or unchecked in settings. But I just don't know what.

Maybe you should just try to move your router to a better position so you get better reception.

Hmmmm I remember when members of this forum actually helped instead of ridiculing new members for something as petty as having caps lock on.... 'tis true, the internet is full of geeks who act "cool". Just have to look at the first two replies to see where this thread is going.

 

And to the OP, I have completely forgotten the question, so thats my reason for not providing an answer!

I can think of two things, 1: the signal is to low 2: You are using the same ip address for your PC and PS3, so when the PC is connected them the PS3 wont connect

Wise words and totaly true, same about what Silvernige said as well.

 

Not sure when posting things like 'Epic Fail' makes you cool or clever, i've got two words that sum up replies like that, ***** off. (I'm sure you can guess what I typed)

Go away? :P

 

Anyway, to the OP, I highly doubt that your PS3 is at fault. The only cases of the internet breaking that I have heard of is when it refuses to scan and then crashes when you ask it to. (Thats what my first did) I may be wrong though but Its probabaly your router imo.
