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

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?
