Okay, so Im new here on the forums but not new to the PS3. I have the 40Gb version. Ive had it quite a while and have been online up until 2 weeks ago, when i changed from a wired connection to wireless (A phone, cable TV and wireless broadband package).
I am currently with the ISP Tiscali (and always have been) and they've supplied me with a Siemens Gigaset SE587 Wireless Router. The default Gateway being 192.168.1.1.
Now believe, me I have searched high and low, all week looking for an answer. I have tried everything on other forums, Ive tried the PS3 Manuals, Ive tried PortForward.com - Everything i can think of, and yet, im still getting the same error - When i setup the connection in netowrk settings and "test connection" it scans for about 30 seconds and comes up with "'Obtain IP Address: Failed' and at the bottom of the screen: 'The key information exchange timed out'" It doesnt even get to Internet, PSNetwork UPnP etc...
My computer has been set a static IP address of 192.168.1.136 (thanks to portforward) and thus my PS3 has been set to 192.168.1.137 as it is the next device on the network.
Now I have previously followed the threadstarters advice regarding the DMZ before I joined these forums, and I have forwarded ports. I have also mixed and matched these two options, just incase they conflicted with each other. I have disabled / uninstalled any P2P software (that i rarely use anyway). I have aquired my ISP's DNS Primary & Secondary IPs, which are: DNS1 = 188.8.131.52 DNS2 = 184.108.40.206. And finally I have ensured that UPnP is activated on my Router.
When setting up on my PS3, I am entering all my information manually, as the "easy" and automatic
ways dont work either. I have set all the appropriate IPs and DNSs' (with the ones stated above) and
double checked my PS3's static IP is actually 192.168.1.137
I have run out of ideas. I dont know where to turn and I was hoping I could get some information from here.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
If you need any more info, just reply. Thanks!

I've followed exactely your instructions to have DMZ setted in my router and IP static in the PS3 network settings, but I still cannot log-in to the PSN with my account.
This is a nice issue because since I've got my PS3 I could create an account correctly because internet connection works fine in PS3 and my network is ok in my house. I have Irish Broadband in Dublin received by radio (breeze) 3Mo Down/Up (very fast) and my router is a D-Link DIR-655.
My router works as a dns releaser, my connection settings is on static IP by ISP. All pc in the network are connected without any issues. This kind of internet connection is a good one.
Here I give you more details about the interaction of PS3 and my router :
- DMZ activated on IP address of PS3
- UPnP activated in the router and PS3
- MTU in automatic on PS3, and in the router I've tried from 1400 to 1500 (rebooting every time obviously)
- ports forwarded just in case : 3658,3479,3478 UDP , 5223 TCP.
- Tried as well to dectivate SPI and firewall (no logic because DMZ lease everything on IP of PS3)
The same message is still there : THE CONNECTION WITH PSN TIMED OUT.
Sometime I get connection, but is during the night time or sometimes in the afternoon on week-ends but the error YOU'VE BEEN DISCONNECTED FROM PSN code : 8002A548 after 2 minutes appear.
I've checked with a friend that have the same type of connection in Dublin and he doesn't have any issue to log-in with a different router.
In Ireland the connection with PSN have no maintenance planned. I don't have any idea what's wrong, I have as well a XBOX360 and I never saw a lag and any issues with the connection to xboxlive.
Now 2 questions :
- Do I forget something on my router?
- Does the PSN network has too much connections and the servers cannot follow us?
Thanks in advance to tech me something new can give me a solid solution.
My PSN : flaximus

Up, sorry again,
I forgot to write that I've tried as well without router, so directly connected to the network with the ISP static address in the console (NAT1) and still nothing....

Hi, good detailed guide thanks.
Problem i'm having tho is when attempting to get my router address. I goto Start Run, type ipconfig, but the window that opens containing this immediately closes down a fraction of a second after it opens, hence i cant get the info i need.
Any ideas pls?
