Playstation 3 not Connecting to Wireless Internet. PLEASE HELP

12 Replies 1,624 Views Created 16-07-2011

Hello,

 

All of a sudden my ps3 slim doesn't connect to the internet. If i go to the Internet Connection Settings and then go to Easy - Wireless - Type in my SSID - Type in my WEP Key 100% correctly it just says: Checking network configuration... Please wait. for ages and then says: "The attempt to obtain the IP address timed out. The WEP key you entered may not be correct." Even though it is.  So instead I did   Internet Connection Settings - Custom  - Wireless -  Typed in my SSID and WEP Key and then did Automatic for IP address, DNS Setting and MTU and When i do a test the "Obtaining the IP address Fails.

 

WHAT IS GOING ON?!

Just turn it off for approximately 1 minute and turn it back on again.

 

If that doesn't work your router may have a reset button which you can use to set the router up again, that may help.

There is a standby button on the modem and that's it. I'm not sure whether to press it as I do not want to muck up my Internet settings as it is working fine on my laptop.

Dont think a system restore will do much mate, i think its either a router or PS3 connectivity problem.

 

try pulling the plugs out of the actual router for a minute or so and see what happens.
