Hi all, until a few days ago i had my ps4 hard wired and it was working perfectly. now, i cant connect to the internet at all via a LAN cable as I get the error "LAN cable not connected" or it fails to get an IP address.
I have scoured the internet and cannot find a solution at all. the ethernet cable is brand new and works on other machines like my laptop. my internet is on, and the ps4 can connect through wifi. why cant I connect through a LAN cable anymore? its driving me mad.
Solved! Go to solution
Done that for him :)@TheLordPegasus
Hello I really need help my ps4 will not accept the lan cable no matter what I do I even bought a new lan cable cat 5 but still says lan cable not connected it
Your one of the smartest guys ik
So how do ya know if you are on wifi or lan connection? Since I hardwired it seems a lot better but there's the question of how do I know if im actually using cable or wifi is there something to show this in settings?
Hey, @mark_g33 ! I tried what you said but it comes up with a screen saying Automatic Manual and PPPoE? My brother told me the setting to put but when I do “test internet connection” it says “failed to obtain IP address” what should I do?
Guys we solved it!
We tried everything with this situation for two weeks. Problem solution is like that. On your ps4 there is a one LAN port located on back side. In that port there is two steel pins (color grey) left and right side of the port. Use thin stick and pull out little bit. But do not pull out more. Than pull in your cable in port (sound click) after that trun on your ps4 and dont touch your cable. Leave it like that. Now it works properly. It dosent disconneted for long time. So this iste solution guyss:)
