device has repeatedly failed to secure the IP address
. This is usually due to a time-out
of the information exchange between the router and the game console. Here's a simple way to ensure that your PS3
device obtains an IP address, without having to do any serious reformatting.
How To Obtain an IP Address on the PlayStation 3
If your efforts to obtain an IP address with your PlayStation 3 are being met with an error message that reads, "the key information exchange has timed out," all you need to do is a simple router reset
and check of your custom options
The first step is to switch off
. Wait about 30 seconds before switching the router back on.
Next, take a look at your connection settings

option, choose Custom
Allow your device to select everything automatically, including your DNS
server and IP address.
