Thank you
No ip means you have not successfully connected to wifi. At this point the only thing to check is the password for the network. Does other devices connect?

Ok, then ypu need to check if your wifi is broadcasting on the G band. It sounds like it is N enabled.

Contact your isp technical support amd have them verify your router is broadcasting on B, G, and N.

Here is the techincal reason: the ps3 uses the G band. The router is set up to ise N. The N band uses the G band for receive, and the N band to send. The ps3 is sending its request to the network on the G band, and the router is responding on the N band, which the ps3 cannot receive ot because it does not have the frequency equipment to receive it.


To make the change, Contact ypur isp.
