Hello, I just got my ps3 back and I have set everything up the way I think it says to but my ps3 won't obtain the IP address. It says "the key information exchange timed out" and won't go any further than that. I don't know if I should use the IP server and if I should then what do I put in? I'm not all that good all this crazy stuff and I need someones help so please I just need to know how to set up a wireless connection
I just had the same thing happen to me. The reason mine was happening was because I installed a uPNP (media link) on my network so my PS3 could stream from my computer. I was able to stream music and videos, but the PS3 wouldn't fail when trying to "obtain the IP address". So you may want to check to see if you have a similar situation where you are getting conflicting issues with the router. I would start with disabling the media server and restart the router.
I had this same problem. I was playing online then all of a sudden boom, no internet. I was still able to pick up my wireless network on the ps3, but I was unable to obtain an ip address. I decided to maybe log in to my router and check the settings there. I had already tried to unplug everything and reconnect with no luck and thought my setting might have changed or reset.
I tried something random and it ended up working like a charm! I changed which channel my router was on. Originally it was on channel 6 and I switched it channel 11. Now my ps3 is up and running at full speed!
I had the same problem for a while, Then I connected through a wired connection through my router, then whilst being still connected I then went back on the setting of the PS3 network and manuly connected to wireless connection, took out the ethernet cable and walla!!!
Your router has a CD you might just need to put in and set up wireless internet, also try this I found in a post it these two things solved my problems, "ok all you need to do is to try using WEP as ur security and I bet you it will work I had the same problem using WPA and I think the problem is that sometimes its too high a security setting and the router then blocks the ps3 access. " This was said by a user unworldlyzombie on a playstation answer board. Hope this helps :)
hi, if your ps3 is connected to internet through a router then u have to enable DMZ on router for the ip addr of ur ps3....one more important point is that if ur internet service provider is giving a private ip addr i.e. ip addr starting with 192.x.x.x or 172.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x then u wont be able to connect to internet
