PS3 Connection Problems
  • So...I'm new to this site and have already found loads of useful information. :)

    I have connected to the internet before with a wired connection. I don't keep it connected because i have to run a long cable until I get a router....blah blah blah.

    It has been a few months since I've connected and I tried tonight and when I run the Internet Connection Test it fails to obtain an IP address before it times out. The troubleshooting guide refers me to my ISP for connection settings. I LiveChat'd comcast and she gave me a link that really only applies to computers. How can I get this going?

  • If it's a direct connection to the modem the simplest solution is to simply power down the modem for about 30 seconds and then plug it in again. Chances are the problem is a simple matter of Comcast not freeing up the IP address your computer was given at the time- the modem thinks it is still connected to the computer.
