Re: PS3 cannot obtain IP address or connect to internet

Apr 14, 2012

My brother got an xbox so i had to move my ps3 in my room and make it wireless. Then that started happening. It first told me 'the attempt to obtain an ip address timed out. Then I started putting in my ip address manually, then it couldnt connect.I tried all the stuff slurp-Eee did with same result.

It means your wireless connection between your PS3 and your wireless router is weak. Try my wireless suggestions in my FAQ.

Use the automatic network connection settings for all of your computers and consoles. If you use a manual IP address, then make sure it never overlaps with the ones given out automatically by the router. Otherwise, you get overlap and devices start to drop off your network.

I have the same problem. Until the last update my wireless has been working perfectly. Now, it either says that it can not obtain the IP address or can obtain the IP and connect to the internet, but not to PSN. My router is in the same place it's always been and my connection strength is 45%, which is actually higher than when it used to work. Please help

me too... if i use all automatic settings, my ip adress will time out... NO ERROR CODES!!!, but if i use manual my dns will error with the 2 error codes 8002ad23 and 80710102 every 15 mins and get booted off of psn... the weird thing is that i have 100% internet strength with wireless connection and it still does that. its like u have to have a manual ip with auto dns... YOU CANT DO THAT
