two ps3's on one router

4 replies 184 views Edited May 12, 2013

My problem is, this... My PS3 is hard wired to my router, my son's is wifi. We are not able to play COD BO2 on line together in the same lobby. We can play with others on BO2  all over the world just not in the same lobby together. Has anyone had this issue and if so what was the soluition? Thanks in advance

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

From reccolection I think one of the PS3's has to have a static IP address because even though one PS3 is hard-wired & the other using w-fi they are both running from the same router & as such both have the same IP address, one of the PS3's will require a static IP address.

 

I hope this helps.

Specifically, the PS3s have to have different IP addresses.  All devices connected to the same broadband modem share the same public IP address, because the ISP only provides one public IP address per modem.  The private network addresses (192.168.0.0/16 network usually) given out by the router are not visible to Internet servers.  The Internet servers only see the one IP address that is given to the router itself. Black Ops 2 uses the IP address to tell different PS3s apart in a lobby and online match.  In order to have two PS3s in the same house play that particular game together, they would have to be connected to different broadband modems.  You can get a second broadband modem from your ISP in most cases.

You have to use Custom Internet connection settings, but as I said in my previous post, it won't help if both PS3s are connected to the same router; because the game servers will see both PS3s as having the same address.  Your ISP only assigned one public Internet address to each modem at a time.
