[Answered] Modem settings to play PS3 online help?
I have DSL and connect my modem to my ps3 with a ethernet cable, but then I get error 80028EA8 when I try connecting to it on PS3 , it finds the IP adress but it fails on internet, what do I need to change on 192.168.1.1 ( my westell modem settings ) for it to be able to connect to my ps3?
I used to be able to just plug my ethernet cable into my ps3 but few weeks ago I accidentally reset my modem , had to get a new password from verizion (forgot my old one) etc. and now I don't what to do to my modem settings so that it lets me play ps3
is that a router you're using? it has a 192.x.x.x IP which isnt normal for just a modem. if you're moving this device ethernet from a pc to say a modem you need to unplug both power and ethernet and then connect it to ps3.
You can set a static IP outside the DHCP range and still work fine - that's just the IP pool the router will assign from when a device requests an address (set to DHCP). I'd set it outside the range to be sure that he's not duplicating an IP.
It seems your modem has a router built in. Are you accessing this forum through the modem? Is it just your PS3 having issues? Try manually assigning DNS addresses in your PS3 to 192.168.1.1 to force it to the gateway and see what happens, but as barrybarryk said if you just set the PS3 to automatically detect all network settings it should pull all the required addresses.
