Any one out there able to help with this? I can't for the life of me figure out why this wont work (following the video on youTube about this here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp5oGMow ... re=related
To cut a long story short, my PC connects to my router over WIFI. Sadly, WIFI on the PS3 is crap, so I always used ethernet. My PS3 has been re-located, and is to far for my ethernet leads to reach, but it's very close to my PC. I wanted to run a shorter lead from the PS3 into the ethernet port on my PC so I can still use the PS3 online.
I assume I have the settings right (as follows):
Router (Netgear DGND3300 V2): 192.168.1.1
DNS 1: 188.8.131.52
DNS 2: 184.108.40.206
Router has DHCP enabled, as well as UPnP.
The WIFI card un-bridged connects to this router happily, and is assigned an IP address etc etc. The ethernet port at this point shows as disconnected.
I highlight both connections, right click and choose to make a bridge. It thinks about it for a few secconds, and it's enabled. My internet on the Pc still works afterwards, so it must still be routing correctly.
I then turn on the PS3, and set it to ethernet mode and to grab all settings itself. It's this I can't get to work, as it says it could not get an IP address. No bother, so I go and configure all IP's manually instead (still with us??? lol). Everything then looks like so:
Router: as above
Network bridge on PC: IP address is 192.168.1.104, DNS as per router settings, gateway is 192.168.1.1
PS3: Ip address is 192.168.1.103, DNS as per router settings, gateway is 192.168.1.104 (I also set this to 192.168.1.1 but it also failed)
The PS3 connects to the PC this time, but then says it can't connect to Playstation Network because of an error in the DNS. Does anyone have a clue as to what I am doing wrong???
I also connect the Xbox 360 into the 2nd ethernet port (it's part of the bridge), and assigned it IP address 192.168.1.106 with the rest of the details as per the PS3, and that connects to the internet just fine.
