I have been trying to set up internet access on my ps3 through the gateway modem. What is the secret ??? I have tried everything! Ps3 can obtain ip address then fails on the internet connection. Can anyone Help?
Are you able to log into the router 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.1.1 If so log into the router with admin/password that should be the default unless changed by technician
1 go into the connections section
2 go to the wifi tab
3security mode WPAWPA2-PSK(TKIP-AES)
4Network password make it something secure but something you will remember
1 go to settings
2 network settings
3 Internet connection settings
4 once in just select easy===>Wireless===>Scan===>Then the SSID on your router you should see the WPA/WPA2(TKIP-AES) next to SSID select your SSID ===>then put in the WPA key you created on the router.
Thank You -CS for the information. I wish it were that easy. I have done those steps many times. Reset modem, reset modem to factory default, power cycled, and even did a factory restore on the ps3. It shouldnt be this time consuming.
I called Sony - They walked me through the setup (same thing I have been trying) only to tell me to contact the Gateway mfg to open ports and emailed me a like with the port information. I havent had the time to call. I tried to search for info on the web, but there is not much info out there (These gatways must be very new to the market)
My soulition, I am pondering, is to return the gateway back to Comcast as I am paying $7/mo for and get just a modem. Purchase my own router. I was looking at the Netgear N600 WNDR3700 & Motorola SB6121 DOCSYS 3.0 modem. I will do this after I test my ps3 at my friends house to make sure its no the problem first.
First off, you can try setting the gateway to WPA2PSK-AES, don't use the WPA/WPA2PSK (TKIP/AES), that;s meant for use with older devices that don't support WPA2, and it has issues.
Better yet, have the gateway placed in bridge mode and use your own router.
Best of all, get rid of it like you say and replace with your own cable modem and router. The only issue here is if you have Xfinity Voice service, in which case your choice of your own cable modem/EMTA is very limited.
