Simple enough. Your PS3 is trying to use the same IP as your computer. Try this:

Go to Start, Run, type in cmd. Then type in:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Or alternatively, with your PS3 still hooked up and on, reboot your computer.

Of course, I should first ask, how are you connected to the Internet? Are you using a router, hub, etc? That can make a difference.

In theory your router will now assign an IP address to whichever PC or Ps3 is connected (router treats both as a PC or internet device) so you shouldn't have the problem again.

Without knowing the router you are using I can't help further.

Your router manual should give you instructions on how to assign a dedicated IP address to a specific device(if it proves neccessary) ie your PC will have it's own and so will your PS3. Routers as a norm have 99 IP addresses to assign so the problem should not surface again.

As an example I have 3 PC's connected via a Belkin router the Router IP address is 192.168.2.1 That is the address of every Belkin Router but not my IP provider, so no security risk in putting it here.

My main PC uses 192.168.2.2 and the last figure changes with each PC. If you do nave future problems just unplug the power from your router and reboot it and it should sort it out itself.

You can assign a static IP to your computer if need be.

Each system gets an internal IP address from your router.
If you hibernate/sleep your system this may cause IP conflicts because the system will remember the old IP address when it's hibernated/asleep - but the router will be free to reassign the address.

Not sure how the PS3 works, but suspect that it's something similar.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
