Hi, I hope someone can help as I've hit a wall and my modem manufacturer has gone strangely quiet

I have a ZyXEL P660 HWP router with homeplug av/powerline built in, and a pair of newlink nl-hp 200 homepug adapters, with automatic set up enabled, neither the ps3 or the xbox will find the network. i cna manually input the ip address of the router and the ps3 finds the connection, but i dont know how to find the dns and this is a requirement of the manual set up.

can anyone help?

Click on Start button > Run > and Type command cmd > Press enter key

C:\>ipconfig /all

Towards the bottom of the list will be your DNS

Are you able to connect a computer to the internet/network when using the home plugs?

Is it just the PS3 & xbox that arnt connecting? (also is this an xbox 360 or an old xbox)
