Ok so first of all I know this has been brought up before. In fact its how I found this awesome website :D
Heres a link to the original thread
So I am having issues connecting my PS3 to the internet. I am in a building that means I am unable to get a proper internet connection so the bane of my life is that I am on a three pay monthly contract. I have a Huawei E3526 USB dongle. I am using Windows 7.
So far I have tried changing what I assume is my internet connection to allow sharing. In Network connections it is listed as "Local Area Connection 2. Network Shared. Remote NDIS Internet Sharing Device."
My PS3 is connected to my computer via an ethernet cable. In Network Connections it appears to be listed as "Local Area Connection. Unidentified Network. Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller."
I have tried going to my PS3's internet settinsg and doing an easy connection, this results in a time out failure obtaining an IP address.
I have tried changing my settings as described in this post by sneakycyber from the link above
Set the IP address of the vista computer to static of 192.168.0.1 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0. In the start menu select run (or hold the windows key and press "R") and type ncpa.cpl. Select your wireless adapter and right click on it and Select Properties. Highlight Internet Protocol version 4 and click properties. Select the Use the following address bubble and enter 192.168.0.1 for your ip address, 255.255.255.0 for your subnet mask,192.168.0.1 for your Default Gateway. Select Use the Following DNS server address and enter 192.168.0.1 for the primary (secondary is optional but can be the same as primary) . Now you will need to assign a static IP address to the PS3. Follow this brief guide and use the ip 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, default gateway 192.168.0.1 and primary DNS 192.168.0.1 (secondary is optional but can be the same as the primary)
This resulted in my PS3 finding the IP address. Which was great. But then it failed to connect with a DNS error (80710102).
As it turns out after changing my details to the above I could no longer load websites at all on my computer . Although when I go to the Network and Sharing Center my computer tells me I am still connected to the internet. So changing the addresses seems to stop my internet from working completely.
Simply changing the IP settings back to obtain automatically does not fix the issue either, I have to enter something manually and then validate problems on exit.
If I change only the DNS to the above I still lose the ability to load websites but then I can just use the obtain automatically option and I can load websites again. I doubt these last two sentences help much as thats probably normal, but I figured I'd put it here just in case.
After some playing around I found that if I change the IP addresses on my PS3 to the static one in Sneaky's post above but leave the ones for my modem as obtain automatically my PS3 will still succeed in finding an IP address but will again fail with the DNS error.
I tried using open DNS addresses (22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 as a secondary) on my PS3 and my internet settings and no joy there either.
I hope someone can help as I have been tearing my non existent hair out trying to get this to work. The above link got me close I think, I am assuming I just need a different DNS address on my internet settings and then use the same one on my PS3, but I have no clue what to change the DNS to without stopping my internet from working entirely.
I would really really appreciate any help
