  1. If your directly connecting the ps3 to your adsl modem, you may need to power cycle it, to ensure it will assign the wan i.p to your ps3 and not your pc.

    If you have the pc connected to a router, then check that you have enough dhcp i.p address setup.

    If you are connected to a router, think about using static i.p address.
