If you are connected directly to the modem, then you need to change the settings on the ps3 to use DHCP to get it's info. If you are connected to a router, you can use a static IP address or DHCP (if your router is configured for it). If you use a static IP address, you will also need to fill in the DNS entries.

It doesn't ask you for a DHCP host name anywhere. Either your ISP will be running a DHCP server or your router will. If you set the PS3's network to automatic it will automatically try to locate a DHCP server.

Without you giving the details of your network setting, there is no way to give specific answers. if you want specific amswers, answer these questions.

Do you use a router?
If yes, what network addresses are you using?
Do you have DHCP enabled in the router?
Do you have UPnP enabled?
Are you assigned network info from your ISP or did they give you a static address?
If you are supplied static addresses, what is the address and what DNS servers were assigned?

In short, the easiest way to set up your ps3 is to make sure your router is automatically assigned info from your ISP, make sure DHCP is turned on in the router, and that UPnP is enabled in the router. if you have these 3 things, you can simply pick AUTOMATIC from the ps3 setup and it will work.

If this still sounds vague to you, then you do not have enough technical experience to be setting up a ps3 and need someone else that can be there on site helping you.

thanks buddy sorry about earlier ive just been having to deal with this problem for months now. im tryin to use a modem for w wired connection. idk if dhcp or upnp is enabled the guy from the internet provider was real vague about the setup didnt give me numbers or anythinh i basically just went ot internet website and typed in confirmation code.
but what i can tell u is i tried typing in the ip address, subnet mask, dns servers, dhcp servers, and perhaps default gateway into ps3 settings in custom mode, i found this info from the network settings on my computer, and since two weeks ago they havent changed jus checked them. and the ps3 still cant find ip address. i think the static addresses u asked are what i was just talked about they have never changed. never had problem with internet connecton on computer also except one time but everyone in my apartment did also so i think it was the company. hope this helps

You might be able to use some of the PC settings in the PS3, but not all of them. IP addresses are unique and no two devices on the same network can use them.

When you checked your computer settings, was the computer set to "automatically obtain an ip address" and "automatically obtain DNS"? If so, there is a good chance you can use the automatic setting on the ps3. You will still need to be sure that UPnP is enabled in the router/modem for it to work.

The aoss button is a feature where you would go into your ps3 network settings to setup internet connection and press on Automatic and then you would go and press the AOSS button on your router and it should sync. If you are using DHCP and wired connection to the router it should connect. If you are trying to stream, it may not stream properly. I think the new updates messed that up. I used to be able to use Tversity to stream and now I can't even get it to play a movie from the computer because of freezes.
