It tells me to "Go to [Settings] > [Network Setting] and check your settings."

 

But they are all right

What is your PS3 connecting to? A router/modem? A computer?

Is it a wired connection, or wireless?

If it is connecting to a computer, is Internet Connection Sharing enabled on that computer?

We can't work without information. You need to be diligent about providing enough information for us to help. Nothing begets nothing.

Hey Druu,
I would probably suggest contacting your local playstation support centre for some troubleshooting.

But definitely try doing a router reset.
Unplug it and turn off your console for about 5 minutes,
Turn on router first, then PS3 once all lights on router are steady

Hope this helps.

Hi Danny,

this the Austrlian/Newzealand section of the forum. You might get more relevent help from the English forum.

What is telling the IP address has timed out? The PS3?

When does it tell you this?

Are you using a wired or wireless connection to your router?

You might need to reset your router to defaults and start again, then on the PS3 go through the network setup again.

Why is a bit of a mystery but you could try logging into your router and giving the PS3 a fixed IP address. What brand of router is it?

In Australia Virgin only do mobile "broadband" so you will have trouble getting onto PSN in the first place.

Mobile broadband is not officially supported by Sony Playstation.

Some ISP supplied mobile broadband routers only allow 5 wireless devices to connect at a time.

What brand and model is your router?

 

If Virgin is giving you neither very good support nor an acceptable Internet connection I would advise to change providers and preferably get an ADSL or better landline connection.

Might I suggest:
call your ISP and get the following information off them:

IP Address
Subnet Mask
Deault Router
Primary DNS number
Secondary DNS number

and set your internet connection up manually

Any questions?
