    So I thought I'd got it all set to go online with my PS3...

    ...

    I got a Homeplug thang going on.

    I'm getting the dreaded "IP address not found" when going through the PS3 internet connection settings.

    I have my first homeplug connected via ethernet to my cable modem.

    I have my second homeplug connected via ethernet to my PS3.

    Now I understand no computer is hooked up here, but didn't forsee this being a problem. Or that I don't have a router.

    Anyone have some ideas???

    Thanks.

    You need a router to get that working.

    Cable modem goes to the dsl point of your router - then you attach the homeplug to switch of router and the other homeplug to your PS3.

    You need the router as it will assign a address to the PS3 via the homeplugs, assigns it a dhcp address.

    You can pick up a cheap router from PCWorld for like £30 - just make sure its a "dsl" one that is for cable.

    No, don't get a DSL one! If you tell the clowns in PC world that, you'll come back with an ADSL one.

    You want a cable router! Something like a BELKIN F5D7230UK4, or a Netgear WGR614 would do you.

    tek-nik-ly it should work in the scenario he's proposing

    but it would beg the question "how are you online then matey, if you only have the ps3 connected to the modem?"

    Oookay... cable router it is, then

    In answer to the "how am I online" thing... well, I wasn't with my compooter. I figured I would never want to be online on the Mac at the same time as the PS3 so it wouldn't matter.

    But it seems it does!

    Should I be able to grab a wired cable router pretty easily?
