IPv4 keeps changing

Postby wflo927 » Fri Sep 27, 2013 11:41 pm

Hi everyone,

I think i'm having a slight problem with my media server's ip address. It keeps changing.

Sometimes it will be 192.168.1.27 and if i reboot my computer it changes to 192.168.1.24 etc etc.

I was following the tutorial that tells me to setup the PS3's IP to be one octet higher (ie, if my computer is 192.168.1.27, then I set my PS3 ip to 192.168.1.26). The problem seems to be that since my computer's ip keeps changing, I'm forced to manually re-enter a new PS3 IP address. If i don't manually change it, it seems like the PS3 and the media server do not see each other. Can someone point me in the right direction? I'd like to keep my IPv4 from changing.

FYI, my PS3 is on a wired connection to the router. My main PC is on a wireless connection (it's upstairs).

Thanks in advance!

Based off your post, there's no reason for you to force any IP addresses.
If you're having issues getting your PS3 and PC to connect, follow the FAQ - viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3507&p=32731#p34933
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
