Unfortunately I just can't get them to work cohesively.
The solution is to not use the bridge but create an additional subnet for PS3 and PC wired connection. To enable Internet for PS3 one can use Internet connection sharing (ICS) on the PCs wired NIC which will enable router, DNS-proxy and DHCP-server on the PC (only on that NIC!). One can then make automatic IP-setup on PS3.
this was mentioned in the post and seems to be how you remedied it zomgheals? I don't know how to setup an additional subnet though (network knowledge is fairly average).
For the static IP setup, I used:
- Local Area Network 2
Gateway 192.168.1.99 (router IP)
- Wireless USB Connection
Allowed ICS, ticked all boxes, set it for Local Area Network 2
is there anything here you can see I've done incorrectly?
(note: once I unplug the cable from the PS3 my net returns, so it must be something in the numbers I've input right...?)
Cheers for the help
