    i just got a ps3 and what it boils down to is that i cannot use the ps3 and my macbook on my wireless network at the same time. i have the late 2008 unibody 2.0 macbook. each plays nice with the network individually but as soon as i try to connect to the internet on both at the same time they crap out and i get the "your computer is not connected to the internet" error message in safari and a similar message on my ps3.

    i tried researching it online and all i could find is that the routers dns server could possibly be issuing the same ip address to both units and this could be causing the problem, seeing as you can't have the same ip address twice on a given local network. i've done all the basics like restarting each machine, disconnecting and reconnecting etc and it doesn't seem to work.

    any help would be greatly apprciated!!

    I don't think the router's DNS portion is issuing the IP address, DHCP maybe. You might have an with your router. Safest bet is to flash the firware on your router and start over. Also, check to ensure you haven't messed with the wireless filtering etc. Your router might be on its way out or a configuration issue.

    before flashing anything, make your not using the same ip, make sure your router is not using static ip, make sure its dhcp
