well im only 13 but i know computers. please dont underestimate me. im having a problem with my LAN (Local area connection). it keeps saying limited or no connectivity. i look it over and its not receiving packets . it started Apr 11, 09' when i was doing my everyday schedule and it happened to be the bad day. i just got my new modem so i plugged the ethernet cable into the ps3. turned it on and NO CONNECTION SPECIFIED! so i try to set it up and it said PLEASE INSERT ETHERNET CABLE! it was already plugged into the ps3 though. so i switch it arround and go to my old modem and BAM connected! a i get done playing online so i turned the ps3 off. i go to play superscape but no connection. so i plugged my old modem back in and again LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY and im like ? so i look and it wasn't receiving packets but sending like christmas cards at christmas! so after 2 hours i gave up and try wireless. so i search for signals and get a good one. connected to superscape and when i got tired i went to bed.

What exactly is your setup, you have a pc and ps3 connected to a router, or just one at a time connected to a modem??

Have you tried a different cable for the wired connetion and you are putting in the correct WEP/WPA key for the wireless?

yes it used to be 1 for each, after i tried both, it wouldn't work so i tried going back to 1 but still nothing. and the wireless is unblocked, it just doesn't receive packets.

You shouldn't be connecting to your neighbors wireless so we will ignore the wireless aspect.

Modems need to be registered with the ISP. Have you talked to your isp concerning the new modem?

I take it you have only a modem and only a patch cable. The cable could be damaged. Get another.

Talk to your isp concerning the modem registration and your intermittent wan failure. Does not appear to be a issue with the pc or the ps3

OK

In Device manager is the nic installed with no exclaimation point?

How do you talk to your Internet Service Provider? Usually their number is on the bill you get every month for providing broadband access to you.

So lets jump back a bit. What are you connecting these "modems" to?

who is suppling your cable?
when did it go in?
did a tech come out and setup the "old" modem?
why do you have a new modem?
when did this work and when did it stop working?
