My Playstation 3 cannot connect to the internet because it cannot locate the IP address. It says that the IP address is "Automatic". I am using a netcomm NB6Plus4W wireless modem. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Did you reset your modem?

The problem could be that your PS3 can't find the IP because your wireless router has the security on, if you want to connect, the only way is to disable the security on your router OR find out what the router's WEP key is and input that key into your PS3 when you're setting up the wireless connection.

Just log on to your router (via computer) and go to your Wireless section and then go to security. If you can't see what your WEP password is, just change it and use the same thing on your PS3.
