PS3 Yellow Dog Wired Connection not working
I have a PS3, Yellow Dog 5.0.2 is installed on it.
I have removed the wireless card.
Yellow Dog boots fine.
I am a known good ethernet cable connected to the wired port on the PS3.
I am able to configure the eth0 to have a valid address.
However, I can not access the network.
I am not new to linux and understand how to manually configure the ifcfg-eth0 file for a static ip address. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what the problem could be.
When I use the system-config-network utility, a wireless device seems to get configured. I have not idea how.
Any help would be appreciated.
Have you tried this aswell?
Apologies for the late reply. Busy week(nuff said). Anyways, I do have some further questions and suggestions for you if it's not to much? It does "sound" like your cable connection, router, and internet connection are in working order. I'll assume and trust your analysis since I can't see it. I'll also assume you've also tried changing the cable to different ports on your router ethernet connections.
While I was looking up your error message; it appears to be very common with the PS3. Lot's of people are struggling with it. I went to this site which had a forum explaining the frustration many of the users had to doing something similar.:
And there are so many others out there as well. Since you said the PS3 recognizes the hardware; let's assume it's a software issue. With that said; what's the LAN ip address, subnet mask, and LAN gateway ip address(the router)? Please type for review please( not any of the WAN ip's ). Do you also think their could be device it's in conflict with on your network too?
Since I'm unfamiliar with the PS3 software; does it allow you reload or upgrade it's OS or firmware(the xmb right?) without difficulty? You may need to do this. If not; then don't bother. You might end up turning that nice piece of hardware into a brick. Question: When did you buy it? Is it still under warranty? This could be a factory defect. If so, then you might have to send it back for a repair. Read at the documentation that came with it to see how Sony deals with these issues to see if it's worth it. I haven't found a clear solution as to what the problem could be but I'm still looking.
