My fiancee tried to get online on PS3 while i was playing black ops for the Xbox 360 and it wouldn't let her on. Is there anyway we can both go online?

That would be my guess as well.

Although if your wireless router acts as a DHCP server, I would have thought restarting the console should have been enough, and it should have automatically been given a new (and unused) IP Address.

Otherwise you can go into your wireless settings and configure a fixed IP Address, and make sure you pick a value that won't be used (i.e the last number of aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd should be at least 10 or so higher than the number of wireless devices you have using the network.

I'm unsure what the exact cause is, it's sounds like a router issue to me.

Anyhow we're talking about different things here. One thing is hide NAT (1 to n), were one public IP address gets translated to several private ones (RFC1918).

The other thing is DHCP: Any usual DHCP server keeps track of what device has what IP even if its dynamic. That's how it avoids handing out duplicates. You can still **** this up by manually setting IPs on your devices and whatnot.


Ideally you'd make a DHCP reservation and configure port forwarding.

Here's some information on how to do so:

Hope that helps.

Might be a single port router
