Connecting a ps3 to my router but disabling internet
Connecting a ps3 to my router but disabling internet –
I was wondering if there was a way to keep the ps3 connected to my linksys router but disabling it's internet access from that end. I did see a post for ps3 to pc directly but not one through a router.
I also saw that people suggested taking out the modem cable but is there some method to keeping everything plugged in but just blocking internet access through the router?
I just added the MAC address of the PS3 to the Internet access restrictions section of my router.
You sir are a scholar and a gentleman. It worked like a charm. I did have to create another mac address list for the access restriction (I couldn't figure out how to use the main one I had under wireless access). Either way it works.
blocking internet –
An easier way I found was to go into the ps3's network setup and enter random numbers for the Proxy. That blocks internet, but I can still see my media servers on my network.
or just disable auto sign on to the psn
^^This^^ It's what i did, works perfect for a wireless setup

2. also heard to enable proxy and enter random numbers... i have done that...
any other advice?
I wanted to do something similar to you but i was a bit lazy. Well give this a shot. Just give your ps3 a static IP and subnet mask and leave the gateway and DNS blank. That's what i do if i connect a PC to PC. Tell me how it goes.

Gateway will be the router you are using to access the internet.
Is there any ways for me to completely block out PSN connection, but retain the internet? I'd like to be able to surf the web with my PS3, without worrying about a secret update.
