PS3 Guide: Router > WIFI > Vista PC > ETHERNET > PS3

This guide is users running who will be running Kai on a computer with Windows Vista and have the following network configuration:

Your Vista PC is connected to the internet wirelessly and your PS3 is connected to your Vista PC with a network cable. See the image below.

Image

Register for XLink Kai

If you haven’t already, you will need to register an XLink Kai username (XTag) so that you can be identified while playing games. This is similar to your Playstation Network ID.

  1. Goto http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/?go=register

  2. Fill out and submit the form. You only need to be concerned with the required fields. They are marked with an asterisk (*).

  3. You will receive a confirmation email. Click the link referenced in the email to confirm your account.

  4. Goto http://teamxlink.co.uk/ and make sure you can login with the username and password you specified.


Download and Install XLink Kai version 7.3.1.7

  1. The latest version of XLink Kai does not currently work with the PS3. You will need to download XLink Kai version 7.3.1.7 from the following URL:
    http://xlink.clan-services.com/files/binary/XLinkKai-7.3.1.7-win32.msi

  2. Run the installer and use all of its default options.


Configure XLink Kai

XLink Kai has a built-in DHCP server which is used to assign an IP to your PS3 (and other gaming systems) based upon the MAC addresses found in the network cards of your PS3. It also uses a technique called Tunneling to relay data from your PS3 to other PS3s without them having to know that there is an extra set of PCs sitting between them. To do these things XLink Kai needs to be run with elevated privileges on your PC and you must use an administrator account to run XLink Kai. To configure XLink Kai to run with elevated privileges follow these steps:


  1. Click Start > All Programs > XLink Kai, right click Start Kai, choose Properties.

  2. Click the Compatibility tab.
    Image

    NOTE: If your Compatibility tab is missing, try one of the troubleshooting steps found at the following URL:
    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/182398-compatibility-properties-tab-restore-remove.html

  3. Under Compatibility mode, check Run this program in compatibility mode for, then select Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

  4. Under Privilege Level, check Run this program as an administrator. This option may be grayed if you have User Account Control disabled. This is fine.

  5. Click OK
    Configure the network card of your PC that XLink Kai will assign IP addresses through.

  6. Click Start > All Programs > XLink Kai > Configure Kai
    Image

  7. Enter your XLink Kai username (XTag) into the Default XTag field. You may also enter your password and select Auto Login so that XLink Kai signs you in automatically when you run it. I do not recommend this as XLink Kai currently stores your username and password in plain text in its configuration file.

  8. Check Auto Open Chat if it is not checked already.

  9. For Network Adapter, select the network adapter that matches the wired network port of your PC that your PS3 will be connected to. The adapter name will vary based upon the hardware in your PC so I cannot tell you exactly what to select. Look for things like “10/100”, “10/100/1000”, “gigabit”, “Ethernet”, or “LAN”. Do not choose an adapter with “wireless”, “WLAN”, “802.11”, “WIFI” or any other keywords hinting toward a wireless connection. I’ve had success with the Autodetect options but I prefer to explicitly set my configuration to reduce unexpected issues. If you choose the wrong one, you can always come back and try a different one.
    Image

  10. Click OK.



RunXLink Kai

  1. Click Start > All Programs > XLink Kai > Start Kai. If you have a software firewall installed on your PC you may receive a notice that XLink Kai is attempting to communicate with the internet. Configure your software firewall to allow XLink Kai to do so.
    Image


  2. Enter your username and password, then press enter or click the green arrow. XLink Kai will sign in and connect to a somewhat local Orbital server. I’m over 1000 miles away from Arizona but I guess that’s the closest server to me or has the least latency (assume this is based upon ping or route tracing). Every now and then I’ve been connected to a server in Canada for some reason.
    Image

  3. Click the magnifying glass icon; this places XLink Kai in Diagnostics Mode. Here you will see the port that XLink Kai is communicating on (Public Port; usually 30000) and whether or not your PS3 (or other gaming consoles) are reachable by other players (Network Reachable).
    Image

    If Network Reachable still says No after about 2-3 minutes, you may need to configure your router to forward traffic on that port to your PC.

    You can find more information about configuring port forwarding for XLink Kai by clicking on your router model at the following URL:
    http://portforward.com/english/applications/port_forwarding/Xlink_Kai/Xlink_Kaiindex.htm

    Note: After clicking on your router model at the above URL, you may see an advertisement asking you to buy something. Just click "Click here to skip this advertisement..." in the upper-right corner of the page. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY ANYTHING!

  4. Click the folder icon to switch the diagnostics view. XLink Kai will display any of your gaming consoles that it is able to detect.


Configure Your Network for Use with XLink Kai

Connect Your PS3

  1. Connect your PS3 to the Ethernet port of your PC using a network cable. The port looks like a wide telephone jack.


Configure Internet Sharing

  1. On your PC, click Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center

  2. Click Manage network connections.
    Image

  3. Right-click your Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.

  4. Click the Sharing tab and check Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection.
    Image

  5. Click OK


Configure Your PS3 to Use a Wired Connection

  1. Turn on your PS3 and then navigate to the Settings option on the main menu.
    Image

  2. Move down the list to Network Settings. Network Settings should be at the very bottom of the list.
    Image

  3. After you have selected Network Setting, move to the right and select Internet Connection Settings in the list that comes up.
    Image

  4. A short message will pop up. Press Ok to move on.
    Image

  5. Select Custom for the setup method.
    Image

  6. Next, select Wired Connection.
    Image

  7. For operation mode, select Auto-Detect.

  8. For IP Address Setting, select Automatic.

  9. For DHCP host name, select Do Not Set.

  10. For DNS Setting, select Automatic.

  11. For MTU, select Automatic.

  12. For Proxy Server, select Do Not Use.

  13. For UPnP, select Disable.

  14. Press X to confirm your settings, then press X again to test the connection. If everything is configured properly, Optain IP Adress should succeed and Internet Connection should say Failed.

Can't say that I know what your exact issue is but I'm sure I can figure it out with some more information.

With XLink Kai running, on your PS3 go to Settings > Network Settings > Settings and Connection Status List.

Let me know what shows for the following:

IP Address: Should be 10.253.x.x (what numbers show where I have the x's?)
Subnet Mask: Should be 255.255.0.0
Default Router: Should be 0.0.0.0
Primary DNS: Should be 192.168.0.1

There are probably more pieces to this issue but lets start with these.

one question first:
How must i setup my ethernet card?
My wlan card has a static ip for portforwarding.
So must the ethernet card also have a static ip?

My wlan setup:
Ip 192.168.178.20
Sub 255.255.255.0
Gate 192.168.178.1
Dns 192.168.178.1

So whats the config for the ethernet (cable) card?

Ethernet card should be set to obtain its IP and DNS settings automatically in most situations.

Also, WLAN configuration is typically not important provided that the internet can be accessed, port 30000 is forwarded, and the IP does not collide with the IP used by ICS (192.168.0.1 Vista and lower, 192.168.137.1 Windows 7)

Beyond that, the network configuration information that I need for right now are those of your PS3, not your PC.

Yes, it is possible but is a bit more difficult to set up in my opinion. To make sure I understand you, you're saying that your PC is wired to the router and you want to connect the PS3 to the PC over wifi, correct?
