The PlayStation 5 is on the market and with that arises those basic questions (or not so much) of when we started tinkering with a new device. Setting up the console internet is one of those one-off issues. So check out this tutorial on how to set up the PlayStation 5 internet manually to improve your network experience.
How to connect to the internet on PS5
One of the most important things when connecting your PlayStation 5 for the first time is connecting it to the internet. After all, this is how the console makes its system updates so that it receives more features, improves its performance and makes game updates, among other functions.
Typically when you use a cable connection, the console connects to the network automatically. The same process happens when you connect to a wireless network. This process is done not only by the PS5, but also by other devices that access the internet of your home, such as smart TVs, for example.
However, as these connections are made by the devices automatically, it is possible that at some point two devices end up receiving the same IP number on your network, generating a conflict and connection problems. This has happened to me in the past. So it is valid to be aware of the advanced internet configuration options on the PS5 to avoid this type of problem.
By setting up the internet manually, you can define many aspects of connection, which can improve your experience. Even in one of the fields you can set the console IP within your network.
You can also define aspects related to DNS and MTU that can improve your internet experience in the console. Follow the step-by-step how to set up the PlayStation 5 internet manually.
