    I found this tutorial, which allows to go online with the ps3 with an old firmware on it.

    Is this also possible to do this settings manually in tomato, so that i don't need that simple dns program on my pc?

    Would be great, if you could help me.

    Here is the tutorial:

    1) Download the SimpleDNS software from

    2) Run SimpleDNS (you don't have to reboot despite the installer telling you to..), click on the Records button

    3) In the records window, click on Tools > Quick Domain Wizard

    4) for domain name enter:

    for Web server IP enter
    delete the Secondary DNS name entry, you do not need it

    5) Now that you have your new server added, you need to add A Name entries so the ps3 gets redirected on the firmware requests, to do this simply right click and choose New Host Address (A-Record)

    6) we need to add two A-Name entries, depending on what region you are in. You can add as many as you'd like if you want to cover your bases though

    For the us, we need and

    So, In the host address window, enter for Record name, and for IP Address, set the Time To Live to 999 days. Repeat this for

    7) your end result should be a setup similiar to this, once done simply close the records window in SimpleDNS so that it is back at the activity window

    8) On your playstation 3, go into internet settings and enter manual setup and set your PS3's DNS server entry for the IP of the pc on your lan which is running SimpleDNS, then away you go!
