[TIPS] How to connect PS4 with your PC via LAN Cable

Before that I had been searching for exact guide on how to connect these 2 devices with a single LAN cable and most of it are just half-baked guide with no exact explanation and even possibly throwing some errors after doing that. Now I'm gonna write this stuff so everyone can get the right guide on how to set it up.

Well...let's get started!

Before you want to set up PC-PS4 connection over a single LAN cable, make sure that you have:

1. A PC and a PS4 console. Both devices must be connected with LAN cable first!
2. A wifi connection on your PC.
3. A LAN Cable (any kind of LAN cable, best performance use Cat 6 cable or better)
4. An adequate time to do it.
5. A working functional brain.

Here's how to do it:

1. First of all, open up [Network & Internet Settings > Change Adapter Options] in Windows OS to make changes of the adapter. Then, right-click the wifi adapter which is your primary connection that used to connect to the internet and click Properties. Then, go to Sharing tab and enable Internet Connection Sharing as shown on the picture below:

Also, make sure that you are selecting the right adapter name by selecting the LAN adapter name if the box with adapter name appears when you have multiple LAN or/with VPN connections carries virtual LAN adapters.

2. Right-click the LAN adapter and click Properties and select [Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) > Properties]. You will need to enter the IP address like this below:



3. Then, boot up your PS4 and go to [Settings > Network > Set Up Internet Connection > Use a Lan Cable> Custom] and select IP Address Settings to Manual. Then, input IP address as shown on the picture below:



Then, other settings should be followed as below:

> MTU Settings : Automatic
> Proxy Server   : Do Not Use

After that, perform internet connection test to check whether your PS4 is connected to your PC. If the test is success then congratulations...you have set up the PS4-PC connection via the LAN cable. Now you can use it for using it with Remote Play app or something else.

Note: If you found some difficulties of reconnecting it back on the second day after that, you might need to reconfigure it all again from the start or just follow this guide here instead.
