    Please clarify your problem.

    Try resetting your modem and internet connections:

    Turn off PS3 system..
    1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
    2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
    3: Turn on PS3 system.
    4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
    5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
    6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)

    Be sure to choose "Wireless" when configuring the settings if you are using wi fi for connectivity.

    dns error for ps3

    O.K. I had just had that little problem out of nowhere 2 days ago! First off Reboot the Modem, then the Router. When they are done turn on the PS3. In the PS3 Menu go to the 2nd Row from the Left and Down to Network Settings. Choose your setup Wired or Wireless. Choose DHCP and AUTO all the way through. If you are Wireless you will need your CODE! When done wait a minute then run the Network test right below in the Menu. You should be Good! This should reset your Network Automatically!
