Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This same problem happened to me awhile ago. The way I fixed it was I went under settings to network settings. Then went down to media server connection and disabled that. Once I did that I had no trouble at all updating games. Hope this helped :)

I too went into "network settings" on my PS3 and disabled the "media server" connection. Worked like a charm!

Just wanted to say disabling the media server connection worked like a charm for us too with COD Modern Warfare 2 Thank you so much!

This is a common error. Check you network connection setting on you PS3. That should tell you the ip you are using. To enable DMZ log into your router through your browser ussually to do this the address is http://192.168.0.1/. You will be asked a password and username. Most cases it is "admin" and password is left blank unless someone has changed it. Also with your PS3 connected the router will tell you the assigned ip address under wireless connections.

What I did to stop this error was to go from my wired connection to the wireless connection and during the setup I disabled UPnP and I was able to complete the system update that I was needed to Play COD5.

This worked for me, I just bought my ps3 on 30/12/09 and it would not link to my wireless network even when it found my wireless network (netgear) with the network key entered. I began to scratch my head looked on the internet and gathered some ideas, now I'm no network nerd but this is what I did- firstly you'll need to beg borrow and steal an Ethernet cable plug it into your PC or already connected wireless laptop and internet, then plug it into your PS3, then scroll across to settings and then system update you will then download straight onto your PS3 with software version 3.15. I guess there is some kind of fix for wireless in there and now it connects to the internet as it didn't before.

SOURCE: ps3 wont update error 80710723
be carreful about newer updates....sometimes this hot releases comes with problems...i think wait should be the correct decision...then if nobody got problems with it..try the updade as well.
Check out the cables of your internet conections and if your pc is acting like a server and sharing internet connection maybe the firewall is blocking your PS3 update... Good Luck!

Your PS3 is not downloading updates because you need to deactivate the "Media Server
Connection" under Network setting.

So how can you fix PS3 system update error? Here are a few steps you can take to try and fix the 80710723 error code yourself.
