maybe the modem set is different from the modem in the lap top in other words maybe you ps3 needs higher and better connection

SOURCE: Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.

I had the same problem but rectified it like this ( windows XP):

open Control Panel and click on Networks Connections. Then click on your internet service provider connection. In 'general' click on 'properties' and then go to 'Advanced'. On the 'Internet connection sharing' tick 'Allow other network users to connect through this internet connection. In the same box click on 'settings' and tick 'DNS'.

I hope this helps.

It's connected to your router, right? If not, it's trying to talk to your internet connection box, and it is not getting an answer.

Cant connect to psn. But i can to internet. :(


One reason this may be happening is having the media sharing option on. Some routers can't handle all the requests the ps3 sends while having this option on. You're using a wireless connection right?

the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


OK IF YOU HAVE PS3, and you get the ERROR DNS while trying to login into PSN, all u need to do is, shutdown the console, then restart it by holding down the ON button on the PS# not the controller till you hear 2 beeps, then try to login again, should work.
