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.

When i ran the internet connection test it says obtain ip address it says failed so now what do i do


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.

Tried connecting my ps3 with the wi fi . It obtains ip address successful but fails to connect to the internet . It says dns error 80710102.


Go to the PS3 Network Setup, choose "Manual".
Leave the option for DHCP under "automatic", and under DNS servers, manually add:

208.67.222.222 or/and
208.67.220.220


These are the IP addresses for the Open DNS project and now your PS3 will be able to resolve internet addresses.

Try swapping the ends of the ethernet cable between your PS3 and the router. Otherwise, try a different ethernet cable. Also check that there are lights on by your ethernet port on the PS3 and the router.

Ip address wont work on ps3 anymore


It is likely your internet connection is not working properly.

Unplug your modem, router, PC, and power down your PS3.

Plug in your Modem.
Wait for it to run it's full diagnostics.

Plug in your router and let it do the same.

Power on your computer and let it obtain an IP address.

Then re-try your PS3.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Hello,

Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,
