If you are connecting through your wireless router, you should just let it auto obtain an ip address and auto obtain dns. Is DHCP on in your wireless router?
DNS is the ip address of a server that resolves names like www.something into an ip address. Your ISP usually gives you these numbers.


dns=domain name system

Error code 52130, trying to hook up to the wireless internet. Any Suggestions?


Error Code: 52130 The Wii is unable to connect to the Internet
Likely cause: The wireless router is incorrectly connected, or the Wii console will need a DNS manually entered.
How to fix: Check the way your router is connected; manually assign a DNS to the Wii.
  1. Check the connections to your wireless router:
      Even if you are able to get a working Internet connection to your computer through the wireless router, if it is not properly connected to the modem, the Wii and other devices may not be able to use it.
    • Most routers have five (5) ports on the back. Typically there is a set of four, with a single port either farther away from the rest, or separated with a different color border or line. This single port is often labeled "Internet" or "INT." Make sure the cable coming out of your modem is plugged directly into this "Internet" port, and not into one of the other four that are grouped together.

  2. Manually change your Wii console's DNS settings. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Access the Wii system settings (how to), and use the right arrow twice and select "Internet."
    2. Select "Connection Settings," and choose the connection file (1, 2, or 3) that are you are currently using.
    3. Select "Change settings" and click the right arrow 3 times to reach "Auto-Obtain DNS."
    4. Select "No," and choose "Advanced Settings."
    5. Click into the "Primary DNS" field and enter: 8.8.8.8
    6. Click into the "Secondary DNS" field and enter: 8.8.4.4 Select "Confirm," and then "Save."
    7. Select "OK" to start the connection test. Once the test finishes, try to download the update again.
  3. If you are still getting this error code after trying the steps above, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

Problem with the Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection


Try changing your DNS settings on the PS3 or on the router
Changing the DNS on your router: Go to 192.168.1.1 Default password is: admin Static DNS1: 208.67.222.222 Static DNS2: 208.67.220.220
Those DNS setting are from OpenDNS
After doing this, reconnect your PS3 to the router and set it to Automatically adjust the settings. Once you have reconnected, check if you are still having the DNS problem.
If you are still experiencing the problem, try changing the DNS directly from the PS3 Go to Internet Connection Settings and set everything to Auto except DNS When asked if you should set the DNS automatically, choose "Manual" Input the same DNS settings: Static DNS1: 208.67.222.222 Static DNS2: 208.67.220.220

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 .

CAN"T SIGN IN TO XBOX LIVE


You might not have been banned. Not being able to connect to the DNS or having it fail can be caused by a few things:
The DNS address serves couldn't be reached
The info on the DNS server couldn't be snagged from your ISP or the DHCP server
The DNS values in the dashboard are wrong.

I don't want to come off like I am insulting your intelligence, but check your internet connection to make sure you have the ability to connect. I'm sure it is all in proper order. So the next thing you need to do is check to see if you IP is set and passes all the tests. If it isn't then you can click the more link on the test page to follow the directions on how to fix it.

You may also want to check out if you are using a XBOX live compatible ISP. Click on Learn More to see if you are using the right ISP or to adjust your settings. You can also check out the connectivity wizard to find out if there are some other issues revolving around this.

Still running into problems!?!?!? try running the modem directly into your XBOX. This has helped me in a few time of need.

Here are some helpful links on what you can do when your DNS fails:
