It's having problems communicating with the server from the sound of it. Try hard wiring your router to your ps3 and then see how you go. If that solves the problem then you may have to look at setting up port forwarding on your router

What Does playstation 3 error code 80710723 mean?

In fact, this is a system update error. What this means is that the error is caused when something goes awry during a system software/firmware update, or whilst you are attempting to update/download a game. We know this because it belongs to the "80x" family of error codes, which signify connection and network based errors on the PS3. Basically, something has gone wrong while you were updating your console.

A common factor behind this is a faulty Internet connection. Typically, this occurs on consoles that are connected to the update network via a wireless connection; wireless is much less reliable than an actual hard-wired connection as it can be interrupted relatively easily. Therefore, you are much better off to use a wired connection to avoid the PS3 error 80710723. Also, you may have to reset your modem/router.

Many gamers find that the problem can be resolved by firstly switching to a wired Internet connection, and secondly disabling the "media server" option in the network settings menu on their PS3 console. Sometimes, the RSS setting must be disabled too.

You can see the instructions for fixing this error in more detail by clicking the following link, where you will learn exactly what you need to do to fix the PS3 error 80710723. Don't pay someone else to do the job for you; do it yourself and save both money and time.

The playstation 3 does not work with certain games saying there is an error on the router (error code: 80710723) How can we open more ports on the router? Thanks for your help

Generally what happens is that progress will stall whilst you are trying to update the firmware or software/games on your PS3, causing it to be corrupted. Your console is then unable to function properly, and you are left trying to "pick up the pieces" as it were. The PS3 error 80710723 is one of these system update errors, and is often experienced by gamers who use wireless connections to update their firmware or games.

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.

  1. In your System Options/Network Settings you need to go and disable a setting called "media server". Doing this has been reported to fix the PS3 system update error in a number of different cases.
  2. If you are using a wireless network connection then switch to a wired connection and attempt to update your console. Wireless connections can have interference, or fail from time to time. Therefore it is better to use a wired Internet connection where possible.
  3. As a last ditch resort you can actually download the update from the Sony website onto your PC, then load that update onto a USB stick and plug it into your PS3 and carry out the update process from there. However, it is best to actually try and fix your connection problems first.
