Well, I'm not completely sure how to help exactly. This problem sometimes prompts as "DNS" error followed by an error code. If it displays a DNS error, then your problem is that the PS3 cannot find the modem (and router if you have it connected that way).
DNS errors on the PS3 simply means that it cannot find (see) the modem/router.
One way of correcting this would be to reset your modem (and router if you have it connected that way)by unplugging it (from wall and power port). Keep it unplugged for 1 minute or so. Power down your PS3 at the same time.
Plug in your modem (and router if you have it connected that way) and allow for it to reset.
Now power on your PS3 and go to the network settings and establish a new wired connection. Follow the prompts and test the connection afterwards.
Mind you, this is a general means to solving the problem. Try this first to see if you are successful.
I do hope that this helps you.

Ip address failed


In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.

Hope this help!

Internet Connection


On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings".
then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes".
go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan".
If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point.
Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one).
select "automatic" for everything.
select "Test Connection".
the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded".
If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.

Have you tried to find the settings automatically? Your router may be stopping the ps3 from access it to retrieve the information
