Hello.

Go to network settings in the system tab of your dashboard, then first set all to automatic and try if it works then if it shouldnt take a look at the setting gateway and write down the IP, it should be something like 192.168.1.1 or so, then manually edit the DNS servers in the network configuration and add the gateways IP as primary DNS.

Retry if it works if it shouldnt you will have to get the direct addresses of the DNS servers of your provider to get these click on your start menu button in Windows then look for "Run..." and enter the command cmd and hit enter.
A command line should pop up enter the commain ipconfig /all in it that will list the DNS servers set these up for the xbox as well and retry again.

If it should still not work then something else must be wrong with your connection setup like your router blocking your xbox because you didnt allow it to connect to the internet or so, there are various reasons.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

I AM SIGNING UP 4 XBOX LIVE AND MY INTERNET CONNECTION FAILED IN RESULT OF AN INCORRECT SECONDARY DNS SERVER IM WONDERING WHERE DO U GO 2 FIND THAT


Have you tried dns settings in automatic? I take it from your post that you have the primary dns server, my primary and my secondary has only one number difference,
primary 194.168.4.100
secondary 194.168.8.100
you only have 9 numbers to try so its worth a go, I hope this helps because I know from experience what a frustrating pain in arse this can be.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

When I try to connect to the internet using a wireless connection, a screen comes up says "Communication with the server failed. A DNS error has occurred. (80410402)." How do I fix this problem?


if it is saying DNS error it is not a problem with the PSP, most likely a setting with your wireless router. or a problem with teh internet at the time of trying. check wireless settings on the PSP and make sure it has a number listed for DNS server.

My psp says communication with the server failed a dns error has occured 80410418 when i try to connect to the internet


you are typing in an incorrect address, DNS stands for Domain Name Server, meaning the address you typed was not listed.

Finally the DNS problems I had with connecting my PS3 to my network has been resolved. I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me (and I know someone else mentioned it in an other post here), was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. Voila... I am upgrading my PS3 software as I write this.... ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

Cant get internet connection on my ps


first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.

try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following:
- explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address
- purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 168.126.63.1 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp

If you go to your computer hold down the windows key and hit the and hit the R key at the same time.

This will bring up a black window, type in ipconfig/all,this will give you lots of details about your network setup, what we are looking for is the DNS ip's, they should be there under DNS Servers, use the addresses for your DNS servers.
