Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

DNS connection I just bought a converter and hook up for my PS3. Had internet for about three days and now all of a sudden I keep getting the error message about the DNS server. It is split off with my computer and my computer is still able to get the internet. I checked all connections, still the same. Unplugged them all, waited about a half hour, replugged them in and still no connection.

    Do you have a WEP security code on the router?

    Hi



    What is the make of your modem?. If the problem is with the DNS what you need to do is to set static ip and to open port on the router.

Try this it always seem to work. input the code in the dns # 4.2.2.2 4.2.2.1. that should solve your error.

100% internet connection but PSN won't let me login


That is very common, I too get that DNS error while attempting to log in. Im pretty sure it is just the playstation servers. For me it usually takes like 20-30 minutes until they get it running again or if your anxious to play just keep trying, sometimes it might only take 5 or 10 min. Hope this was helpfull.

I keep getting a DNS error when I try to log online


you should verify your internet connection with your provider; DNS error usually happens when connection fails.

PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection


Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .

Dns error for ps3


O.K. I had just had that little problem out of nowhere 2 days ago! First off Reboot the Modem, then the Router. When they are done turn on the PS3. In the PS3 Menu go to the 2nd Row from the Left and Down to Network Settings. Choose your setup Wired or Wireless. Choose DHCP and AUTO all the way through. If you are Wireless you will need your CODE! When done wait a minute then run the Network test right below in the Menu. You should be Good! This should reset your Network Automatically!

When i try to hook up the ps3 to the internet it finds the IP but when it says connecting to the internet it won't connect it says that it is a DNS error? but i do not have any ethernet cables hooked up to...


check your pc they will be there Winxp users go to Control panel open network connections then open local area connection click on properties scroll down to Internet protocol (TCP/IP) hightlight it and click properties, your dns settings should be there!

Or Contact your service provider for the DNS settings!

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
