Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This error code is caused by a connection time out when attempting to connect to the Domain Name Server (DNS). If you are seeing this code you should check the following:
• Do you have a working internet connection (can you connect successfully using a PC)?
• Reconfigure your network settings (delete existing settings and create new ones)
• Does your Internet Service Provider (ISP) prohibit access to secure pages as a default setting? (this may lead to failures when accessing system software updates)
• Within network settings, is the Primary DNS being detected? If the ‘Primary DNS’ is displayed as 0.0.0.0 or is blank, the DNS is not being detected automatically. If this is the case you should contact your ISP and ask for the ISP’s DNS address. This DNS address should then be manually input into your network settings. Following all of these steps your PS3 should now be able to get online.
I also think one or two of you may be trying to get your PS3 online without a router. I'm not sure why they don't tell you, when you first purchase a PS3, all the things you'll need to run your console with optimum settings. But you DO NEED A ROUTER! I know this may sound silly to some of you, but I've been asked this SO many times, that I have to clarify... A modem is NOT a router. These are seperate devices.

Are you connecting wirelessly or with a cord? if wireless, you need to make sure that you are selecting the same security setting as the connection that you pick in 'network settings'. If the option is 'none', then you need not worry about a password. however if it has a password, then you need to make sure that you type that password in (case sensitive). I had the same problem and this worked for me. hope this helps...please rate if it does....thanks
