DNS error when connecting PS3 to internet

I'm attempting to access the net with PS3 using a wireless internet connection connected to my laptop via USB and an ethernet cable from the laptop to the ps3. Obtaining an IP address is sucessful however DNS fails. Any assistance would be helpful. I also purchased a router today only to find that I my wireless modem only has USB connection. Any suggestions

You could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it.
MY Components:
-Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G).
-Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop)
-Linksys Wireless G/B Router
-G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and
-Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer

At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help?
-When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks

I was able to connect fine for a month before the 1.50 update and then things got really wierd. I have gone through entire days unable to connect to the network and entire days able to connect. Meanwhile I had full use of the PS3 internet browser and no other computer or internet issues. I can currently confirm that if I return my PS3 internet settings the original "automatic" settings I will not be able to connect, with these DNS settings in the PS3 I have no problems. I have cable internet access through Adelphia with a Linksys WRT54GS router communicating wirelessly with my PS3... GOOD LUCK!
The information I used to create this fix contained a link that has provided us with router specific DNS information to be used if the numbers provided do not work. http://www.opendns.com/start/at_home.php
Now, a day later, I am able to connect with the original automatic settings for everything including DNS. I must also point out that the network performance is much faster using the automatic settings and recommend using alternate DNS settings only when neccessary.


All I can say for those still having problems is reboot EVERYTHING. Your router, modem, PS3 and any other device that may be connected to your network.

If you still have problems try connecting the ps3 directly to your modem not through the router...

No connection


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.

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.

DNS ERROR


make sure you have a stable internet connection, DNS error means that the internet system cannot translate a name into an IP address and that normally means that the data feed going from your internet connection to the Playstation is going in and out and it cannot complete the upload of information required to access the internet, the problem most likely lies in your router or modem or any other wireless signal producer and it is very unlikely that it is related to the bluetooth connection in the PS3 itself

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
