Took another look by fixing word wrapping in notepad.
It's missing DNS Servers. Check your NIC settings and make sure you don't have a DNS server manually set to another IP. Plus, you might try resetting the router to default in case there is a DNS modification there.
I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I couldn't hurt. It's part of trouble shooting.
A "DNS" server is a "DOMAIN NAME SERVER" -- you feed it a name, such as 'www.ebay.com', and it returns an IP-address. Then, the Internet "routes" your traffic to that IP-address, and eBay's web-server responds to your request, and sends a web-page to your IP-address.
A "DNS error" means either:
* there is no IP-address associated with the name, as you spelled it, e.g., 'ww.ebaay.co', or,
* your computer could not connect to the DNS-server, and so could not send the query,
* your computer does not know the IP-address of the DNS-server, and thus has "nowhere" to send your DNS-query.
The fix is simple. When configuring your PS3 network (regardless of
wired or wireless), use the manual option. If you use DHCP, leave
address resolution at automatic BUT CHANGE THE DNS SERVER ENTRY TO
MANUAL. Replace the Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS
entries with addresses from the Open DNS project which is a free,
secure DNS server that anyone can use. It's safe, easy, and works.
The DNS addresses are:
22.214.171.124 or/and 126.96.36.199
Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.
you can also use these DNS servers for your entire network if you like
by configuring your router. That however is up to you, and won't be
discussed in this particular thread by me since I'm too lazy to make a
writeup for every single router out there. However, I do guarantee that
this fix will work (or at least get you online with your PS3) for the
time being. If it doesn't work, then please re-read this thread and try
again before wasting five minutes of your time telling me that it
JUST TRY.does your net status already connected?. if your connected, try to open internet connection and click properties then double click INTERNET PROTOCOL(TCP/IP) mark obtain ip address automatically and below obtain DNS server automatically or USE THE FOLLOWING DNS SERVER, PREFERRED DNS 188.8.131.52 ALTERNATE DNS 184.108.40.206
Connect to the router's built-in web-server, and access the 'WAN Setup' page. Ensure that your ISP has handed-out an IP-address (and names of DNS-servers) to your router. Try to get it to "renew" the WAN IP-address.
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 220.127.116.11 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
First of all, how is your network configured? Are you behind a router? What's it's IP adress, does it act as a DHCP server?
If so try to set up a new network connection and put everything to automatic.. When the routers acts as a DHCP server it will give the PlayStation 3 an IP adress. DNS however is something else. DNS is a system that allows you to browse by a website or hosts name. For example: it allows you to type www.google.com in your browser instead of it's IP.
DNS is essential for Internet. Your router should be your DNS server and your router itself also needs to know a DNS server, this would be the server from your ISP. All these settings are automatically configured via DHCP.
