Been troubled lately by that pesky DNS error? Notice that your PS3
can still browse the net, but not log in? Happen to be a Roadrunner
customer? Happen to have any other ISP with a crummy DNS server? Well
then read on...
The main issue turns out to be a
Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS problem. 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.
I replaced 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:
replaced, you should have no problem logging in.
here is the url i got it from http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Network/Solution-for-your-DNS-error-80710102-problems-Works-for-all-ISP/m-p/42264211/message-uid/42264211
In regards to connecting your PS3 to the Internet what need to get a wireless router. Once you have the router then you will connect it to your cable modem. After it is connected then you will go into the wireless setup for the PS3 and point it to your router. This is the best way to setup your PS3. Note some of the newer ISPs are giving out wired/wireless router modems so you may need to contact your ISP's Tech support if you already have one of the router modems.
Let me know if you need more help with the PS3 setup as I have not made screen shots of the PS3 yet but can if you need some more help.
A cable modem & a router are two different things. You can pick up a "Cisco 'EtherFast' cable/DSL" (wired or wireless) router at Wal Mart for $35. But you need both a modem & router to get your PS3 up & running on the web. Once you get on, you'll need to set up a "PlayStation" account. Unlike the Xbox 360 Live network, PlayStation is free of charge. It's a very user-friendly interface, so you shouldn't have any problems there. Cisco will give you live customer service to walk you through hooking up your router. Please let me know you make out. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck, bro.
Roadrunner is broadband, so you have a cable modem, and personally, I have NEVER seen one with wireless capability. You need to go get a wireless router and connect it between the modem, and your computer... follow the set up protocols for the router, and enable WEP encryption. After you have the router up and running, configure your PS3 to the router using its setup proceedures.
After you get the router and PS3 configured, go back into the router configuration, and set your router up to ONLY accept connections from the mac address of the PS3 (find the mac address by going into "network settings" and then "settings and connection status list") and turn off the SSID broadcast, you don't need it running once the PS3 knows the router is their, and by taking these two steps, you significantly increase the security of your network.
??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.
Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.
For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
you can go wireless, but personally wired is better. what router do you have? switch everything off, plug a ethernet cable from one of your ports on router to ps3 then then switch it all on. on ps3 go to settings - network settings - internet connection settings - then select easy - then whether you wanna do it wireless or wired (up to you) then let it do its thing, once its found all your settings you can test the connection.
Have you set up an account on your ps3 yet?
There are two way basically, you can either a) hook you PS3 up directly to your router or modem using a CAT-5 cable (RJ-45 or regular old internet cable, whatever you want to call it) or b) hook up to the internet using the built in wireless adapter of the PS3. (provide of course, that you have wireless in range of your PS3)
If you are in your PS3's menu, go to settings and then network settings. You should be able to figure the rest out from there because it basically walks you through it.
Hope that helps
Sorry if the answer seems vague... but the question was a little vague as well, just doin' my best.
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 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.
