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.

The ps3 keeps on giving me dns error 80710102 and i dont know how to do the accounts and other stuff like tht cuz im only 13 also i dont know who my service provider is actually


if your isp is Roadrunner one fix is:
-When configuring your PS3 network (regardless of wired or wireless), use the manual option. If you use DHCP, leave address resolution at automatic
-Change DNS server entry to manual.

The DNS addresses are:

208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

No controler will connect to my playstation 3 ?


Did you try to connect first using the USB cable? I have had this problem because I take my controller to my friends house sometimes to use on his console for 2 player games. I always have to connect via cable first to get the controller recognised, after that I can use it wirelessly. Then when I take it home again, same problem. But connecting via cable first always fixes it.

HOW DO YOU HOOK UP A PLAYSTATION 3 TO THE INTERNET


It can be done via a wired and a wireless connection. For the wired connection, you just need to hook the ethernet cable at the ethernet port on your PS3. For the wireless connection, you just need to set it up under the Network Connections on your System Settings for the PS3.

Connecting via Wireless router


I assume you want to simply connect wirelessly to the internet with your PS3. Its very simple, just go to Network Settings, select wireless connection and then "Easy" setup. The only thing you should need is your wireless encryption key which would of been supplied with your router.

Hope this helps.

My son has a DNS error on his PS3 and cant get onto the internet....can you help a technophobe


this has helped me in the past.. i hope it helps you out

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:

208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

I hav a ps3 40 gb . i am tryin to hook it up thru my roadrunner internet service .how can i do this


cbailey2611

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.

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


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?
