Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My Ps3 has code 8001000A and won't connect to the network

My ps3 has been working fine for just over 1 year, then it suddenly has started to have trouble connecting to the controller, or the network. we have reset the router, reset the playstation, manually entered wep and wap codes, ssid, and gateway codes, also bought a new controller as we thought it was battery problems. Any new ideas? Please don't say move the ps closer to the router, I add, it was working well for 1 year, same router, same computer, same ps3. Any technical help appreciated. Pulling hair out now.

Since you're having both controller and wireless it might have something to do with your PS3's wireless hardware.

If both your controller and your internet work correctly while wired then that would help to confirm that.

Test to see if it makes a difference. If it works correctly then I would suggest replacing the part yourself. It's VERY easy to do.

Let me know what happens by rating my solution and then we'll go from there.

Best of luck!

That is just network error.

Your PS3 has not got a IP Address and/or name resolution from DNS.

Try a wired network if you are on wireless or vice versa.

Getting error code 8001000a


__you can try this:______

I struggled setting up the wireless internet connection on my PS3. It seemed that no matter what I did, I kept getting the error message 8001000B. After reading some help materials on this website, I determined that I needed to add to my router list of allowable MAC addresses the PS3 MAC address. Once I did this, the setup was as easy as shown on the manual.

Steps:

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__or this:___

After looking over the internet for answers I found a fix for the 8001000A and when the Playstation 3 (with firmware version 2.76) is hooked to a wireless router (in my case a Netgear WNR834B v2). Below are the steps I took.
  1. Reset your router to factory defaults.
  2. Go to Select Network Settings under Settings in the home menu.
  3. Select Easy then Wireless.
  4. Then select Enter Manually. Then enter in your SSID of your router. Then rest of the setting should be set to Automatic.
  5. However DO NOT TEST CONNECTION. Just save and turn off the playstation3.
  6. Then turn off Playstation 3 from the back of the drive.
  7. Unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds.
  8. Plug the power cord in and turn on the Playstation 3 switch.
  9. Wait 5 seconds and turn on the Playstation 3 and it will work. You can even test your connection and it will work.
However if you want your security settings on the router then once the router settings are back then repeat steps 2 through 9. Hope this works for all. I do not think replacing the unit is the answer. Any question just let me know.
