Go to start->run on your computer, and type "cmd"

When the command prompt comes up, type "ipconfig /all", this will list all of the information about your IP address. Find the DNS Servers option, and copy that onto your xbox.

SOURCE: PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection

try this
So what I found out was to put in the IP address you find in ipconfig/all but add one to the last octive. Example if yours is 172.16.1.25... then in your ps3 type in 172.16.1.26

Then I was using the primary and secondary DNS numbers that my computer was giving me in ipconfig/all. Do not use those. For your primary DNS number use the number for your default which should be a right below your subnet mask number. For the secondary DNS number just leave it blank. 0.0.0.0

Then you have to upgrade to version 1.50 (which just came out yesterday actually). Get a memory stick with at least 100mb space on it. Make a new folder that is names PS3. Inside that folder make another new one that is called UPDATE. Both must be in capitol letters. Then go to PlayStation.com - PLAYSTATION®3 - Network - updates and click on "download now"... Then click save and save it to your memory stick in the UPDATE file, which should be in your PS3 file.

Then after all is done... plug that into your ps3 in one of the USB ports for the controllers. In the main screen go to SETTINGS and then go to SYSTEM UPDATE. Go to UPDATE VIA STORAGE MEDIA. PS3 will search for your media stick and it should say on the screen The latest update data was found... Version 1.50. Click OK and follow the rest of the instructions. After it is completely done... go back to the internet connection setup and go through all the menus to make sure all your numbers are the same as I stated above. Then at the end run the connection test. It should work!

SOURCE: DNS error (80410411) cannot find server

If you are using a public router (meaning you're using just a connection from somebody else's router) prolly, you're DNS have been blocked...have you tried connecting to other sources other than the one you can't use? If you have a connection and you don't own your own wireless router, try borrowing one from someone you know first then try if it works...then that's the time you should ask for your own wireless router...

SOURCE: PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection

for mine i tried other fixes and they didn't work. Turns our my router had enabled security but the PS3 had forgotten the password (WEP key).

I turned off the WEP on my router and the PS3 suddenly found its connection.

To say I was getting stressed is an understatement, Sony should put something on their website, it seems like a really commonm problem to which people have no clear route to solution.

Hey im tring to connect to xbox live through hughes net but i need my primary dns server and my secondary dns server and some other stuff and i was wondering if u could help me please


I'm not sure why you would need that. If your connecting your xbox through a router, it should get an address automatically, however you can always try some free public dns servers, such as googles

The Google Public DNS IP addresses are as follows:
  • 8.8.8.8
  • 8.8.4.4

.trouble with playstation 3 getting on line through router...


It looks like there are a lot of DNS servers that do not work correctly with the PS3. Below I will list a few DNS servers that do seem to work and you will need to manually configure the DNS settings for your PS3 to any of these addresses.

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

129.250.35.250
129.250.35.251
4.2.2.1
4.2.2.5

Use the ethernet connection. Make sure that you reboot the router if you're using one and that there's a link light on the router on the port where the xbox is. If you have a computer, use it to make sure your connection's dns is properly configured. use the computer to connect to www.fixya.com to make sure.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.

If you go to your computer hold down the windows key and hit the and hit the R key at the same time.

This will bring up a black window, type in ipconfig/all,this will give you lots of details about your network setup, what we are looking for is the DNS ip's, they should be there under DNS Servers, use the addresses for your DNS servers.

Only partial internet access


Try a public DNS server, like:

  • 205.234.170.215
  • 205.234.170.217

  • There are many more, if you just want to 'Google' for them, IE; "Public Name Servers"

    Let me know if there are any changes..
