How do you fix dns 80710102
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:
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
Also, for those that think that this is a
PSN issue; consider this: With TW, I could still browse the net with
the PS3. I could also use any of my home PC's without problem. The
only time I ever encountered a fault was when trying to log into the PSN
network using the TWC supplied DNS addresses. Once I replaced those,
the problem went away.
Think about it now. If it was a
PSN issue, the OpenDNS addresses woudn't have worked for me or anyone
else here either. But, since it did I think it's safe to say that the
problem lies with your ISP. Don't forget that alot of ISP's including
Time Warner depend on 3rd party DNS hosts. Just because you have TW (or
Comcast, or Cablevision, et al), doesn't mean the DNS servers are owned
and operated by them as well. Perhaps the DNS provider changed
something in their routing tables preventing a connection with PSN.
There are ALOT of variables at play here...
could be a reason why others have similar issues with different ISP's.
Maybe their ISP uses the same DNS host that Time Warner uses. All you're doing by replacing the DNS address is simply using a different DNS provider; nothing else.
