Re: Internet Connection Problem

Hi, change your DNS settings in your PS3 to :


  • This is "OpenDNS" settings which wont conflict with Sony's servers. I found this helpful info from a website and my PS3 works fine now. Its because your ISP's DNS clashed with Sonys Servers.

    Dns error

    First chek your cables to make sure they're tight. Then test the internet connection in the settings. Restart ps3 and it should restore internet connection. If not, Cable is not working or is damaged.

    the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

    it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

    try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .

    Can't connect to the internet, DNS failed what is this connection and how do i over come it.

    When the DNS fails, it is a problem on your internet service provider's end. You should try to see if you can still access the internet, if not than contact your ISP.

    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.
