Everytime i try to sign on to my PSN or try to play online i keep getting this error code. 80710763 can anyone help me please? i cant seem to find an answer to what it means.


Shawn, I believe this is a network or Router error. The simplest solution would be to wire connect your system using a cat-5 Ethernet cord. If you still have issues connecting to the PSN, then it could be something worse. Try to do a connection test. Go to the XMB(home screen) on your PS3, scroll all the way to the left(Where you would sign in) one space to the right, then all the way to the bottom of the tab. It will say "Network connection" go into that then scroll down to "Test Network" The main thing you are looking for here, are the top 3 items that will display. "Checking for IP address" should say (SUCCESS) "Checking for internet" Should say (SUCCESS) then "Playstation Network(PSN)" again, should say (SUCCESS) If all of these say Success, then the problem is with your log-in information.(E-mail or password incorrect) If they say (FAIL) then you need to contact your internet service provider (ISP). I hope this helps you out. Good luck.

Getting error code 8071053d tried rebootin ps3 and internet not working still wont let me play online


The error code indicates that the PS3 is unable to contact the Playstation Network Servers. This may be caused by the PSN (Playstation Network) being under excessive load (often a result of new, significant DLC being released) or a problem with your router or ISP (Internet Service Provider).

  • On your Playstation 3, go to the Settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select Network Settings, then select Internet Connection Test. If you do not see success for Obtaining IP Address and Internet Connection, then there is a problem with the networking between your PS3 and the internet.
If you both of these connections prove successful, but you are still not able to sign in to the PSN, try:
  • Contact your ISP and see if they have some sort of outage in your area or are somehow hindering your connection to the Playstation Network.

Tried connecting my ps3 with the wi fi . It obtains ip address successful but fails to connect to the internet . It says dns error 80710102.


Go to the PS3 Network Setup, choose "Manual".
Leave the option for DHCP under "automatic", and under DNS servers, manually add:

208.67.222.222 or/and
208.67.220.220


These are the IP addresses for the Open DNS project and now your PS3 will be able to resolve internet addresses.

I've changed my modem, I have a 100% connection with my PS3 to the router, IP address and Internet Connection is successful. Playstation Network = FAILED ... how can I fix this???


you can try doing a factory reset on your modem/router also try to hard wire it and see if that gets the PSN to pass, you might even have to set your PS3 up as a DMZ host in your modem/router configuration this will put your PS3 outside the Firewall which can sometimes fix the problem. You can also ty this:

On your router settings, open TCP port 80, port 443, port 5223 and UDP port 3478, port 3479, port 3658.
Disable the media server connection option found under the Network Settings menu option on the Playstation 3.

Ps3 wont connect to wireless


Hi,

Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks

Internet fails from dns


To access the internet from a home broadband network you need the router appropriately configured on the WAN or internet service provider (ISP) side and the attached computer to have an appropriate IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS addresses assigned to the network adapter.

Based solely on the title you should understand the following the belief here is that the PS3 is missing DNS address(es).

DNS address(es) are IP address(es) for servers that convert names like www.fixya.com into IP addresses to send messages to normally.

Your ISP generally assigns DNS addresses for your use.

How do DNS addresses get into the computer's network adapter configuration where they are needed? There are two ways generally in home networks someone manually puts them into the computer or someone enters them into the router and via a service called DHCP they get placed in computer's network adapters configured to accept information from the DHCP service on the router.

If the heading of this problem is correct the PS3 appears to be complaining because the DNS address(es) have not been configured into the computer or the router by the user as expected by the PS3's network adapter. I have no PS3 experience however I believe this information may help to resolve your issue.

I hope this helps
