How do i reset my ps3 internet connection, just changed internet companys and ps3 wont work

Get the name of your router manufacturer and find out how to log in using a pc and the internet.
Or you can go on your pc and go to start run and type cmd.Then hit enter.

A box will pop up.Type ipconfig then hit enter.The ip address should be listed there.Something like
Type that number in your browser and log into your router.Username should be admin and password should be either the word password or admin.Again check with the router manufacturer.

Once you log om to the router make sure upnp is checked off and also get your wma or wep key and enter it into your ps3.
Once done restart ps3 and you should be connected.

P S 3 will not play MLB 08 just when game starts it freezes up sound keeps playing screen is blank same with downloadable demo games from playstation store

If you are having issues with the screen freezing after the press start screen, this has to do with your automatic I.P. address configuration on your PS3. On your computer go to the command prompt (to get to command prompt, click START > Run. In the box that opens up, type cmd. This will give you a black window with something written on the top ), Here is a pic:

Type in ipconfig .It will show you the default gateway for your router/DSL. Type that into your web browser to access your router configuration. From there you can find the I.P. for the PS3 and default DNS servers. On your PS3, go to the network settings and manually enter in the I.P address for your PS3, the default gateway, and the default DNS servers. After that, it should load up fine for you.

Note: You will need the password for your router. Some have defaulted "admin" as the password, or whatever you used when you set up your router for your network.

If that doesn't work, HERE is another solution.

Hope that works!

Hello my son has jst got a PS3 and is looking at linking wirerless through home computer - unfortunately our PC has huge security code on it and trying to enter correctly into PS3 is impossible!! Is it...

Yes you can change the security code by going into your router settings. Depending on which router you have you will have to type an ip address into the web browser to acces the routers menu. Google your router and see what the ip address of it is and then google how to change the wireless key.

Hope this helps

Your ps3 cannot connect to your dns server, if your using a router make sure all ports are open for your ps3 google ps3 port forwarding for help.

if you want to manually type it in open command prompt and type ipconfig hit enter

this will show your ip and dns settings plug them into the ps3 network settings and try again.

Dns error 80710102

Hey peterk18,

First of all, how is your network configured? Are you behind a router? What's it's IP adress, does it act as a DHCP server?

If so try to set up a new network connection and put everything to automatic.. When the routers acts as a DHCP server it will give the PlayStation 3 an IP adress. DNS however is something else. DNS is a system that allows you to browse by a website or hosts name. For example: it allows you to type in your browser instead of it's IP.

DNS is essential for Internet. Your router should be your DNS server and your router itself also needs to know a DNS server, this would be the server from your ISP. All these settings are automatically configured via DHCP.
