Re: ps3 internet

Have you tried to find the settings automatically? Your router may be stopping the ps3 from access it to retrieve the information

Error code 8002ad23

Hi Giles

You probably have your router connected to your modem, and a PC connected wired/wireless, and the ps3 connected wired/wireless.

1. First you need to start your ps3 system. Go to your network settings and select information. Write down your IP, Subnet mask, Standard Gateway, and the primary DNS.

2. Start your PC and go to your networks settings. Right click your network adapter, click properties. Select "Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Click properties and type in manually the IP adress, Subnet mask, Standard gateway and DNS.

Then you click "Advanced" and then you click "WINS" then "Activate NetBIOS over TCP/IP". Save your settings and connect the ps3 to your network (should not make a difference if you do it wired or wirelessly)

Let me know if this helped and please do rate my solution.

Ps3 DNS error 80710102

get the IP adress of your router and go to it online.... your PS3 has what is called a "MAC address. you have to enter the MAC address into the web page to allow access to the internet to the device. this is how i connected a friend of mine to his wireless internet. he tried for weeks with no result but after i did this he was able to connect instantly.

Wireless connection

My PS3 would only connect using WEP encryption , so I had to downgrade my WPA capable router in order to go wireless.

Dns error when connecting how do I fix this

Unstable connection. if you have wireless connection that could be a problem depending on your environment. Try turning off your firewall too by calling your internet server(Comcast,DSL,etc.)

PS3 40gb, no DNS available

Have you used the automatic settings for the two different connection types (wired and wireless)? You should only need to enter this information if you want to use DNS servers other than the ones provided by 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.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.

OK IF YOU HAVE PS3, and you get the ERROR DNS while trying to login into PSN, all u need to do is, shutdown the console, then restart it by holding down the ON button on the PS# not the controller till you hear 2 beeps, then try to login again, should work.
