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.

Get dns error when i try to connect ot internet


Try entering all your info manually, Disable Auto IP,DNS and DHCP on your PS3. If that does not work, many help gurus claim that entering 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 will work, NO GARUTEE

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


sounds to me like you have the security turned on . Just type in your security key on PS3 and it should connect. Best of luck!

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Hello,

Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,

Wireless connection


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

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.

You can read more about internet connections on the PS3 with this link: Playstation.net

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.

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.
