The way this was resolved for me (and I know someone else mentioned it in an other post here), was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. Voila... I am upgrading my PS3 software as I write this.... ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP..

Well the Ps3 has Wi Fi so i think you can probably boost up the Wi Fi distance to try and get a better signel try to keep the Ps3 atleast 5 - 25 feet near the wireless connection.

SOURCE: problem connecting my ps3 to the internet

ok guys ive found the solution. i have a sprint usb aircard and had the same problem for like 6 months and just yesterday i found out how to make it work.

1) connect laptop/ CPU to internet as usual*
2)go to control panel
3) go to network and internet connections
4)go to network connections
5) next tight click on you internet provider thing. and go to properties.
6) click on advanced tab
7) then just follow the instruction to make it a shared connection and thats all to it.

fyi: its probably going to lag alot if your not in a good reception area. other than that the lag is bearable.

ps: if you need more help, or if you just want to say thank you email me at :

What does error code 80028E02 mean and how can i fix it

have you tried the latest firmware update? It could be a mandatory update, that will not allow you to sign in to PSN until you install it. My other thought is, check your internet connectivity. Check to see if the router has internet going to it. Even if there is NOT, it will let you connect to the router, but not the internet. Do you have a hard wire connection available? try that, and if that works, then obviously the problem is with the router itself. Also, if you have been banned, for whatever reason, they can block your IP from being able to sign in.

My ps3 won't let me sign in to the network. The Internet browser works but when I try to sign in it gives me an error code 80710A06. Can you help please?

Hi there, unfortunately there is nothing you can do at the moment. The playstation network is down worldwide. We just have to wait till sony fixes this!5794265/is-the-entire-playstation-network-down or!5794440/sony-playstation-outage-likely-to-last-days or or
The reason your browser will still work is because it doesn't require the playstation network to run, it only requires your internet connection to be working. The signing in requires a connection between your connection and sony's servers.

How do i set my ps3 up to get online

Take the ethernet only and attach it to your router. If you are not already using a router for your computer internet connection then if your router has connection software that needs installing for network setup for the router only you run the software on the computer after connecting the router to the PC.

If you use the oruter for your PC connection already then do the following.

  • Connect the Ethernet from the PS3 to the router0
  • On the ps3 Go to settings
  • Go to network settings
  • Go to network connection, select enable
  • Go to Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
  • Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
  • Select wired or wireless
  • For wireless use scan or enter manually
  • Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right.

All I want to do is run the playstation thru my computer. Do I have to connect it to the internet to do that?

not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.

How do you hook a PC laptop to the PS3 for installing upgrade info?

First off you will need an ethernet cable to do this. Depending on what OS you are running on the laptop, there are different ways to get to where you need to know. So I will give you the basics, which should get you connected.
On the laptop you need to get to your (network sharing center) vista and win 7 you go to (control panel) select (network and Internet) then select (network and sharing)
On the left hand collumn select (change adapter settings), fingd which connection to the internet your laptop uses and right-click it and select (properties).
Select the (sharing) tab and then check the box that says (allow other network userers to connect through this computer's internet connection). Then select ok and restart the connection.
After this procced to connect the PS3 to the laptop via ethernaet cable and then use the PS3 setup wizard to enable the connection.

Connecting my PS3 to the internet using a 3G Verizon Broadband

Unfortunately the PS3 will not be recieving internet through this device, the USB connectors are set up to only work with PC or MAC specifically for that reason that gamers cannot use their Xbox or Playstation, and that is because Verizon offers a Wireless router cell phone data device which costs almost a thousand dollars, definately not worth it.

Trying to upgrade my ps3, with dial-up.

to do this you would need to enable your pc with ICS (Internet connection sharing) and connect an ethernet cable from your pc to ps3. You will need windows xp or vista to do this.

A tutorial can be found here

Should you need either a network card for your pc or ethernet cable these can be cheaply found on ebay.

However your PS3's connection to the internet will be dreadfully slow and will most likley have extremely bad lag when playing online.

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.
