PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection

Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .

Try this if you can get a ethernet cable to plug into your ps3 then you know that it is your wifi if this is the problem do what this guy said but also rest your modem plug the modem in first then the router and set up a new connection on the ps3. That will 90% be a way to fix the problem or MSG for more.

Set up the router on a real computer first, then sign onto wifi with the PS3. Be sure you know the security settings so that you can easily match when connecting from the PS3

Wireless router wont connect

Hey mentalmc,

I had this problem at least once a month. Try these things out.
1. Make sure any WEP codes are entered EXACTLY as it is for your router.
2. Set up your router so only your PC connected to it can change any settings.
3. Turn off your PC while trying to connect via PS3 WiFi. The good ole Win update likes to download without you knowing it sometimes.
4. If all else fails, call Sony cause you may have a bad WiFi antenna or motherboard.

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