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 www.google.com 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.

The only way to find out ps3 password is hacking into it with brute force attack.
The only simple way to get your password back is calling sony, you get the phone number in your PS3 documentation.

you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it.
-Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G).
-Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop)
-Linksys Wireless G/B Router
-G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and
-Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help?
-When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks

I have exactly the same issue as some of you above. As soon as I start my PS3 I manage to log onto the network for anywhere between 2 seconds and 2 minutes before I get the dreaded 80710102 error and have to reboot the PS3 to reconnect. I wrote to Belkin tech support and got the following reply... I Haven't tried it yet so don't know if it really works but thought I'd post it up here in case it helps anyone else out...
Thank you for contacting Belkin Technical Support.
