ISP stands for "Internet Service Provider" - it is the company you pay for internet access.
If you have a wireless router at home, usually it will assign your IP address and DNS addresses automatically, and this is the setting that should be used.
If for some reason you need the DNS addresses still, the easiest way would be to look them up on a computer, that's connected to the same wireless network: you go to the wireless network icon in the system tray, right-click it, choose Status, change to Service tab and click "Details" - there at the bottom you will see the DNS server addresses.

Best bet is to open up your browser and type in www.whatismyip.com
this will give you your ip address from your isp provider (Internet Service Provider)
If You need some DNS numbers (Domain Name Server), I use open DNS. they are pretty good at keeping out dodgy or rogue sites. Web sites have actual numbers for their address, not names. When you type in www.anynamehere.com, the computer goes to the DNS server to look up the name and get the number (IP address) just like looking up a phone book.
If you choose to use Open DNS as the look up server. use these numbers in your settings.
DNS1 208.67.222.222
DNS2 208.67.220.220
If you need to put in a gateway (like a front door to go out to the net) you will need to go into your router or modem settings to find this number, Or just call your ISP to get the information. You will need your email username & password before you ring
Good Luck

How do you fix dns 80710102


Been troubled lately by that pesky DNS error? Notice that your PS3 can still browse the net, but not log in? Happen to be a Roadrunner customer? Happen to have any other ISP with a crummy DNS server? Well then read on...

The main issue turns out to be a Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS problem. The fix is simple. When configuring your PS3 network (regardless of wired or wireless), use the manual option. If you use DHCP, leave address resolution at automatic BUT CHANGE THE DNS SERVER ENTRY TO MANUAL.

I replaced the Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS entries with addresses from the Open DNS project which is a free, secure DNS server that anyone can use. It's safe, easy, and works.

The DNS addresses are:

208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

BTW, you can also use these DNS servers for your entire network if you like by configuring your router. That however is up to you, and won't be discussed in this particular thread by me since I'm too lazy to make a writeup for every single router out there. However, I do guarantee that this fix will work (or at least get you online with your PS3) for the time being. If it doesn't work, then please re-read this thread and try again before wasting five minutes of your time telling me that it doesn't work.

Also, for those that think that this is a PSN issue; consider this: With TW, I could still browse the net with the PS3. I could also use any of my home PC's without problem. The only time I ever encountered a fault was when trying to log into the PSN network using the TWC supplied DNS addresses. Once I replaced those, the problem went away.

Think about it now. If it was a PSN issue, the OpenDNS addresses woudn't have worked for me or anyone else here either. But, since it did I think it's safe to say that the problem lies with your ISP. Don't forget that alot of ISP's including Time Warner depend on 3rd party DNS hosts. Just because you have TW (or Comcast, or Cablevision, et al), doesn't mean the DNS servers are owned and operated by them as well. Perhaps the DNS provider changed something in their routing tables preventing a connection with PSN. There are ALOT of variables at play here...

That alone could be a reason why others have similar issues with different ISP's. Maybe their ISP uses the same DNS host that Time Warner uses. All you're doing by replacing the DNS address is simply using a different DNS provider; nothing else.

What is the primary DNS and secondary DNS?


There are two basic types of DNS - primary DNS and secondary DNS, which are generally applied to each newly registered domain. They are name server computers where the record of your domain name is stored. The information on both servers is identical. The two DNS values are usually configured by your ISPor hosting provider and given to you as a very important part of your domain registration order details.

In general, domain names can work with only one name server - the primary DNS. However, practice has shown that a domain name needs to have at least two name servers assigned in order to be available at any time. In case there is a problem with the primary name server, the secondary name server will be able to answer the online request for a particular domain. This back-up requirement has turned into an accepted Internet standard that prevents domain names from going offline.

Linksy router


a DNS server stands for domain name service. The DNS server translatesnames from IP addresses. The internet sees IP addresses such as 209.235.250.53 but the DNS server provided by your ISP translates it for you into fixya.com. You should be able to aquire the DNS server information from your internet provider (ISP) hope this helps.

Dns servers


DNS servers are the Domain Name Servers which convert the web addresses to the IP addresses. They are specific to your Internet Service Providers or ISP. You need to contact them to find out the primary and secondary DNS servers.

Dns problems


The DNS addresses are generally provided by your internet service provider (ISP) for your use. Can you identify your internet service providers web site link or his name and possibly your location in terms of city and state? WIth that information I should be able to access his support site and find the DNS addresses for you.
