This code (80711008) is not reffered error code list
Try first to establish a success connection at a nearer distance. Your signal strength might not be strong enough to have a lasting connection

I have the same problem but I am using a wired connection with 3 other computers on the network. It only seems to happen when streaming movies to the ps3 via a media server, but it didnt start happening until i upgraded to firmware 2.50

I have connected my PS3 to the internet wirelessly before but I have recently moved into a new home. I consistently get the 8013013d Error code when trying to connect to the internet... But my room mate...

Hello :D

8013013D "A connection error has occurred" - May be to do with the SSID of the Router or signal strength if the conneciton drops Putting the PS3 into DMZ may help - otherwise check WPA key PS3 can't handle WPA2 only WPA or none

I hav a ps3 40 gb . i am tryin to hook it up thru my roadrunner internet service .how can i do this


In regards to connecting your PS3 to the Internet what need to get a wireless router. Once you have the router then you will connect it to your cable modem. After it is connected then you will go into the wireless setup for the PS3 and point it to your router. This is the best way to setup your PS3. Note some of the newer ISPs are giving out wired/wireless router modems so you may need to contact your ISP's Tech support if you already have one of the router modems.

Let me know if you need more help with the PS3 setup as I have not made screen shots of the PS3 yet but can if you need some more help.

Ps3 error code 80711008 and wpa

OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router .. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the "wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
and you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and for that you a computer connected to the router...

As for your IP address simple use this site should be everything you need

On signing in to psn i get the error 80711008

Go to your Internet Connection Settings, then Disable the Media Server thing and it should work, hopefully. I did it and I think it's working now, because I'm downloading the new 2.76 Update.

Connect ps3 wirelees to internet

On your PS3, do the following:

- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless

Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.

For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.

Hope that helps!

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.

if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.

Sony ps3 online

First off do you have wireless internet you trying to get it connected to or are you using a cord straight to your computer/internet plug in, if its connected to a wi-fi try getting the ps3 closer to the wireless box on you computer, if its connected by a cord try using a different cord as the current one you are using may be faulty
