Re: playing on line

Is your security setting set at nat3? if so change to nat2 and it should be ok. Look on youtube and it will show you what to do. Works well if you keep getting cut off or our having trouble with headsets.

Re: playing on line

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..

Why when i connect to the network to play it tells me ther is a dns error? i could go on the internet for anything else except to play on line >

You can assign a DNS server. It means that something is wrong with your DNS configuration.

You can use OpenDNS:
Set this up under the Network settings, manual configuration.

Was playing Tiger Woods 09 on my 360 when the graphics all of the sudden looked very cheap and generic. I played a few more holes and then shut it off. I tried to turn it back on after about 5 minutes and...

Sounds like the infamous Xbox 360 "3 flashing red LED's" issue, ours did the same shortly before suffering 3 flashing red LED's. If you have one of the original Xbox 360's (without an HDMI port on the back) every single one was built with the wrong solder, so when it gets hot enough the solder melts and your graphics chip gets disconnected.
Is mad as it sounds, run the Xbox 360 for a bit longer until it dies completely because Microsoft have extended the warranty for that specific issue to 3 years! Once you have 3 flashing red LED's you can call the help-line in your country, go through a few diagnostics with them and then (and only then!) the call agent will tell you that as long as your Xbox is less than 3 years old it will be repaired for free.
Microsoft have not widely advertised this and indeed if you try to book service on line it will tell you that you have to pay, even if you click yes to the question "Does your Xbox 360 have 3 flashing red lights on the front?".
However, if you have a newer Xbox 360 message back and we'll go through further diagnostics.
Nick. :)

If it says ea servers not available that means the servers are down for maintenance, this is not unusual for video game servers, happens once or twice a month....

Also keep in mind playstation servers and xbox server are totally different.
