Re: PS3

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..

Error code 8002ad23

Hi Giles

You probably have your router connected to your modem, and a PC connected wired/wireless, and the ps3 connected wired/wireless.

1. First you need to start your ps3 system. Go to your network settings and select information. Write down your IP, Subnet mask, Standard Gateway, and the primary DNS.

2. Start your PC and go to your networks settings. Right click your network adapter, click properties. Select "Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Click properties and type in manually the IP adress, Subnet mask, Standard gateway and DNS.

Then you click "Advanced" and then you click "WINS" then "Activate NetBIOS over TCP/IP". Save your settings and connect the ps3 to your network (should not make a difference if you do it wired or wirelessly)

Let me know if this helped and please do rate my solution.

You are probably getting this when you are trying to sign into the psn and it means you were banned from the PSN. haha :) create a new psn account and hope your console wasn't banned, or call 8003457669 and ask why your account was banned.
