Go to start->run on your computer, and type "cmd"

When the command prompt comes up, type "ipconfig /all", this will list all of the information about your IP address. Find the DNS Servers option, and copy that onto your xbox.

Connetion error 80130128


1. on pc, run -> cmd
2. ipconfig
3. Read the "gateway" ip. Put that into browser to go to router's admin page
4. Find the DHCP settings for router to see what range of IPs it hands out; pick one outside that range
5. Set up the ps3 with that IP, the router IP as primary dns, and an opendns server as secondary This made the connection test happy. But when he tried to go to the playstation store, it gave a DNS error. If he repeated the connection test again, it failed too. "Well," I told him, "It's supposed to try both DNS servers. But we can try setting the primary DNS server to opendns as well." Once he did that, everything worked. (In case you don't know, Run is on the Start menu, usually on the right-hand panel.)If you try that, it might well be possible that your problem is solved. If this doesn't work for you, please call our Network Call Center

80711008 the code showed up on sodium one


Had the same issue with my system. Discovered it was an issue with my ISP's DNS server. I went into the network settings and told my PS3 to use google's public DNS servers. (see http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/)


Primary 8.8.8.8

Secondary 8.8.4.4


and bingo I could connect and run network tests &c.


Also this number is hex not dec, it should be reported as 0x80711008.

Hey im tring to connect to xbox live through hughes net but i need my primary dns server and my secondary dns server and some other stuff and i was wondering if u could help me please


I'm not sure why you would need that. If your connecting your xbox through a router, it should get an address automatically, however you can always try some free public dns servers, such as googles

The Google Public DNS IP addresses are as follows:
  • 8.8.8.8
  • 8.8.4.4

Newbie to servers, ive been given an computer with server 2003 loaded on it it has been through the first stage setup and now im with a few things, mainly when i run the email and internet connection...


DNS-servers translate names, such as 'www.fixya.com' to IP-addresses, because routing of IP-packets on the Internet is done using the IP-addresses, not by using the names of each computer.

If you have a router between your computers and your cable-modem (or DSL-modem), then the router can automatically supply the "Primary DNS Server" and "Secondary DNS Server" and "IP Address" to your server computer, if you configure the network-adapter on the server to "automatically obtain an IP Address".

As long as you leave your server running, the "dynamic" IP-address that it obtains will, in effect, become a "static" (namely "non-changing") IP-address.

I AM SIGNING UP 4 XBOX LIVE AND MY INTERNET CONNECTION FAILED IN RESULT OF AN INCORRECT SECONDARY DNS SERVER IM WONDERING WHERE DO U GO 2 FIND THAT


Have you tried dns settings in automatic? I take it from your post that you have the primary dns server, my primary and my secondary has only one number difference,
primary 194.168.4.100
secondary 194.168.8.100
you only have 9 numbers to try so its worth a go, I hope this helps because I know from experience what a frustrating pain in arse this can be.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

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.

Make additional DNS


Yes, all Windows Servers have the option to install DNS.

Set up a second Windows server and configure it to be a secondary server for your DNS domains on you current server.

Add the second DNS server's IP address to the secondary DNS field to your DHCP scope options and to all computers with static IP configuration so they will use it when your primary DNS is unavailable.

Don't underestimate Window's built-in Help and Support. It will help you install DNS and configure it.

Good luck.

Ip adress config/dns server


when using a static IP you must also get the DNS server addresses from your router's manufacturer. the primary/secondary DNS for D-Link routers are 4.2.2.2/4.2.2.3 respectively. contact the customer support line of your product or do a Google search for"_______ dns" (____ being your product name)
