Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Does anybody here have a clue about playstation 3? I keep trying to update my playstation and everytime it says 'an error has occured during the download operation. A connection to the sever cannot be established (80710723)'. I know the internet is connecting because when i go on the internet browser on the ps3 i can search and enter the sites and also when i click on internet connection test it obtains th ip adress an connects to the internet, its just when it goes to the playstaion network it says ' a system software update is required'. as i have mentioned i cannot update my ps3. any ideas whats wrong? I will appreciate ANY ideas at all.
I had the same problem to solve, i got an ethrenet cable and changed the settings from wireless to cable it then worked amazingly quickly. hope that helped

I had to try 3 or 4 times before it would download, but if your still having issues why not download it to a computer and transfer it to a smart card or flashdrive and go from there. I've done that a bunch, I find the PS3 slow when online or downloading something. So I cruise the web on my laptop, find what I want download it quick quick fast fast and then put it on a flash drive to transfer to PS3. 1000x faster than doing it from the PS3

Try turning off the virus software on your computer, this should let the updates through, my friends wii had this problem too
