How do i solve the DNS error 80710102


It seems like the DNS error is generally caused by problems on your ISP's end of the network, but that doesn't mean you can't have a crack at fixing it yourself.

Under your network connection settings try changing the DNS servers to the following numbers (they're free by the way)

Primary DNS 208.67.222.222
Secondary DNS 208.67.220.220

Also, try disabling media server connection as well. These simple steps should, in 90% of cases, fix the problem.

I've written a more in-depth guide to the causes of, and solutions to the DNS error- check it out here http://searchwarp.com/swa641197-Ps3-Dns-Error-80710102-Troubleshooting.htm

Can 807101 ps3 be solved


If you keep getting this ps3 error 807101ff, then somethings definitely wrong with your online communication. To be specific, you are having what it called a DNS error. You see, the DNS settings on your network is your means of contacting and communicating with an online server. In the case of the ps3, that online server happens to be a game server. Without a correct DNS setting, your online network is "doomed", or put in another way, useless.

807101ff problem? It's really quite easy! What you can do is to try the POWER CYCLING method. To do this, turn off your ps3 and all of your networking devices like the modem and router. Remove the power cord of the router and modem as well, to be sure. You then wait for a short while, like a few minutes.

After the short wait, you can now connect back the modem and turn it on. After you get a solid light on the modem, connect back the router. The last thing you turn on is the ps3. This way, your ps3 would be able to try obtaining an IP address. Likewise, it will also try to establish a stable DNS setting. This technique works most of the time in solving the problem



Hope this helps you!

Any further questions feel free to ask.

Your ps3 cannot connect to your dns server, if your using a router make sure all ports are open for your ps3 google ps3 port forwarding for help.

if you want to manually type it in open command prompt and type ipconfig hit enter

this will show your ip and dns settings plug them into the ps3 network settings and try again.

DNS problem


If you are connecting your PS3 to a network with a router you should set the router address as the DNS server on the ps3 network settings

Good luck

Finally the DNS problems I had with connecting my PS3 to my network has been resolved. I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. 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.. Thanks!

Cant get internet connection on my ps


first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.

try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following:
- explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address
- purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 168.126.63.1 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp

DNS problem


Try setting up your network connection all automatically when connected to a router who acts as a DHCP server. DNS server addresses are also automatically configured via DHCP.

Make sure it can reach your router.
