This has helped me in the past.. i hope it helps you out

Been troubled lately by that pesky DNS error? Notice that your PS3 can still browse the net, but not log in? Happen to be a Roadrunner customer? Happen to have any other ISP with a crummy DNS server? Well then read on...

The main issue turns out to be a Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS problem. The fix is simple. When configuring your PS3 network (regardless of wired or wireless), use the manual option. If you use DHCP, leave address resolution at automatic BUT CHANGE THE DNS SERVER ENTRY TO MANUAL.

I replaced the Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS entries with addresses from the Open DNS project which is a free, secure DNS server that anyone can use. It's safe, easy, and works.

The DNS addresses are:

208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

Dns error


DNS stands for Domain Name Service, and it helps in accessing various websites on the Internet. An error regarding the DNS for any particular website usually implies the lack of an active Internet connection. The purpose of DNS is to simply translate the address that a user types on the web browser from the human language into the computer language.

DNS is used to resolve names to numerical IP addresses, which is needed to route traffic onto the Internet. Whenever a URL is entered into the browser, the beginning part is the website's domain name.

One Website Not Working: try contacting other sites on the Internet to see if the DNS error is particular to one website. If only one site is not working, the problem rests with the one website.

Computer Not Connected: another item to check when a DNS error shows up is to see if the computer is on the local network. Check to see if the home or office router can be reached from the computer. If not, the DNS error is from the computer not being able to connect to the local office or home network.

Internet Connection Down: if no websites are working, it might be because the Internet connection is down due to a faulty cable/DNS modem or the ISP is down. Power off and on the modem. If the DNS errors still persist, contact the ISP.

DNS Errors: in the vast majority of cases, DNS errors have nothing to do with DNS. DNS errors are usually one of the first symptoms of internet or wireless connectivity issues.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection


Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .

DNS ERROR


make sure you have a stable internet connection, DNS error means that the internet system cannot translate a name into an IP address and that normally means that the data feed going from your internet connection to the Playstation is going in and out and it cannot complete the upload of information required to access the internet, the problem most likely lies in your router or modem or any other wireless signal producer and it is very unlikely that it is related to the bluetooth connection in the PS3 itself

Cant get internet on ps3


make sure that the ip address that you are getting is a valid one and you are connected to the correct wireless network. for example, if your router's ip address id 192.168.1.1, your computer should have an ip address of 192.168.1.x. if you are getting a valid ip address and you're still getting the dns error, the thing that you can do is set a static ip address and dns to your ps3.
if you don't know the dns to use, go to the command prompt and type ipconfig/all and it'll give you a list that'll contain the dns servers. copy the dns and enter it on the ip settings of your ps3 together with the default gateway (ip address of the router), subnet mask (it's usually 255.255.255.0) and your ip address (make sure that the ip address that you'll set on the ps3 is not being used by any of your computers)

hope this'll help you and just ask me if your still having any problem

ciao!
