Is your wireless turned on both on the system and the wireless router? Do you have a wireless connection setup?

If not then these may be your issue. You also need to go into your internet settings on your ps3 and the select your connection type for example: wired or wireless then > select scan> if there are any in the area select your> rename it if you want> put in the passcode if there is one> make sure everything is correct> then test the connection. If the test works then your fine.

On the other hand if you don't have a wireless router or a wireless connection setup on that will be an issue. with your wireless router they should have included instructions on how to setup the wifi network. Follow those and the problem should be solved rather quickly. Once the wifi is set up just refer back to my previous paragraph and follow those instructions again.

Error:8013031b this is not cant network for my playstation 3

1st if you are running your PS3 on wifi then make sure the pass phrase is entered in correctly.
2nd reset the modem and router by turning off both for 20sec. if that doesn't work then find the little red reset buttun on the back of the modem or router and hold in with a ballpoint pen for 5sec. if you hold it in for 10sec. or more it will bring the modem or router back to its factory settings.

I have a ps3 and i get a error code 800100A

Hi katie279,

Error Code 800100A shows up when it's having to gain internet acess trough your router. To fix this you need to forward your ports on your router.

There are several guides but the one i recommend is the following:

  1. Go to this site and search your router model (don't forget to skip the advertisement)
  2. On service select "Playstation Network"
  3. Follow the steps
This yould help you with your issue, hope this helped.

Unable to get wireless access to internet on ps3, keep getting a connection error DNS 80710102 or 800100A, can you advise how to resolve?

Try to disable the security key of your wireless router in the meantime and try to connect your PS3 without the security turned on. If it connects, what you have to do next is to reset or generate a new security key on the wireless router and setup the PS3 - wireless network connections with the new security key.

Internet turns off

It's a problem with your unit making a connection to your router. You can do one of a few things:

Uninstall and reinstall your router. Keep all settings default (if you don't, write down everything you do) and keep it to only one encryption key at max.

Distance from PS3 to router can make a huge difference, especially if it's an older router. If you can try either moving the router or the PS3 closer to eachother.

If it is an old router, you may want to consider getting a new one. Some experts will tell you that Wireless G routers are the best for gaming, which is somewhat true but you need to be willing to spend a good amount of money for it. I bought a Belink Wireless N router and my connection is so fast they make me the host of just about every online game. It ran me $60. My router is maximum 15 feet from my PS3 and it goes through 2 walls.

Your type of internet connection could effect it as well. If you have cable it's going to be fast but inconsistant; causing dead moments in your connection. If you have DSL it will run a little slower but very consistant and will almost never cut out.

Words of wisdom: Never turn off your PS3 from the back when the system is powered on; Once a month use canned air to clean out the ventalation system in your PS3; Keep good distance around your vents to give it a healthy air flow; Never set it on carpet as this could pull up more dust and dirt than usual; and when inserting your PS3 disc's try never to touch the shiny part and always either put it back in the case, or what I do is use the lids to my blank CD's to store them in.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.
