When the DNS fails, it is a problem on your internet service provider's end. You should try to see if you can still access the internet, if not than contact your ISP.

SOURCE: Internet Connection Problem

Hi, change your DNS settings in your PS3 to :


  • This is "OpenDNS" settings which wont conflict with Sony's servers. I found this helpful info from a website and my PS3 works fine now. Its because your ISP's DNS clashed with Sonys Servers.

    SOURCE: Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.

    I had the same problem but rectified it like this ( windows XP):

    open Control Panel and click on Networks Connections. Then click on your internet service provider connection. In 'general' click on 'properties' and then go to 'Advanced'. On the 'Internet connection sharing' tick 'Allow other network users to connect through this internet connection. In the same box click on 'settings' and tick 'DNS'.

    I hope this helps.

    First chek your cables to make sure they're tight. Then test the internet connection in the settings. Restart ps3 and it should restore internet connection. If not, Cable is not working or is damaged.

    the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

    it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

    try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .

    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 .
