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.

    Basic Internet connection Troubleshooting

    Test if your actually connected to the internet.

    This assumes web pages fail. if not is one of many great sites to test connection speed.

    Select 'Start' button
    Select 'Run'
    Type 'cmd'
    Select 'Ok'
    This opens a command window. Black with white text.
    Type "ping" without quotes.
    If you see "reply from" then you are connected but you may need to test DNS resolution.

    DNS test:

    Same command window.
    Type "ping" without quotes

    If you get a 'reply from' then you can resolve DNS.

    If any of these ping test fail start with resetting your connection, see ipconfig /renew and/or ipconfig /flushdns then reviewing your connections and possibly contact your ISP.

    Doing a Repair on XP - Vista - Windows 7 does the same (but more) as ipconfig.

    Samsung corby 2 (s3850) wifi connection. It can't connect to the wifi. It always end up DNS failed.

    Verify that you have the correct security protocol and password. Are you sure the router has a good connection to the Internet service provider? If it doesn't, you'll get a DNS failed message on every device connected to the router.

    I brought Samsun Wave GT-S8500 it failed to connect internet through 3g & even i tried to connect office accespoint it was connected in browser it was showing the dns failed Please help me what to do

    Seems it's a bug from Wave but alternatively you can try to change your DNS.

    1.  Temporarily urn off Wi-Fi on your phone
    2.  Go to Settings --> Connectivity --> Wi-Fi and tap on your WLAN's name.
    3.  Tap IP Address Type box

    4.  Set DNS (google's public DNS)

    DNS failed on Samsung Tocco Lite! HELP PLEASE!

    You will need to get the internet connection settings from your service provider. Contact your mobile service provider and download the settings. Also some service providers require you to activate some kind of internet packs before browsing. Check if this is the case with your SP too.

    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 .
