DNS is an acronym for Domain Name System but what your console is looking for is a connection to the Internet. In order to accomplish this it needs either an Ethernet cable connection or a Wi-FI (wireless) connection. In order to really answer your question though I will need more information.

I have been tring to connect to wireless internet all day with my ps3 and it ethier says my WPA key may be incorrect or errorhas occurred (8013013D)


that is not a problem and i will be glad to assist you. If this doesnt work please follow up with a comment and i can give you instructions on what to do next.
This error code is caused by a connection time out when attempting to connect to the Domain Name Server (DNS). If you are seeing this code you should check the following: • Do you have a working internet connection (can you connect successfully using a PC)? • Reconfigure your network settings (delete existing settings and create new ones) • Does your Internet Service Provider (ISP) prohibit access to secure pages as a default setting? (this may lead to failures when accessing system software updates) • Within network settings, is the Primary DNS being detected? If the ‘Primary DNS’ is displayed as 0.0.0.0 or is blank, the DNS is not being detected automatically. If this is the case you should contact your ISP and ask for the ISP’s DNS address. This DNS address should then be manually input into your network settings. Following all of these steps your PS3 should now be able to get online.
to find your dns in windows > Start
> Run
> command
> ipconfig /all
Then the DNS Server(s) being at the bottom

If it still doesnt work let me know your router model number. Also ensure your WPA key is correct and that its not wpa2 as depending on the model most playstation 3's cant use wpa2. that way if you provide me with your router i can ensure that everything will work with each other and determine the best security settings to get your computer online
If you need further assistance or help with anything please let me know and i will be glad to guide you through any assistance you may need.

Cant get into the internet with my ps3. i get a dns code 80028E06


Hi p_dill
You would need to configure your DNS settings, Try using 208.67.222.222 as the primary DNS server and 208.67.220.220 as the Secondary DNS Server. You can also do this change in the router instead if you like. You may have to give the router and the PS3 a restart once you try this to get things working.
Here is a link that will assist you in configuring Internet settings in your PS3.

If these DNS servers doesnt help you, here is another link which conatin list of many public DNS servers.

I AM SIGNING UP 4 XBOX LIVE AND MY INTERNET CONNECTION FAILED IN RESULT OF AN INCORRECT SECONDARY DNS SERVER IM WONDERING WHERE DO U GO 2 FIND THAT


Have you tried dns settings in automatic? I take it from your post that you have the primary dns server, my primary and my secondary has only one number difference,
primary 194.168.4.100
secondary 194.168.8.100
you only have 9 numbers to try so its worth a go, I hope this helps because I know from experience what a frustrating pain in arse this can be.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

DNS error


you can get the dns setting by connecting a computor to the broadband the steps are
  1. goto 'start'
  2. goto 'run'
  3. type 'cmd.exe'
  4. in the commmand prompt type 'ipconfig' , it gives all the details about your broadband.
DNS error generaly means that there is nothing wrong with your system but ther must be a problem with your internet provider..
