Hello mike_mcgill
Try the following steps:
1. Completely power cycle all equipmet before attempting to connect online. To do this, unplug all network devices from their power suppliies, e.g. modems and routers. Wait at least 2 minutes before turning them back on again.
2. You have stated that you have tested your internet connection. How? It may be worth contacting your ISP to confirm everything is working as it should be.
3. What type of router are you using?, e.g. 802.11b/g/n. If you´re using an n, this needs to be set to mixed mode. To find out how to do this, consult your routers manual, or contact the manufacturer via their website.
If none of the above steps work, there are other things you can try, but I will need to know how are you trying to connect to the internet, e.g. wired/wireless.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you require any further assistance. Good luck!

Getting error code 8071053d tried rebootin ps3 and internet not working still wont let me play online


The error code indicates that the PS3 is unable to contact the Playstation Network Servers. This may be caused by the PSN (Playstation Network) being under excessive load (often a result of new, significant DLC being released) or a problem with your router or ISP (Internet Service Provider).

  • On your Playstation 3, go to the Settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select Network Settings, then select Internet Connection Test. If you do not see success for Obtaining IP Address and Internet Connection, then there is a problem with the networking between your PS3 and the internet.
If you both of these connections prove successful, but you are still not able to sign in to the PSN, try:
  • Contact your ISP and see if they have some sort of outage in your area or are somehow hindering your connection to the Playstation Network.

Because PSN are carrying out system maintenance. There's nothing wrong with your PS3 or internet connection. Try signing in again around 9pm.
Hope this helps.

I cant log in, PLEASE help me.


first ..you do have your own rooter dont you?

the way you explain this problem sounds like you just logged onto which ever connection you found! did you or afamily member set up a commection using belkin54g?

back to basics!
in order to connect to the net with any device...PC (if you dont have a pc how did you send this post?)...Wii PS3 first you need to install and connect to your own internet connection device i.e.ASDL Broadband rooter..call it what you want

lol it sounds like you've been useing your next door neighbour's unsecured internet connection...nice cheap way to get connected.....but a bit of a bummer when text door go on holiday
i suggest setting up your own rooter (withyour own password)

I guessing you live close to a neighbor that has an unsecured wireless network. It is possible that they changed their security settings to block out other IP addresses (meaning your PS3). The best solution would be to establish your own internet connection and/or wireless network thru a local broadband internet provider.
