I have been attemtping to go on the internet through the use of a wireless device. I am able to get the IP adress part to work but the DNS part always fails. I've tried every way I can think of to fix this problem. I even used a cable and tried it wired, but the same thing happened, I got the IP adress but no DNS. If you know of a way to fix this problem, somone who can, or where I need to go your help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Re: PS3 40gb, no DNS available
Have you used the automatic settings for the two different connection types (wired and wireless)? You should only need to enter this information if you want to use DNS servers other than the ones provided by your ISP.
You can read more about internet connections on the PS3 with this link: Playstation.net
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Please go to command prompt and type ipconfig /all. This will show you the dns adresses assigned to the etehrnet or wireless adapters. Try to ping that dns address. If you are not able to ping the dns address, assign static ip and dns addresses to the computers.
it might be that your security settings are wrong make sure that you chose the right encryption settings for example wpa or wpa2 if you have a dns issue make sure you can use your wireless with other devices. if cant then reset your access point
For Router drivers is not required ,U can configure though the command prompt
I can tell some configuration try it,
the default ip adress of the router will the 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.0.1
In your Lan card configure,
1. obtain Ip adress automitically
go to command prompt----type ---ipconfig---check the ip address which ip is getting---
go to internet explorer ----type the ip address in adress bar-----------login page will get---
login as, user name admin
password admin------configure your internetip adress & DNS ip address,save & check.............
Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can
connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's
set. If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or
WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key.
You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key
for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network
is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.
If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I
suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the
Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask,
default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your
Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System
> Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).
when using a static IP you must also get the DNS server addresses from your router's manufacturer. the primary/secondary DNS for D-Link routers are 188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206 respectively. contact the customer support line of your product or do a Google search for"_______ dns" (____ being your product name)
If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration")
IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network.
For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually
Gateway = 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1)
Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network
Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round
