It just keeps saying an error occurred during the communication with the server,this is a DNS error(80710102)..what do i do someone please help me????


I suspect a poor connection problem at the ethernet cable into the ps3.Push on this cable and the light should blink fast not slow.It worked for me after trying all sorts of remedies off the net that didnt help.As soon as i pushed the cable and held it there while re doing my network connections/test everything "succeeded" including system update.I let the cable go, and sure enough,"no ethernet cable connected"message and no internet connectivity!!! Havent fixed the connection yet as off to work, but now i know where the problem is. Hope this helps.

When I try to connect to the internet using a wireless connection, a screen comes up says "Communication with the server failed. A DNS error has occurred. (80410402)." How do I fix this problem?


if it is saying DNS error it is not a problem with the PSP, most likely a setting with your wireless router. or a problem with teh internet at the time of trying. check wireless settings on the PSP and make sure it has a number listed for DNS server.

Dns error


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.

My psp says communication with the server failed a dns error has occured 80410418 when i try to connect to the internet


you are typing in an incorrect address, DNS stands for Domain Name Server, meaning the address you typed was not listed.

Cant get internet connection on my ps


first check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.

try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following:
- explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address
- purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 168.126.63.1 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp

My ps3 wireless internet connection wont work!


Ok, sometimes consoles dont like to be on the same network as other devices so it causes Ip and DNS conflicts. You just need to play around with the settings till it works.

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).

That should work.
