When ever I get that problem it's the wirless router settings. Check the settings and make sure everything is set up right. Sorry, thats as much as I know about the DNS error on the PS3.

    You would have to check it on both. If you have a WEP secuity code on your router (which is recommended) it has to be entered into your PS3 during the the network setup. The Wep code has to be entered EXACTLY as it shows you in your router setting or it still will not work. Hope this helps!

    I would sugest you call Sony then. They may fix the problem for free, or over the phone! Good luck to you.

When i click find game for online game at call of duty the console write that connected with matchmaking server and thats it nothing so i cant play online.


Try doing a factory reset on the modem/router, also do a connection test on your PS3 and make sure that your NAT TYPE is 2 anything other than that will give you problems playing online. Let me know if you need help with getting your PS3 to a NAT TYPE 2.

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)


Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

Need help getting online with 80gb ps3 using ethernet cable.


Try going to the settings, then network settings, and then go to internet connection test, and then push yes when prompted. If there is an error still then maybe your connected wrong or you need to call your internet provider and let them know what is going on. They will walk through it with you.

It may sound crazy but alot of people may not be playing when you are or they are playing something else so the the computer(connection) is searching for some players for you.

PS3 losing connection in online games


either your connection is weak or you cant maintain a good connection to the servers. You can check your connection stregnth by going into settings, then network settings, and network connection test. after following the instructions, it will tell you the stregnth of your connection. if it is low (below 70 percent), you need to move your ps3 closer to the access point. The second problem cant be solved, it's the game company's fault.

Ps3 help


OK, so i just went through this whole deal and its actually not too hard, and i gaurentee you will never have to do it again...
1) hook your ps3 as a wired connection to your router, you may need to go buy a really long cable to do this if you cant move your router in distance.
2) connect it automatically through the setup and it should work fine and connect, if not then i think your fucked.
3) go to network setting > setting and connection status list, write down all the info you can which is shows.
4) unplug the LAN cable, and go back to wireless setup.
5) do a manual setup for IP settings, and type in all the info you have, but DONT type in a WEP or WPA... EVEN IF YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ONE (mine has one but i didnt need it, but if it doesnt work the first time then hell try your passkey)
6) click enter and test connection and it should work!!
hope this helps cuz i see alot of people asking the same question and i had to spend 3 hours figuring it out for myself.

How 2 get online with my ps3


if u are already on the net you pretty much just have to plug it in test your internet connection from within the ps3 menu and then sign up to playstation network which is free. you may also need to adjust your modem/router settings eg
1 ip from dynamic to static
2 enable UPnP
3 Eable DMZ

You can only sign into your Playstation account if you are using your own user profile on the far left of the XMB.

Do a Network test to see if you can even connect to PSN. Go to Settings, Network Settings, and do and Internet Connection Test.

if your test doesn't show your NAT type as either 1 or 2 then your router is being to restrictive. Try changing some of the settings to allow the PS3 full access to the internet.
