Make sure that the ip address that you are getting is a valid one and you are connected to the correct wireless network. for example, if your router's ip address id, your computer should have an ip address of 192.168.1.x. if you are getting a valid ip address and you're still getting the dns error, the thing that you can do is set a static ip address and dns to your ps3.
if you don't know the dns to use, go to the command prompt and type ipconfig/all and it'll give you a list that'll contain the dns servers. copy the dns and enter it on the ip settings of your ps3 together with the default gateway (ip address of the router), subnet mask (it's usually and your ip address (make sure that the ip address that you'll set on the ps3 is not being used by any of your computers)

hope this'll help you and just ask me if your still having any problem

    it could be possible that it's a modem concern but have you tried connecting a computer directly to the modem and check if you'll have internet access. if you do have internet access using a computer, most likely that you need to open some ports in order for the modem to allow access to your ps3. but if your computer is also not able to connect to the internet, it could be possible that the modem is not properly configured to provide internet access.

    just some clarifications: was the ps3 working properly before with the modem? what is the model of the router that you are using and are you online using the router? and what is the ip address that you have set on the ps3?

    before opening the ports on your modem, you can try first this step: go to your ps3 settings and turn off "media servers" (Network Settings > Media Servers > Disabled)

    i'll not be able to provide you a step by step solution on how to open ports on your modem and i'm not one hundred percent sure if the modem has that option since i was not able to find a user guide for your motorola sb2400 since it's not listed under the motorola products. usually all you need to do in order to access the modem's page is open a web browser, using a computer that is directly connected to the modem, and the type the ip address of the modem. once you're on the modem's page, look for "port forwarding" or "port triggering" and it'll ask you for the ports to open. if it'll ask you for an ip address, type the ip address that you have set on your ps3. here's the list of the ports that you need to open:

    Playstation Network Required Ports
    TCP 80
    TCP 443
    TCP 5223
    UDP 3478
    UDP 3479
    UDP 3658

    Remote Play & Gaming Required Ports
    TCP 80
    TCP 443
    TCP 5223
    TCP 9293
    TCP 10070-10080
    UDP 3478
    UDP 3479
    UDP 3658
    UDP 10070

    just in case opening the ports will not solve your problem, try to look for "dmz" and enable it. that'll open all the ports on your modem. you can also try to disable "upnp" feature if it'll allow you. if above steps are not able to fix your problem, you can try to update the firmware of your modem or contact your ISP just in case there are other firewall on the modem that'll affect the connectivity to your ps3.

    hope this'll help you

I have a TP LINK router, it transmit signal properly. the problem is when the 3G USB internet modem is fixed into it, it does not send internet signal so the laptop shows TP Link signal: excellent, but no...

To solve your problem:
go here

Basically what you have done is plugged it in but did not set up the router on a static or dynamic IP address.

Once you have established the IP address of the router and it is recognized by your ISP device (DSL, Cable, Satellite modem ....etc etc.) then you have to decide which device will be the DNS server and assign IP address to all the wireless devices that connect to it.

Lots of things can be wrong. You need to follow the steps on the set up link i gave you properly and in the correct order

TP-LINK TL-WA730RE is not allowing internet access due to DNS not be broadcast correctly. Skype and outlook (no DNS needed) are working fine.

yeah same here. You have to find a way to give the DNS settings to WA730RE.
2 Options or use the Dynamic mode of getting the ip in the WA730RE or use a custom firmware where u can configure this setting.

On ps3 coming up as dns error

The settings on the ps3 are wrong by the sound of it. You should have the dns set as the address for your router, that in turn should use the dns from your isp.

so say you router is

then your ps3 settings should be something like:

ip address:
subnet mask:

Replace with your routers actual IP address.

The ip address can be any unused address from to, unless you've restricted the address range,.

Gateway just means your router.

Subnet mask tells the computer what network to send data on, always the same unless you're using more than one network connected together.

Hope this helped.

I have a optus usb modem plugged into laptop using vista. i am trying to connect to the internet on my playstation 3. i have enabled ICS and entered the IP address, DNS numbers from the command promt...

Depending on if you're using a Dial-Up Connection or a Broadband Connection, the solution is quite different. If you are using a Dial-Up connection, the PS3 will have to do the dialing. In your case, I do believe that you are using an Ethernet (Broadband) Connection which is always on. In order for your PS3 to get Internet access, you will need to get a router and install it before you can get online with your PS3.

Cant access internet but can connect to wireless TP-link router

Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

Connects but no internet connection being allowed through.

You should configure your Router as a "router" or as a bridge. Usually, you can access the router's IP via web service (using http://ip.address.of-this.router). In this web access, you can modify your router configuration to act as router or bridge, also you have to specify the DNS, DHCP configuration as well.
Maybe with posting your Type of router, i could help you more with it...

Dynex 4 port ethernet router

When the TCP/IP is set to dynamic or "Obtain Automatically", the default gateway is supposed to blank. The default gateway address of your network is actually the router's IP address.

What is the IP address that you get when you performed step 3?

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,

PS3 access problems to media server on wrt350n

I believe a simple solution to this beings with assigning a static IP address to the PS3

IF your router is and
your subnet mask is

and your DHCP range is for
50 licenses to 192.168.149

The address your PS3 between and

Configure you PS3
IP address192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Address
(for the above DNS address to work you must have loaded the ISP assigned IP addresses into the router which you probably have alrready done.

Let me know if this does not work. I will respond to messages here until we resolve the issue.

Then on you router your DMZ address should be set to (your PS3's IP Address)
