Please shut down power to your router, modem, and PS3.

Then restart them in the order of :

Modem, Router, PS3.

Please leave them unpowered for several minutes.

This could be the source of your problem, and resetting is the first step to fixing!

Sounds like a problem with the firmware in your router. Connect
your laptop directly to one of the four ports with a cat 5 cable. Turn of your wireless adapter and connect through the cable.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a pop up box which asks you to enter a user name and password. The default user name is admin and the default password is admin or password. From there You will be all the settings you can control. You are looking for the one to go on line and download the current firmware update. This will most likely solve your problem. If your router was working fine before do not tamper with any of the other options. If this does not clear up your problem you will probably need a new router. You can also try Pushing the tiny reset button on the back and running the setup disk that came with your router. If this fails you definitely need a new router.
I hope this helps you. If you need more help feel free to contact me.

Cant connect to psn. But i can to internet. :(


One reason this may be happening is having the media sharing option on. Some routers can't handle all the requests the ps3 sends while having this option on. You're using a wireless connection right?

This sounds like you might need to open a port on your router or firewall to allow the PS3 to send info to the games specific server just because the PS3 has been given an IP address the PS3 still needs to connect through your router using NAT.

I suggest first turning off your Windows Firewall and your ISP firewall then into your router admin panel and open up the correct port then do the same on your firewalls.

Next, you need to enter these numbers for the PS3 to work.. so put these in the port start and end. 80 , 443 , 5223 , 10070 (start) and 10080 (end) , 3478 , 3479 , 3658 , 10070. They should be in both start and end except for the fourth which will have 10070 in start and 10080 in end.

The first 4 are TCP and the last 4 are UDP both types are required.

To me it sounds like you are hooking your PS3 through a computer to the internet. If so there is an easy fix for your problem. On your computer open Control Panel, and then open Network Connections. Right-Click on your internet connection and select properties, then on the top tab select Advance. This will open up your network sharing. In the box that says (Internet Connection Sharing), check the box that says (Allow other network users to connect through this computer's connection) click OK. Once you do this it will promt you with a message that some modifications made will not take place till the connection is reset. Then just log off the internet and re-log back on. Then proceed to start your PS3 and redo the internet connection settings on the PS3.

Internet Connection


On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings".
then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes".
go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan".
If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point.
Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one).
select "automatic" for everything.
select "Test Connection".
the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded".
If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.

Ps3


Can you give a little more information about your configuration? Are you connected at all? Do you know what is going on? Does your car have an automatic transmission? Do you have people hooked to the underground chopshop network? Have you relocated through a time portal? If you have, did you tell sony the problems people are having in the future with there PS3s? Did they commit you into an asylum? Did you call sonys tech support hotline? The number is 1-800-345-7669. I hope they can help you without having to unanswer your questions with more questions like these. If they don't know, I would suggest smashing it with a hammer.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


OK IF YOU HAVE PS3, and you get the ERROR DNS while trying to login into PSN, all u need to do is, shutdown the console, then restart it by holding down the ON button on the PS# not the controller till you hear 2 beeps, then try to login again, should work.
