    The problem is not with the modem, I can connect wirelessly to it. My other computers are working fine with the same IP address, and getting online with internet explorer.

    I just can't connect through internet explorer programme to get online on my little notebook. I used to be able to, then it just stopped. I can't connect to any websites.

Open the network protocol ..and take a look on the support ..and see if any servers are allocated...if there are not is either a matter of drivers for the network card ..or the provider has a temporary issue with the connection ...The servers on the modems can be manually inserted if you get into the browser ..and type the http://ip of the modem ...and hit enter..
the modem's IP address is written on the label ...This way you will be directed to the modem's settings and if you know the server you can manually insert it ..and save changes..
But I think first you should unplug it from the power source for 30 seconds and plug it again ..and see if it gets the server automatically ...and also call the provider..cause if you use the tcp/ip protocol with assign an IP address automatically means that your lack of connection to the server is the provider's fault ...(you can check it by connecting another computer for a moment and see if it works ..this way you will know that it is a fault of the notebook ..and look for the LAN driver to reinstall ...

Can 807101 ps3 be solved

If you keep getting this ps3 error 807101ff, then somethings definitely wrong with your online communication. To be specific, you are having what it called a DNS error. You see, the DNS settings on your network is your means of contacting and communicating with an online server. In the case of the ps3, that online server happens to be a game server. Without a correct DNS setting, your online network is "doomed", or put in another way, useless.

807101ff problem? It's really quite easy! What you can do is to try the POWER CYCLING method. To do this, turn off your ps3 and all of your networking devices like the modem and router. Remove the power cord of the router and modem as well, to be sure. You then wait for a short while, like a few minutes.

After the short wait, you can now connect back the modem and turn it on. After you get a solid light on the modem, connect back the router. The last thing you turn on is the ps3. This way, your ps3 would be able to try obtaining an IP address. Likewise, it will also try to establish a stable DNS setting. This technique works most of the time in solving the problem

Hope this helps you!

Any further questions feel free to ask.

PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection

Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .

How to connect my usb modem to the ps3


Get a Modem and a Router in order for both computer and PS3 to be online at the same time.

PS3 assumes that it is connected to a router/gateway and is not designed to have a modem directly connected to it as would need additional hardware/chips incorporated.

I cant get onto internet explorer it says dns error can you help?

Check out your internet connection and its settings, whether it is dial up or broadband oriented.
then you have to know about your ip address of dns server in the network setting places.
you just ping the ip address of dns server following as...

go to start, then run and type "cmd", and it shows the command prompt. type as following format.

ping and press enter key.. this is the sample ip address only. if it gets reply, your dns server is ok. you can use internet. suppose, it wont comes, ask your service provider or support for another or different ip address of dns to check it out.

You need to check the DNS server. Press user tools, system settings, interface settings. This screen will display IP address settings. There is a DNS selection. Put the Ip address for the DNS in there. (obtain by, Windows desktop screen, Start, run, type cmd in the input box, enter, at the prompt, type ipconfig /all. it will bring up your settings. write down the DNS setting.)

Now, your SMTP server setting can be obtained by going into your Email account settings. There will be a spot for servers. If you are using Microsoft exchange server, you can use the server name or its IP address. Otherwise, it will be your ISP email server setting. You can just call your ISP and get the outgoing server name. Once obtained, go into user tools. system settings, file transfer and plug in into the SMTP option. I think if I'm not mistaken, there is a connection test there as well. (The 024 might be too old to have that) That should do it. You may need to enter in a email name and password for athentication.

If you have any problems, you can call the Lanier help desk too. 800-424-1573

DNS problem

Try setting up your network connection all automatically when connected to a router who acts as a DHCP server. DNS server addresses are also automatically configured via DHCP.

Make sure it can reach your router.

PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection

for mine i tried other fixes and they didn't work. Turns our my router had enabled security but the PS3 had forgotten the password (WEP key).

I turned off the WEP on my router and the PS3 suddenly found its connection.

To say I was getting stressed is an understatement, Sony should put something on their website, it seems like a really commonm problem to which people have no clear route to solution.
