Update your PS3 to the latest firmware. That should fix ir.

If not, change your Wireless AP to use WPA version 1. Theres a WPA2, but dont use that. its not compatible wirh the PS3 yet.

Google "your internet(this is your broadband company) provider dns adress" it should show you your "domain name server(this is what dishes out the IP adresses on your current isp) then just enter this into the specified place

its format is normally .... 123.345.67.89 etc

My PS3 would only connect using WEP encryption , so I had to downgrade my WPA capable router in order to go wireless.

Connetion error 80130128


1. on pc, run -> cmd
2. ipconfig
3. Read the "gateway" ip. Put that into browser to go to router's admin page
4. Find the DHCP settings for router to see what range of IPs it hands out; pick one outside that range
5. Set up the ps3 with that IP, the router IP as primary dns, and an opendns server as secondary This made the connection test happy. But when he tried to go to the playstation store, it gave a DNS error. If he repeated the connection test again, it failed too. "Well," I told him, "It's supposed to try both DNS servers. But we can try setting the primary DNS server to opendns as well." Once he did that, everything worked. (In case you don't know, Run is on the Start menu, usually on the right-hand panel.)If you try that, it might well be possible that your problem is solved. If this doesn't work for you, please call our Network Call Center

  2. Other suggestions:
    • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.
    • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
      • Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Wii console is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal. (For instance, if the Wii is placed in a crowded entertainment center, try moving the Wii somewhere with more room.)
      • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.

I am trying to sign in and it is saying an error has occured.this is a dns error. 80710102.


I fixed this problem by just changing my wireless routers wireless channel from 6 to 11. and maybe if yours is on 11, switch it to 6. I know it sounds simple but thats all I had to do with mine. I did run cmd then typed ipconfig/all and i manually put all the ip, gateway, dns, numbers into the ps3. then when I would test it, it would say the whole DNS error, then I switched the wireless channel and it connected and I have not had any problems since. I hope this works for you

Can't connect to the internet wireless, I get a DNS error (80710102)


Try disabling the "WEP" key on you router. I've read the solutions from other contributers and tech's and this solution seemed to really work.

If you are connecting through your wireless router, you should just let it auto obtain an ip address and auto obtain dns. Is DHCP on in your wireless router?
DNS is the ip address of a server that resolves names like www.something into an ip address. Your ISP usually gives you these numbers.


dns=domain name system
