Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

PS3 problem I have a DNS Error all the time while playing Metal Gear Solid 4 for the PS3. Sometimes that message would pop up then sign me out of the Playstation network. Other times I would get disconnected from the host and also get signed out of the PS Network, and sometimes too a message would say communication servor error. These problems only happen on that particular game. Sometimes I get disconnected from online play on other games but usually that can be fixed. I really want to play this game so badly. Please help me out, i would appreciate it.

I really wish I had a concrete answer for you. It may just be a coincedence that it happens only when you play that game. I have had that problem before myself, but it would happen with different games at different times of the day. As you know most of the popular games like MGS4 and COD4 are made and supported by diffent companies. This also means that the servers are in different locations and have a varied amount of people on each server. MGS4 is a newer game and I also had problems with the online play with that game as many people have.

As for a soultion. Some games require a stronger signal strength then others due to the amount of MB being transfered. I would try to use a shorter Ethernet cable if using a wired connection, or moving closer to your WiFi router if using WiFi, and completely resetting the network configuration. I know thats a pian, but if it works, it will be worth it! I really hope this helps you!! Good luck.

I can't sign in online I dnt no y but says DNS error


Following on from the PS3 3.50 firmware update today, we have started to hear of owners having problems logging on to their accounts.

We have heard of PS3 owners who have updated their system complaining that they cannot sign in, and every time they enter their password are getting the wrong password message. We have had customers who have two PSN accounts and cannot log into either of them. They are met with wrong password message, and even when they use "Forgot your Password" all that comes up is an error.

Conrad Zimmerman of Destructtoid is reporting that PSN is going to have some scheduled maintenance today. This could be why users are complaining of problems logging on to their accounts.

The maintenance is expected to take place during 8 am until 5pm Pacific time. There will be a lot of users who are at work during this time so it will not be a problem for them, but for everyone else it will be somewhat of an annoyance.

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 .

Playstation online problem


How are you hooked up to your Internet ? is it Via a WiFi Router ? if so, ensure that the router is compatible with the Playstation 3. Also, have you tried calling your internet service provider ? they are usually able to solve connection problems with regards to game consoles etc.

Hope this Helps !?
