Getting error code 8071053d tried rebootin ps3 and internet not working still wont let me play online


The error code indicates that the PS3 is unable to contact the Playstation Network Servers. This may be caused by the PSN (Playstation Network) being under excessive load (often a result of new, significant DLC being released) or a problem with your router or ISP (Internet Service Provider).

  • On your Playstation 3, go to the Settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select Network Settings, then select Internet Connection Test. If you do not see success for Obtaining IP Address and Internet Connection, then there is a problem with the networking between your PS3 and the internet.
If you both of these connections prove successful, but you are still not able to sign in to the PSN, try:
  • Contact your ISP and see if they have some sort of outage in your area or are somehow hindering your connection to the Playstation Network.

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?

PS3 Internet Connectivity Problem - 80028E01


Hi,

Restore your router to factory settings, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks

the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .

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.
