The dreaded DNS!! I hate that!!

Well, it does depend how close your system is to your router, WiFi or Ethernet. If WiFi doesn't work try the Ethernet. Have you tried reconfiguring the settings? For some reason sometimes the settings on the router will change by themselves. I have a WEP code on mine and every now and then I would get a DNS. I would go in and check the settings and the WEP setting was turned off! Make sure under the router settings you check the box that says "Changes can only be made by this computer". That helped me. Also if using WiFi, make sure you choose the right router name when you do the scan. Also, does it ask you to open ports??? If those don't work get back to me and we'll try some more solutions. I hope this helps you.

Good luck and happy gaming!!

My playstation 3 won't let me play games online. a box pops up saying there is a DNS error. what does that mean and how can i fix it?


Sounds like your PS3 is not finding your router or if you have a direct connection to your ps3 from the modem, that the NIC inside of the PS3 isn't finding the connection.

Here is an article that explains how to run the network setup for the PS3:

If you know your other hardware is working and you still can't connect, you could have an issue with the NIC in your ps3.

What does the DNS error mean(80710102) AND I HAVE COMCAST INTERNET


"When a DNS server error occurs, your PS3 will not be able to connect to your home network. This means you cannot take advantage of the many online features that the Playstation 3 has. There is no real reason why certain DNS server errors occur, but fixing them should be simple."

Here's a LINK to some info for ya.

Hope this helped.

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 .

Dns error when connecting how do I fix this


Unstable connection. if you have wireless connection that could be a problem depending on your environment. Try turning off your firewall too by calling your internet server(Comcast,DSL,etc.)

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.
