A DNS server stands for domain name service. The DNS server translatesnames from IP addresses. The internet sees IP addresses such as 209.235.250.53 but the DNS server provided by your ISP translates it for you into fixya.com. You should be able to aquire the DNS server information from your internet provider (ISP) hope this helps.

Dns error eventhough wifi connection is excellent


You will need to set your wireless connection to a static IP adress.

Try 192.168.1.67 (if linksys router, if others try 0 rather than 1) The last three digits on this line can be anywhere from 2 to 255. They must not match any other device on the network, including the router.
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway needs to be the routers IP. 192.168.1.1 (if linksys router. If others try 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.1.2)
and the DNS also needs to be the same as the routers IP. See above. ^

Goodluck!

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!
