Trying to get internet connection on my ps3

I've been trying to get an internet connection on my ps3 for a couple of days now and nothing seems to be working. the ps3 manual tells me that i need a cable modem and a dsl router. i've tried that way and when i test the internet connection it tells me theres a error or something and that it is a dsl problem. i really dont know what that means. plus i tried connecting the ethernet wire from ps3 straight to the modem, it told me the same thing. all i really wanna do is play online. can you guys help me out. P.S. i have my ethernet wire that i used for my ps2, dsl router, cable modem, and internet service, do i need anything else? thanks for your time

I once had the same problem. What i did is that i booted the modem and the Ps3 (turned both off) and then turned them on. Then i went to the internet settings on the Ps3 and tried the internet connection check and it worked! I hope you have some help of this.

I have been trying to get online with my PS3 for a couple of days now. I just got it and it doesnt seem to be working. I know it works because my friend used to own it and it worked fine. I bought a cord...


hellol josh, try this This does seem to be a hardware problem it has happened to people when updating with version 2.76 software and version 3.0 , 3.01 . Try reseting your ps3 by turning the power off then on at the back, then holding the on/off button on the front for five seconds untill it beeps twice . Then goto network settings and go custom go along all the obvious untill dns then go manual. On your p.c, goto run on the start menu , type in cmd an press enter , a black dos window will appear type in ipconfig/all . This gives you all your network settings scroll down to primary d.n.s and secondary d.n.s servers put those two numbers into your playstation . Everything else auto . Test connection good luck

My son has a PS3 connected through a linksys router (wireless ) in the uk. A couple of days ago his system didnt work and has changed some of the settings..doh I have changed the ssid back to what is...


If the PS3 wont accept your WEP or WPA password it is because it is not the one you chose when you set up the network. The first thing you should do is temporarily disable security on your network and try to connect with your PS3, just to be sure there is not a problem with your network.

If that works, enable either WEP or WPA encryption and choose a new password.

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 .

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.
