Dns error phone hotspot

9 replies 1352 views Edited Nov 21, 2012
Alright, yesterday I was on my ps3 playing for the entire day and the next day I get a error!
Im using my 4G phone's hotspot and my dns is 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4
I try'd seting everything to automatic and nothing happens, I've been searching many dns and this seems to only work when it wants to and im not sure what to do now about it, is their anyway to fix this?

You're using a phone, as a hotspot..... 

 

Thats reason enough to stop getting online until you can afford a proper home network connection

While it is not recommended to run a PS3 on 4G/3G connections, most online issues can be resolved by setting the DNS to 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

Nope.

 

 

You've probably already used up your maximum allowed data cap. Or you've downloaded too much data too fast and your phone company throttled your speed to be slower, which can cause thesse same issues if used as a hotspot.

 

The only reason why you dont THINK you lag on Black ops is because of a devil of a thing called Lag compensation. The game gives YOU the advantage due to having a worse connection as opposed to the hose of the match who has the best connection.

 

Sorry. But the only way to guarantee that you will have a pleasant online experience is to stop using you cell phone company. Because they DO have the right to charge you extra the more data you download, regardless if you have an unlimited data plan.

 

 

Happened to me. I downloaded 5Gb of data in just 1 week. For the rest of the month, I couldn't even send an email it took so long.
