I dunno if this should be in a support forum or something but here it is.
So i just moved into my college dorm, and set up my TV and computer and PS3 and such. My roommate left tonight to go spend time with his girlfriend, so i figured it'd kick back by texting a girl from home, now that we're in different schools playing over PSN is the only thing we can do together with any regularly. So, when i plugged in the ethernet cable (I'm on the 19th floor, too high to get the wireless signal) i entered my password and everything, gleefully awaiting spending time with my girl, i got an error. "An error occurred during communication with the server. This is a DNS Error. (80710102). it says that exactly. i tried scanning for wireless and did an Internet Test, it was able to obtain an IP Address but failed to connect to the internet. Now, the wired connection to the internet at school seems a bit different than the connection at home. It's called "ResNET", and when i first connected i had to sign an agreement, accept a scan for programs like LimeWire, and enter my school online account password. and the internet was ready as it ever was on my PC. i could do anything from Facebook to Megavideo to World of Warcraft. so the service doesn't block out online games. How do i solve this DNS issue soon? is it a generic internet problem or do you think it may have arisen from the makeup of the University's connection. I'm pretty sure online games are commonplace here as i saw a dude playing Halo online earlier. all help is appreciated, i miss busting heads with my girl.
