Problems With PS3 wireless internet - DNS error

10 replies 236 views Edited Aug 23, 2007
I have a Linksys wireless router, and the internet on the PS3 was working fine yesterday, but now whenever I try to connect it can obtain the IP adress, but it can't actually connect to the internet (and it says there is a "DNS error" ).  Could someone please help? 

(I also changed somethings around on my routers settings, so that could have something to do with it).

Do you have the right WEP/WPA key?

I have the WEP key (I'll try entering it in again, though, just in case I did it wrong before) and my router is about three meters away from the PS3.  Ahaha.  I'm pretty sure it does the same thing with a wired connection, though.  ;0

When my router does this to me I just shut it off for about 10 seconds and then turn it back on

ive had this problem many times still having it now..you just have to wait it out
i was playin COD4 online went to the store came back i was signed out and couldnt sign back in, with the same error you got
what can you expect from somthing thats free?
the only thing that happens if you keep messing with it is you get mad, when it wants to work again it will
i feel you on this one though mine stopped working for a week before..think im gonna get a 360
