I am used to connect my PS3 to my home LAN in order to access contents on my pc, laptop and any other multimedia device on the network. Nowadays, I am faced with the problem. When I turn my PS3 on it is unable to connect to the network. When I check the network settings, I am told to check my DNS. What is a DNS an how can I fix this problem?

Ps3 lan connection DNS problem

DNS stands for Domain Name Server. It acts like a “telephone directory” on servers on internet.  It translates the hostname into IP addresses.  An example of this is shown below:

www.example.com translates to 93.184.216.119

If the Primary DNS is shown as 0.0.0.0 or the field is empty, your DNS is not being detected automatically.  You can contact your ISP and ask them for their DNS address.  Once you have it, you can manually enter it into the router’s setup.

Open your router’s setup (open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 – username and password will be “admin” if you haven’t configured your router)

Change the DNS to that obtained by your ISP

Or

Change Static DNS 1 to 208.67.222.222 and Static DNS 2 to 208.67.220.220
