Thank you again! I was about to call the Time Warner, but you saved me the trouble.
I find it odd that this only occured when the Infamous demo came out.

this is wierd. i'm kinda in a trance because of this. it's never done this before. if it was time warners' fault, i wouldn't be able to connect online on my pc either so....i dunno....i'm dumbfounded....
That's just it though. With TW, I could still browse the net with the PS3. I could also use any of my home PC's without problem. The only time I ever encountered a fault was when trying to log into the PSN network using the TWC supplied DNS addresses. Once I replaced those, the problem went away.
Think about it now. If it was a PSN issue, the OpenDNS addresses woudn't have worked for me or anyone else here either. But, since it did I think it's safe to say that the problem lies with your ISP. Don't forget that alot of ISP's including Time Warner depend on 3rd party DNS hosts. Just because you have TW, doesn't mean the DNS servers are owned and operated by them as well.
Thanks for your original post! I've been having problems for weeks and this cleared it all up! I have one question though: Where/how did you figure this out? I'm not really worried about someone hacking my PS3 or anything, they won't really get much information, haha. I'm just wondering how you came upon this. Thanks again!
well, that's just great. now all i need are the OTHER ones to fill in. here's where the **** hits the fan.....
i just tried again and filled in the primary and 2ndary dns with those 2 ip's u gave, and it wouldn't let me proceed unless i filled in the 1st slot (forget the name of it) and i can't sign in worth crap otherwise. i was just online about an hour ago playin Rockband 2 and it was all gravy. **bleep**. it's been like this, like i said, for a couple weeks or so. i really don't think it's time warner dude. i think it's psn, but help me dawg. lol i'm fienin.....

ok, i got it. i missed the 4th or 5th option for DNS input. i thought it wasn't in there at 1st, but i looked at the "menu setting title" and came across it.
IT WORKED!!! kudoed!!

What do you mean by "first slot"?
Replacing DNS addresses is just that; it shouldn't interfere with the rest of your ISP's settings.
You should have the following common settings depending on whether or not you're wireless or wired:
1. IP address (issued by your router)
2. subnet mask (again, normally issued by your router)
3. Default router or gateway (this should point to your router's IP; i.e. 192.168.1.1)
4. Primary DNS: (replace with OpenDNS 1)
5. Secondary DNS: (replace with OpenDNS 2)
The rest like MAC address, Proxy, UPnP, et al are router dependant.

thx got it working again
until sony figures it out ill use this
I don't think it's a Sony issue unless:
1. they changed something with PSN's network addresses causing a mismatch with your DNS providers lookup tables
2. the netcode used in the latest firmware is wonky, which is highly unlikely
I bet it's your ISP's DNS provider. Again, this is why a majority of respondents who have had DNS problems and tried this solution haven't reported back with additional issues.
BTW, my status says I'm a firble now. What the hell is a firble?
