Re: Definitive solution for your DNS error problems!!!!! (Works for all ISP's)

OpenDNS is a free-to-use DNS server.  There are many others out there like it, but OpenDNS has a good reputation for security and reliability.  You could also use DNS servers from other ISP's if you care to do so; you'll just have to find those addresses yourself.

 

Dammit! It didn't work for mine! 

 

Seem like it's working for everyeone.

 

These are the steps I took:

Network Settings:

 

1. Select a setting method: Custom

 

2. Select a connection method: Wired Connection

 

3. Select the operation mode for the Network Device: Manual

 

4. Speed and duplex: There's several options but I select 'Auto-detect'

 

5. IP Address setting: Manual

 

6. * This is the step where I might be missing something. Please help me right here.

 

- IP Address - 00.000.00.00

- Sub-net Mask - 255.255.255 (default to PS3) **However, the sub-net mask from my router is 255.255.252** does it matter which I use? I tried both and both times the connection test failed.

- Default Router - 00.000.00.00

- Primary DNS - 208.67.222.222

- Secondary DNS - 208.67.220.220

 

Is there something I'm missing or doing wrong? Where there is a 0, I entered my router's IP and Default Router info.

 

7. MTU: Automatic

 

8. Proxy Server: Do Not Use

 

9. UPnP: Enable

 

10. Test connection; and fails the internet connection and says it's a DNS error.

 

So any assistance?

 

I tried it a few times and keep getting the same message. Thanks for the help.

Even though this works. I still feel it's a PSN/Sony issue. The reason I say this is because my computer connects to the Internet, My wife's laptop connects to the Internet, Xbox 360 Connects to the Internet, but my PS3 doesn't? I think it's an error on Sony's side that is conflicting with our ISP DNS servers. If it was our ISP, none of our other toys would be connecting.

 

If everything else is connecting in your house except your PS3, how is that our ISP? I think it's pretty shady that Sony hasn't stepped up to the plate and addressed this yet. Common sense should tell you with so many people on this forum complaining about the same thing, all with different ISPs, and everything else connects to the Internet except the PS3... It has to be on Sony's end.

 

Granted this is a fix, but why the hell should we have to surf around for a fix... Sony should be the one doing the "fixing" IMO. I understand some of you are just content with playing, but this needs to be addressed by the powers that be. It's only going to get worse.

You may very well be right and this issue could be the result of poor netcode in Sony's latest firmware.  However, I still believe that it's a routing table issue with people's DNS providers.  Who knows; perhaps many ISPs share the same DNS provider, hence the reason for multiple failures across the ISP range.

 

I still suggest that people try this solution instead of wasting time trying to talk to their ISP tech support.  If this works for you for now, then you can get back to gaming instead of trouble-shooting.

How has it worked for your GF's PS3 so far?  Has the solution solved her issues as well?

I changed my DNS entries to the Open DNS ip's, but now it's taking forever to log into PSN. Is this happening to anyone else?
