Trouble setting up playstation network


Recommended Posts

In the Network Settings area when you set up your network through the wizard through Internet Connection Settings, don't click on "automatic" or "easy". Actually input some numbers in manually for the DNS address...

Use this one. It's free to use for anybody, and I use it myself:

208.67.222.222

Enter it for both the primary and secondary.

You'll also have to input your IP address, etc. manually. If you're using a router, for the IP address, use a number on the far right that safely exceeds the number of devices you would have connected to the network. For example, if you have 5 devices, enter a number like 10 so it would be

XXX.XXX.XXX.10

This is to be safe with any interference while obtaining an IP address. Using a static IP for the PS3 is a good idea, especially if you want to tweak firewall settings just for the device. You can set it in a DMZ, or just forward specific ports of you need then. <-- You don't have to, but you may need to if you're firewall settings are refraining you from playing online properly.
