Since update 3.60 My PS3 will not connect to the internet. My wireless signal strength is 100%, but when I test my connection the ps3 can't obtain my IP address. All my other wireless devices using my wi-fi connect fine. Any Help/Suggestions?

I manually entered in my ip address and it obtained the ip address but just would connect to the internet and said it was a DNS error (80710102)

Did you try to reset your router/modem?

I'm having the same problem. And I live in a residence hall, so I don't have access to reset the router. At first, it could get the IP address but it would give me the DNS error message, but now it can't even get an address.

It's possible another PC/console is using the IP now. Try changing the IP on the console and check the IP of your PC. You mentioned it's wireless, is it secured? Someone might be stealing your band. Just incase make sure to restrict all wireless use to reject all attempted connections unless the MAC address is a match (there should be an option somewhere in your router settings and your PS3's MAC is listed under system settings).

enter manually then . I get the dns error sometimes, it's mostly just random tho, and I can re-connect pretty much straight away.

set a static ip address and open up ports, search google for which ones
