Hi xDarK_Bab3x,

 

Have you tried restoring default setting on your PS3?

 

If you go to System Settings > Restore Default Settings it will reset your Network Settings so you can set this up again from the start.

 

The error code usually refers to disconnecting a device too soon, and a data transferring issue.

 

Let me know how you get on.

Hi there,

 

Have you tried this through an ethernet connection as well. If you do try through an ethernet, I would attempt to reset the the modem or router (or combo) prior to attempting a wired connection. If for example you unplugged the ethernet on a PC and plugged into the PS3 it frequently doesn't work, or detect the modem, as you describe. Resetting the network devices each time reconfigures it for the wired device.

 

Have you also recently swapped Internet Service Providers as well?

Thank you for the advice. The Ps3 found the modem and connected. But when i tried to sign in to Psn, it disconnected again. oh and we changed our modem this morrning. Btw it started being like this since we changed our modem(today)
@steve
I tried connecting through the laptob and it did. So no problem with other devices. :smileyhappy:

Re: Error 8001000A?

Yeah I just had this problem, my internet was working fine on my laptop and I'd been downloading a game overnight on my ps3 and then it just stopped. I did the internet connection test and it told me it couldn't find an IP address because of error 8001000A, I switched off the router and switched it back on again but still no difference, my laptop was still hooked up fine but nothing from the PS3, I figured maybe the PS3 was a bit overworked because I hadn't turned it off for about two days so I turned the PS3 off, left it coll for a few minutes, turned it back on and it was fine, hooked up to the internet and downloading again, weird.

Re: Error 8001000A?

I updated my ps3 31.8.2012 and after that i got that same message. My internet connection works with my 2 computers and with my phones so my connection is not the problem, it has to be with ps3. Internet setup from ps3:s internet connection settings doesn't find any wireless connections. I tried to enter all the info manually and started connection test but it fails immediately when obtaining IP address, like it doesn't even try. 

 

After restarting ps3, i got following message after failed to login: "An error occured during communication with the server. This is a DNS error. (80710102)". After numerous restarts i started to get "wrong e-mail or password" error. After correcting e-mail and password i get that DNS error.

 

I could try with ethernet cable but it requires me to pull 25m of cable and what use it is to have wi-fi if it doesn't work?

Re: Error 8001000A?

AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH this error

 

this is F***cking rediculous,
Its defiantly something to do with the playstation, am sick of pages saying try different routers,cables etc its nothing to do with them. all the computers in the house pick up wireless and wired connections.

 

The PS3 is just dropping it connection and the wired and wirless dissappear as if someone as took the facility away from the machine.

 

So come on sony get it sorted
