I've just had a phone call from sister's brother (not related to me).
He's having trouble with his PS3. When he does the Network Setting's automatically, his IP address doesn't work. When he does it manually, he has the correct IP but doesn't know his Primary/Secondary DNS.
I did mine automatically, with no trouble. So I don't know what to do. All I know is that my "Default Router" is the same as my "Primary DNS".
So yeah, how should he go about connecting to the internet again? How does he find out his DNS?
If it isn't that then unfortunately you aint gonna have much luck finding out from other people, his best bet is to login to his router and it should say somewhere what his DNS Servers are.
Alternatively he could always look in the manual, I imagine it would have the default in there
^^yup to do that, he'll need to get them from his or a pc connected to his internet connection
To do that in XP he needs to left-click on start-go to run-type cmd and then enter ipconfig/all and press enter
the dns addresses should be listed under "dns servers"
enter these in the playstation settings
similar procedure if using vista, just gotta locate the run box...
Note: he'll need to be logged on as an administrator or with an account that has adminstrative privledges in either XP or Vista
Alternatively he can use OpenDNS dns addresses that will do the job and enter these straight into his PS3
Primary DNS: 188.8.131.52
Alternative DNS: 184.108.40.206
and best of all these are free
