Try these DNS Settings on your PS3.
Try wired and also wireless to see if this works.
If you do, make a note of your current PS3 DNS settings before just incase you need/want to set them back again.
On the PS3 Select:
Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings
Select Yes, then Custom
Choose your connection method - Wired or Wireless
If you're Wired, select Auto-Detect for the Ethernet Operation Mode
If you're Wireless, select the security type that your router is using and enter your Wireless Password
IP Address Settings - Automatic and then Do Not Set (DHCP host name)
DNS Settings - Manual and enter the numbers below
Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Secondary DNS: 188.8.131.52
Hope this helps.
How would I go about getting new DNS settings?
Hi there, Are you with virgin media?
Unfortunately a DNS change won't change anything, I made a thread showing to fix it, you can find it here
hope this helps
50% if the time I have no issues which is weird considering the problems everyone is having.
That's lucky, hopefully it don't gradually get worse.
Mine was terrible. At first I got the error occasionally, then constant so I switched to wireless where it worked flawlessly for about a month and then gradually turned to poo again.
But now I got this new router installed I haven't had a single problem regarding this.
I got StarHawk back at launch and played a fair amount of multiplayer before moving on.
Yesterday I decided to get the game off PSN and jump back in but I've ended up with this "Failed to connect. (#4 00080001 1 358) error.
Has there been any news at ALL of a patch coming up to fix the issue?
I'm really not much of a tech person, and most of the fixes I've found online either didn't work when I tried them or seem a bit beyond me.
(I don't really want to buy a new router for example...)
Unfortunatly there has been no fix for this issue.
I would not hold my breath for any fix to come in the future either due to LBI working on other games for the iPhone / iPad etc.
Both myself and Killcycle have managed to get arround this issue in different ways.
I play wirless which works fine for me.
Wired then I get the error.
Does this occur for you when connected wirless / wired or both?
I'm connected to the internet wirelessly, I don't have access to an ethernet port form my room so I can't try out a wired connection.
I'm with Virgin Media, but I'm afraid I don't know any of the finer details about the service we pay for.
