PS3 DNS Error – fix for Linksys Routers (error number 80710102)

The recurring DNS error on the PS3 is extremely frustrating!! Here are the changes I made to get it to work based on information that I found online. I took screenshots because it’s easier to see than explain.

1) 1)      On the PS3, go to “ Settings” then “Network Settings” and then “???????????” to get the MAC address of your PS3. Write it down.
2)     Log into your router (eg is the address I set for mine).
3)      Click on “Applications & Gaming” then select “Single Port Forwarding”.
4)      Decide what static IP Address you will select for your PS3 (eg I selected for my PS3).
5)      Enter the following information below (however, replace with your chosen PS3 static IP address):

  Next click on “Port Range Forwarding” under “Applications & Gaming”.

7)      Enter the following information below (however, replace with your chosen PS3 static IP address):

8)      Next click on “QoS” under “Applications & Gaming”.

12)   Select “Management”
13)   Scroll to the bottom and “Disable” Upnp (see below)

14)   Now, on your PS3, go to “Settings”
15)   Then select  “Network Settings”
16)   Then select “Internet Settings”
17)   Manually set the IP address of your PS3 to the static IP address that you selected above  (eg I chose
