    need help connecting ps3 to router

    i am trying connect my ps3 via a wireless connection to my bt voyager 2091. its been working fine for months but all of a sudden it just stoped connecting with error code: 80710102 its says its a dns error. i googled this problem and it says i need to replace the mac address with the ps3 one on my router settings.( the one you type your ip in the web address bar).
    i brang the ps3 near the router and connected it via ethernet and it worked. when i try connecting it via wireless there is a dns error.
    anyone know how to solve this. rep for anyone that can help solve this issue.

    i would just disconnect it through the ps3 settings and try again. you should then get the option to set DNS to auto

    have you tried turning router off for a few mins?, seems strange it was working fine so why the need for settings change?
    ps you don't type your mac address in the address bar , that is your IP address, 2 diff things.
    ps post the make and model of router

    if none of the above works, you can access your router info such as IP address, gateway, and subnet via a pc running command prompt, and typing ipconfig. Then make a note of these details and set up the connection manually on the ps3

    has your ps3 had a recent upgrade ie software, there have been reports that some versions of the firmware crash out some settings.
