    DNS nightmare

    I am getting constant DNS errors. I can sign in but get kicked out, can't download even though I'm logged in. I got Fibre power broadband a couple of months ago and have downladed & played online without any trouble until last couple of weeks. I have tried most available online solutions but none work. Anyone got any ideas?

    to anyone else experiencing this problem change to wired connection for an immediate fix

    Wired or wireless connection?

    I experienced similar issues last night a couple of times. I restarted my router and it seemed to fix it.

    Do what Hitman says and reset your router. When I had a wireless connection and was having trouble with it, the majority of the time it was fixed by resetting the router and PlayStation.

    I had this issue last night while on the PS4. Resetting the router seemed to fix it like Hitman suggested.

    You could try changing some settings, giving your PS3 a static IP and setting it as a DMZ server. That may be a bit extreme, but if resetting the router and PS3 isn't working, may be worth a shot.

    Well, then sell your house and move to somewhere with better Interwebz.

    Set your DNS manually to Google's servers - 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 on your PS3.

    If that doesn't fix the problem something else is afoot and you should call your ISP.
