error message: 80029020
  • what does the connection error 80029020 mean?
  • That code means the PS3 can't get or keep hold of a functioning IP address.

    Two possible solutions are disabling uPnP in both your router and the PS3 as well as setting up a reserved IP address for the PS3 and place this in the router's DMZ.
  • how do i do that?
  • Depends on the brand and model of router you have. head to the router manufacturer's web site and you should be able to find a .pdf version of the manual, which will have the step-by-step instructions.
