View Full Version : Rainbow Six DNS Error - Possible Fix

07-17-2007, 06:02
I was having all sorts of trouble with DNS errors while using online play w/ Rainbow 6. Whenever I replied to a game invite, it would time out while in "joining game" mode with a DNS error. I would continue to get this error while trying to find a new game until I reset the online play.

While searching around for a fix I understand there's a lot of people having this problem. I tried numerous things including re-installing the router, switching from wireless to wired connection, etc. In one of my searches I found a possible fix that seems to have worked with me:

Along with the new firmware, a new media server option has been added. After going into Network Settings and disabeling media server, my DNS error problem has seemed to go away.

For some extra info I'm currently using a Linksys WRT54GS. I currently have my PS3 directly wired to the router.

Hope this helps for anyone else having the same issues.
