Sometimes it is difficult to connect your PlayStation 4 to a hotel’s Wi-Fi network. You can fix this problem by setting up a custom DNS server. Similarly, you can also set up security for the Wi-Fi network. However, if you don’t know how to do this, you may run into some problems.
Problems with connecting ps4 to hotel Wi-Fi
If you are experiencing problems with connecting your PlayStation 4 to hotel Wi-Fi, you may encounter an error message called CE 33991 5. The first thing you can try is to make sure your console is connected to the Internet and if you are, try restarting it and deleting and reinstalling the game if needed. Otherwise, contact PlayStation support for further help. Make sure you have the right password for the Wi-Fi network at your hotel.
If you can’t remember your hotel’s login credentials, you can try to login manually using your PS4 browser. However, you should keep in mind that hotel WiFi is typically password-protected and not open to non-guests. If you’re not sure what these passwords are, contact the front desk of the hotel and they will be able to help you. It’s important to check with the hotel’s terms and conditions because some may charge for internet access.
Using a custom DNS server to connect ps4 to hotel lan cable
You can use a custom DNS server to connect your PlayStation 4 to a hotel LAN cable, even if you don’t have a wired connection. To do this, go to settings > internet connection. Then, select custom set up. In the Primary DNS bar, type in your preferred DNS server, such as Google’s.
You should see an option to Set Up Internet Connection. Click on it. You will be prompted to choose a password. After you do this, you should see a message saying that your Internet configuration has been stored. You can also click on the “Test Internet” button to verify if the Internet connection is working.
If the PlayStation 4 doesn’t connect to a hotel’s wireless network, it’s likely that you’re trying to connect to a network at home. If that doesn’t work, try power cycling both your router and your PlayStation 4. If that doesn’t work, try modifying the DNS server address on your PS4 and router to see if it works.
Setting up security of the Wi-Fi network
In order to prevent malware from spreading, it’s essential to set up the hotel Wi-Fi network with a firewall. Creating a virtual private network, or VLAN, between the hotel and employee networks will help prevent hackers from infecting guest machines and network traffic. This type of firewall will also prevent infected devices from connecting to the guest Wi-Fi. In addition, the hotel should put in place a captive portal that requires guest login and acceptance of terms of service before they can connect.
Regardless of the type of hotel you have, it’s important to implement measures that protect guests’ data. These measures should include password policies and education for your hotel’s IT staff. It’s also critical to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
