I keep getting the above error when trying to sign in to my playstation account The connection with playstation network timed out (8002A548) My PS3 is connected via WiFi which is upstairs i have 65%+ Signal and I am fully connected to the access point, I can connect to the internet via the console and when I perform a connection test it reads -
Obtain IP Address - Succeeded
Internet Connection - Succeeded
Playstation Network - Failed
The playstaion has been working for the last year and now has suddenly stopped working, The network configuration has not changed and I can access the wireless network via other devices
I can successfully log-in on the Playstation website (and forum P....)
I have trawled through the internet and this forum looking for a resolution, but can only find basic troubleshooting. I work in IT and I would like to think I could of resolved this myself but im still having issues after several days, I did manage to connect today about mid-day for a hour then could not sign in after that, This makes me think that my internet speed is causing the issue, I get 7mb down and 460kb up on my machine upstairs so the connection is pretty good for the area.
I cannot wire in the PS3 to test but I have just purchased a 200Mbps Powerline Adapter (Adapter plugs into power socket so you can transfer data through the existing electrical wiring in the house) I am hoping this will resolve the issue
I have also tried changing the channel on the access point and explicitly unblocked the ports needed to sign-in on the PSN on the router
If anyone has any ideas other than the ones I have already stated then please let me know )
