I've seen a few posts here in the PlayStation® Community Forums about not being able to connect online to EA.
Over the years, I’ve had many problems connecting to EA games online. I’ve put together a post on all the solutions I’ve found. A link to this post is below.
Note that this link will take you away from the PlayStation® Community Forums and put you into EA's forums. I figured this was easier than duplicating the whole post here. Also, if I need to update any of the information, then I can just do so in the original thread.
I hope this helps other players who have had this same problem!
