The past 2 days I've been trying to sign on PSN ... And it wont let me. I've done the network scan and always fails at the PSN...
I disconnected everything, modem, router, even rebooted the ps3... And nothing works, if by some slim chance it lets me sign online, it kicks me off within 5-10min.
I came on to the forums to find a solution and to see what's going on; I'm in total shock that problems like this has been going on since the update, and still having an effect on new users daily. There isn't any public statement, no confirmation that they are still working to fix things... I'm very displeased with Sony, and how they act with their loyal customers.
I'm already regretting switching to PS3! If it's always going to have crashes & problems like this, I'm sorry to say I will be boycotting Sony. I don't pay for consoles and games for them to sit there and look pretty.
One unhappy user.
[P.S. I updated from 4.21 - wireless - slim]
While what I thought was a upgrade from a 160 slim to a 500 super slim really wasn't. My slim had the current firmware and I never had any problems with it, so naturally I updated the firmware on my ss... big mistake. Playing online is impossible now because I'm unable to stay logged in for anymore then 7 mins at a time, even now as I type this I just disconnected from psn... fun times. I mean this ps3 is barely a day old and I'm already having problems. I feel that if I buy an updated ps3 it should work as well or better then the one before it, I am sorely mistaken. Seeing how this thread is 30 days old with over 60 pages I don't foresee a fix anytime soon(y). Has sony ever posted on this thread saying something like "we're working on it" or anything?
I think I'm at 4.30 160gb ps3 and it sometimes wont let me connect to the internet. I try connecting wirelessly and it cant obtain ip address apparently even though the rest of the computers work fine. I've tried resetting the modem and it still wont work.
PS3 fat - 60 GB model
Firmware 4.30, updated from 4.20.
I'm having bandwidth issues while trying to download AC3 from the PSN-Store. My internet conection is that of 10Mbps, the PS3 is connected to internet via a WIFI network, NAT type 2, but the download speed doesn't go beyond 100KBps, where in other electronics such as my notebook, it averages at about 1MBps.
My ps3 just makes me sad when I look at it.
60 gb fat. Since the day this patch hit, I can't turn on my ps3 for more then 5 min. It just shuts down. Never a single problem until this patch. I can't even keep it on long enough to patch to the new patch. No response from Sony, no help. I'm beyond mad. I'm just sad.
Never will I buy another Sony gaming device again. Never will I recommend one either. All I wanted was interaction. A sorry. But nothing.
To think I sold my Xbox elite for this.
