I get a message that says "an error has occurred. You have been signed out of PSN" and beneath there is an error code.
It worked fine on Thursday, August 14.
People of Texas please read & implement the following. Follow the quoted link & post back your results
Change your PS3/4 internet connection setting to manual.
Use the default option for everything except when you get to DNS servers
Input any two out of these four DNS addresses for your primary and secondary entries:
Keep accepting defaults for the rest of the settings and you should be up and running.
The first two DNS servers listed above are run by Google.
The last two DNS servers are OpenDNS.
I think TWC doesn't have their DNS server configured properly, so without the changes above, TWC customers will likely have to wait 24 hrs after Sony updated their server IP addresses for their DNS server to expire the old IP address and pull the new ones in.
I just loaded a video to YouTube showing how to change the DNS setting on a PS3.
Time Warner internet and no access to PSN? Here's ... - PlayStation® Forums

yesterday and today august 15th and 16th
An error has occurred 8071053d...... its not my internet provider either. Cause all my other stuff is working fine like my phones and computers in my house
-I can sign in only sometimes but gives me the error code (8071053D) if i click on a game, home etc.
Everything else internet related works fine, as in my laptop etc.
-On another note, i tried fixing it with the google dns (188.8.131.52) and when i signed into psn it worked fine, but i was downloading a game last night which usually takes me about 3hrs to download......and it's STILL downloading it's been 11 hours now.
So the google dns is fine for a quick fix... but the download speed on it is slower than my internet, i'm assuming because many others are on the google dns.
