Please help, cannot connect to PSN

8 replies 1351 views Edited Jul 10, 2012
For a week now ( and after the update) I cannot connect to Psn (very rarely). It just hangs on the sign in screen. I also cannot use Netflix, it says that there is an update and downloads the new version, but then says the new version is not needed and doesnt work. As far as the Psn, I can still connect to the Internet through the PS3 just fine. The connection test was as follows: Obtain IP Address: succeeded Internet connection: succeeded Playstation Network : succeeded UPnP: Not available NAT Type: Type 2 Connection speed download: 2.8 Mbps Connection speed upload: 625.8 Kbps I am really getting tired of this problem and am seriously thinking that an Xbox 360 is sounding good right now. Please help if you can.

Also, I have power cycled my router and done a password reset. This is a wireless connection.

Yes, Same here. I think its something that SEN needs to fix. It is nothing to do with our internet. Hopefully I will be able to sign back in today, if not today then tomorrow it should be working again.

I've been signed in to PSN, played online & synced my trophies today, PSN is working fine, the error must be a more local one.

Since I updated to the latest firmware 4.21, I am unable to connect to Playstation Network. I have Internet connection but connection to PSN fails.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

I am using a wireless connection to my Optus supplied cable modem/router . Do I need to open any ports in the router for PSN to work?

I figured it out, I had to disable the Media Server Connection, which sucks really, because now I have to re-enable it whenever I want to use my ReadyNAS DLNA server .... thanks Sony ... NOT!
