There was an issue updating the PS3.
Turn off and unplug the power from the PS3 and wait 10 seconds before powering back on.
Turn on the PS3 and try to update the system again.
If you still have problems, you will have to send your system in for service.
I can no longer sign into psn. when i do a connection test it says it can't find my IP address, but my internet is working fine and it worked a minute before on ps3 when i downloaded the update. any help?

i have had the exact same problem for a while ,and there is nothing wrong with my system either ,yesterday it did a system update and everything seemed fine ,it even loaded the home page and later wouldnt sign in at all ,then later it told me there was another update so i took the PS3 into the other room and connected directly to my router (ethernet cable) and it told me i was up to date ,if there are some problems at the sony end i understand and will be patient ,but why why why wont sony just tell us,iv been going to a lot of trouble thinking the problem is mine ,and it isnt
I , like many others went ahead with the 4.25 update.
Immediately, I found myself unable to log in for almost two hours after the 4.25 update.
Now I can sign in [sometimes] and when I do my friends list doesn't load entirely - and I can't play any games online. I first tried Dark Souls, which I'd been playing heavily and put well over 100 hours[playing online] into the week before this update.I also had been playing the RE6 Demo and now that doesn't work online either.
No changes to my internet were made during or prior to this issue- only the 4.25 Update happened and the entire boat sank after that.
I waited a day or so, because apparently this connection issue isn't related to 4.25- but it's simply too coincidental for me. I played online just as much as any other ps3 addicted person prior to this update, and now I can't do anything. No soul signs in Dark Souls, games disconnecting instantly on RE6. This is ludicrous.
