503, service unavailable usually its server side, but in this case.. if it was the forums would be going nuts

 

 

have you tried resetting any modems/ routers that your using?

you could also try re-running the network setup on the PS3..  ive seen a PS3 have trouble accessing the store (online gaming was fine) and the problem resolved itself after the network was setup again,

or by some rare chance, are you using a more complicated network that the norm?.. like any ISA or proxy servers that your PS3 goes through?

 

 

unfortunately you cant download game updates via a PC

well i just use a router with a SIM card, but i never had a problem with it, updates and online gaming was gr8, the only change i did was turn the router off, but thats it, i can log on to PS3 network and surf the net, but i just can't update anymore..

 

U said network set up, what ya mean? how ps3 connect to the internet or my account? when i got this problem, i changed to wireless instead of the ethernet cable. and still same thing. so do u think it could be a internet connection thing, the only difference in my connection is my provider is having maintence so the speed isn't the best.

by network setup, i was refering to how your ps3 accessed the internet (direct connection or via a server you have setup at home - just on the off chance you had a technical setup).

 

Since your using a 3G/HSDPA connection and you also mention "my provider is having maintenance" another 2 possibilities could be that either due to the maintenance your provider is having issues with you establishing a direct connection, or maybe they are pished at the amount of data being used? and stopped downloads from happening.

 

are you able to download anything from the store? - one of the free LBP costumes will be perfect as its small and free

 

Also, i know this is a long shot but try re-running the network setup on the ps3.
