unable to sign into PSN, PSN connection timed out

2 replies 213 views Edited Nov 10, 2011

Latest FW installed.  Everything worked fine till today.

Can access Internet with PS3, can't log into PSN and hence can't watch Netflix/Hulu.  Total fail that those apps require PSN when in fact they have nothing to do with it.

This isn't an ISP problem as the Internet works fine (i.e. Minecraft, Steam, browsing, etc.)

Please fix PSN timeouts on the PSN server side.  kkthxbai

I'm having the same problem as well.. seemed to be an on and off thing... last week wasn't able to sign in at all... kept getting a timed out message.

It seemed to work for me last night for a good solid few hours.  Now today it started acting up again.

I've tried just about everything I can think of.

-Port forwarding

-uPnP

-DMZ

-Tried 3 different routers (none made any difference)

-Direct connection to cable modem

-Contacted cable company to test my connection (Perfect @ 50Mbps)

-Rebuilt Database on PS3

-Created a new PSN account when I was able to log in

Nothing seems to work! Quickly losing faith in Sony!

MXBoost, what happens if you take your PS3 to a friend's house and connect there? Can you get a consistently good connection?
