There was a thread about this problem. A lot of us experienced it.

The new v2.0 firmware messed something up.

 

Luckily another user provided us with the solution.

 

Go to your WiFi settings.

Near the bottom of the list is an option to "disconnect Wi-Fi connection automatically".

Tick that box and everything will work!

 

Strange, I know. We have no idea why it works, but it does!

Glad to hear this solution has worked for you guys, but if anyone continues to have issues you can also try tweeting Ask PlayStation UK for direct assistance. (Operating hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 2:30pm to 11:00pm GMT)

Do you have a slightly less vague answer to the issue?

 

It's only recently that my Vita has ran into this issue, and it would be nice to have it fixed. I've been messing with all sorts of things on my router to get it to work properly, but it only keeps a connection for a few minutes before I have to disconnect > reconnect.

Hi,

I have received hundreds of message errors on my PS4  (NW-31189-2) and i can not log in with my account, therefore i can not play some of the games, connect to play store (please note that i can connect to internet and there's nothing wrong with my internet connection).

 

Do i have to send my PS4 to service? Did you had any problems at your PS network these days? Because yesterday i did connect to my account for a couple of hours and then i had encountered the same problem.

 

Please give me support.

Just when i thought i'd found the solution to my problems, this trick hasn't worked for me. Still getting time out errors. Any other settings people have noticed might help?

Here is how i fixed my Problem :

- Hard Reset my PS vita (Power off , Than hold down the Power button+Playstation button+R for 30 seconds to enter safe mode After this has been done , Reset your System (not the memory card) . You will be promted to Enter your Time , timezone , day , Ect. When you get to the Part where you have to SIgninto your account , say Set later than just do the "Trial account" thing , Than go to your Settings and do what the guy said ,

Go to your WiFi settings. Near the bottom of the list is an option to "disconnect Wi-Fi connection automatically". Tick that box and than restart your system. it will work
