Problem with PSN in UK?

14 Replies 949 Views Created 27-09-2007
My PS3 has been unable to connect to PSN this week at all. Does anyone know if there is a problem with PSN in the UK at the moment.

I've had very few problems connecting to PSN in the time I've had the PS3 (3 months), so this is unusual.

I'm on Virgin Media cable 4Mb broadband.

Hi!
Had the same problem! Solution: switch off PS3 from the back and take the power cord out for 30 min then reconect again. It should work then. I guess ur error msg says DNS error. Hope it will help. Good Luck buddy!

I already tried a full switch off. Not a DNS error, it correctly connects to my WIFI but fails to connect to PSN.

I've left it off today, so when I get home it will have been off for at least 8 hours, hopefully that will be enough time for it to sort its knickers out.:D

Also on VM broadband here, but no issues thankfully so it does sound like a tangled knickers issue :D

Have you tried reseting your router and then either do a connection test on your PS3 or go through the motions of setting up the connection again if your are using wi-fi (scan for network etc). Ive not had any problems with the network this week, I've only had problems with Warhawk either freezing up or having no sound over the last couple of days. When I've not been able to sign into the network in the past reseting the router usually fixes it for me but sometimes manually going through your connection settings and saving it at the end has helped where the router reset hasn't. I sometimes get this after an update (firmware or game).

Been having all sort of problems for a few weeks now. Either I can't get connected or I constantly get disconnected. I browse the interweb and download updates without any problems, just don't seem to be able to get a stable connection to the PSN. Tried the various suggestions on these forums and none of them have worked for me.

My tin pot theory is that the Sony servers can't cope with the load anymore. Late at night, or early in the morning, or during the day when everyone's at work/school it's fine, but during the evenings and at the weekend it's a nightmare.

I guess we get what we pay for. :(

What's the signal strength of your wireless link? Has it dropped recently?
If so, move the aerial and reboot the router. Also try plugging the PS3 straight into the router to see if that works, that should tell you if it's a wireless problem or not.

I have other WIFI devices running off it without a problem. I will try rebooting the WIFI router tonight if the full lengthy power off of the PS3 hasn't worked.

Reboot of the WIFI router worked. Very odd indeed as I had no probs using it for other stuff or connecting to it from the PS3.

Oh well, computers! Bah!;)

Thanks for the help guys.
