PS3 keep disconnecting..

[ Edited ]
18 Replies 42,634 Views edited 22-01-2011

Hey!

Last couple of days, my ps3 keeps disconnecting from net. I have been having same settings and everything for 6 months and it has been working just fine without any problems.. Now when I go online, I stay in game for like 2 minutes then it disconnects and I have no clue why, since I havent change anything... any idea what could cause this? p.s. my router is just next to my ps3 and nothing blocking its signal.

and its wireless..

Try connecting your ps3 to the router via an Ethernet cable.

Then go to Network settings>Internet connection setings and follow the steps.:)

best using wired.

 

to many things can interfere with it when wireless

 

If your router  is next to your PS3 use it wired it will be better all around.

 

Other than that you may have to go into your router settings and try changing the wireless channel

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

NEVER KEEP ANY OF YOUR DEVICES WITH SAME IP ADDRESS...change the last number of ip to avoid conflicting them...do this my going in custom setting of your ps3....example....192.168.1.55/56/57 just change the last digit from 0 to 255....one more thing...if u r interested in wireless setup...do it manually...

 

1) go to ps3 network setting--custom and set the desired ip address like 192.168.1.21 

2) subnet mask to 255.255.255.0

3) gate way to THE IP ADDRESS OF YOUR ROUTER/MODEM most probably 192.168.1.1

4)priminary and secondary dns value u can find from your router by enterning 192.168.1.1 in ur pc browser and username and password "admin" and "admin"....in overview status...u will find primary and secondary dns....use them

 

going to next step...it will ask u to set MTU value...u need to calculate it...GOOGLE IT

 

now if ur ps3 is connected directly to router/modem and not via any other rouer medium DO NOT USE PROXY......finally enable UPnP as all the modem/router of today support this feature...

 

THIS SHOULD GIVE YOU BETTER CONNECTIVITY

Why?

Your router must have lots of ports for Ethernet cables and they are pretty cheap.

I had a similar problems with WIFI. I got a new PS3 slim for Xmas to replace my phat. The new slim model didn't connect, various error codes appearing, DNS errors, slow connections, disconnecting continously. The old PS3 worked perfectly in the spot, and was still working perfectly in another area in the house. I tried everything (DMZ, port forwarding, etc) and I was pulling my hair out!!!

 

In the end, after weeks of problems, I found out that a few wires (wrapped together) about an inch above the PS3 was causing the problem. Those wires didn't effect the phat WIFI signal but were effecting the slim WIFI signal. I just could not believe it. I relocated those wires and my PS3 has been working brilliantly for last 2 weeks.

 

Have you moved your PS3, or changed anything around it (new TV, digital TV box, etc) that could effect the WIFI signal?

Even your central heating or street lighting can affect your connection. I had a problem with my internet last year and was asked about the heating or lights. Didn't believe them at first but apparently it can happen!

 

For the OP if you want to stay wireless you could try those Homeplugs and see if that sorts your problem out.

I have had the same problem, never happened to me before and all of a sudden it just kept signing out but not constantly, like few hours in between, sometimes even a day or two. I have also tried a wired connection but that was worse because more often, the ethernet cable kept ''disconnection'' or ''unplugged'' which clearly it wasnt, I even checked the points and ports, nothing wrong.

My SEN account is fine my connection is fine I'm connected via an Ethernet cable I've tried everything possible trust me and it simply does not work. This morning it works and now it's out for days at a time so rather than a cry for help I'm just sending a complaint because there are no issues. The main reason I'm so angry is because every other thing I use to game works fine wirelessly on the same connection for instance my iPhone 4S how ironic is that eh?! This issue needs to be fixed immediately because things like this aren't cheap if someone thinks the know how to help just post it i need feedback.

The problem will be your end have you looked at opening ports or setting up a DMZ if you run a PS3 connecting test what are the results?

I very rarely have problems myself and since recently moving ISP to BT not one single PSN disconnection, if trying either of the above doesn't help you may need to take a look at your ISP and router/modem, some routers whatever you try are just useless they either want bypassing or replacing.

So, here's my problem.

 

I reset default settings on my PS3 about an hour ago, all goes well. Set my display/audio settings as I had them previous, all went well. Signed in to PSN... oh wait! I didn't as I have a DNS error? How so? I just connected to Netflix no problem! I also connected to it on my phone!

 

Now before anyone says it's my router, it's not, I set it and my PS3 up again exactly the way it was before. DNS settings are the same ones I used before, PS3 is back in the same DMZ as it was before I reset it.

 

Just find it laughable, and when I say laughable I mean "oh hell I need to pick up my ribs as they just fell out 'cause i was laughing so hard" laughable, that I can connect to whichever app I want on my PS3 yet try to sign in to PSN and I have a DNS error.
