Hey McMicka,


Have you tried Powercycling the modem. Powercycle is just unplugging the Modem totally from the Powerpoint at the wall, leaving it for about 20 seconds then plugging it back in.

After doing this & when all the lights come back onto the modem, resetup your PS3 network configuration & see how that goes.

EDIT

In rereading what you said, another thing you can do is login to your modem / router & change the mode type from Optus Bridge Mode to NAPT. this may help as well.  


Just to add to Pretoria's post power cycle the modem ( no Power) for a min of 5 mins gets rid of most error codes and time outs.

While the modem is switched off restart your PS3.

I've done connection tests and keep getting -

Obtain IP Address - SUCCESS

Internet Connection - SUCCESS

Playstation Network - FAILED

 

Yet if I try signing in it lets me, but I can't play online. I don't get signed out with no error codes or anything.  For example I go to play Modern Warfare 2 online, it takes about 45secs-1min to connect to matchmaking, then when I go to join a game it says no games found yet still checks for games but won't connect me. Whats going on??

 

EDIT: I always have 100% connection too

Re: Connection with PlayStation Network timed out?

if your not getting signed out and your friends come up on your list then your on and there's nothing wrong with the psn. any other problems would be from your isp or the game servers

Re: Connection with PlayStation Network timed out?

I have a BILLION 7404VNOX firewall router and my PS3 internet connected but couldn't sign in to the Playstation Network.
Message was: " connection to the playstation network timed out "
Eventually figured out that I needed to :
1) On the PS3 Network Settings, manually configure a unique IP address for my PS3 (e.g. 192.168.1.16 / 255.255.255.0)
The Default Router and DNS can be the same i.e. your Router's IP address (e.g. Billion router = 192.168.1.254)
2) From my PC get into my Router settings (e.g. Billion router = 192.168.1.254)
(a) In Advanced, Configuration, Firewall, Packet Filters set up the ports to exclude them from the firewall for the PS3 (e.g. 192.168.1.16 / 255.255.255.0) one entry for each of these:
TCP: 80, 443, 5223
UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658
(b) In Advanced, Configuration, Virtual Server, Port Forwarding set up ports for the PS3
One entry for each of these:
TCP: 80, 443, 5223
UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658
Voila! all working fine after wasting 6 hours.
To find out how to set up the Port Forwarding and Packet Filters for the PS3's IP address that you set up in your router, Google your Router's manual.

Colleges are a little different but they may have some sort of firewall or anti virus program they are using to stop the connection of your PS3.

Re: Connection with PlayStation Network timed out?

I used to have that problem with mine.  What I ended up doing was setting my playstation to a static IP and then assigning that IP to the DMZ on the my router.  Never had any problems after that.
