i've had a ps3 for 7 months now and never had anytrouble except my blu-ray drive laser went a few weeks back, it's been fixed now and my dad has just bought a new ps3 slim 250gb console on the idea of us 2 playing cod4 together. since my dad has bought his ps i've had nothing but trouble with psn. i cant connect to my friends or play online. im not recieving messages from my friends and they cant recieve mine. there is nothing wrong with my internet connection the ps3 + my laptops and pc's all can connect to this network no problem. when i do a test psn is random if it succeed's or not but when my dads ps3 is turned of it connects fine. so it has to be something wrong with the psn that says 2 ps3's in the same household cant both be on at the same time!
i tried adding my dads account to my freinds i got the error code 8002a669. which everyone is denying is an error code and other players dont know what it means.
what is the problem because im seriously losing intrest in ps3's because 2 ps3's close to each other cant connect. and im considering buying an xbox 360 because i know that 2 xbox's can connect with no issues and xbox live doesnt have as many issues or needs as much mainternance as psn does!

So is there actually no way to fix this?
i live with my friend and my ps3 is literally across the hall using wireless and his 1 is connected directly.
i can connect to my other friends that i dont live with fine, but me and him cant play together, it kicks one of us out of the match on black ops.
if we're both online his Nat type is Moderate and mine is moderate or strict. which makes no sense, his should be open and mine moderate.
im not technologically retarded or anythin, so if anyone can think of any way at all to fix this i'd really appreciate it.

This is unusual. There is nothing about the design of the PlayStation 3 that would prevent 2 consoles connecting through 1 router.
It could be a limitation of the router. A few suggestions would be changing the channel of the wireless signal.
You can also try a wired connection on both consoles to help fund the cause of the problem.
Also ensure that all the ports are open, a guide on which can be found here
