Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Cannot establish connection to network

22 Replies 2,472 Views Created 17-02-2012

Hi I'm hoping someone can finally give me some help on this.

 

My son got a PS3 for his birthday and the only game he has is GT5.

 

I've been doing all the setting up for him including registering for the Playstation network to which he can go online using the ps3 to create his own avatar and we have also downloaded the bbc I player to prove the PS3 is working.

 

But I cannot connect to the server when I put the GT5 disc in the machine.

 

It says I'm signed in and then it says it cannot connect to the server.

 

I am on virgin media for my broadband and I have a netgear wgt624v3 router.

 

I've tried going through the connection settings both automatically and also manually but no matter what I do I can't get it to connect to the server.

 

I have so far phoned virgin and got their primary and secondary ip addressess and entereded them one at a time or trying with both of them at the same time.


I have changed had the router at 1500 mtu and also at 1492 along with the same settings on the ps3.


I have tried removing the router from the mix and hard wiring the modem to the PS3 to no gain.

 

All the time I am checking the connections and they are coming up fine.

 

Any help so I can enjoy the online features would be appreciated.

Re: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Cannot establish connection to network

I'd suggest putting the PS3 in the DMZ if you haven't already:

 

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Network-General/How-to-put-your-PS3-into-a-DMZ/td...

 

This should help eliminate any connection issues.

 

Might be worth pointing out that occasionally (not very often really), Polyphony Digital's servers experience high traffic that causes a real slow down and makes difficult for players to access them. Usually if you sign out of PSN then start Gran Turismo 5 up it should then work normally (although you won't be able to play online unless you can sign back into PSN).

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip. I hadn't tried doing the DMZ but even when I did I came up against the error 80710102 code.

I'm getting really frustrated now.

Re: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Cannot establish connection to network

Ok, well a few things that need to be checked:

 

Signal strength. Just ensure that the console is receiving the best possible signal.

 

Incorrect information has been input in the connection setup. If you don't mind, you could post up your connection details here, and we might be able to highlight anything thats wrong.

Thanks but what info is it you need and if it's from the ps3 how do I copy and paste the details?

The ps3 is connected via Ethernet cable to the netgear wgt624v3 router and my Internet is through virgin media cable.

Re: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Cannot establish connection to network

on the ps3, use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as the DNS servers - may help.

I'm using a very similar setup (Virgin modem plus netgear router) with no issues - which I appreciate doesn't directly help you, but does show that it ought to work.

And we weren't even testing for that.. :Thumbs:

Any chance you can jot down what you did so I can follow it to the letter please.

I've followed a couple of things off the web and nothing has worked so far.

Put it as if my son is doing it lol

Re: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Cannot establish connection to network

to be honest, it just worked for me, sorry!

but I've used those DNS entries for ages (they are Google's), and never had any problems connecting to any servers, whichever ISP I've been using at the time - my main PS3 in my modem's DMZ, but other aren't.

On the PS3, go for manual setup, hit X through most pages until you get to DNS, and then change to those numbers :smileyhappy:

Re: Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Cannot establish connection to network

So this is what I'm trying to be able to get online.

 

Into Internet connection settings and clicked ok.

custom setting

wired connection

auto detect network device 

automatic ip address system

DHCP Do Not Set

DNS - Manual and enters Primary 8.8.8.8

                                               Secondary 8.8.4.4

MTU Automatic

Proxy server Do Not Use

UPnP Enable

And then click X to save and when testing comes back as 

 

Obtain IP - Succeeded

Internet Connection Succeeded

Playstation Networ Succeeded

UPnp Available

Nat Type Type 2

Connection speed (download) 2.4Mbps

Connection speed (upload) 770.5kbps

 

Then when go onto GT5

 

Loads logitech screen

Sony entertainment screen

Polyphony screen

Then confirmation window opens saying - A connection to the server could not be established.

Click ok 

And then try to go online or go to the news and it just says connection to the server could not be established.
