PS4 Disconnecting from WiFi

I seem to be having an issue with my PS4, as it keeps kind of disconnecting from my WiFi. I say 'kind of' because it doesn't entirely disconnect. Here's what's been happening:

 

- I power up my PS4, go on Rocket League and start playing online just fine.

- After a while I'll try to join a new online match and it says that the servers aren't online.

- I press the Home button and check to see if I'm actually online by going onto my friends list, which fails to load. I then go on Settings, Network, Test Internet Connection, and it is successful. I then go back to the friends list and it is back to normal.

- I then press Home again and go back on Rocket League - it now doesn't say that the servers aren't online, but it does say that 0 people are playing the game online and it therefore does not let me join any online games. I then have to restart the game entirely in order to get it working again.

 

I really don't get it, as it doesn't seem to be disconnecting entirely, but enough so that I can't play online and my friends list doesn't load. As soon as I test the internet connection, it's successful and I can see the friends list again, but I still have to restart the game in order to play online. I've been having similar issues with other games, where whilst the game loads up, it says 'Network features are unavailable for this game as we are unable to connect' or something to that effect. Very confused. Can anyone help?

 

Thanks a lot.

The same thing happens to me, I’m mid game in fortnite and out of no where I can’t move anymore, I click out the game and I’m disconnected from the damn internet.. it happens like 6 times per game if I even get lucky enough to get deep enough into the match without freezing up mid fight and dying.

Simply put, it's your PlayStation, PlayStation have really bad Wi-Fi capabilities compared to PC and Xbox, use Ethernet.

 

I got a brand new PS4 slim Red Dead 2 bundle in November, I work away from home and the place I live in only has Wi-Fi I can't connect with Ethernet, I've been unable to play Red Dead online because the PS4 disconnects from the Wi-Fi every 2-3 minutes yet the PC connects fine.

Guys, can you try something. I have this issue as well. Then, I was downloading the Res6 demo and went into the game and all of a sudden, had no issues, my ping went down (BF5 leaderboard) and i played hassle free. As soon as I stopped the download, bang, issues again.

Can anyone else test this out?

Same issue, ugh. If anyone has a solution please tell me. It's been doing this ever since I connected to my WiFi instead of through an extender. I factory-reset the ps4 and ever since it's been doing this from 1 to 3 times a day.

If you cannot easily connect via ethernet cable look at powerline network adapters for a more reliable alternative solution compared to WiFi.

I tried something like this and it caused my ping to skyrocket. It was the reason why I factory-reset my system. Before I used one, my wifi caused massive lag, which was why I used one for a while. Now I don't lag, it just disconnects.

Disconnections could be down to your router's firewall opening ports or setting up a DMZ usually fixes that.
