Fixing Your PS3 Network Connection [Solved/Closed]

Rhino - Latest answer on Nov 29, 2012 08:40AM
Hello,
Check it out. If you r constantly getting connection interruptions during game-play then here is what u need to do. If u r using a router (no matter the brand), the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation then move it close to the ps3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS to your modem press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually, if you do this chances are you will mess something up). If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go. There is a good chance you may never get a connection interruption again. For the time being you will be able to enjoy playing call of duty like you once did. Now u might ask what am i supposed to do with my router? I need it for my laptop, xbox, etc? Just buy a new one. Chances are the one that you have is garbage. It might have worked great at once, but hey, these things happen. I suggest doing your research and find a router that works well with gaming. I hope this works. In summary, it is not your playstation or your internet service provider that is giving you problems... It is your router... connect your PS to your router to test this theory...

My NAT says type 2 what exactly does this mean. I tried playing Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe online and it won't let me. what do I have to do?

Even with a router properly configured, you can still have problems. My nat type is level 2 and i still cannot get good connections. Ps3 wireless is junk, you need to go wired. The problem with that is i have never gotten it to work wired, even though it works wireless. ps3 networking is sub par, not peoples routers

Spent days trying to make my problem go away.

Had the same problem, everytime I would hook up to the PSN. It would run great for a couple minutes, and then bang no more network connection. Tried for hours to make it work without any luck................. Till I tried updating the firmware on my router (SMC).........................No more problems. By the way BACKUP your router setting before you update the firmware.

Hope this solution work for you.

hey just wanted to let you guys know I solved mine and my buddys issue with easy solution! clear your main web browser on your home pc, punch in 192.168.o.1, should be at your motems menu lobby, then go to advanced settings, turn your wpnp on, save, then back out to lobby, enter the firewall settings, turn the firewall off, save!!!! thats it, thats all I had to do and now my connection is fantastic, never drops a game and matchmaker never fails!

When it says you game is not available and it will not let you connect leave the online lobby and go back to the main menu and try again and if it still doesn't work call up your friend and tell him to do the same, in most cases this should work.

well sorry but this answer seems kind of stupid because the reason i got a router in the first place is because theres no way i could get my ps3 close enough to the modem to connect with an ethernet cable manually

I always get booted out of games and get connection interrupted so a buddy said check my connction type, well unfortunatly its type 3. From what I read i think this means that i have a wireless connection but my Ps3 is hard wired with an ethernet cable to the socket in my wall. when trying to fix this i keep reading ways to fix ports on my router but im not using a router. how can I change the type 3 connection to something else without the use of a router????

thanks in advance

I did everything but it doesnt work. Is it because my ps3 is down stairs in the living room and my modem is upstairs?

Hi guys, I've been searching everywhere on the net trying to find a solution for this problem. Everytime i started my PS3, it tried to connect to the Playstation Network, however, this always ended in an error (timeout). When i connected to PSN manually, it worked. Unfortunately, when I was not using the connection, most of the times it was disconnected again... But now, I think I have solved it!!! My PS3 has always been connected through LAN in a home network with a NAS, on which a media server is installed. I always thought that I should enable the 'UPNP'-setting on my PS3 (in network-settings), and i also enabled it on my router (Linksys WRT54G).

I thought I'd give it a try to DISABLE these settings both on my PS3 and on the router, and now the problem is solved!! I hope this solution helps many other people, since it has troubled me for months and months! This does not mean that de media server connection is disabled, you should still be able to use the media server connection.

Good luck, cheers!
