    PS3 connected to a router by ethernet cable. Can sign it at times...will stay connected for a little while, then signs out...sometimes refuses to sign in at all...doesn't matter if connected directly to modem or through router...resetting modem and router do not help...other devices connecting through the router work fine.

I believe this is an issue related to heavy loads on the system right now on Sony's end. My PS3 started having these issues after Christmas, mostly when trying to play LittleBIGPlanet. I'm assuming it's just a matter of there being too many people online at once, and Sony's online service is shaking a bit under the pressure.

When i click sign up for playstation network on my psp, my internet works but then it said,"a connection error has occured" 80551021. please help me solve this problem, Thank you

Hello there
The Error 80551021 is an error with the PSN and NOT your console. There is nothing you can do but wait for Sony to sort out whatever issues they are dealing with. Sorry to say.
I hope this helps! If it does, Thumbs Up please!

My ps3 won't let me sign in to the network. The Internet browser works but when I try to sign in it gives me an error code 80710A06. Can you help please?

Hi there, unfortunately there is nothing you can do at the moment. The playstation network is down worldwide. We just have to wait till sony fixes this!5794265/is-the-entire-playstation-network-down or!5794440/sony-playstation-outage-likely-to-last-days or or
The reason your browser will still work is because it doesn't require the playstation network to run, it only requires your internet connection to be working. The signing in requires a connection between your connection and sony's servers.

My ps3 doesnt let me play online call of duty

Do you have a PSN account? If no, create one, sign in, then try again.
If you already have a PSN account and you're signed in, can you access the PSN store? If not, verify that your PS3 is connected to the internet.

If everything above failed, it would be easier for us if you gave us the error message you're getting when trying to play online.

Lately from yesterday when i sign in it shows me message an error has accured u have been signed out of psn (80710092) why?? and i should do? thx

This means you've been signed out of the playstation network. A problem with your broadband, not your PS3. Check the connection of the ethernet cable from your router to the ps3. Then switch off at the mains both your ps3 and your router. Leave for 30 seconds then turn both back on. Wait till the blue lights on your router are all steady blue not flashing red or orange. Then turn on your PS3, go to network settings, then internet connection test. This will check your internet connection, and whether or not you're signed in to PSN, and also your internet download/upload speed.
Hope this helps.

Cant connect to psn. But i can to internet. :(

One reason this may be happening is having the media sharing option on. Some routers can't handle all the requests the ps3 sends while having this option on. You're using a wireless connection right?

On signing in to psn i get the error 80711008

Go to your Internet Connection Settings, then Disable the Media Server thing and it should work, hopefully. I did it and I think it's working now, because I'm downloading the new 2.76 Update.
