There is lots of hacker software out there that stresses the servers, I know I have played many games.
I would suggest getting the best added software to help to keep this from happenning.
Also check your network, if its slower than normal at times, like 5PM-9PM every one is on playing games at the same time!
I had the same problem playing Combat Arms online untill I got game booster than no more freezes unless I am in a room with many, many hackers.
What game are you trying to play? Even though the time goes up its been my experience that the download is still going on, even if the status bar seems like its stuck. A couple of games I play, like Socom confrontation signs you out of the PSN but your connection is still up to download the patch. It will sign you back in as soon as it installs it. I know the MAG beta has been notorious for this also. Are you having this happen on every game you try? Disc based versions? Are the games your trying to play multiplayer? Try unhooking your ps3 from its internet connection.. do you still get that error?
Im really curious to know if you were able to get it going or not, Ill be checking fixya here all day so if you have any more questions please post back. ill reply
I really wish I had a concrete answer for you. It may just be a coincedence that it happens only when you play that game. I have had that problem before myself, but it would happen with different games at different times of the day. As you know most of the popular games like MGS4 and COD4 are made and supported by diffent companies. This also means that the servers are in different locations and have a varied amount of people on each server. MGS4 is a newer game and I also had problems with the online play with that game as many people have.
As for a soultion. Some games require a stronger signal strength then others due to the amount of MB being transfered. I would try to use a shorter Ethernet cable if using a wired connection, or moving closer to your WiFi router if using WiFi, and completely resetting the network configuration. I know thats a pian, but if it works, it will be worth it! I really hope this helps you!! Good luck.
