Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
So I have had my Playstation3 for over a year now, and I am a frequent user of online gamming. Specifically Madden 09,COD4/5. I have always had great signal. I have NEVER had an issue before, I literally just played 2 nights ago and everything was fine, now all of a sudden something is wrong. When I check under the network settings my signal is 98%, I can browse on the internet, but once a game is put in , and I go to play it online , ( Call of Duty 4 ) it freezes up and never connects me. Also with Madden 09 I can connect, but just minutes into the game, the "connection is lost" , and it had to have been mine since I tried to play 5 consecutive games, and the same thing happened everytime. I checked the cables to make sure everythink was secure, I refreshed my system, disk cleaner, I have tried everything, and my original thought was it was something minor is now that it is getting to be a more serious issue. Any help you can give me would be GREATLY appreciated thanks !
UPDATE: I got a flashdrive and saved my game data to it. I did the quick system refresh, and re-loaded the call of duty 4 game in, and same issue. It is not the game because I borrowed my friends same COD4 game , and it did the same thing where it was connecting to host and never connected, but prior to that I played a game of madden online, and that works ???? Makes no sence to me... Right now as we speak I am doing the full 5 hour refresh, so we will se what the deal is there .... how can this be possible , it is making me crazy .... I have been playing for a year, and now all of a sudden it's bugging out. The system runs great, but this small issue is bothering me. How could this one game not work all of a sudden. Settings have all been re set so it is not that , could it be the COD servers ? Could I have a little virus ? What could be the issue ?
You might need to get another router. Your NAT might not be Open. Its probably Moderate. Which means most of the time you cannot connect to a game or host. Get my point? Well i got a new router and that fixed it :)
