Sounds like you have a network problem there. I'm guessing that you are using some kind of router to connect to the internet... within the router, is UPnP enabled? This could fix your problem. If it is, then maybe you need to port forward your PS3 to get the most out of online experience. Goto in order to get detailed instructions on how to port forward your router. One thing that I can tell you is to pay attention to your primary DNS that your ISP provides you and make that your secondary DNS while putting your router as the primary DNS. Making a IP is a little different with each router, that's why I pointed you to for more detailed instructions. (although the DNS was never really covered in it, that's why I said it here...) I had to do this with my xbox360 in order to get my full connection as the auto connection was making it really slow...

SOURCE: cant get online when i run a test it fails on

If you are using a router, the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS3 from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation 3 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 PS3 to your modem, press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS3 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 are getting a connection then you are ready to go.

Thank you!

SOURCE: My new PS3 Call of Duty black Ops game is freezing

I've read that deleting the files for the game and/or signing out of PSN helps (I haven't tried either, but I can't get past the title screen and cutscenes without my PS3 freezing)

HI! I have a PS3 and I am unable to play Black Ops online.. I ahve ran connection test and the ip adress is successful, the internet connection is succesful than it says the playstation network failed

Hi lonijoygardi,

Sadly there's a known issue with the PS3 version of Black Ops that sometimes it won't connect to the activision servers. Sadly this is not an issue on the user-end of things so there's nothing you can do besides contacting Activision and letting them know about your issue. It is unknown if Activision or TryArch are working on a fix.

(more details on this story here:

Some people have reported moderate sucess by changing their DNS settings on the PS3 to:

Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:

But it hasn't been proved to work 100%

Sorry i couldn't be of further assistance and i hope this helped you with your issue.

My internet connection is good, but i have trouble signing in and when I am able to sign in, I get kicked off. I'm fully updated. One notice says Black ops server is not available at this time, or I get...

While the issue could lie with the servers that host the Black Ops gaming network, there is a small possibility that your home router may be blocking some of the network traffic you need in order to connect properly. I would recommend putting your PS3 into a "DMZ" on your home router. This will allow all internet traffic to get to the PS3. If you do not know how to do that, you can refer to the user manual for your router/modem (or google it)

If you can play black ops, then I wouldn't worry about it. If you need to download something to play the game then the system should have you do it through the system update.

I cannot play call of duty black ops online. However, I can play any other game online. I have tried troubleshooting. I reset my router, had a friend bring his copy of the game over that he plays online...

Nat Type has to be 2 any other Nat Type will have conflicts with online play no matter what other black ops you try. Do a connection test from your PS3 and make sure the Nat Type is 2, if its not do a full reset on your mode/router if that doesn't work then you will have to get into your modems configurations via PC and set your PS3 as a DMZ host. I can help with that if you need the help. Good Luck!

If it says ea servers not available that means the servers are down for maintenance, this is not unusual for video game servers, happens once or twice a month....

Also keep in mind playstation servers and xbox server are totally different.
