Try turning off upnp. Also make sure it is set to a wired connection. Turn off the router for a few minutes with the PS3 off, and then turn on the router, allow it to set up and then try the PS3 set up.

Is this only while playing online? what is your intenet connection like? (ie Speed/set up)

generally if you have a router with several consoles or PCs connected, if one is demanding a lot of bandwidth (ie Gaming or downloading) this can throttle the connection for other PCs or consoles connected. This situation can be made worse if the consoles are both wireless.
A few options are:
1)Check your broadband speed - upgrade if possible
2) Check your router, does it have an option to prioritise one PS over another?
3)Connect the playstations via wired ethernet cables giving better reliability
4)Upgrade your router (or get one if you dont have one) that has a higher connection speed for internal connections. Gigabit connection should be standard though.

hope this helps

Wont let me update


your internet connection might not be up to standards with how fast the connection needs to be so sometimes ps3's will just refuse to update at all. PS if your connection is that bad there's no point going online anyway not with killzone
