Question about Sony Playstation 3 40GB System Console

1 Answer

Hi, I have a problem. Obviously. I am ready to kill someone. I am THAT frustrated. I can connect to the internet, but I cannot connect to the playstation network. However, the Internet is rather slow, even though the internet connection test succeeds rather quickly. I have tried port forwarding. And I forwarded the ports to my ps3 ip address? The thing that really gets me mad is the fact that I bought my ps3 in July 2008 and it worked fine then, but around the time SF IV came out, it stopped working. I couldn't connect to the PSN. What could have happened? Why should I have to do port forwarding now when I didn't need it then? I have the most up to date version of the ps3. I need to talk with someone who knows about the ps3 and networking. I am sick and tired of calling comcast, then netgear, then Sony. Is there no one with a broad knowledge of everything? I need more than a Sony guy reading off what to do next. I need someone more thorough and much smarter. Does Sony have people who are a step up from who you are initially stuck with? I hope you can help.

If you are behind a router then the nat setting needs to be enabled.

I moved apartment and now expat shield is unable to connect, any suggestions?

Sounds weird. Is your internet line working ok otherwise? The fact you moved apartment shouldn't make any difference to Expat Shield. Two possibilites - their server is/was down, which is not unlikely. Secondly, did you kill the page it jumps to when it connects? Let that load properly first then kill after. I usually have my TV page up ready to go, connect Expat, let it open what it wants then kill it and refresh tv page.
They may even have updated something and you might need to install a newer version to connect. It has happened before.
Most likely server trouble, which then sometimes leads to necessity for new install. Probably purely just a coincidence with your change of apartment :-)

Internet problem with the Lenovo Y450

I have had this problem on the Lenovo, before. Go to Network Connections, then Advanced, then Advanced Settings ...
Next, use the Adapters and Bindings tab. Look in the Connections window (the first window). Select "Local Area Connection". Push up arrow until this is placed at the top of the list! This makes the network pay attention to the Local Area Connection, first.

Then use the right click on the Network Icon (in Network Connections) to Repair the connection.

If you have a wireless connection, you may temporarily change this to Disabled.

Lenovo also has an "Access Connections" utility, called ACMainGUI.exe. This will do some network diagnostics for you.

It is important to use the correct Network Interface on the Lenovo. Otherwise, the Lenovo will think that you have no Network interface!
