Hello,

If you are connecting via Wifi instead of a cable this can happen. Wifi connections tend to drop connection or lose intensity.
I would recommend to you to connect it via ethernet cable directly to the router. This is the best way to ensure best communication between your PS3 and the router.

If you cant do that go into the Wifi Router configuration and try to check the configuration.
If you need assistance tell me the make and model of the router and I might be able to help you a bit further.

Hope it helped.

Will not stay connected to internet


This would depend on how you are connecting. If by a wireless router, check the signal strength, walls (especially thick or damp), objects with moisture like human bodies all drop signal strength because microwaves are absorbed by water. If the signal strength is good, check the routers logs by accessing the router's administration web page which usually has a statistics or log of past faults. If it is not the router or others using the router are not having the same issue. Then I'd require more information about how you are accessing the internet.
There may be software packages trying to access the Internet that are being blocked, which would block your connection.
The variables here are quite numerous.

Cant sign in to psn


Disconnect from your internet source, then reconnect. If it doesn't resolve itself, Sony is doing something to the PlayStation Network in your area and it will be down until they finish their changes.

I recently had to reformat my hdd on my ps3 and now i can't play bfbc2. I manage to download the software update version 1.05 but it doesn't install it stops at about 13% with error code 80010038....


Yes, that's exactly the problem. It sounds like you attempted to download this when the PSN Network first went down or that 13% is actually BS and it's not downloading a thing. The PSN network is completely down and may be until the end of the month due to being hacked. That code is the error code you get (and I get) every time I tunr the ting on and it tried to auto log on.

Hi kdfrance

Please everyone that comes across my info take a few seconds of your time to rate my solution which you can select at the bottom of my answer Was this solution helpful? YES or NO :)... As i have taken time to answer your question the best i can Thank You......


Try turning off media server on ps3 Go into the PS3?s Settings menu and navigate to Network Settings - Media Server Connection disable it thats my first idea which could be causing the issue..Secondly unplug your modem/router for 15 sec then plug back in...THEN FOLLOW STEPS

  1. Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, and then press the "X" button.
  2. Select "Internet Connection Settings", and then press the "X" button. When a message stating that the Internet connection will be terminated is displayed, select "Yes", and then press the "X" button.
  3. Select "Wired Connection" or "Wireless Connection", and then press the "X" button.
  4. Select "Easy" or "Custom" and adjust settings as necessary. Follow the on-screen instructions to adjust the required settings.
Note: You should always choose Easy before going onto to adjusting the Custom settings. In most cases, the Easy settings will work and are set automatically so you won't have to search for information that could have been gathered automatically.

Hope this info was helpful cheers nikki

How to configure Remote access/VPN server role (using windows as my operating system)?


You can configure a server that allows remote users to access resources on your private network over dial-up or virtual private network (VPN) connections. This type of server is called a remote access/VPN server. Remote access/VPN servers can also provide network address translation (NAT). With NAT, the computers on your private network can share a single connection to the Internet. You can find a step by step guide here:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736357(WS.10).aspx

100% internet connection but PSN won't let me login


That is very common, I too get that DNS error while attempting to log in. Im pretty sure it is just the playstation servers. For me it usually takes like 20-30 minutes until they get it running again or if your anxious to play just keep trying, sometimes it might only take 5 or 10 min. Hope this was helpfull.
