I think you need to open some ports on your router. If you do have a router you might as well change the MTU size to improve your bandwidth.

If you are directly connected to a modem then contact your ISP and verify if some ports are being bock for your game.

Hi! recently joined playstation network. completed sign in etc. can browse online too. but when i wish to play online it gets stuck 'connecting to matchmaking server' etc


Hi,

can you go to network settings in your ps3 then test internet connection. If it says UPNP unavailable then you need to enable it in your router or upgrade router firmware if router shows UPNP as enabled.

Thanks.

Just bought cod 4. Dont know how to connect to server to play on line.


Hi,
Firstly, ensure the console is connected to the Network via an Ethernet cable or WiFi. You will then have to access the Playstation Network via the main menu and create a new profile, i.e. User Name, email address.

Once all complete, you can then tick the small box to `Automatically Log On Each Time You Connect To The Network`. This will save you having to type in your User Name etc each time you play online.

Good Luck!
