PS3 Game Updates not working

I've got a PS3 and it runs by wifi to a Linksys router. I have no problems connecting to PSN, playing games online or downloading stuff from the PSN store. The problem is whenever I start a game that needs a update downloading and I choose to download it it'll start downloading it then freeze at about 6% then an error message will come up after a while of it being stuck at 6%. However after a few trys It'll say 'Please Wait...' for a longer period of time and then work properly.
Does anyone know a fix?
Please don't tell me to use a ethernet cable because I've tried that.

Thanks

    I've got 2.42

    This issue has nothing to do with the firmware update. It's simply packets not getting through to my PS3's internal IP using NAT. I used UPnP on my router and PS3 and now it works fine.

Do you have the new firmware update 2.41?

    Multiple users over at the official PlayStation forums are reporting that their PS3 consoles are no longer reading discs following the 2.42 update. Some report that games play for several minutes after the update before the drive stops working, while others say the issue kicks in immediately. At least one forum-goer reported that performing a reset on his system fixed the issue, while others have tried with no luck.



    Do a network scan and see if it helps. if it helps. If its a one time thing, PSN might have been updating its server at that time.

When playing ps3 game live i get kicked off the games what is going on


Are you running the live game play through the internal WiFi card or a wired Ethernet cable? If you can try hooking up an Ethernet cable and it solves the problem, you are getting interference from something and you'll have to move the PS3 closer to your router or just try to keep it on the Ethernet cable for online play. That's what I use because it is much more reliable and much faster than WiFi.

If you are running with an Ethernet cable and you are still having problems, the problem may not be with your PS3 but with your router or internet connection. Try moving the cable to another outlet on the router. Check your network settings on the PS3 amd try to set up the network to automatically detect settings.

Depending on the game, you may be kicked off by other users in the game. I've had that happen a couple times because everyone's a critic.

I hope this helps. Good luck and have fun online! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!
