PS3 disconnects entire network from internet (restarts router)
  • so ive had my ps3 for 3 years now and have never had a problem, starting last night however anytime I connect my ps3 to the psn it allows me to play a game for a few minutes than somehow restarts my modem/router effectively cutting itself and all computers in the house off of the internet.

    I have done some research and have found some people listing various solutions, nothing has helped here is what I have tried:

    -Put playstion on a static IP
    -Made sure all ports are forwarded as described for psn on
    -Turned off media server
    -Put playstation in DMZ router setting
    -Turned off router firewall
    -Replaced router with a new one (modem/router btw is smc 8014WG)

    nothing has worked! am i missing something? anyone else have any ideas? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You!
