Problems signing in to network
  • i have 95% signal strength and am unable to connect and play online. I was able to play madden before when i first got the ps3 no problem and no for some reason its not working. We purchased a new router and dont know if that has something to do with it and i've also read about the port forwarding option and dont really understand it. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
  • The PlayStation Network needs certain ports to be open to let the traffic back and forth through- with the router change you lost the settings that were in place on the old router.

    Check out the "getting Your PS3 Online" thread in the PlayStation 3 Hardware and Accessory section. We list the ports needed in there as well as link to a site that guides to where to add them for just about every router in existence.
