Can't connect to Playstation network via PS3
  • Does logging on to the Playstation network using my PS3 us this same login/password?
  • No, your log in here has nothing to do with the actual PlayStation Network.

    Go to the Friends menu of the PS3 and you should see something called "sign up for the playstation network". Go here to set yourself up for the network. It just takes a few minutes. :)

    I have a problem with the sign as soon as finshed filling up my info it couldn't accept my sign up.
  • Lyme, have you done the firmware update yet in the Network Update under Settings? I believe this needs to be done first to smooth out the kinks.

    If you have done this can you explain a bit more about what sort of message you get as to why it cannot accept?

    I've seen this A LOT posted on other gaming websites this evening. It seems that Sony is updating the Playstation Network, because everyone is having trouble connecting. So, don't worry vendeta, I'm sure it will be working pretty soon. Hope that helps.
  • Mcw is right, vendeta- nothing that can be fixed at your end. Sony's either having more technical hiccups or doing some upgrading. All we can do is wait it out and try again later.
  • Hey God Squad,

    I am connecting my ethernet cable for ps3 to my computer which is linked wirelessly to my modem. I run the connection test and it comesout as follows:

    Obtain IP Address- Failed
    Internet Connection- _

    The attempt to obtain a IP address timed out.

    I am trying to connect to playstation network through this, using the "Sign up for Playstation Network." I already have my profile set up, and now I am wanting to connect to Playstation Network.

    Any ideas

    Thank you for your help in advance

    ethanms :(
  • Ethan, have you set up internet connection sharing on your computer? If not you'll need to do this for that to work. A quick search via Google will find you instructions on doing this for your particular operating system.
  • Thank you for the reply.

    I have tried your sharing internet idea. Checking the box in control panel. But now, i try to connect to the internet with my computer, and the gateway has shutdown. I have tried restarting and everything. Please note: I can not connect to the modem manually through the ps3. the system is downstairs and the server is upstairs.

    Thank you for your help, I'd like to get this working!

    Is there any such thing as a wireless ethernet cable? That might work...

  • Check the forum announcement at the tp of each section, lucas. PSN is down right now and Sony's working on getting things up again.
  • hi i just became a member in this community and i wanted to ask something i cant log in to psn on my psp in this moment im writing to you guys on my psp
  • Welcome aboard, parrandocrack!:cool:

    You aren't able to log into PSN because it is down at the moment. Sony shut it down after a rather serious attempt at hacking into some sensitive areas. We're updating things as Sony puts out more info in the announcement stuck at the top of each section.
  • i recently did the update 3.61 and it seemed like it all went fine
    but when i try sign in i get errors of 8002a203 and i dont know why this is happening can anyone help?
  • The update wasn't to get people back online, it was one final security update to prep for when they do fire the servers up again.

    By this time, according to a map Sony posted on their US blog, all of North America should be back online now.
