Check it out. If you r constantly getting connection interruptions during game-play then here is what u need to do. If u r using a router (no matter the brand), the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation then move it close to the ps3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS to your modem press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually, if you do this chances are you will mess something up). If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go. There is a good chance you may never get a connection interruption again. For the time being you will be able to enjoy playing call of duty like you once did. Now u might ask what am I supposed to do with my router? I need it for my laptop, xbox, etc? Just buy a new one. Chances are the one that you have is garbage. It might have worked great at once, but hey, these things happen. I suggest doing your research and find a router that works well with gaming. I hope this works. In summary, it is not your playstation or your internet service provider that is giving you problems... It is your router... connect your PS to your router to test this theory...
Boys and girls I have the solution!!!! After about 6 months of this same problem and searching in countless forums I have now found the answer. I too thought it was a router or ISP provider problem but no......it is a simple setting on the PS3.
simply go to media server settings in your PS3 and disable the streaming media servers. I tried this and it worked immediately. no restarting or anything.
What you all need to understand is that there is no magic answer to fix these problems. In many cases a new router is NOT the answer. Most people just do not know jack shit about networking and wireless. Which is fine, however the real problem is that these console game manufacturers can't program their games online play easy enough for networking noobs. So any smuck can go hook up a wireless router and get wireless. But configuring DMZ, firewalls, understand what a port and IP is that is not stuff that typical console gamers have a clue about. Quit blaming the router manufacturers because they do a much better job.
The best help you can receive is this:
- Open necessary ports for PS3
- Open any ports used specifically by the game (which is retarded they don't use standard PS3 ports)
- If your router supports UPnP enable it (caution this is a security risk UPnP is a horrible idea)
- Make sure your wireless connection is strong
Now you might say I am being too general, "I need it step by step". Well I'm sorry to tell you, that you must figure out yourself. Reason is that everyone has a different router many from different manufacturers that have a different configuration interface.
Bottom line is if you are not able to just plug and play your PS3 games online, you either need to find a friend that can fix your problems, pay someone to do it, or learn how to do it yourself.
Perhaps not the answer you were all looking for but at least it will stop you from running around like chickens with your heads cut off.
So I've been reading over the answers, but I can't seem to find the right answer.
I have a Wii and a PS3, neither of which will connect to live, at least.
I guess that's the best way to describe it.
On the PS3 the internet works PERFECTLY, but it WILL NOT let me sign in to let me play online.
I just got my PS3, and the Wii I have had for a year or two, so it's not a new thing.
I'm also not able to use things like Limewire, is there something in my internet connection that is making it so I cannot connect to anything?
I've got wireless internet, but we're using Belkin...
all u have to do is disable the media search thing its under internet connections then go all the way down and disable it then u will be able to get ur game updates if u have any questions contact me on my ps3 my name is SCARFACE535
When I test my internet connection it say's my UPnP is not available and my NAT is type 3. My connection was good a few days ago. How do I fix it? I have my ethernet cable hooked up to my router or modem
Hey I need help my dad says the connection is fine, but when I go on my xbox360 the online gaming works but it's slow. So then I go on my ps3 and the connection tothe web works on it but the online doesn't work it says at the top right that I cant connect to the playstation network cn you please help.
The bottom line is your router. I had to upgrade to a broadband, which I now have no interruptions. I had too many devices running off my old router. Without the broadband, your router will only stream 2.4gh. Cell phones and cordless phones are just 2 devices that use that same frequency. I spent many hours trying to find a solution. I called Sony and Linksys for help and we even opened the ports. Nothing worked until I ungraded my router. I spent about $130, but it was worth it. Good luck!
hi I played call of duty alot once I always had good connection unless my cpu was on but most of the time it wasnt well then out of nowhere myconnectionwent bad on every game its been going on for a month the weird thig is that at midnight the connection is perfect but at day and night its 1 bar idk whats goingon I triyed connecting directly with the moderm but the same thinggoes on the moderm and router work fine we triyed contacting the isp but they dont know whats going on they say something might be interrupting the connection or something but I doubt it is it something I did on my cpu? please reply back please I play ps3 I triyed every setting it has wired wireless upn enable and stuff nothing happens what should I do im really pissed and sad they say the moderm is fine and I have 1.5 Mg so wtf is going on
if on wire (ethernet) go to settings on ps3 go all the way down to network settings then press on network settings it'll tell you your going to be signed out of PSN press x then do wired connection and automatic to all don't use proxy don't set dchp host name and do all settings automatic reboot/restart whatever you call it
modem and ps3 try getting online to play your game
if on wireless do same settings as above but instead of selecting wired select wireless automatic all
if that doesn't work go into your router
d-link brand router 192.168.0.1
linksys brand router 192.168.1.1
belkin brand router 192.168.2.1
enter that ip in your webbrowser
then look for a setting that says DMZ
enter your last digit or digits of ip click on check box to enable and click apply
depends on which router your using if
d-link brand router 192.168.0.1 your ip should be between 2-100
linksys brand router 192.168.1.1
belkin brand router 192.168.2.1
To find out your ip go to settings on ps3 all the way down to network settigs and select network settings list and it will tell you your ip
if this is the step you need to make your ps3 work you will need to make your ip static
static means your ip never changes for as long as you have these settings on
to do this u'll need to go to network settings and select
either wire or wireless then custom
and follow on-screen instructions
for ip select manuel
only enter ip, primary dns, and router
rest like proxy, dhcp host name, select do not use and do not set for those 2
rest auto only ip dns amd router address needs changing and disable UPNP you don't need that if your going to use static DMZ ip address
ip will be 192.168.x = 0 or 1 or 2 depending on your router . xx = your custom DMZ last digits for example 12
so it would be 192.168.2.12 or 192.168.1.12 or 192.168.0.12
here's why your response makes you sound like an idiot......I use the exact same router on my Xbox 360 and I can connect to 99% of the people....yet with the same game but on PS3 I can barely connect to 10% of em.....explain that please
