I have been on my PS3 trying for an hour now to get an online ID that the PS3 network will accept. everything is connected fine and I have also "system updated" the PS3 via internet. The wireless router is recognised by PS3 and I have tested the internet connection in the PS3 settings mode.
I fill out all the network signup preamble and it doesn't matter what name I choose for my online ID however norma, obscure or crazy, starting with letter, between 3 -16 characters etc, it tells me it cannot be used and to choose another online ID.
Anyone else going demented or have I missed something obvious here?
