    PSN Error The connection to the server has timed out help?

    Hi! I'm having a problem with my ps3. First i have to say that i'm using 4.46.1 D-rex firmware and i'm banned (i don't know if it matters because it should give me an error and let me use an unban).

    So, when i do internet connection test at the console it says succeeded to obtain ip address and internet connection. The other point i released is that i have another PS3 (with ofw) that is working normally with the same internet connection. So, i think the problem is not from the internet itself, but from the PS3.

    I hope you guys to help me in any way. Sorry for the bad english

    If you are banned on one console and PSN is not connecting properly, yet the non-banned OFW one is, I suppose its the PSN rejecting your console ID.

    Change console ID = It should work fine after.

    Thanks for the support. It didn't work. I used an unbanned console id it still says that the connection to the server has timed out. I searched about this "error" and some guys says that it is a problem from the internet. But my ofw ps3 is working normally so i refuse this point. I don't really know what can i do...

    Would it work if i switch the hdd?

    You should check to make sure your DNS server is set properly on the CFW ps3, try manual setting with Googles DNS Server

    Try to restart your router for 1 hour.

    Sounds more like a router problem. And how your network is setup.

    Have you got both PS3s in DMZ mode or something? IP Conflict? DHCP enabled?

    Hi people! First i have to thank you for the answers. Unfortunately i'm still having the problem

    I used my laptop to create a wireless hotspot from a 3g internet device that i asked my friend to try and it didn't work. So, i'm sure the problem is on the ps3, maybe the cfw or some another setting.

    I tried to restart the router and it didn't work, i put the google dns and it didn't work too.

    #dyceast: Nothing DMZ mode, IP conflict (i don't think so) neither DHCP enabled

    this happens to me a lot when I use yet another by pass , I usually restart the ps3 and relaunch the program on the PC. For your situation I would try to reset your internet settings
