For some users, the PSN seems to have been unavailable since thursday night. Many of these people are on Orange Broadband, though Orange deny that anything is wrong.
"I am too with Orange and my connection has worked flawlessly since I got a PS3 (march), until yesterday. Now all I get is the message "The connection with PLAYSTATION Network timed out" or "An error has occurred. You have been signed out of the PLAYSTATION Network (80710092)".
I am getting NAT type 'Failed' on the PS3 connection test and it can't connect to the PSN. Both computers in my house work fine on the internet. I can still use the browser on the PS3.
None of the network settings on the PS3 or my router have been changed, so the problem is not at my end."
There are a couple of threads about it on the official forums:
"I just wanted to try and get the issue publicised so that it gets sorted as soon as possible."
Can I just state that the problem doesn't seem to be just with Orange anymore. (Although they have admitted that they have trouble with one of their servers).
I just have broadband with them so I can verify that it doesn't work. If you look at the thread, there's people with Tiscali, AOL, etc that all have the same problem.
*The problems only seems to be in Europe though, so this may not apply to the US.*
EDIT: The problems seem to have been sorted out now.
To all the people who said this was fake, did you actually read any of the thread? This was not a problem with my router.
