    STILL can't connect to PSN

    I bought a new PS3 about a month ago after my old 40GB YLO'D.

    I tried everything to get it fixed, but all I get is "The connection with PSN timed out."

    So I got a new new PS3, after ringing Sony(they couldn't work out the problem, so they said it was a hardware problem and you can exchange it for another) and got another one.

    But, I still get this "Time out" message. I've tried all the DNS nonsense, looked at all the forums. But nothing.

    Have I wasted 250? Please help! My life is so boring without PSN.

    Tell us more about your set-up. Hard wired? Wireless? If wireless what's your WIFI percentage? Are you in a DMZ? Is your router configured properly? Are your PS3 connection setting correct? etc......

    I am wireless. 90 - 100% signal mostly.

    I turned the DMZ on(I don't know the technical term) but it has made no difference.

    Vintage - I'm going to buy a new one and see if it works.

    It's just so strange. If I create a new user on the PS3,(user 1,2 etc) I get the "Sign up for PSN" thing to click on. So I click on it, and select "Sign in with an existing account."

    It says "Hello stefan_k. Proceed to the PS store."

    So I click ok and then it automatically signs me out!

    It's odd because my old PS3 worked fine.

    When you "enabled" the DMZ, did you put that IP address into your PS3 connection settings?
