everthing has been OK up to last week. Now PS3 struggles to connect to internet and will only connect by turning home hub off/on, even then after 5 mins disconnects with an error code '807100' and will not reconnect. any help would be welcome
Your error code is little short normally 8 digits, if 92 is on the end ( used to be!) , its your connection dropping. Are you connecting by wireless between your Ps3 and router? & is your broadband generally good.
*edit* Below is 807 range-
80710092 “An error has occurred. you’ve been signed out from the ps network”
80710102 PS3 Cannot connect to the router with current IP information Try rebooting your router
80710541 The connection to the server timed out.
80710B23 PS3 Network is Down or PS3 Network is too busy to respond look at 8002F994
80710D23 Turn the PS3 off for a bit (30 minutes give or take) with the power switch (not standby mode).
Is it a BT Home Hub 2 Type B or a Home Hub 3 Type A perchance? I have been unable to get these Sagem-based hubs to work on my line; they show huge error rates, ridiculously low throughput and so much latency that the XBox wouldn't stay connected.
Doesn't mean for sure that these hubs are faulty, but they don't agree with BT's lines where I am (Huawei MSAN).
Failing the ethernet, you could try changing your wireless channel selection on the Hub, you will have choice of 13. Just go through them hopefully the problem will be solved.
Another issue could be other wireless routers broadcasting on the same channel if you can run this program inSSIDER for windows PC , this will give details on what other wireless routers are broadcasting and on what channel. Just go to hub/ router settings and choose a channel that is free on the inSSIDER or least congested, remember channels over lap either side.
May I suggest you try not reset the hub too often as this could be seen as a issue by the exchange and throw wrath of DLM at your connection!
