PS3 has internet, but can't sign in to PSN

Okay, so I get home today to troubleshoot this issue and everything seems to work fine

No idea what it was. Still having issues with the media server, but that may just involve resetting that setting.

Mods can delete this if they wish.

So, I thought I would prostrate myself humbly before the folk in this forum because your invaluable insight has helped me before...

Starting last weekend, my PS3 has stopped connecting to my media server pc and the PSN store/user log in has failed.

It's a wireless connection.

I went through the steps, re-connected to the router (re-entered all the stuff manually)...UnPnP is enabled. Nat 2 (free and clear). IP address found without issue. I can even browse the internet on the machine.

I'm going to try a wired connection tonight and see if that shakes it up some. Other thoughts I'm thinking about is that the DNS server on the wireless router I have is giving it fits...not finding the PSN store correctly or something. I would dearly love to flush the DNS on the PS3 to see if that could do it.

I'm going to end up hard-coding the ISP's DNS into the PS3 to see if that helps.

I'm just curious to see if this happened to anyone else? Still maintaining internet access, but suddenly refusing to connect to my media server (or even find it for that matter) and the PSN network. The odd thing is really that it can't find the media server on the same LAN as itself...I hope my PS3's wireless isn't getting borked

(I've tried searching online, but most of the stories I read are illegible)

I have run into this same problem. I can browse the internet on the machine itself but I cannot connect to PSN. It tries to connect for like 30 seconds and then tells me there was an error and I have been signed out. My friend verified for me that I have been signing in and out for split seconds all night.

It is the same whether I plug in an Ethernet cable or try wireless. I've unplugged my modem as I heard that fixed some problems but it didn't work. Any ideas?

It's probably not your gear. Last night I couldn't get signed into the store at all but I could browse the web from the PS3. Works fine now.

I see this now. I guess I was just one of the first to get blocked out.
