Signing in to PSN
Since updating my PS3 to the new 3.30 update I have had a problem signing into PSN. I don't have it set to automatic sign-in so have to initiate it myself.

One of three things then happen, either it takes forever and I get the message to check my internet connection, I get signed in normally or I get signed in but my friends list doesn't get loaded and then I get a message that there was a problem and I get signed out.

Are others having this same problem? Should I inform Sony or do you thing they already now about this?

I had a similar problem a while ago, but I don't think it was specifically related to a firmware update. The way I fixed it was to set the IP address on your PS3 and input your DNS servers into the PS3. You will then connect to the internet and PSN much much faster, at least that was my experience.

Really? My connection is very good but I'll give this a try anyways. Since I'm doing that I might as well forward some ports as well.

Let me know if it works!

Pulling out my networking notes I noticed that I had scratched down a static IP for the PS3 before but had just forgotten about it. Going back into my settings I noticed that it had been reset, strange but I have had the situation where after an update my theme has been reset so it might have been that.

I went in and set it up manual and tested it out but again it took quite a bit of time. I'll be trying the port forwarding (it can't hurt) so see if that does anything else.

Will post here if I notice any difference.
