This has been driving me crazy for some time, and I have found no way to fix it. I experience random disconnects on PSN, which makes it really difficult to play online. It happens just sitting at the XMB, it happens in game, it happens why downloading stuff, pretty much it just happens whenever it feels like it. Now I have tried all kinds of different things, to rid of the problem, with nothing working. I am starting to just think the uverse service or the 3800HGV-B is at fault. Here are some examples of things I have tried.
Wireless, no security
Putting PS3 in the DMZ
Manually forwarding ports
adjusting tcp/udp timeouts
Disabling UpnP on the ps3
Enabling UpnP on the ps3
Disabling Media server on the ps3
Static ip's, ofcourse
Disabling every security/firewall feature I could findDisconnecting all other ports
Then as kinda last resort, I decided to hook my WRT54GS(firmware dd-wrt v24) up, and give it the DMZ(plus) via the 3800HGV-B. So I am running a router behind a router, but I am doing it the proper way.
I then gave my PS3 a static ip, via the WRT54GS.
Then I tried everything I could think of, including the stuff above. Same problems, random disconnects.
My Nat Type is 2, which should be a good thing. Ofcourse I can not do a direct connect, because the nature of Uverse, makes it impossible, because the modem is also a router. Now I know my PS3/PSN works fine with other ISP's and hardware, as I have tested it at other households (I even brought my router along). I am really thinking there is no fix
and possibly canceling my service over this little problem, that is driving me mad.

I think that you would have better luck asking this question on the PS boards. Since there is much more activity there. I have PS3 but use a wired connection and have not had any problems.

I figured I would have better luck here, seeing as more people would be familar with my hardware.
Over there, you just get the normal replies, try direct connect, open the ports, get a better isp, blah....

Bad line? Nah that cant be it. As my other devices using the connection, never loose connection. Pc, the other televisions, voip adapter. Its just the PS3/PSN that is giving me fits.
Bad router? If this was the case, then the other devices should be having issue's also.

Maybe try a new/different line of Ethernet; could be loose wire in the connector, someone had that happen before with Internet.

Yea. Plus the error still happens, even when the PS3 is behind another router
So, which port the PS3 is using, on either of the routers, makes no difference.

ok this is how i have my PS3 set up with the U-versei opened the firewall ports for the tcp and the udp so that it will go through all the possable portsyou can find the ports on the PSN web site. i also have my ps3 set for the 100baseT instead of auto. all the rest is auto. this is a wired set up i also use cat6 wire. this is not a complete fix since its not the u-verse all the time it seems since the latest update for the PS3 it has been frezing up my PS3 to where it has to be powered down. i hope that helps

Wow, finally someone else with the same problem I have. I haven't found a fix either, and it's been irritating over the past couple of months. I've found that cycling power to the RG seems to help for a little while, but then PS3/PSN disconnects or doesn't work again the next day or later that same evening.
Any light on this problem?
