PS4 error code NW-31201-7 intermittently

For the last month or so my Playstation 4 intermittently gives me the NW-31201-7 error code. This code alludes to cannot connect to the playstation network even though the network is most definitely up and running.

This happens on both a Belkin power lined ethernet connection and the Playstation in-built WiFi connection.

Once I test the connection it will get as far as internet connection test and fail or sometimes get to playstation network sign-in and fail. 

As soon as I connect to the 4G hotspot on my Huawei phone it connects with no issues.

I have tried different DNS settings ( and this can sometimes help but it seems like a red herring.

I am guessing you have a SH3. Do a search for PUMA 6 Test, post the results back here.

Red (VM SH2 AC Beta tester)
Running on 1Gbps VM service with SH4 in Modem Mode, with a ASUS RT-AC5300 router. With this setup I get Fantastic WIRED and WIRELESS Signals in my home. I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech.
My advice is at your own risk. If you are happy with my answers please press Kudo ?

Read this thread for the hub


If you cant connect by cable I recommend a third party router for that Wifi coverage boost - this will also help if you have many devices.

How do I put the Hub into modem mode?

ASUS RT-AC86U (£150) (old version)

ASUS RT-AX86U (£230) (new version)
