Re: PlayStation Network

Have the PlayStations been able to connect via WiFi before and have now stopped connecting?

Based on similar posts I have found online there appears to be a glitch with the PS4 and so you might be better taking this up with Sony.  It seems like the WiFi settings that are stored on the PS4 can become corrupted and you need to remove them and reconnect.  As far as I can tell the only sure fire way of removing the settings is to initialise the PS4, but that is a bit drastic.

Another option could be to setup a guest network on your hub and try connecting the PS4 to the guest wireless SSID.  If the issue is just with the settings stored for the main VM SSID on your PS4, then connecting to a new one could bypass the issue.  You could also test this by renaming your main VM SSID but that impacts all your other wireless devices that would need to be setup for the new SSID and may not fix the issue.

Re: PlayStation Network

Well initialised one PS4 that didn’t fix the issue I’m afraid

Sorry to hear that. Have you tried the guest network option?

Re: PlayStation Network

A wired connection is better for online gaming so if it is possible for you to use wired connection then it is pointless to use wifi.

Why the ps4 won't connect using wifi is a question I can't answer. Sorry.

Re: PlayStation Network

Can you turn your Mobile Phone into a HOTSPOT, connect the PS4 to the Phone via Wifi.

If this works, it proves the PS4 WIFI is working.

Also on your SH3 make the SSID for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz different, having the same name, this has fixed issues before.

Ie SSID and SSID_5G
