Hi I was just wondering if anyone has a fix to the problem where all the PlayStation’s in my house now have trouble connecting to servers. All of them went down at the same time last weekend and all fail to connect to servers.
i have talked to the level 2 tech support and they sent out a new router but are still having the exact same problem was with the old router.
i have talked to PlayStation and they have told me it is on telstra side. I saw a crowd support topic the same as this in February but it had no way to solve it. Please if anyone has been through this help us out thankyou

Suggest you disable LAN IPv6 in the modem (Advanced > Local Network), disconnect and reconnect play station and then set the DNS in the play station to google public DNS (22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199)
To do this
Choose “Set Up Internet Connection” under the Network menu in Settings.
Select either Wi-Fi (select your Wi-Fi network and enter password) or LAN Cable.
Choose Custom on the next screen.
Select your normal settings for IP Address Settings or Automatic if unknown.
Select your normal settings for DHCP Host Name or Do Not Specify if unknown.
Enter 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 for DNS settings
Select Automatic for MTU Settings.
Select Next to continue.
Select your normal settings for Proxy Server or Do Not Use if unknown.
Thanks for the reply
i did all this still failing at nat type it works sometimes but majority of times it fails
i just don’t understand why it all of a sudden started doing it a week ago out of nowhere something must have changed on their end
Which modem do do you have. If its a Telstra smart gen 2 there are two a Technicolor DJA0231 which has air cooling vents on the side and a Arcadyan LH1000 which has no air vents.
If the play station is failing at NAT Type this is usualy due the required Port not being open. If UNPN is enabled then the modem should be opening the correct ports. The only other thing that could block the ports is if the modem switches to 4 G backup. Has the modem been operating on 4 G backup which would be indicated by modem's front light being blue?
No it’s not operating on back up this new modem and the last modem were both having the same problem. The platinum team did the ports on the old modem still wouldn’t work. Look like it might just be time to leave telstra not paying for something they can deliver. 18 months no problem and then wiped out all 4 PlayStation’s and the wifi is slow and rubbish now as well
If you have an FTTN connection could you provide a screen shot of the line stats. The stats are located here Advanced > Diagnostics > xDSL. These will indicate if there problem with the FTTN link.
Thanks for posting the screen shot. There is an easier way to capture an image of the screen or portion of the screen on a MAC see link below for instructions.
From the screen shot I can see that in the past 15 minutes you would have lost the internet for 2 minutes. (UAS 130). This would indicate there might be an intermittent fault with the NBN link.
That's the only way it will get resolved. They will need to monitor the line for dropouts and forward the request for NBN Co to send a technician out to check the line.
Unfortunately, it may take a few attempts to get them to come out and fix it.
The most likely causes are either a poor termination at the Node (most likely cause), or a faulty joint somewhere between the Node and your premises (less likely and harder to find).
If @cf4 is correct, and I'm inclined to think they are, our nbn assurance team on 1800 834 273 will be the best team to discuss this issue with, however I would be tactical in my approach. They don't need to know that this stems from a problem with your Playstation connecting to PSN, all they need to know is that you've detected an intermittent fault with the nbn link. If pressed, say you've checked the log file of the router.

Since the 5th July 2019, I have had ongoing issues with my Telstra NBN FTTP connection.
I know 5 other people (2615 postcode) that have Telstra NBN who are having the same issue... I can only assume more of you out there too.
Web pages will freeze when loading and need to be refreshed (sometimes more than once) to load.
bank apps won’t load properly and need to be shut down and try again to get a connection.
PS4 PSN won’t load correctly to play games online (BO4, Apex, Fortnite), May have to keep trying for 30min or more just to get in. Always a problem with PSN servers did not respond/ or ea server or time out errors.
BUT.....as soon as I hotspot my Optus mobile and try..... no issue at all!!??
100% a Telstra / NBN issue, but only started to make progress today 18/07 with platinum support my complaints officer provided. I hope he solves it, seemed like a good one.
If you have the same issue, make some noise and hopefully it can be resolved soon.
After 12 hours on the phone, it is being taken seriously by Telstra.
Looks like civic, melba, mawson, deakin, qbn, jrra exchanges all affected.
This has been escalated to level 2 support, with this forum used as proof also.
Also this one: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/thread/3xkmymv9
I think a fix is very close
still not fixed here at 2630. was told by Telstra that NBN techs would be checking my connection to the node over the weekend. twice they were meant to ring me no call either time great customer service. Its been over two weeks now two weeks of school holidays I don't know what I'm paying for. the customer support is rubbish hopefully knowing more people have this problem it might finally be fixed instead of just getting lied to all the time. we need this fixed it affecting everything now including my business but they don't seem to care I have written this about six times on my phone but it wouldn't let me post it due to errors so hopefully, it goes through this time.
as far as I know, Telstra never even contacted the NBN to check the node connection. if I knew that leaving Telstra would fix the problem I would be long gone after the way they have treated me. I don't see them fixing it anytime soon but I hope they do
Agreed, each time Telstra escalated it to NBN, NBN did nothing and said everything was good. I’m assuming they performed basic line test that did not identify the issue at the exchanges.
Im not sure why it has taken Telstra so long to progress this issue, it’s a failure for Telstra’s Faults people. They are only trained to read a script and perform basic line tests that focus on the problem being on the customers side.
Telstra also seems incapable of grouping all the faults reported together to understand a bigger issue is at play.
Telstra is yet to even acknowledge that there is an issue online, to let its customers know its being looked at.
Im hopeful it is only days way from a fix, but as always the more complaints the better.
would going to another provider fix the problem do you think? I only have 3 more months left on my contract and I'm not going to pay for a service they cannot provide
From what I understand, it is a Telstra only issue. But I could not say 100% for sure.
For me, it’s dragged out this long I may as well ride it out, but I will make sure Telstra properly compensate me.
Still no new info, finally spoke to my case officer, who had no update. Said still with level 2 support.
I requested they release me from my contract, which they did (free of charge) I’m now going to another ISP
Telstra are literally no help with this issue and I have zero confidence with them. New ISP = no problem.
Have been having similar issues for about two weeks as well. Finally got around to plugging in the new supplied Smart Modem 2 (Technicolor model) to start the transfer over to nbn (am in 2906). Plugged in our Netgear R7000 which is configured to act just as an access point. Waited until all lights had returned to normal. Then tried streaming to one of the PS4s in the house, Foxtel Now, Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. All appear to have connectivity issues. Also tried to connect to some game servers but got timeout errors. Tried the Telstra TV2 we have and repeated issue with connectivity/buffering there too. In frustration I unplugged the Smart Modem and returned to the Netgear D1500 we had been using successfully beforehand, and ask works as it should again.
I guess I'll be waiting until we get cutover to our FTTN connection and trying all again, and then ring support when we experience issues. Not looking forward to that.
