Brand new MP issue today - experienced by many. "Please make sure your internet is connected" appears when it is connected. Cannot play MP.
As stated in the title: internet works for all applications but after attempting to join Factions MP, (sometimes after the loading wheel appears), the message "Please make sure your system in connected to the Internet and that the [Connect to the Internet] setting is turned on." appears. Several have reported this irritating error.
PSN was undergoing maintenance yesterday at various points. Let us know if you are still encountering this issue.
Also, the internet works for all applications including other titles with online play.
I'm currently having the same issue where my internet connection is fine and works for all application, but when I try connecting to Faction, it displays the message "Please make sure your system is connected to the Internet and that the [Connect to the Internet] setting is turned on." I ran a connection test and my Nat type is Type 2, my upload speed is 1.4 Mbps, and my download speed is 7.6 Mbps.
Yes i have the same problem with you
When you run a connection test, what are your Nat type, upload and download speeds?
When you say the internet works for all applications, does that include other titles with online play? If not, can you check one, as there have been some PSN maintenance windows around the time you reported this.
