Just stumbled on a much better way to the guy that gave me advice... no programs whatsoever. Network settings > Internet Connection Settings > Custom > Set everything as normal) > Set Primary DNS IP to 188.8.131.52. Works flawless.
Thanks for the help though, and i hope this helps others that can't connect via proxy progs.
Wow, that totally worked for me. But I have to ask, what is this ip that i'm using and how's it work?
Just tried LG5Tool (Logan5) method. Works flawlessly for my 40GB Fat on FW 3.15. Laptop running the tool is using Windows 7 32bit. PS3 is on a wired connection to a router subnet which the laptop is also connected to.
Able to access PSN.
Able to access Store.
Able to play Bad Company 2 online.
Unable to access PS Home (Said it was down for essential maintenance)
if you get failed internet checking while doing a test, either stop the proxy and start it again and then do a connection test
stop the proxy, turn off the ps3, turn on the ps3 start the proxy and do a connection test
did that and it now works fine connected to psn and playstation store and modern warfare 2 works fine, thanks for your help!
2. When you want to download a file Logan5 fails, so just stop it, close it and then run PS3 Proxi 1.1 configured as its "help" tab says and without exiting PSN, press the download button and you're there!
