I havent got mine yet. How did my fellow Ozzies register without upgrading firmware?
I set Simple DNS with the setting required (except i used the 'dau' and 'fau' prefixes as required for aussie connections and 22.214.171.124 as directed. I set the dns at 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 as is required for me to connect for some reason.
Then for ps3.proxy i set the proxy to 192.168.0.2 and port to 80 which my computer is and set the DHCP to the name of my router as i have dhcp setup. I can connect to the webpage and obtain an IP but am still prompted for the upgrade when i try to register or go to the store.
I registered on the UK PSN months ago (Sep I think), bought my console in the US in Jan, and received my BD last week to my UK address. Not sure what or how that happened, but I never received an email or anything. I haven't even registered my console anywhere.
