[Answered] PSN Error Code 8002A212 Help!
I woke up this morning to see that i could not log into PSN. so i went surfing to find fixes and only found out that one guy posted a Youtube video about the same thing.
I am pretty good at fixing problems but i think this one is related to me using PS3.Proxyserver.GUI. If i turn on PS3.Proxyserver.GUI (on my computer) and turn on my PS3 my internet access is fine but if i run a connection test i get the same result as the guy in the youtube video i spoke about earlier. (You have been sign out of playstation network ERROR 8002A212) now...
If I switch my PS3 to go directly to the internet (without going through my PC) it will ask for my to update my firmware... which I do not want to do.I don't think there are any alternate programs out there so What can I do? is anyone else having this problem?
By the way I have done my research on this problem and here are some ideas from other sites and threads that I know are not the reasons and definitely not the solutions to this problem.
-its maintenance Sony is conduction on the Playstation Network it will be back up soon... not true because other people had similar problems within the last 24 hours and now there systems are back up... and none of them were using a proxy server.
-its your connection...not true come on, I am an IT in the military give me some credit if i can network a 3 story building alone i can wire my PS3/PC/router correctly at my house.
its the name brand of your router...not true, think about it,it was working 7 hours ago ( the time it took for me to sleep) a router does not have the capability to update itself overnight and tell a computer that it is not excepting certain CAT5/6 connections.
It would be nice if the creator of PS3proxyserverGUI would reply to this because people will stop using his program unless he knows about it.
I just realised this is the same thing that happens at least once a year or so when a major store update is done, also usually not long after there has been a firmware update. You *will* have to update, but then you can always lag 2-3 versions down before having to do it again, unless of course they do something major again. It happened ocassionally on earlier fw updates for instance 2.3 and I think 2.5 last year.
In any case if you can't hold out on a lower firmware any longer you might as well update and then you will be able to resume using the proxy of your choice. You'll be on the latest fw, but at least you will be able to skip another 2-3 minor fw updates till you have to do it again.
