I would say this is easily the best method.

May I ask you where did you create your /update/ps3/list/%country%/ps3-updatelist.txt ?

I've put the file in /jffs/update/..../ps3-updatelist.txt, but I'm not able to go that deep. Putting the file in the root of /jffs/ makes it downloadable by [Register or Login to view links].

Many thanks in advance !

Same thing was happening to me... no problems last night, but today no access. same error message.So I thought I would try and play on line with resistance: fall of man... played this with no problems for about 30 min. Stopped playing and then tried to access the the playstation store... success I'm not sure what was going on... but this seemed to work for me.

how ever (i have a linksys wireless G WRT54G v3) ive been wanting to play with it for a bit now and havent had a good reason till now (how hard is it to mess up the flash btw) but my question is how do i set up something that will allow me to connect to netflix as well as PSN without forcing the update any one got some kind of configuration there using that does this for them whats the trick here

Also interested in a detailed tutorial for DDWRT bypassing if its more relyable than any of the tools and lag reducing (as id asume it would be as data isent relayed from my PS3 through my Router to my PC and back to the router than the internet) but ya any feed back on these issues would be kool

ps3 proxi 1.1 rc3 should let you do that. logan5 didnt let me update games but ps3 proxi did
i'm assuming it should work with netflix, and life with playstation too.

to everyone: sorry for going slightly off topic but how much data (downloads) approximately would life with playstation/folding@home take if i left it on overnight for 10hours at 150kilobytes/sec

edit: gave wrong details (meant to put upload speed), and i figured it out anyway.

I solve the problem, I down load ps3-updatelist.txt from: [Register or Login to view links]

and just change 3.2100 = 3.1500 it seem i was getting that error cause of the image version,
old
(ImageVersion=0000948f)

new
(ImageVersion=0000a20e)

also i wrote the full name of the PSN update server in dnsmasq config file:
old
address=/ps3.update.playstation.net/192.168.1.6

new
address=/fjp01.ps3.update.playstation.net/192.168.1.6

if you didnt enter the full name you will get error that PSN down for maintenance

logs for succeed connection to PSN:

Good work daGraveR! However, those living in the UK will need to add an additional ps3-updatelist.txt, otherwise error code 80028EA8 or 80710102 will be produced.

The additional file goes in the update/ps3/list/uk/ directory, and can be found here:
