PSN problems

Gamers in the United States can check the PlayStation Network server status over on the official PSN status page, but majority of the time PSN users report issues before anyone else including the officials. Now you can also report any PSN problems you have with Is Down Right Now USA.

PSN maintenance from May 11 7:30 PM PDT

Users are always the first to report any PlayStation Network outage issues; they take to social networks such as Twitter to let everyone know what problems are happening at that given time. PS3, PS4 and other Sony Platform owners connect to the PSN for online gaming etc, and even though gaming has been improved through PS Plus the extra benefits does not stop the service faltering.

Majority of the PSN problems are related to connection, login, complete blackout (PSN outage), where gamers cannot access their games. Below is where PSN problems will be listed, please do list your real-time PSN live status here on Is Down Right Now USA. Your feedback is important, please do add your location to your report.

PSN status reports for Sunday 4th of December 2016

To find out if PSN is down right now, see reports below.

  • Scott M

    You have to modify the “Primary and Secondary DNS Server” settings in your router. You can normally access your router by going to or and logging in.

    Then it is normally in the “Advanced” area under the “Internet” settings page. Change the option under DNS Servers from “Get Automatically From ISP ” to “Use the following IP Address” Primary = Secondary =

    Hey all, I was unable to login even if u did network test, reset PS4 or reset the router.
    But I went to my player icon and pushed X on it to try to login and it asked a few privacy questions then it asks about a Cover Photo for ur profile. After doing that I was able to sign in.
    Hope this helps.

  • Freddie Dixon

  • D. Brown

    Here in Florida the systems for online were very spotty starting late friday night. Meaning menus took awhile to load if they did at all. Saturday same thing. Sunday the server finally crashed about 4pm est and I have not been able to log in since then. 24 hours later still no network. Why do we pay for a service that is sub par? And Sony has yet to issue a statement about the problems people are experiencing.

  • Jonathan Brooks

    Psn is working in Lansing, MI but download speeds are terrible. I’m rocking 70 Mbps but actuality is much less. I’ve been downloading modern warfare for over 24 hours now and it still says 7 remaining.

  • Mark E Lowe

  • Zach

    Guys! I figured out a fix! Go to settings, network settings, internet connection settings, custom, wireless, enter manually, then just keep going right until you hit DNS Setting. Click Manual, and then for the top numbers type 4222 then for the bottom type 4221 click x then go to the right until you find connection test. Test it and it works 😉 Your Welcome!
