Looks like Sony Computer Entertainment is finally making some progress in addressing the issues that have been affecting PSN users since Christmas.
The official support twitter account posted that network updates were performed on PSN, and that this should allow users to log in without resorting to changing the MTU value in their settings.
Update for PS4 users: We’ve made recent updates to the network that should allow you to sign in without changing MTU settings.

We tested it, and it did indeed work for us, allowing for a successful connection with the default value (1500). That said, the house of PlayStation is aware that there are some still suffering from login issues, and requested for feedback in order to fully solve the problem.
If you can’t login yet, you can head to this thread on the official PlayStation forums. You’ll need to post the following data:
- ISP Provider
- Console affected
- Error(s) received – please be specific (screenshots welcome)
Looks like there’s still a sizable number of users facing issues, as the thread has accumulated 269 replies at the moment of this writing, but hopefully we’re close to a positive solution.
If you haven’t tried connecting recently, you may want to give it a try now with default settings. Hopefully you’ll see something similar to the screenshot below (well… Maybe not that slow, upstream speed here is disastrous here in Italy, but that’s not Sony’s fault).
