Go into your Network settings, and change your MTU setting to 1473, leave everything else however you had it. This change has worked for 10 of my friends, really random but try it!

I'm in HK, friends are in Aus.

Hope this works for you guys.

Yeah, this got me in to Destiny.

My internet connection test failed at the PSN sign in after doing this, but I went through it again, failed again, then just quit out of network settings and signed in under Settings > PSN > Sign in, and in like a charm first try.

huh...random. what i don't understand is why people have been able to login without doing this if this is in fact a thing. is it game specific? are you all playing destiny or something?

Hmm, weird it seems to work for everyone but me. I just get the "Cannot connect to the server within the time limit". Which i got prior to this "fix" as well as after.

Go to your PC or laptop and determine your optimum size (MTU) that can be sent in 1 lump and not 2 will optimise your bandwidth and login potential.

Its your router that does this.

Go to cmd.exe

enter / type ping google.com -f -l 1472

Change by 1 up / down and find maximum number / size YOUR router can ping.

For me it was 1474. Then for MTU it has a 28 bit header, so your MTU = this number + 28.

Hence for my router BT hub 5 UK = 1474 (test) + 28 gives optimum MTU = 1492.

If you put in the lower number it will also work on Ps4, but your bandwidth on Ps4 will be down a small amount

I've now been trying various settings for 20 Minute.

It seems to me that below 1480 I have the most success to sign in. I jumped around the various MTU configurations without exceeding my actual optimum MTU (1492).

I also had times when 1470 didn't log in but 1476 did and such, so the service is still not working well.
For example: Store loaded sometimes, other times not.

Based on my testing I would say reducing the MTU below the Automatically determined one helps (on average in my one household) but in the end the services are still mostly fucked.

This is what people should be doing.
