Connection Failed Error PS4

    1. Restart your router or PS4
      Restarting your router and playstation 4 often fixes most errors! Do a hard reset by turning it off and removing the power supply. Wait 10 seconds and plug it back in.
      Before turning your PS4 back on make sure your router is turned off. Turn on your PS4 and then your router.
    2. Change DNS Settings
      • Go to the PS4 Menu -> Settings -> Network -> Set Up Internet Connection
      • Select WIFI or LAN cable (We recommend LAN)
      • Set DNS Settings to manual and use 8.8.8.8 as the primary DNS and 8.8.4.4. as the secondary DNS.
      • Set MTU Settings (Automatic) > Proxy Server (Do not use)
    3. Change WIFI transmission mode
      If your WIFI cant connect to the WIFI you should try the following fix that worked for many users online. Drop the WIFI transmission mode to 54 MBit/s in the router setup.

    4. Disable N Mode on your WIFI settings
      Users on reddit confirmed that disabling N mode in your router wireless settings solved their connection issues. Go to your WIFI settings in your router and disable N mode.
    5. Reset your router to default settings

      1. From the PS4 Menu (XMB), scroll right to Settings > Network > Set Up Internet Connection > Select either Wi-Fi or LAN cable (Wired)
        • Wi-Fi: Custom > Select Network > Enter Password (automatically saved if you are already using this network) > IP Address Settings (automatic) > DHCP Host Name (Do Not Use) > DNS Settings (Manual)
        • LAN (Wired): Custom > IP Address Settings (Automatic) > DHCP Host Name (Do Not Use) > DNS Settings (Manual)
      2. From there, enter the Primary DNS as “8.8.8.8” and the Secondary DNS as “8.8.4.4”
      3. Next > MTU Settings (Automatic) > Proxy Server (Do Not Use) > Test Internet Connection

*If the above DNS server does not resolve the issue, try the following server instead:

   Primary DNS: 208.67.222.222

   Secondary DNS: 208.67.220.220

If none of these works call your ISP and ask them to reset your modem.
