yeah that was happening to me all the time, but i just turned of the media center thing and i haven't been signed out since...

i think you have to go to network settings and turn it off.....it worked for me so it might work for you.....thumbs up

Yes it happened to me. I disabled Media Server but another thing to do is disable Auto Sign-in, I'm pretty sure that was what was messing up my PS3

thats correct. also it helps to close the playstation bar that floats on the upper right hand corner of your screen.

If your using a wireless connection that would explain it. However if thats not the case then it could be you have a crappy internet connection and the ps3 is not getting enough bandwith to run PSN

That happens whenever I use my cordless phone while my PS3 is on. I guess there is some interference...

If that happens then go into your router settings and change the channel it's broadcasting. Make it 11 and you should be ok.

You can do that? lol I wasn't really bothered by that. Didn't mess with my network any either, so didn't even try.

Change your Primary DNS to: 208.67.222.222 And change your secondary DNS to: 208.67.220.220 I did this, and haven't randomly gotten logged out of PSN since.
