  • First, make sure that PSN (play station network) is up and running. You can check that by clicking on this link.

  • Make sure you entered the correct Wi-Fi password on your PS4 – navigate to Settings > Network > Set up Internet Connection > Use Wi-Fi. Now select Easy and then choose your network and enter the password.
  • Make sure that your PS4 is placed near the router and if it isn’t, move it closer.
