PS3 connection error 80029020, using Thompson 535

Hi, I just got Plusnet last night with standard Thompson router.  All is working fine but:
I connected the PS3 and am able to connect to PSN.  However when I test the connection everything seems right, Nat type 2 etc, but the speed calibration fails and I get the error message 80029020.
Weirdly though I was able to connect to friends playing Dead Island last night but it froze quite quickly,
I have just done the standard set up so far, because I don't really know what I am doing! Any advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum stratattack.
What's your internet like generally, do a BT Speedtest and post the results.
Do you have uPNP enabled on the router and PS3?

Thanks Strat.  I mucked about with router settings last night, assigned a static address, attempted to put in DMZ etc.  I had no luck so returned the settings to normal and it worked!  I'm not really sure why but i am very happy.  The connection is strong and constant so very pleased with plusnet at the moment.  See you online some time

With a forum name like stratattack I should probably say "I hope not" Wink
Anyway it'll be BF3 in about a month so maybe see you there Smiley

I assure you the name is purely coincidence!
I am a COD guy but I might have to give bf a go this year.
