      Do you mean when using the web browser?

      If so, when?
      Streaming?
      Surfing?
      Which websites?

      No no, soz, during gameplay or waiting in lobbys but always online, the single player is fine so far(touch wood), I don't really use the browser on my PS3 but the times I have done it has also worked fine. I never had any freezing issues with xbox and all my net settings are still pretty much the same since changing over to PS3.

      Re: Freezing Issues

      Does it happen with all games?

      Is it a full-on ps3 freeze, where all controller buttons are unresponsive & your only option is to power down using the button on the console?

      Re: Freezing Issues

      Hi Gymno, yes it's a full on freeze where I have to reboot the whole console, funny enough after you mentioned the browser I decided to try it out and it did freeze, 3 times in 5minutes(each time i had to do a full reboot).
      This superslim PS3 is only 2 months old, do you rekon my best bet would be just to exchange it for a new one?
      If I hadn't bought so much new PS3 games I would exchange for an xbox, lol.
      Also the game it freezes on is Black Ops co-op zombies.
      Thanks,
      Mike.

      Re: Freezing Issues

      It shouldn't be anything to do with your broadband connection.
      Many issues can be caused by this but not normally a full-on system freeze.

      The thing about the browser is, it isn't what you'd call 'comprehensive' & if i wanted to, could make it freeze just as often.
      I've gotten used to its quirks though & haven't had one for many months.

      Strange you're only getting freezes when online though.

      Have you tried starting up in safe mode?
      Option 3: restore file system
      Option 4: rebuild database

      These won't wipe anything off your drive (or flash if it's a 12gb) & is the usual advice for freezing problems.

      For safe mode, start with the ps3 in standby (red light on) & do the following.

      1) Hold power button down until you hear the 3rd beep & the ps3 is back in standby.
      2) Hold power button down again. You'll hear 1 beep, a 2nd beep, then 2 quick beeps.
      Let go of the power button straight after this double beep & you'll be in safe mode.

      Just follow the on screen instructions for options 3, then start again & choose option 4.
