PSN ban IP because of Netduma

Recommended Posts

PSN has contacted me saying that my network has a device that is being identified as malicious on their system. The only device i have connected to my network is my ps4 and netduma r1 router. I requested for a new IP address from verizon and disconnected the netduma, and everything was fine. As soon as i reconnected the netduma, the IP was blocked again. What should I do?

someone who has verizon will post on here or someone with more knowledge but if this is correct then you are the 1st person ever to have this happen to as the netduma is not a cheating device at all. have you tried connecting another router in place of the netduma? I really can't believe what I have just read to be honest!!!

 

i have had the netduma for 18 months and i am on psn also and I am fine here in UK.

My neighbor has optimum internet and I was playing just fine on their internet connection, then decided to connect the netduma and their IP got banned also. I'm enraged and puzzled at the same time.

In over 2 years of having the R1 I have never heard of this happening to anybody else. I would contact PSN tech people on twitter. They are pretty quick to sort out issues usually.

There's a YouTube User, by the name of TheMarkofJ, you've probably heard of him. Anyways, I can guarantee you he have have VerizonFios, and he uses the Netduma. He never once mentioned an IP ban on his channel. Just wanted to throw that out there for ya. I think I also tweeted with someone that also had Fios, and The Duma. But that was some time ago, but I'm certain TheMarkofJ have both.

So I take back my statement. This has absolutely nothing to do with your router. More than likely you're doing something malicious or someone else is doing something malicious on your network which got your IP blacklisted on some database and Sony blocked it to protect their network. Since it's probably also flagged on your account, when you logged in it instantly bans the new IP

Topics like this always omit the precursor of "So I was being a dick on the internet and..."

 

"I got a ban from Xbox Live / PSN for absolutely no reason..."

 

(Except for sending these 200 obscenely violent/hateful/racist messages, boosting, lag-switching)

if both ip's got banned then it sounds like a console ban of some sort... which games were you playing while this happened?

And Bingo was his name...O.

 

It ain't the Duma. He's almost certainly done something else that hasn't been disclosed. It always comes out and it's never Device X or Y to blame, but the ill-behaviour or some other nefarious activity of the supposed 'victim'.

I fixed the problem. Apparently my little brother was playing pokemon Go on his pc using an android emulator (connected to the netduma) and psn was picking that up as a DDOS attack. As soon as we disconnected all the devices from the router one at a time and tested, we found out what was the problem.
