How can you do those tests? And yeah if i try to load a webpage with my ps4 on it acts like i dont have internet at all. It only affects my desktop when my PS4 Pro is on. But i can have my PS4 and my other PS4 on at the same time no problem. And the desktop is fine when the other ps4 is on but my ps4 is off.
There may be an IP address conflict for some reason. Have you first tried powercycling / re-starting the device ? No joy ? Try hard resetting the device to factory defaults by pressing and holding in the recessed reset button on the rear for 30 seconds. You will lose any customized settings.
. Any time my PS4 console is on, my desktop will not connect to the internet for anything. But as soon as I turn off my PS4 the desktop is fine. Why can't they be on at the same time?
Can you be a little more specific as to what exactly happens with your desktop? Browser timeouts? Have you done a traceroute or a ping test to see if there's any connection at all? Did you check the gateway's logs to see if there's a problem? Does this happen to other devices, like the second PS4?
