Hi @Lasermachine24 When you tether via a mobile device, your Playstation will automatically change your NAT to NAT Type 3, this means that access is restricted. You have access to the internet but you'll be unable to download/upload any data.

 

I'd recommend trying to change you DNS to Google DNS (8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4). 

 

You can do this by following these steps:

 

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Go to Network.
  3. Go to Set Up Internet Connection.
  4. Select Wi-Fi/LAN depending on what you use to connect.
  5. Select Custom.
  6. IP Address Settings = Automatic.
  7. DHCP Host Name = Do Not Specify.
  8. DNS Settings = Manual. Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4.

Let us know how you get on.
