If this has just started to become a problem recently, and was working before, you may just need to restart your router.

Otherwise, You'll need to go into your router configuration, and open up certain ports within the firewall that the Playstation needs.

Heres the list of ports that the Playstation requires:

TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658

If you see any options on your firewall regarding "UPnP", you could try enabling that instead, as long as UPnP is enabled on the Playstation, it should be able to figure things out for you.
