Wait for 5 minutes before plugging them back in. Once both your console and networking equipment have been rebooted, turn on your PS4 and attempt to reconnect to the Wifi network. If the error persists, consider troubleshooting other potential issues such as checking for any system software updates, ensuring your router’s firmware is up to date, and checking for any potential interference with other wireless devices.

Evaluate and Adjust Your Connection Settings

  • Check your network settings to ensure that you are connected to the correct network and that the password is entered correctly.
  • Move your PS4 closer to the router to improve the strength of the Wi-Fi signal.
  • Check for interference from other devices or nearby networks that could be affecting your connection.
  • Switch to a wired connection if possible to eliminate any potential Wi-Fi issues.
  • Reset your router by unplugging it for a few minutes and then plugging it back in to see if that resolves the issue.

Modify Network Configuration Details

If using Wi-Fi, select your network and enter the password. Once connected, highlight the network and press the Options button. Choose “Advanced Settings” and then select “DHCP Host Name.” Change the value to “Do Not Specify.”

If using a LAN connection, select the “Custom” option and follow the on-screen instructions. When prompted for DHCP Host Name, select “Do Not Specify.”

After making these changes, restart your PS4 and attempt to reconnect to the internet. If the error persists, consider power cycling your router and modem.

Remember to also check for any firmware updates for your router and ensure that your network settings comply with the requirements of your Internet Service Provider.

By making these modifications to your network configuration details, you can troubleshoot and resolve the CE-37813-2 error on your PS4.

Consider Network Hardware Reset or Replacement
