Solution 2. Test your Internet Connection

PS4 error WV-33898-1 may also be caused by a problematic home network or your ISP is causing the problem. To test it, please see below.

NOTE: If you are connected to a private network, please call the IT administrator to assist you.

  1. Turn off your PS4 and your Modem for at least 30 seconds.
    NOTE: If you have a router, bypass it and directly connect to the modem.
  2. If you have a router try to configure it by setting a Static Ip address with a DNS server for your PS4 using this YouTube video tutorial here.
  3. If you’re using a WiFi connection, try using an ethernet cable.
  4. Test the connection status of the PS4 in [Settings] > [Network] > [Test Internet Connection].
  5. If your home network is used by other users check if they are using a large amount of bandwidth. If it is, wait until it is finished.

If you still can’t identify where the problem is, call your Internet service provider. They might have a problem.
