Fifa 17 – Demo does not start: What can you do?

Note – Update 04.10.16: The use of the restricted online function is again possible . Reports of existing error messages were faulty, nevertheless we can not find where the cause of the error was. Important : The problem has been resolved, ie the communication between the device protocols is working again. Probably, updates to routers and the Playstation 4 have solved the problem , neither Sony nor the “Unity Media Group” have published this information!

The problem on the Playstation 4 is rooted in the new firmware update 4.0 , this update causes compatibility problems with PSN and Fifa 17 .

The problem lies with Kabel Deutschland and the routers of the Unity Media Group . Their routers can not communicate properly with the console after the Playstation firmware update .

The device protocols Ipv4 and Ipv6 can no longer communicate with each other and Fifa 17 does not start.
Many Playstation owners could therefore not connect to the Internet and of course not to PSN. In routers there are certain methods which control the communication with connected devices. In the case of the PS4, the NAT type (Network Address Translation type) could not be detected, therefore no constant Internet connection could be established and therefore Fifa 17 does not start on the PS4.

The PS4 can be connected to the Internet via a configured router and you can gamble online. In the case of incorrectly configured routers , a firewall often causes problems because this PSN blocks.

These problems also cause the license to expire .
You can in problem cases change the NAT type itself , unfortunately it is not so simple, the start-problem with Fifa to get 17 in the handle, because particularly the firmware update 4.0 also provides problems. Actually, the whole router needs to be reconfigured . The problem is that the NAT types are no longer recognized. Unfortunately, there is currently no easy solution to the problem, especially since it was synonymous earlier with the routers of the Unity Media Group such problems.

Solution for compatibility problems of Ipv4 and Ipv6 protocols

You should not hope that Kabel Deutschland and Sony quickly present a solution. You can become active and methodically eliminate one problem after another.

Renew first the Internet connection .
Then log on to PSN and then back on! Finally, you can restore the licenses .
Unfortunately the problem in this way is only repaired at short notice and the problem can reappear. If we can present a permanent solution for you, we will update the article.
