Unable to play with friend

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

A while after the Capital Supremecay update me and my brother are suddenly unable to play together (PS4). Before we had no trouble joining eachother's game, but now the player who is joins the other's party is automatically thrown out of the game when he enters the loading screen. So when we are in the same party and a game starts loading, one of us actually joins the game and the other returns to the menu with an error code showing up. We already tried changing ping sites. Can anyone help us out?

Make sure that both of the PS4 do have different IP on them it may need to set up two different static IP to the modem/router. @TheAdonix

  1. Thanks for responding! We are on the same network. Both our PS4's are connected via a LAN cable to the same router (we already tried restarting the router). The error codes we get are 201 and 216.
