I have a PS3 and play on line but I have never experienced your problem. What game is it you are playing on?

The only possible explanation I could give would be that if its a new game there may be loads of people trying to play it on line.

I'm on call of duty, i'm sure its my server, tiscali ?

The server they refer to is the PC upon which the game is being hosted. You usually have the option of selecting different ones. If a friend is hosting the game (or you are) then you need a very good Broadband connection, preferably Cable.
Does your PS3 connect to the internet? You can check by seeing if the PS3 homepage opens.

Go to the network settings section on the PS3 and see what the signal strength is. It should be a % figure.

I will checkt soon and let you know

the signal strength is very strong, about 90%
