    I have had this before. It's just a case of the game failing to 'properly' connect to the servers.

    Don't quote me on any of this but my best guess is that it's because the game has so little online traffic right now. From what I remember, the servers would divide everyone online into "blocks" and only allow you to connect with people in your block. Then, every 15-30 minutes, it would shift you to another block of players. This was so connectivity between players was stronger since people in your block were guaranteed to be handled by the same server, and so that you wouldn't constantly be invaded/summoning the exact same people and could get more variety in who you play with.

    My guess is that this system is still in place, but hasn't been reduced down at all since when Demon's Souls was at its peak. What this results in is that there aren't enough players to fill all the blocks, and as you get naturally shifted between them it will end up placing you in an empty block where you are the only player. This explains why you're still online, but have all of your online items/actions disabled if it can't find any other available players required to activate the items.
