How can i increase my Playstation 3 Internet Connection Speed?

74 Replies 14,566 Views Created 04-10-2009

Was playing fifa 10 yesterday online with a mate, and my Modem(Virgin Media) and my router(Netgear), is in the kitchen and my PS3 is in the lounge, and the modem and router are about 3Feet away from the PS3(if we knocked down the wall) between the lounge and the kitchen.

 

So basically, my Modem is connected to this small white box on the wall, is there anyway of moving my modem and router?

 

 because i want to put them into my lounge to boost my PS3 internet speed

Wired is the way to go to decrease 'ping' which is the delay or lag you sometimes experience while on line gaming, upload and download speeds have little to do with it as long as you broadband

You need an ethernet cable from your router to your PS3

If you have more than 90mS of ping your setup sucks
