PS3 keeps losing internet connection and when it is connected is very slow

8 Replies 3,000 Views Created 15-02-2010

Hi.

 

I am connecting my PS3 wirelessly to my Netgear router and have never been able to have a robust internet connection. Whenever I try and get on to Playstation Home it takes about 20 attempts and even then it is very slow.

 

Any downloads, updates that I try to do either fail mid-way through or take hours.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks

Re: PS3 keeps losing internet connection and when it is connected is very slow

try this, found via the search function

So, I had this problem with my new PS3. I connected my Mac using MediaLink (by all accounts good software) and switched on the HDMI output on my TV. Expecting to see a mountain of media, I was instead met with a small grey box in the corner of the screen with your typical cryptic error message: DLNA Protocol Error 7531. The fix is really, really simple, at least it was for me. Just restart the ‘service’, as it were, on the PS3. Settings -> Network Settings -> Media Server Connection. Your files should be showing up and the error gone. If not, oh well. Keep plugging away. :-) Update: 6/27/08 12:30PM: This assumes wholeheartedly that the problem is with your PS3. You should obviously make sure everything is working properly first (for instance, from a DLNA-capable phone or other PC, etc.). And by restart, I mean to select “Disable”, back out of the menu, and then go back in and “Enable.” That fixed it immediately for me. You may have to restart your DLNA service on the server as well. Good luck. Please let me know if this works! This is one of those topics you search endlessly for and find no real answer (which I am trying to mitigate.)
