hi all, does anyone know whether there is a USB wifi booster you can buy so that you can detect weaker signals and still use them?

Na that would be cool though, I'd be able to move my consoles to the studio then rather than have to buy loads of gear to be able to use the ethernet ports lol

Yeh I have the same problem, with my girlfriends PS3, mine is near the router but hers is in the upstairs study, the house we live in was once three houses and because it's old the walls are foot thick, end result she can't update the PS3.

You need an access point or wireless bridge.

If all you want to do is update the PS3 buddy, just download the updates on a PC stick them on a memory pen and transfer it to your girlfriends PS3:Thumbs:

Do a bit of DIY! Cut a Pringles tube so it's about the length of your wireless router's antennae. The split this in half so it is like a skate board half pipe. Try and secure this onto your antennae so the open half is facing in the direction of where the other PS3 is and hope that this actually worked!

You can but them (ebuyer.com may have some) but they cause lag The booster needs to recieve a signal, boost it, send it to the PS3, the PS3 then sends info back to the booster which then has to turn the signal back to the router and finally, off through the hole in your wall. Move closer to your router.
