How can i increase my Playstation 3 Internet Connection Speed?

74 Replies 14,892 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

having wireless signals running in a kitchen is he worst scenario..

Microwaves, fridges, kettles all interfere with the signal. (noise)
Not a good idea really.

I think that if the distance between your router/modem and your PS3 was shorter (with not a wall between them :P), then your connection speed would be much better

I need 50FT having my ps3 in my bedroom and the router downstairs a pain :D

 

I used to have it wired but can't no more , sorry but having to feed the wire out my window and back into the house was a pain

 

Made my room cold so i had to stop using it

 

Wireless saveed me :P

 

However i would like wired but a couple of walls are stopping me........

 

 

Best thing would be to wire it , you could

a , drill

b , wire it around the walls

c , carry on :D

Mate, that's what I use! a 20FT ethernet cable only cost me around £5 which is a good price really, my PS3 is in my room and my router is downstairs!

Yes run an Ethernet cable from ur modem to the ps3. Then go to the Internet settings on the Xmb dashboard and select easy setup. A few other ways to get better connections : go to ur web browser and put in ur modems ip address (generally 192.168.1) be sure to select ur ps3 and go to settings. Turn on dmz hosting ( commonly found in port forwarding tab). Assign ur ps3 a unique ip address ( such as 192.168.0.30 )... This will insure there is no conflict with ur modem or router assigning other devices the same ip or booting the ps3 off to assign another device the ip currently used by the ps3. And finally...this is what fixed my lag and constant ejection from the psn.... Call ur Internet service provider and let them know ur dl and ul speeds. They can tweak them to insure ur connection. Hope I helped, happy gaming!
