Still going strong. I gave my ps3 it's own ip address. I put it's ip address into the DMZ server along with a couple other tweaks and have not had any problems what so ever since then. If anyone would like any more details on how I have my router/ps3 set up let me know on here.
I have the same problem. 24 mb/s on my laptop and 1.8 to 2 mb/s on the ps3 - back and forth plugging and unplugging and the speeds are all consistent. So, it's the ps3 that's the problem. And, I'm trying to watch HD programming on amazon prime and all programming shows in regular format, none in HD. So, the speed problem is existing there and is affecting my ability to use the features of the PS3. Any help for those of us suffering this problem would be greatly appreciated.
Frost, Can you give detailed steps please? I just upgraded to Comcast 25mbps and have a Linksys E2500 dual band 300mbps router. I get solid speeds on my iPhone but my PS3 connection is around 2-4mbps. But it fluctuates during HD Amazon movie streaming and in gaming there's a lot of stutter now.
I've had the same problem for years. I have an original launch PS3 and cannot get over 1 or so Mbps. Which makes it unplayable on multiplayer. Very long downloads for demos, Home and everything else. Which is why the PS3 is pretty much a doorstop for me now. I switched to a 360 for my family's main gaming device about two years ago.
My 360 gets very fast download speeds and multiplayer.
I have many other devices over wifi as well (ipads, ipods, laptop, desktop pc, Galaxy S3, etc).
I've gone through three routers since I first got the PS3 - various manufacturers. Every time, I hope that the new router somehow fixes the issue. No dice.
The problem here is the PS3. That said, I'm very wary of the upcoming PS4 as they may put a garbage wireless card in there like they did in my PS3. So I'm leaning Xbox One this fall for now.
It's possible to share your tips FrostC1Elite? I got a serious slow speed in PS3. To have an idea left by downloading Saints Row (8GB) and after about 7 hours were done downloading only 17%.
My download is 12MB and the model of my router is a Linksys E2500 with DD-WRT v24-sp2 firmwire. I put PS3 Mac priority in QoS, is basically the only thing I did, the rest is in default.
