Re: Best Router For PS3??

Sep 13, 2007
this community is really about 50/50 with the whole linksys thing.
It seems the people who are lacking when it comes to knowledge about networking and routers tend to say things such as our friend Gnob has stated' nothing but probs stay away"

its truly not like that and linksys is the best way to go.
( just no GAMING ROUTER get a regular one)

actually linksys has nothing but problems with the ps3 disconnections and a lot of network errors if you search the forum for linksys i garentee you will come up with nothing but complaint threads so stay away from linksys with ps3



Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

I have a D-Link draft N router  wireless
I also needed it to work with windows Vista, XP, PSP, 360.  Never have had a problem with any of my end components connecting.
 
Just don't use a free netgear router....

yo dude, you need to update your firmware,,,if you did that already then make sure all settings are default, anything past that its either faulty router, or your ISP tends to drop.

BUT updateing firmware is a HUGE fix for disconnects

when did you update it, you sure you have the current firmware? are all your settings back to defualt or did you change things in the router and leave them.

also what ISP do you have. The only reason for linksys to drop you is a bad(faulty) router, screwed up settings or subpar ISP connection.

and you do mean you updated your ROUTERS firmware, not the ps3 firmware correct?

the model is more importat then the brand . The best compatible model/type is a 802.11g MIMO. 802.11n is overkill as is it will down throttle to g when connected to PS3. As a engineer I prefer Buffalo over other brands.

I had a problem running 2 ps3s on a linksys 54g, N type was recommended, I changed to a d-link 655, it was very user friendly, and I rarely have connection problems any more.      (except for downloading 1.93)
