I have a ht1000 modem and a netgear n300 router. I can watch netflix with the PS3 but when I try to play multi player BO it connects but just says waiting for 5 more players. I turned web accelerator off but did not help. I also DL net gear genie and for some reason it says wifi is off. Wondering what I can do to fix this. Any help? Oh and all 3 Ip address' are diff. I guess that makes a diff.
Vearing off topic here. I dont care how it will run if I cant even get it to run at all. My old connection was dial up speed and I played it all the time. Sure I got noticed rounding a corner much sooner then I noticed the enemy but it was still fun when I had my good days at the top of the list. HN says it will work but will have a half second delay. That half second is actually an improvment over what I had for the last two years.
So to get past this here is the info regaurding the off topic responces. Then I hope we can proceed with helping me to get it working. I would at least like to try it.
My old connection :
My new connection:
Online gaming is not about speed, it's about Ping. Lower ping is better, not the other way around. Ping is the measure (in milliseconds) of the delay when signal travels from one point to another.
Could you head over here and post back on your ping?
That link did not work when tested so let me try this one.
That's "F" as in "Failed."
While higher speed is always better for most applications, Online Gaming is more dependant on Ping. Specifically, LOW ping. Ping is the time it takes for your internet connection to send a signal and recieve it back. As I said, due to the distance of satellite up in the sky, pings are inheritantly high, too high to support online games.
While Netflix works because of raw speed and lack of interactivity, games do not as they depend on short, small packets rapidly being exchanged from all PS3s. Speed here won't help. Lower pings do.
According to PingTest, you should talk to your provider about how to lower Ping. I don't have much hope though, it's because Satellite is inheritantly high-ping because of design...
Aww. Its all starting to make sense now. Dang it. I get better service that cost more but its not better at everything. Dam the luck. I have no other option. Cave man crap.
If I do find a way to lower the PING rate then how low do you think it would need to be? Not sure where to find that info. Thanks for all the help. I need a cable line ran in my area. Wish I would have thought about that before I bought this god forsaken place.
