Ultra-Slow Internet speed on the PS3

22 replies 387 views Edited Jan 2, 2009
Hi, I recently bought I router and when I first bought it and set it up to the PS3 it was working fine and I was getting normal download speeds (same speeds as the wired connection I used before the Router upgrade) but now (about 2 weeks after I bought the router) It goes so slow that If I press X on sign in, then go take a **bleep** in the bathroom and come back its still trying to sign in or it times out. Occasionally, I get a still bad but acceptable enough speed to browse the internet. I went on speedtest.net and tested both the laptop and the ps3 both in the same room, but the laptop was a little farther from the router. I got around 7500 on the laptop and a mere 811 kb/s download speed on the PS3, the upload speed was the same. This is extreamly **bleep**ing slow and I can't take this. Any suggestions?

reset both your router and your modem. see if that helps. every once in a while i have to reset both of mine to keep a good speed.

Yeah I tried that when I had ultra-slow speed and it switches to bad-speed-but-still-able-to-sign-in-and-browse-the-internet.

Problem with router is the firewall. You need to open ports

Woah, just kinda went back to 5000 at least, which is close enough to 7000 for me at least. Kinda random... any suggestions on how to keep this **bleep** from happening again and making me go on a killing spree?

Well I know it has nothing to do with the signal strength because I put my router right next to the ps3 and its still 800 /s

 

Edit: Used an ethernet cord to plug into the back of my ps3 and my router, no good. I don't even know **bleep** is happening, im just going to try the old fasion way and plug the ethernet cord from my modem to my ps3, I know its not my internet because the laptop gets 7000 through the router, so **bleep** yo.

Ok, so I tested my PS3 on the wired connection directly from my modem, and it got around 9100, checked my laptop speed after I power cycled and hooked the router back up again and it got a 10000, checked the PS3 after the power cycle and still a **bleep**ty mere 1000 or less.

Anyone? please? I forwarded the ports and everything, nothing helps, I've heard people say that the internet speed on their PS3 is even faster then the wired connection, so whats my problem can anyone help? I played multiplayer alot when I had my wired connection but I can't now because it will disconnect the Laptop and my dad uses the internet all the time. Power cycling dosn't help ether.
