Your internet might not be able to handle both of you playing at the same time either your bandwith is getting used or your internet just sucks

For what internet speeds are you paying for? Because by the sound of it, you need better upload speeds.

 

Visit this website www.speedtest.net run the speed test and post your results here.

Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with everyone else. Sounds like you need more bandwidth.

That is way too slow. but then again, the PS3 speed test is at rarely ever 99% accurate but never too far from the real result. Follow the link I previously share and run a test; if you don't trust my links, then sure go by the PS3's speed test. But yeah, you will have to upgrade your internet speeds.

i'll try that tomorrow. now it's saying 284.2 KBPS. what would be an acceptable minimum upload speed? i'm thinking of changing providers when i move and according to their site if i go with their one package i'd be getting 1 MBPS upload speed

if you start to lag when someone else gets online then you need a higher download speed.  You need to get a better internet package or even change providers.

Internet

Its whatever God says it is, try not to let Satan trick you or lie to you. A lie can be twisted so much but its still a lie, same with tricks. Also know noone is perfect except Jesus, we all will mess up from time to time. So try not to be, to hard on yourself or others.

go to speedtest.net or dslreports.com 

 

to get a REAL test....

 

the PS3 speed test is nothing but a "best guess" and its not that great. It will only give you false positives.
