Re: why does the wifi on ps3 suck?

Sep 10, 2008

I have taken my PS3 many places, friends etc who do not have internet themselves and I can pick up internet from around them and have had no issues.

The only time I have problems is if the connection is below 30% signal strength.

In my apartment I get 100% where ever I am.

 

edit: My connection is not slow either, slower than wired but not slow.

I still get the same speeds of 10 down 1 up but my ping ends up being almost 100x worse.  Ping ends up being like almost 400 over wifi compared to 30-60 wired.

that is the only thing that ends up slowing it down in the end, but not by much.

I have LOS, 100% and don't have problems. Ping averages 50ms and over 1.5MB/s is common down ( 0.1 up). Very rarely do I get disconnected and I can't be sure the wi-fi is to blame.

yea I do not get disconnected ever, speedtest.net is who says my ping is 399.

might have to re-try that though just to be sure it really is that high, because that is horrible.  although in warhawk my ping is never that high.

I play in my room and my router is in the kitchen. Its preaty far, about 9 feet away with walls and what not. Also, tell your wife if why not sharing the TV.

I have never expereicned the problem you guys have and my router is upstairs... its odd, but maybe it has something to do with the structure of the house, or any other factors.

Wifi can suck in general since wireless has a weaker and slower connection then wired at the moment. Your PS3 can only pick up Wireless G signals, no matter what router you have your console will only pick up B or G (G is better, but if you have an older router...)

 

I have a Linksys gaming adapter and it converts the PS3 from wireless G to wireless n.  I find that the connection is 10x more stable than before and if you can believe it my PS3 is about 75 feet away from the router (D-Link) in a seperate building.  For anyone with wireless problems I highly recommend a gaming adapter.
