Wired Vs Wireless for Home

[ Edited ]
17 replies 276 views Edited Jun 12, 2014

Lately, I've been using my wireless connection on my PS3 and I can certainly tell the difference.  Wired is so much better and stronger!!

 

I still get good speed while using wireless for my PS3, some Home spaces take forever to load, including avatars.  I tried to go to Acorn Meadow Park this morning, being wireless and just couldn't do it.  I started from my studio as well.  But being wired I could.    

 

Why are we still in the stages of downloading stuff.  Should be pop up ready and ready to go.   Some places are too big and take forever, being wireless.  It's painful watching it.  

 

I would strongly recommend being wired when using Home.  So much stronger connection and download a lot quicker.

You can increase your disk cache for Home, that may alleviate your loading/wait issues somewhat.

 

Wired vs Wireless is a no-brainer in nearly every case. I only use wireless for devices that lack an RJ-45 port.

Is that what that phone jack looking hole on the back of my PS3 is called?! Wow... That's crazy! Smiley Happy

Since my PS3 and PS4 are close to the router anyway, they're wired.

I've never noticed a difference, but my router is only like 8 feet away. I have used wired, but that's running a CAT5 across my floor, which isn't something I wanted to look at. Good wireless is still better than crappy wired. I even paid $10 extra a month for boost, which was a total waste of money.

My router is downstairs but I don't think that makes a difference it being closer.  I certainly see the difference being wireless.  Some loading takes forever and its slow, even with good speed, which I get. 

 

Wired just so much better.  I'm experimenting with both right now.  I can say that, wired is the way to go.
