Fair enough.  I think my message may have come off much more rudely than I meant for it to. I was more than a little sleepy when I typed it, so if it did, I apologize.

 

If you are using the older style modem/router pair, bridging the router is pretty simple, and will immediately jump your connection from NAT type 3 to 2. All you do is go on the modem admin ad look for the "bridge mode" setting. On my modem it is in the connection section. Then on your router set your router to connect to the internet by entering the username and password and setting it to manage the connection. Most routers have this setting.

 

When connecting, your modem establishes a range of IP addresses to connect to which serves as a small internal network. When you connect your router to that network, it does the same thing essentially stacking one network on top of another. Bridging the connection makes the modem just act as a connection bridge passin the connection along instead of actually managing a network of its own. By eliminating one network that your connection passes through, you can sometimes get a much more stable connection.

 

One down side is that you can no longer connect to the modem admin wirelessly once this is done since it is no longer handling connections. You have to physically connect a computer to it just as you would with a wired connection to change settings.

I would like to add for those that have the problem that your router is on one side of the house and your ps3 is too far away to receive a wireless signal or to string a long massive cable, there is a possible solution.

 

Google or search Amazon for the word "powerline adapter"

 

What a powerline adapter is, is a piece of hardware that uses the electrical powerlines in your home to connect a unit to the internet. You get a pair of adapters. Plug one into a electrical outlet near the router and connect them with an ethernet line. Then plug another powerline unit to another electrical outlet near your ps3 and connect them with a ethernet line.

 

viola! you should have a solid fast connection.

 

Powerline adapters usually cost about $50-100.

Never actually thought of turning off the Media Servers when Connecting to PS HOME... Thats a good Point... 

 

Does it really improve your Connection that much on PS HOME? Just wandering... 

 

Also, none of this really helps at all if it's your Console thats Screwed... Cause that i'm sure that requires money to get fixed, Smiley Sad 

 

Anyways, you forgot 1 Major Improvement to help Internet Connectivity on PS HOME... 

 

Safe Mode the PS3, & go under System File Restore, or whatever... 

It improves the PS3 Performance, & Load Times for both Networking, & Hard Drive Reading, as well as Refresh Rates... 

 

Just an idea...

i run my PS3 off a wired connection to the mobem and my computers thru the router, and my Playstation is still laggy, and crashes everytime i enter an event. PShome always comes up w/ error codes refferencing the server connection. I'm glad i dont pay for PSOnline activities or i'd be **bleep***d.
