try wired and see if you experience better gameplay. If so, then the quality of your wireless signal isn't all that "good".

that seems kinda low. i don't like to be under 8 meg down/2 meg up, personally. you might want to look into either a better wireless router, or using wired connection

The built in speed test is far from accurate. At least for me it is. I have a 20/2 connection and the PS3 always says something less than half of that. I try speakeasy.net/speedtest and it gives me my correct speed.

oh, I know it's not accurate. But if I get a reading from the test of under 8 down and 2 up, it's time to reconfigure. those are just the numbers I came up with for myself from playing around. either way, I'd say his router needs to be reconfiged. or replaced. or hardwired. sounds like a slow connection. 

Edit: Hooray! My 50th post! and it only took me 8 years...

Oh ok. Because i get speeds in the kbps all the time and I'm using a wired gigabit connection to my router which also has a gigabit connection to my modem. I hate that meter
