Hello PS3 Community hope everyone is having a great holiday season. Well i have been having this problem for awhile now when i sometimes be playing black ops or any other online game it says i have 1 bar and i lag really bad but yet when i go to check internet status it says 100% and my internet speed download is usually around 1mb can it be something wrong with the ps3 if so i will return it and get another one. Thanks and hope everyone has a great and safe new year!!!

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...
