Neverending quest for Conection?....

11 replies 36 views Edited Oct 27, 2011

Bought the PS3 within the last year. And actually started playing online within the last year(Im slow to everything). Intially set connection up pretty much all automatic and it works fine for most everything includeing GTA4. Then Came Red Dead! I have tried almost everything with little success and actually sometimes worse. I have port forwarded. DMZed. UPnp enable/disable. Static IP.Nothing seems to work. I get booted from everyroom that has more then 3-4 players. Im running through a year old Netgear rangemax(not sure of model) thats about a year old was around $80 at Bestbuy. And I have true wireless internet(radio) no DSL or hardlines where I live. Ive scowered all the forums and videos on these issues and have tried just about everything. Running out of ideas. Any help appreciated???
