Re: PlayStation 3 Networking and Connection Quality FAQ

Awesome job on this thread P!

I get so tired of all the "PSN is too slow" complainers, and then having to try and explain the issue is almost always going to be with their own network, not Sony's.  I'm sure I'll be sharing links to your thread from now on.

Sony's PlayStation Home updated mission statement...


"Like it never happened"


- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -

The PS3 also supports the 802.11b standard too, not sure if you accidentally left that out, but I know that quite a few people still use wireless b routers (unfortunately).

I double-checked my blurb about PS3 wireless support, and saw that I already mentioned a wireless access point needs to be set to b or g mode to connect to the PS3. I updated it to reflect backwards compatibility for wireless b as part of the 802.11g spec in case it was confusing for other readers.

Thanks.

Ok, just checking. They really need to add dual-band wireless N support

I am using a arris router from time warner.I have it hooked into a 5 port ethernet switch from netgear.I am running a wired connection in one port for my computer and another for my ps3(my new one..old one got traded in).

I keep getting can not obtain a isp message when trying to get online.I did unplug the router and the ethernet 5 port switch and let it rest and then plugged them back in.I also did restart my ps3.Plus i would also like to get access to my orginial account(i do have the orginial email and password).

Any help would be appreciated.

Is there a model number on that Arris router? It's odd that you would need a five port ethernet switch to split the connection from it, since routers or gateways usually have four ethernet ports on them.

I remember now. I had that same device when I had phone and internet from the cable company. It's not a router -- it's a modem. You should buy a router and use it in place of your ethernet switch.
