Playstation Network Bandwidth Shaping?

5 replies 101 views Edited Dec 30, 2010

I'm on a 12m DSL line through Qwest Internet in the northwest. When connected directly to the modem on my laptop (via ethernet), I get excellent results at SpeedTest.net (12 down/1 up). When I perform this test on my PS3, they results are cut in half, usually 6down/.500up. I've tried setting up the DMZ Host, but that didn't help. Port forwarding didn't help either. Any ideas? Does the Playstation Network have max speeds? Please help!

I Think it maybe because of your ISP, if not has to with the wi-fi or your Etherent port i have noticed this as well but when i switched to a Ethernet cable my results were much higher.

Hey thanks for your response. I don't think it is the ISP, I just switched over to Qwest, and for a few days have had two internet connections. The previous connection did this as well. I have removed all wireless routers from the equation, my PS3 plugs directly into the DSL Modem. I've done this with the Cable Modem I used to have as well. Results never really seem to improve.This leads me to believe that it is my PS3. Thoughts? Anybody?

Don't believe what the PS3 speedtest tells you. There is a disclaimer that pretty much tells you that it is useless.

And Hishi115 the script in your sig is screwing up the forums.
