My solution that worked for me: I had this same problem until I set the security up on my router AND required mac addresses for any computer using my router...Haven't had a problem since... Hope I helped... But please know I am NOT an expert of any type!! But it's worth a try since it worked for me.

well, the signal, may be good, but if theirs a huge amount of people on the same acess point, things get messy. if u have alot of people using the same network, the internet becomes laggy, and even if u have a good signal, the internet can be very laggy, and lose connection alot, it depends on the amount of people using the same network, so at home u have only u and ur family connected, at school more people might be connected to the network than at home.
Why would you want to? Dial up is so terribly slow for just Internet browsing; I imagine for playing games online it'd be even worse (if it even lets you connect with such a slow connection).
That being said, you obviously can't direct connect dial up to the PS3. There isn't a port for that. Instead you'll have to do a work around involving a PC/laptop with a dial-up modem/port and an Ethernet port on it. You'll also need and Ethernet cable.
Basically the plan is to connect to dial up using your laptop/PC, then share the connection on it from the dial-up port to the Ethernet port. The PS3 would then connect to the Internet through your computer. Not ideal, but then again having only dial up isn't an ideal situation to begin with.
Here's some specific guides on the matter: http://www.instructables.com/id/PS3-On-Dialup/ http://www.ehow.com/how_6515109_play-ps3-online-broadband.html

Here's a link for sharing Internet connections on a Mac (if Mac's even have a dial-up port, I honestly don't know how old you'd have to go to get one with it): http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8156.html
Sometimes when this happens to my PS3 or Xbox, I turn off my routers for at least 10 seconds then start back up again. Another way to rule out that it is indeed your gaming systems and not lag with your internet connection, I recommend that you run a bandwidth test from your PC first. This will give you an initial understanding of your internet performance. If your Bandwidth test returns a result of a slow connection, this will have a direct impact on your gaming experience. Here is a link to test your bandwidth (or internet connection speed.)

Hi, It sounds like a thermal problem ie its heat related. As the unit warms up the problem gets worse and worse. The most common problem is a bad solder joint in the electronics circuit which drives your screen. When current flows thru the solder joint it heats up and expands, making the poor solder connection even worse. ie the solder gap gets bigger as it expands. An experienced repairer will use something like an pressurized can of freon (or a similar product) which is used to spray on suspect solder joints until the problem disappears. That soldered joint is then re-done. NOTE: working on live equipment should be left to an expert. If you aren't trained, don't do it! With the cheap price of monitors these days it may be cheaper to buy another. Compare the repair price to your loss of enjoyment or down time of your system. If the unit is still under warranty, call the manufacturer (is it a Dell unit?) Cheers, Steve
When you are home, you should hopefully have a secure wireless connection. When you are not home you willl need to change the access point so you can connect to a free wi-fi connection.
When you want to connect to a free wi-fi connection, do this:
Click Start, Settings, and choose Network Connections. Look at the possibilities for connection assuming your PC is within range and the wireless card picks up the signal. Choose from one of the connections - choose the fastest and best one you can find. NOTE that these connections are usually NOT secure and you should not share personal information or do any banking, credit card purchasing, etc on an unsecure connection. Chatting is ok, but still exercise caution....there are lots of bad guys out there who would love to meet you and steal your identity, banking information...or worse. Better safe than sorry.
When you get back home, you will have to change the connection type back again to your home network so you can re-connect there.
Please google "network magic" from cisco. Get it ... free for a limited time then they want $ or ... keep using the limited version for free.
I use the paid pro version to manage my network and I love it.
The program is easy to use and will perform all the functions you will need to stay on the WWW. Did I mention it is SIMPLE to use yet it is complete and comprehensive. It will help with wireless security too, if that is an issue.
You should have an RJ-45 cable connected from your ADSL modem to your router's internet RJ-45 plug then download network magic or similar software to input your user name and password on the router. this way you'll have internet even if your computer is turned off.
gucciskills, this is a common problem if you have other people using your home internet connection at the same time. I have that problem every now and then even with no one on the home PC. It just means you are losing your connection. Try and reconfigure your router setting and see if that helps.
