Signal strength went from Good to Low


Either move the computer closer to the router or the router closer to the computer. You could also try connecting the usb adapter to a usb hub to remove any interference from the computer.

X cube gaming system in son's bedroom never has 4 bars. Is there a way to improve the signal?


Usually this is because the router further away. As long as it's connected to your own wireless internet, you can always move the router closer.
The router is the box that provides the wireless internet. Try relocating it to a closer position in the house.
Best of luck!

My ps3 takes 40 seconds to show friends on list then another 40 toopen text message very frustrating please help me


Unfortunately this has more to do with your internet connection then your PS3 hardware. There are two things you can try with very little investment in time and money. First, make sure your connection is good. If your using a wireless signal, be sure your PS3 is getting plenty of signal. If not, try moving it closer to your wireless router. If your using a wired connection, make sure all wires are plugged in correctly and securely, both into the PS3 and the router.

If your using a wireless connection, try switching to a wired connection. This can improve online features by a significant amount. A good Ethernet cord ( the type used by a PS3 to connect to a router) can be picked up at a good price at your local electronics store, or at a larger hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. Ask at the help desk and they can point you to the cords.

Taking very long to download patches and updates to my ps3 through my wireless internet. My internet signal strength says about 77-80 percent strength


Greetings,

The speed of your Ps3's download solely depends on your internet speed. If in fact your speed is 77-80%, then the downloads and updates tend to be slower than if your internet speed was 100%. To fix this, attempt to move either your ps3 or your wireless router closer together. This should increase the signal strength and allow faster downloads. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

My ps3 continues to lose internet conection to my wireless router. The router I am using is a belkin G plus mimo. it always happens about 5-10 minutes into a game (college football 09). My new internet...


there are many possible reasons and solutions for this
-sometimes the weather can block the signal to a router or PS3
-the closer the router is to your PS3 the better the signal
-try not to have a wall interfering with the signal to the ps3
-a computer in your house may have a signal that is interfering with the signal to your ps3
-maybe comcast just sucks?
-try using a wired connection

PS3 can't connected internet


make sure both ends of your cable is securely fashioned, and make sure there aren't any kinks or tight sqeezes within the wire. that could cause wires to split or fracture. if you have wireless... then try moving the router closer to your system so it can have better signal strength.

Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4


signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped
