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.

verify your signal strenght (its recomended to be about 60 per cent), and your internet connection - maybe its oscilating and causing the connection drops.

Wireless connection


First thing to check is if there is a firmware upgrade for your router.

Afterwards and depending on your model, you can also increase the signal power on your router.

Or you can try changing the channel from 1-11 to see which one works best.

You can also:

move the PS3 or router closer together
use a wired connection
get a stronger router
etc.etc.

Hope this helps.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

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.
