Lately I've been having internet connection problems on my PS3. I will try to join a game online and it connects but then a couple minutes later it tells me I have a bad connection. I've checked my signal and it is always 85% or higher. Anything I can do.

You may have a weak internet connection or the playstation network/ game servers may be down. Make sure you have updated your ps3 to rule out that possiblity. You may want to try going to settings>network settings> internet connection test. If you have a weak signal strength, you may want to try moving the modem closer/ point it closer to the ps3. My download speed shows 2.1Mbps and upload 647kbps which is fairly average and don't usually have a problem. I find that sometimes I cannot connect due to the time of day (too many users onlie at the same time in your area may slow down your internet speed), for this reason I always have more luck playing later at night or earlier in the morning which may or may not be an option for you. Hope this helps!
This means you've been signed out of the playstation network. A problem with your broadband, not your PS3. Check the connection of the ethernet cable from your router to the ps3. Then switch off at the mains both your ps3 and your router. Leave for 30 seconds then turn both back on. Wait till the blue lights on your router are all steady blue not flashing red or orange. Then turn on your PS3, go to network settings, then internet connection test. This will check your internet connection, and whether or not you're signed in to PSN, and also your internet download/upload speed. Hope this helps.
A lot of PS3's are getting errors lately... but I thought it had something to do with the newer updates. You are not connected to internet so that can't be the problem. Those waves might be caused by your sound/vision/stereo cables that connect your game system and TV. See if one of them is loose. (you know the ones that are white and blue and red or yellow and all that)
da problem is dat ur internet connection can sometimes get lost if it is not strong enough. dis happened 2 me sometimes so i moved my ps3 closer 2 the internet router and da internet connection was very strong. I hope dis helped =)
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.
some games on the ps3 requires a 1mbps of upload most of the games are at 512 mbps wich most internet services are locked at 512 its a problem out there for ps3 users the internet providers wont go over 512 due the their bandwith allocation! wich means if they double everybodys upload then they will run out of stream for uploads and downlads!
espacially when you play games with over 14 multiplayers the 1mbps becomes crucial!
so i suggest talking with the internet service and check online the game you refer for upload requirement donload shoulbefine!
First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings
Windows XP 1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections 2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath 3. Click Support 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Windows Vista 1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center 2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
