Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Bad signal when playing game but 90-100% signal strength on PS3.

When playing in an online match my connection gets weak and I can't even host a match.  But when I quit out of the game and go to my connection status list my connection strength it is 100%. Can any one tell how to find the problem and fix the problem?  Also, no I can't go to a wired connection.

I can get my playstation network online with my hughes net HN9000 modem but it wont join any games.Is there anything you can do to get to play online with a ps3?


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!

When im playing online multiplayer with my friends i get kicked out... It says lost connection to the host but my internet signal strength is between 70 and 95 %.... I can not play one full game without it...


your wireless router is loosing enough packets to drop the connection. for a test try to use a cable to connect your ps3 and see if you still get kicked. if not then consider running a cable or replaing your router.

My PS3 won't allow me to join games with my friends but I can play in any other room online and I don't know why.


This is very uncommon. I would try to reset your modem.

Are you using wi fi? This could be your problem. If your signal strength isn't high enough, you will not be able to join the party, instead you will be matched with users with the same signal strength. Use th ethernet cable if you can. This should help. Good luck.

While playing madden online it disconnects. All different times of the game, of the day, and opponents


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Game disconnection has something to do with the quality of your internet connection. You might have bad ping or latency thus causing disconnection. Player hosts that you are playing with also has something to do with connectivity because they might have bad connections too. You might want to have your ISP check your internet connection stability. Also, if you are using WiFi... try getting better connection signal.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Just wanted to know is there any way to get my ps3 online


try opening a portal from you router to your ps3, the router will shut down all the things it need to in order to play your games more efficiently. If that doesn't work try hard wireing your ps3 to your router. If your getting online on your ps3 wirelessly then try moving your router or your ps3 closer together.

I had a linksys "g" router hooked up to a wireless desktop and a PS3. i got about a 65-75% signal strength on both.my online gaming was fine, but i would start the matches late and sometimes have a...


The lag could be because of a latency between your router and the gaming servers you are connecting to. Not a whole lot you can do about that.
FYI, signal strength of 65-75% isn't bad at all and shouldn't have a significant impact on your wireless performance. Keep in mind that your internet connection is usually the bottleneck for performance. If your wireless runs at 54Mbps with 100% signal strength, when you lose signal, it reduces the performance of your wireless. For example, if you were to get to 40% signal strength, your performance could be reduced to only 11Mbps. While that is a drastic drop for your local LAN performance, 11Mbps is still faster than the vast majority of internet providers currently have, so your in-game performance shouldn't change, based on less signal strength or less bandwidth.
As for your "N" router, if you have a 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz cordless phone in the location where you installed the router, there is a chance that it is conflicting with that frequency. Since you don't have that problem on your "G" router, I can only deduce that if this is the problem, you have a 5Ghz phone, since "G" operates only at 2.4Ghz. If you still have the "N" router, disconnect the phone, re-install the "N" router and see if that fixes your problem. If it does, then you may want to either stick to the "G" router anyway or upgrade your phone to the newer "wireless friendly" 6Ghz phones.

Ps3 online play of cod4 can connect to some players but others it says unable to connect to host.


This is due to the servers at Infinity Ward Games. Your PS3 is fine.
If the servers have a weak connection to a player that is host and you try to get into the same room, it will drop you and give you that message. Thanks.

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
