Re: desperate need to fix lag

When u do a internet connection test on your ps3 is the NAT type 1,2 or 3 . if it says NAT type 3 u may have to change your IP settings to a static IP .

I want to no how to fix the internet connection. It is very lagging and does our every minute

Not enough information are you using wireless internet connection via a wi fi router via a broadband connection like DSL or Cable. Your play station may be too far way from it to get a reliable signal. you may need a wi fi repeater or a direct ethernet cable from your router to your play station. I am testing out a powerline ethernet connection this is another way to connect ethernet. Direct 100 Mb/s cable is the best as wireless and powerlines is slower (note1). You may have a slow internet connection test it by goggling for " test download speed " .

(note 1) there is a faster wireless technology currently being sold but the game station would not be able to utilise it.

My ps3 freezes when i try to play online

Alexander, you left out some important info, so this is just guess work. Can you play games fine off line? If yes, then you are having a connection issue. First, WIRED? or WIFI? Connecting with the Wireless, will alwayes have a weaker signal, and lower bandwidth(mbps) Than if you are (HARD WIRED). Try using a CAT5 Ethernet cable and wiring directly into your ISP'S modem. When you do a speed test on the system, you are looking for around 10mbps or greater download speed. If you can't get at least 10mbps, then you will have system lags and hang-ups.

How do i connect my ps3 to the internet if i dont have wifi?

Your PS3 supports both wired and wireless. Heres how I have mine set up, Ive been running wired since day 1. 1st- hook your ps3 up to your modem or router with an ethernet cable. {im assuming ps3 is plugged into the tv, if not hook it up}
2- go in to your network setting on ps3.. If you start at the far left go over click and all the way down. You will see network settings. click on it and go down to the 3rd option there.. Internet connection settings. You will get a pop up that says your ps3 will be disconnected from the internet if you proceed, just hit ok. It usually automatically detects if you have the ethernet cable plugged in but just in case it doesnt go ahead and select wired. after that, just select auto for everything else. You will go through about 5 questions and it will be ready to do an internet connection test. All should be well.
If that doesnt work, make sure all the cables are plugged in and try again.If you are able to connect to the internet after that but get booted off, go back into network settings again and disable the media server. Hope that helps.. Happy Gaming

Trying to upgrade my ps3, with dial-up.

to do this you would need to enable your pc with ICS (Internet connection sharing) and connect an ethernet cable from your pc to ps3. You will need windows xp or vista to do this.

A tutorial can be found here

Should you need either a network card for your pc or ethernet cable these can be cheaply found on ebay.

However your PS3's connection to the internet will be dreadfully slow and will most likley have extremely bad lag when playing online.

My Gameplay is Jerky! Im not even playing online!

Hi Liam07,

Get a good quality DVD lens cleaning kit. Follow the direction on the lens cleaner disc carefully.
If this does not solve your problem, You probably hanve a heat related issue with the processors. All PS3 Consoles are showing up with dried up heat Transfer compound betwen the Processors and heat sinks. You will need to contact SONY at You will need your receipt and the Warranty sticker must be intact for Sony to exchange your PS3. I wish you the best of luck

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" )

"Lag" during play

Have you tried playing the game with the controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cable? Also, just as a test, DISABLE the Internet connection option on the PS3's menu to see if it makes any difference. I found that for some reason some titles (namely Enchanted Arms) have been know to act erratically with an active Internet connection whilst playing.

Internet connection

It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
