I have a PS3 and we have Comcast xfinity with the 50 mbps but my PS3 says on a connection test that it is only 25.5 mbps download connection speed and 6.6 connection speed and my on line game like Battlefield 4 seems to lag? What should my connection speed download be at. Everything else in my home like laptop my wireless tablet all seem to be at what is normal. Can anyone help me with this question.

Optimal speed is anything above 10mbps. I have Time warner 100mbps, but still only test out at 25mbps MAX. Make sure you are hard wired so you don't have signal interferance. I had a big issue with that while connected to wifi.

SOURCE: How to wire a ps3

Hey allisc,

In order to connect your PS3 to the internet, you will need one of two things: a hard-wired connection, or a wireless residential gateway. Please keep in mind that your options may be limited by the PS3 model that you own, and that a wireless connection is not possible with some models.

The most straight-forward type of connection you can make is a hard-wired connection - simply use an Ethernet cable to connect your PS3 directly to your residential gateway. By establishing a direct connection, the PS3 should not need any additional information in order to access the internet. The trade-off for the simplicity of a hard-wired connection is that the number of places you can physically place the PS3 itself are limited by the length of Ethernet cable used.

Should you wish to use a wireless connection instead, you will need to own a 40GB, 60GB or 80GB PS3 and a wireless residential gateway. The 20GB model unfortunately does not support wireless capabilities at this time. Please keep in mind that connecting wirelessly can often prove to be more complex than using a direct connection, as you not only need the name of your router, but information on any established security settings as well.

The most common security settings that may be in place are Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys and Media Access Control (MAC) filters. MAC filters are essentially a series of "blacklists" and "whitelists" that restrict network access based on hardware configuration. WPA keys however, are "passwords" that allow your computer or video game console to decipher a code used by residential gateways which prevent unauthorized users from using your personal internet connection.

Both forms of security may typically be set and changed by accessing the gateway directly through its default website. This default website can vary depending on the brand of the device, but many companies may use one of the two default addresses I've provided below:

192.168.0.1
or
192.168.1.1

Please keep in mind that in order to access the gateway's control panel you will need to have both the admin user name and password!

Once you have gotten access to your residential gateway's control panel, you should then be able to add the MAC address of your PS3 to the gateway’s MAC filters, as well as copy down any WPA key used by the network so that you may later enter it into your PS3's memory.

If you are still not sure how to proceed or do not feel comfortable doing any of this, I would strongly suggest contacting either your internet service provider (ISP) or a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: xbox 360 keeps blacking the screen out for about 1

Hi, your X-BOX is overheating. this will continue to progress. Read the following details below to combat this issue before it ruins the gpu.


Alternativly Overheating can be cause by the console locking up or "freezing" after a set amount of time. Lockups that occur at a specific point in a game are generally problems with the game itself and not caused by overheating.

THINGS TO TRY

  1. Let the Xbox 360 console cool.
    Note You may have to wait several hours for the console to cool enough. Do not turn on the console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that the console has sufficient ventilation and that the fan is operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section.
PREVENTION SUGGESTIONS
To try to prevent this problem, use the following precautions:
  • Do not block any ventilation openings on the Xbox 360 console.
  • Do not put the Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Do not put the Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well-ventilated.
  • Do not put the Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.
DO NOT EVER PUT YOUR CONSOLE IN THE FREEZER OR OUT IN COLD WEATHER
Some people think that doing this might help "fix" an overheating console, in fact doing so could cause even bigger problems. Electronic devices like your console are made to function at and around room temperature, extreme cold temperatures can often cause just as many problems as extreme warm temperatures (such as overheating). Also if the console is located in a dramatically cold area while running, the difference in temperature between the hot console and cold air can create condensation which in turn will short out your console making the situation far worse. Condensation will happen more quickly if your console is overheating due to the greater difference in temperature. In short... DON'T DO IT.

A more aggressive Solution to overheating is to improve the cooling system of the console. The best solution is to replace the thermal compound. If you attempt this you do so at your own risk. If you're console is still under warranty it is recommended that you contact MS for a replacement before attempting to fix it yourself.

How do i upgrade to78mb ?


Do you mean you are an Xfinity (Comcast) user?

Anyway, you might have some luck calling Comcast and asking them for a higher-bandwidth service, but really if you're connecting to your router over a wireless channel that will be your bottleneck since the 802.11g standard for wireless networking supports a maximum bandwidth of 54 Megabits per second (Mbps).

You may need to enable IPV6. All Comcast modem updates are done automatically. I would contact ARRIS for additional assistance. Comcast also has a helpful online community.
