Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi ive got a problem my ps3 network its about the signal, i think. I phoned sony a while a go and they said to improve your signal put ps3 on its side but this made no difference at that time my signal was about 50%. I then got the best router you can get recently , Bt n1 vision wireless modem router and my signal is usually 70% but at worse 50 and best 85.
However despite this my ps3 is inconsistance and usually times out, lags and never loads a nazi zombie game and sometimes takes ages to load. it also does wierd things like at 87 % signal its not good gameplay and loading and 45 it is. I am getting seriously fed up as im probally the only kid that bought there only 32"tv, router + ps3 with paper round money, and not a lazy sod that got there parents to buy it at christmas.
Sorrt this took a long time to read but i'd be greatfull 4 any help and advice my email is firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers!
You will not like the best solution to this problem... But here it is... you should go hardwired.
If you absolutely cannot there are some things you should check....
1) is your ps3 out in the open where the signal will be the strongest ?
2) do you have a cordless phone in the house and what frequency does it operate on ? Check this against the frequency of your wireless router and see if there is interference.
3) what channel is your wireless router broadcasting on... you may be getting interference with neighboring routers. Try changing the channel and if it is auto, try setting it to an unpopular channel #.
4) there are also signal strengtheners, repeaters, high gain antennas available but I would check all that first.
Hope this helps.
