Ps3 network problem

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 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.

One morning i went on my playstation and it said error has ecoured you have been signed out of playstation network

The problem is due to a weak host.
There are two really easy ways to improve this, one is to use a different person as host.
If that does not work then turn off your router and leave for five minutes then turn back on will help improve your signal.
Try this and let me know if it has solved your problem.

Hope this helps.

I think this is caused from your new ps3 not having the connection to your wireless box, try inputting the wireless key(back of the wireless box) into your ps3 on Network Settings. Hope this helps.

PS3 - tv says no signal

You need to change the resolution output on your PS3 to match the capabilities of your TV. If your TV is not HD you can't leave the PS3's video output on HD. SCART is for european television connections. Have you tried using component cables? Have you tried changing your tv's source to Video 1 or Component 1 or HDMI or anything that might work? Good luck!!

Try out different sim card to check phone's proper function. Because the message "SIM CARD REGISTRATION FAILED" is due to network problem or sim card problem.

I'm getting a weak signal from my PS3 on my wireless network. My laptop works great on the wireless network. Advice?

Hi Samax,

I have noticed that Routers sometimes give a better signal to my neighbors than it does me in the next room. Try opening your router config screen, and setting its output to a lower DB.
