Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
I have used the Linksys WRT54GS to hook wirelessly to my PS3 and I got about 25-40% signal strength. I recently bought a new D-Link DIR-655 and I now get anywhere from 10-30% signal strength. Is there something wrong with my d-link router? I have this setup: WPA2-PSK, fixed channel 11, mixed mode g/n/b, 20MHz channel width. Why is it so fast and have so much range (it seems like) for all my computers and phones, but not the playstation? Please help!
I have the exact problem and have searched over 100 sites now. Nobody seems to have a clue.

Things to try:
1. Swapping the router from mixed mode to G only.
2. Raise up the wireless router higher in the room.
3. Move the router closer to the ps3 or the ps3 closer to it.
4. Run ethernet cable to the ps3 from the router. (clunky but 1ms ping times to the router does make seem worth it.)
5. Put the ole warhorse of a linksys back in and hope for store credit on the dlink. As it seems to have been working for you.
To answer your question:
Currently most things have built in G class wireless antennas. As such they prefer G and the N router eats into the G's spectrum. Not bad but some bleeding of channels is just going to happen and as such N class things will love the N router but the G class have to suffer a bit.

Most likely it is the antenna for the router. Try changing the position or location of the router. The slightest twist or tilt of the router will affect the reception. A little bit of messing with it may improve your signal. Obviously the closer you can get it to your ps3 the better.
