Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 and router

Our PS3 won't run fast enough on the wireless router (characters are jumpy), so I ran a hard line from router to PS3 (through the attic and down the walls) and hooked up that way to get full speed, but it won't work at all online with this hard line. Wireless it woks, but too slow. There seems to be an IP address problem - hard wired PS3 can't find one from the router.

Dsl modem = to 3 linksys wrt110 routers for wi-fi ?

What you are trying to do is a rather big job. Hire a company to connect the equipment properly. The headaches you save will be your own. If you install it, you will have to fix it everytime it goes out if you contract someone to install it and you buy a support contract when they install it, THEY get to come fix it and the headache is theirs, not yours. And NEVER install that type of router in an attic, they will overheat and fail very quickly.

If it only does it running on battery power, try adjusting your power saver option. You may also want to run a program like Malwarebytes (free) to make sure it isn't some spyware causing the problem.

Have you already setup the router? If so then you need to get the (WEP) password you had created. If not you might want to open up a browser window and in the url address window type in the following:

A username and password prompt will open and this is where you would place the password "admin" into the password area. Leave the username blank.

You then need to go into the settings and set you Security for the wireless portion. That key would be the one you will use when the psp ask for the password.

Hope that helps you out!

I want to make my house wireless compatable

Your wireless router should reach a max of 300 feet. Obviously, there is minimum distance as you are finding out.

You may want to try another wireless router in place of the one you are using.

You can put another device in the attic, but who is to say you will have any better success.

Things for you to consider: Wireless runs at 10, wire runs at 100 or 1000. Wire is secure, not subject to hacking.

If you put a wireless router in the attic, you will still have to run a wire from that device to your www connection.
I hope I have helped you with your problem. Post concerns or comments to this question if required
