You need to go to the port connection setting on the control panel, which is in the start menu. From there go to network connection, and see if everyhings connected. if that doesn't work click on my computer and scroll down to see if you can find it in the menu.

Numerous problems with lagging,thrown out of gaming lobbies on live gaming etc.

I would first check you network. This sounds like weak internet signal or not enough bandwidth. Most common problem is the wireless routers people put in. A 1 gig is what you should have installed. Now this will help but you also need to check how many devices are drawing internet at the same time. To give your devices priority you will need what is called a "managed switch". This would allow you to give priority bandwidth to one device while limiting other devices ability to draw down speed.

My PS3 connection isn't working very well. Please help me!

If you found speeds that low,do a speed test on something else in the same area of the house(laptop) with the same site simultaneously.If you don't get a similar know it's the PS3.If you do get a similar esult,retest the laptop closer to the router.If the laptop is now OK,then you've got some interference somewhere.If this is where your diagosis took you,consider running an Ethernet line from the router to the PS3.If the PS3's Wi-Fi is the trouble,you can get an Ethernet adapter that will run through your coax wiring to the router from Verizon(called a NIM-Network Interface Module).This would be a great option if you have a coax outlet where the PS3 is.Try running the PS3 with an Ethernet cord first to make sure it's just a Wi-Fi issue in the PS3 and not something that is affecting both.

Xbox 360 slim offline lag

Hi dinobots,

Do you use Wi-Fi or an ethernet cable? If you are experiencing severe lag, it could be a problem with your actual internet connection and not necessarily your XBox 360.

I would purchase an ethernet cable (they run about $10 over here in the states) and try that out before anything else

I can get my playstation network online with my hughes net HN9000 modem but it wont join any games.Is there anything you can do to get to play online with a ps3?

You may have a weak internet connection or the playstation network/ game servers may be down. Make sure you have updated your ps3 to rule out that possiblity. You may want to try going to settings>network settings> internet connection test. If you have a weak signal strength, you may want to try moving the modem closer/ point it closer to the ps3. My download speed shows 2.1Mbps and upload 647kbps which is fairly average and don't usually have a problem. I find that sometimes I cannot connect due to the time of day (too many users onlie at the same time in your area may slow down your internet speed), for this reason I always have more luck playing later at night or earlier in the morning which may or may not be an option for you. Hope this helps!

Red light flashing and ps3 then turning off. Now when turning on ps3 the red light just flashes and will not do anyting.

Hi there,

I did a bit of research for you. You can try one of these:
1- Check for loose cables, or un-plug them and plug them back in.
2- Restart Your Console 3 times after letting it cool down.
3- Take out your hard drive, and put it back in. (If this seems complicated to you, try the guide I mentioned earlier.)
Beyond that, it's a problem with your HDD overheating. If you can't cool it off, you need to call Sony at 1-800-345-7669.
