Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

My netgear router keepts losing the connection to my PS3 and my laptop. The laptop signal is picked up by a WG111 Wirelss adapter but it still loses the connection. My PS3 has days where it can be good but usually I will experience a lot of lag and connection interupted while playing online. It's no the internet connection as I used to have a D-Link router which worked fine. Is my router interfearing with my television as they are very close to eachother?

The main cause could be a setting on the Netgear router. Take a look in the networking section on the free ps3 repair guide http://www.ps3guide.info/networking-index

This should answer your question

You didn't mention which Netgear router you have. Customers of Netgear have reported problems with the WNR854R model. See Maximum PC April 2008.

I can log on to my wireless account and get online, but then it i lose the signal, and when i scan, it picks up signal stenght on 90 % but wont connect, I can hard wire it and i get online with no...


The problem lies in the wireless connection. Either the wireless adapter on the game console, or with your wireless router. Although wireless internet makes it easier to get online and play, it is actually the worst choice for online gaming. this is due to the lag time in the signal relay to the router. Wired internet is the best choice for online gaming. If you can hook your console up to a wired internet connection, then I suggest you do that.

I hav 100% connection when i'm playing my ps3 online but it drops


The router can build up a static discharge and you have to unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and plug back in.

Keep in mind, the more you have going through the router, the less bandwidth you will get.

-Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop)
-Linksys Wireless G/B Router
-G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and
-Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer

At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help?
-When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks

Laptop with broadband internet and router. how to connect PS3?


This is what you have to do:
First, disconnected the router form the PS3.
Connect the router to the incoming cable and setup from the laptop using the setup wizard.
Once you have connected to the IPS then disconnect the router, connected the PS3, then the router.
You should be able to connect to the Internet.
If you have any question related to this router, please consult your router hand book, or repost your question or e-mail me at frcs68@hotmail.com,
since this router has several feature, need to configure in order to secured the net work.

there are many possible reasons and solutions for this
-sometimes the weather can block the signal to a router or PS3
-the closer the router is to your PS3 the better the signal
-try not to have a wall interfering with the signal to the ps3
-a computer in your house may have a signal that is interfering with the signal to your ps3
-maybe comcast just sucks?
-try using a wired connection

PS3 - Wireless network problem


Check your bandwidth, you might not have sufficient speed to run the application, I got cable and the odd times I got booted too.

Just hooked up ps3 wirless , gaming is slow


if your PS3 is closer than 20 feet from your router, then its unlikely to be your signal strength.  However, Wireless connections tend to "poll" their connected hardware. What I mean by taht is.... The router sends out a signal, just to check and make sure all the peripherals are still there.  I dunno about PS3 yet, cos I havent tried to game online, but I am an avid PC online gamer, my pc is within 5 feet of my router and Ive switched back to LAN cable to play.  I was experiencing periodic "lag"... due to that polling effect.  Try using the LAN cable and see if that makes a difference ( I dont know how many Ethernet RJ45 connections a Netgear has, ... if it only has one, you may need to connect a "switch" )
