Hi. If there are no walls or any kind of interference that is blocking the router to send wireless signal to your PS3 then this could be a wireless adapter problem on your PS3. By the way, is the PS3 sits beside the router?

What you should do is you should buy an Ethernet cable from a shop a shop like staples. Basically what this is is that it is a wire that you have to connect from you console to your modem, which will give you good internet connection and will hopefully work.

On my ps3 its says 100% singnal straght and i am 1 bar please help!


The bar represents your ping, aka how fast the connection is between you and the server. It is not determined by your signal strength and it is good if it is low because it means you wont have a slow game.

Taking very long to download patches and updates to my ps3 through my wireless internet. My internet signal strength says about 77-80 percent strength


Greetings,

The speed of your Ps3's download solely depends on your internet speed. If in fact your speed is 77-80%, then the downloads and updates tend to be slower than if your internet speed was 100%. To fix this, attempt to move either your ps3 or your wireless router closer together. This should increase the signal strength and allow faster downloads. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

How to boost wireless signal on ps3


If you are talking the wireless for the controllers they use bluetooth and the signal strength is dependent on how much interference there is around you. If you are speaking of the wifi capability for the network connection you cannot increase the strength of the signal from the PS3 it needs to be done with the wireless access point.

Signal strength bad between PS3 & D-LINK DIR-655 Wireless Router


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.

I had a linksys "g" router hooked up to a wireless desktop and a PS3. i got about a 65-75% signal strength on both.my online gaming was fine, but i would start the matches late and sometimes have a...


The lag could be because of a latency between your router and the gaming servers you are connecting to. Not a whole lot you can do about that.
FYI, signal strength of 65-75% isn't bad at all and shouldn't have a significant impact on your wireless performance. Keep in mind that your internet connection is usually the bottleneck for performance. If your wireless runs at 54Mbps with 100% signal strength, when you lose signal, it reduces the performance of your wireless. For example, if you were to get to 40% signal strength, your performance could be reduced to only 11Mbps. While that is a drastic drop for your local LAN performance, 11Mbps is still faster than the vast majority of internet providers currently have, so your in-game performance shouldn't change, based on less signal strength or less bandwidth.
As for your "N" router, if you have a 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz cordless phone in the location where you installed the router, there is a chance that it is conflicting with that frequency. Since you don't have that problem on your "G" router, I can only deduce that if this is the problem, you have a 5Ghz phone, since "G" operates only at 2.4Ghz. If you still have the "N" router, disconnect the phone, re-install the "N" router and see if that fixes your problem. If it does, then you may want to either stick to the "G" router anyway or upgrade your phone to the newer "wireless friendly" 6Ghz phones.
