PS-III Rock Band - Internet Load While Gaming

This inquiry is in regard to bandwidth load created by playing the PS-III version of Rock Band over the Internet. Our internet provider is http://radiowire.net/. Radiowire has set a bandwidth use limit switch at '400 connections per minute'. Not sure what that means... but here lately, the switch has triggered repeatedly. This effectively kills access to the Internet for our home. I am trying to find the cause of this load... considering all possibilities. I am wondering if the kids could be creating this load while playing Rock Band. Their PS-III is connected to our home LAN via WiFi. The WiFi is built into the PS-III and we use a Linksys WiFi unit in our home. FYI... security settings only allow designated MAC addresses to access the network. Any thoughts on this out there?

Yes, the problem is with the PS3.
When using the PS3, if possible, disconnect any computers and devices (PDA's, PSP's, Phones, etc) that are using the internet both Wireless and Wired.

This should minimize the connections being used.
Another tip is disabling the PS3's Network connection when NOT using the Online features of the PS3. The Ps3 does not have to be connected so that it could be played offline.

I have an xbox and a ps3 and my xbox has terrible connection to the wifi and my ps3 is connected to the router and has even worse connection thn my xbox! how do i improve my inteernet connection to my...


Sometimes when this happens to my PS3 or Xbox, I turn off my routers for at least 10 seconds then start back up again. Another way to rule out that it is indeed your gaming systems and not lag with your internet connection, I recommend that you run a bandwidth test from your PC first. This will give you an initial understanding of your internet performance. If your Bandwidth test returns a result of a slow connection, this will have a direct impact on your gaming experience. Here is a link to test your bandwidth (or internet connection speed.)

Click here for speed test.
Note: anything below 1mb on your download speed will cause your gaming experience to be poor.
I recommend 3+ meg for optimal performance.

I hope this information helps you.
Regards,
NIco

Unfortunately, the guitar that comes with the Guitar Hero does not work with Rock Band or Rock Band 2. Rock Band, as you mentioned, recognizes the Wiimote as the controller for the microphone.

Unfortunately, you will have to get a guitar that is specifically designed for Rock Band.

I know this isn't the answer that is popular, but if you vote for my solution, please vote at least "Thanks for Trying".

Thanks for using Fixya!

Will Not Open New Window


From above comments can i assume that at least Mozilla firefox version 2.0 & above is installed... if so than should not have any problems at all...i'm using firefox 3.0.7 is working just fine....

Problem could be with internet internet speed/bandwidth that you must be using....must be slow hence facing problems whilst downloading.opening either a new windows &/or Tab...

If bandwidth is OK....then just try reinstalling firefox along with the latest updates for that version...should work fine
warm regards,

Syncing with Rock Band.


From Harmonix spokesperson: "Support for the GHIII guitar peripherals in Rock Band on the Wii was not possible without Activision's permission. Therefore, any questions regarding lack of compatibility with GH III hardware should be directed to Activision."

Rock band won't play on my playstation2 slimline


We had the same problem, we even went and bought a whole new Rock Band. My husband turned our PS2 slimline on the side and it started working. I don't know why or how, I just know it worked for us. Give it a try and I hope it works for you also.
