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 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.

The Playstation Network is down so you will not be able to get onto PS HOME. Do not worry it is not an issue with your system or internet connection.

Playstation Network was hacked so they are undergoing maintenance on their servers. There is no access to the PSN at all at this moment. Hope this was useful.

Foot peddle does not work with drum set

What drum kit are you using? If you are playing Rock Band 3, you may want to check the drum options to see if the Enable Hi-Hat option is selected and change it. This can cause problems with the pedal.
Also make sure you have the pedal plugged fully into the kit and that the rest of the pas on the kit are working.

I can't play rock band for my ps3

There should've been a patch released for that, but you gotta go to to accessory settings and reassign your rockband peripherals to any slots 1-4, if its 5-7 they wont work.

To play Rock Band without vocals?

Seriously you guys are hilarious, nobody's even given this guy a true and or correct answer. I too have had this problem and it's INFURIATING. Just trying to play the damn game: No you don't have to download anything


Enter Game mode/ Training mode whatever mode USING THAT INSTRUMENT. I repeat DO not use the controller (the xbox360 controller) unless you want to use the microphone. It makes sense the microphone has no control hence by default if your'e using the controller the game THINKS you want to play with the microphone.
