Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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.
