|Im sure everyone here has heard about this before. I have searched for days trying to find a solution, but just cant.|
Before i begin, here is what i have:
belkin n1 router
laptop (wireless g)
Bassicly, the internet speed on my ps3 isnt all that sharp. When I download anything off of PSN, the speed is terrible. At this point, i was thinking yeah ok, maybe the psn network is beeing heavily used.
But to make sure it wasnt my internet connection, i went onto my laptop, and done a speed test. I got 1980kb/s download and 789kb/s upload.
Went onto the desktop, got the same results
I then went onto my ps3's web browser, and done a speed test. the result was 232kb/s download and 768kb/s upload.
I done this a number of times, all through the day. Result was always around 200kb/s download, and full speed upload.
I put the ps3 in dmz, disabled security, static ip's, setup everything! but still no diffrence.
So i thought maybe my ps3's wireless card is duff. so i cabled it up into my router. still the same poor speed. i even plugged the ps3 straight into my cable modem, but still no diffrence. i even setup a wireless sharing thing on my laptop. (internet>>router>>laptop>>ps3)
Still that same score around 200kb/s!
I have linux installed on my ps3, so i logged onto linux, and done the same speedtest a number of times.... 1897kb/s download, and 789kb/s upload. That was using a cabled connection into the router using dhcp. Done the same test, on linux, but using the built-in wireless, and got the same good speed as the cabled test on linux.
Can someone please tell me if i am doing something wrong. i feel like i have tried everything!
