PS3 upload vs. download speed

June 25, 2010 at 10:52:39
Specs: Windows 7

Alright, I'm not quite the expert on all the devices but I'm having a different kind of problem with online gaming. My download speed on the PS3 is around 3-4 Mbps. Good. My upload is 600Kbps - 1 Mbps. It varies on the day and the way the wind blows. I'm hardwired to a Actiontec MI4124wr router with Verizon FIOS which is connected to a computer which gets 18Mbs download and 4-5 Mbs upload.
Problem: While playing first person shooters, my player is recieving data that he's been shot faster than a cat's meow BUT, the opponents barely know I'm shooting at them because of the disparity and Playstation network synchronization. HOW DO I BALANCE OUT THE DOWNLOAD AND UPLOAD data? Firmware is all up to date. Verizon FIOS represents know of NO way to restrict incoming data temporarily while gaming without restricting all other data. I've played with the PS3 network settings but the download speeds are ALWAYS way more than the upload.

Can someone offer some layman's help to easily address my problem? Playing online is like playing handicapped. I'm easily killed but I cannot kill the opponent in a reasonable fashion. I'm like a fragile piece of glass and they are teflon coated.

I've had the same issues.
I also have Fios and recently upgraded my service to 35/35
The NAT on the actiontec router sucks.Every once in a while
I have to do a reset to the router.There's a reset button on the
back of it .Hold it down for 10-15 seconds and it will reset in a few minutes. A word of warning though,you'll lose all your programed
settings like port forwarding,DMZ,settings etc. It resets it to its
default mode which is o.k. as long as no one else is relying on the previous settings.This also fixed my "downloading settings" message on cod4.
Here's the real trick that worked for me.
Use an Ethernet cable straight to your modem.
In the settings menu on the ps3 select manual settings, wired or wireless,what ever you are using.Select automatic for everything except when you get to DNS settings.When you get to yhe DNS settings enter 8888 8844 for your primary and secondary numbers respectively.Other DNS # are 4221 through 4226 These are public DNS # that work pretty well.I've tried some others but these seem to be the best.
The DNS # that PS3 provides absolutely suck!
I was getting 4-5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload.
It varies but on a good day I'm getting 30 Mbps/6 Mbps.
Never below 20/3. I wish I could get better upload speeds but I think that's just how the PS3 is.
Hope that helps.
