So, towards the end of july I moved to a new place. Unfortunately I had to settle for a wireless connection instead of wired. I then set up my router for WPA2 security instead of WEP (the security I previously had everything else set up on the router, even my ps3 when I wasn't thinking about a wired connection a few years back). I'm supposed to be getting 30 mbps, although I expect some degradation through walls and doors. In the exact same room at the same time running a speedtest, my ps3 got 2 mbps down and .9 mbps up while my phone got 13 down 3.4 up. Can someone please explain why my ps3 is getting horrible speeds and how I can fix it?
Probably has something to do with QoS.
Thanks to Galadin for the awesome signatures
What's the brand of your router? Some have been reported to be "slow" or "poorly made".
If not, then it may be due to your router being overheated sometimes. Now if this is the case, I'd recommend using a small fan or maybe, if near one, a heat duct to cool it off.Originally Posted by the list of bad routers
Hope this helps.
I have a D-Link DIR-615.
You became a l'Cie, so now you're gonna marry this idiot? And you think I'm gonna buy that? Full points for originality. But, don't forget. If you really are a l'Cie, it's my job to deal with you.

All D-Link routers use the same DNS settings. Set your PS3 to "custom" setup, and change the Primary DNS to 192.168.0.1 instead of it being automatic.
You do not need the Secondary DNS for D-Link.
Change your key setting to WEP instead of WPA2 and put in your WEP key because it would be easier for a PS3 console to read something of lower security. PS3s find it a little more difficult to read WPA2 as it has more advanced security than the WEP and (sometimes) the console will find it hard to read.
Also forgot to mention that I've given my ps3 a static ip and dns and dmzed my router already. I may have port forwarded incorrectly.
