      Wireless Signals On ps3

      I was if the wireless signals made a big impact on the gaming lag?

      I get around 82% signal rate, but surely this can be better can't it ?
      I have had 100% on a few occasions but now I get around 75% to 80%.

      The router is only in the next room to me.

      could it be tv interference ? or cordless phone interference ?

      whats the best place to place your router.

      also will sky give me a new router if I moan to them about how it affects my gaming experience with bad signals?

      add radio / microwave / dishwasher / christmas light and you can see that wireless is not all that good

      as your case is an isolated case i.e. it isnt affecting everyone, Sky wouldnt give you a new router. This is because you are able to get a connection, and a pretty good one at that. 80% is nothing to worry about, and as you say you have had 100% before. So it seems understandable that there is something interfering with the signal that Sky has no control over.
