      I Know EXACTLY what your going through & have the ONLY fix thats worked 100%

      1st, your fighting an unwinable war with your router.

      you first need to get your hands on a new/old router with wireless b, g + g&b, or N if you can afford it & if you prefer wireless, the Thomson speedtouch 585 v6 is tried & tested
      then find out your username & password using the tool somewhere in this forum.
      username & password in hand, put your new router in place of your black 1, put your info in, and enjoy uninterrupted broader bandwidthed playstationing. if you used to get 3mb/s max itll go near 7 after the swap.

      seriously you will NOT fix your connection issues as long as you use the black router, we have tried competatively for 2 days and could not fix it , a new router fixed it in 2 minutes and said router has not had a single connection drop since the ps3 signed in way over 5 hours ago now & its on wireless which makes it even more amazing

      The only way it would do this is if the router was faulty or the wiring to it, there is no way a different router would double sync speed on it's own.

      Wireless for gaming is pants, it creates lag and increases latency.

      Yes, I can sign in on the website.

      Again this is specific to my router/PS3 not being configured properly to use PSN network.

      A work colleague has suggested upgrading latest firmware and resetting all PS3 network settings.

      Does anyone know what the latest Sky DNS is also?

      Sorry I should have been clearer,
      there is No change in sync speed with the router swap. what was changed was the max download rate the ps3 seemed to peak at after the swap. just pointing out both g + g&b are the 2 least preffered channels for ps3 wirelessly. im on b right now

      and I know wireless has its drawbacks but not everyone who reads my fix will be on a wired connection


      Nitro
      i changed my router and set my ps3's primary dns to 208.67.222.222 and secondary is 208.67.220.220

      open dns which was working fine till a few days ago, and since swapping router has worked perfectly since

      As suggested in another thread, you could try changing the wireless mode of the router to 'g' only from g+b, which is the default for Sky routers. Some adapters do not like the mixed mode, it is only required if you are using an old 11mbps adapter, which few are.

      Sorry, evz's comment threw me off course.

      I have seen suggestions about putting the pS3 into DMZ mode in the router, being successful in some cases. I have no personal experience of this, maybe someone else who has could comment.

      Does anyone know where I can find the latest Sky firmware for my router...? It's the black one, I believe DG934G.

      What firmware do you have? If you have been online with it, it will be the latest, as they update automatically.

      7.03.01.66

      None of this has worked by the way. Can someone simply download their router config for me and I'll upload it and see if it works?
