      Question PS3 speeds slow, but pc is fine!!

      Hi all, just got a ps3 and gave it a static ip address and opened at all the ports suggested on various sites. The nat type on modern warfare is reading as open. The problem is that the speed test is only saying 5meg, even though the router is saying 15.5mg and the pc speed test still gets about 14mg. How do i get the speed on the ps3 up? really confused
      oh its a netgear DG385gt router

      I guess you are using the inbuilt ps3 wireless ? If so you could try different wireless channels to see if any give better results. Alternatively an ethernet cable to the ps3, wires will alway be better than wireless.

      Tried a different ethernet cable, still the same speed. would putting the ps3 in dmz make any difference to the speed or is that just to unrestrict ports etc?

      You could try DMZ, you can always swap it back if it does not work. I have read that the PS speedtester is not too accurate, have you tested it on an actual download?

      I'm surprised by the lack of response from my fellow members, in the past ive had tons of help and always sorted my problems. Nobody got any ideas please?

      Try an actual download, as I said before the PS tester is not always accurate.

      Have a look at this thread, the guy seems to have cracked it.
