      My fat ps3 has the same problem when connected wirelessly to my D-link router. However my slim ps3 which is sat right next to the fat ps3 has no problems connecting to the D-link router.

      Fat ps3 - wifi signal strength is 29-35%
      Slim ps3 - wifi signal strength is steady at about 90%

      Have you got the fat ps3?

      try changing the channel to No:11 and check. To change the channel go to internet explorer in the address bar type 192.168.0.1 and put (admin as username and sky as password) and select setup from the 1st option and change the channel to 11 and click on apply and logout from the page and check

      Channel 11 is no longer as good as it once was in every built up area around the country. It is better to suggest that a person uses inSSIDer to find the clearest WiFi channel out of 1, 6, 11 and 13.

      There are many other things which can also interfere with a WiFi signal, such as TV, Microwave oven, DECT phone, video senders, wireless speakers and many more devices that we now find in our homes.

      On channel 13 my slim upstairs shows 100% wireless strength using a D-Link. My phat in the room is wired.

      I used Wifi analyser on my phone to check the clearest channel in the room the PS3 is sat in and 1, 6 and 11 were packed.
