      Exclamation What the hell is up with my connection tonight..

      Trying to play MW2 and Black Ops on PS3 but I keep randomly dropping to one red bar? The odd thing is while i'm dancing in a circle from lag I can see everybody else running about normally !

      Wired connection btw, any ideas? Multiple resetting of router hasn't helped

      Nice try, I had a Xbox until it got RROD, it's nothing to do with PS3 servers it's my connection as I've already said

      What are your router stats like-

      Have you asked Sky to reduce your Delay or put you on a Gamer profile?

      The problem has got worse today, Pretty sure a Sky call center won't be able to help me with this because the internet works perfect on my laptop

      Your sync speed is about one third of what it should be, so something is wrong somewhere. Can you now plug into your Test socket using only the ADSL cable and filter supplied by Sky.
      How to test your ADSL in the Master Test Socket

      If you do not have an NTE5 socket, remove everything you have plugged into the phone line and plug in the router only, again using only the cable supplied by Sky.

      How many phone sockets do you have in total?
