Logging in to psn problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I wanted to know your guys professional experience with this. Right now I am sitting in the basement of my grandparents house built in the 50s. The wifi router is around 50 feet away on the opposite side of the house on the floor above me.

Currently my signal strength is 15%

It seems I can never get on. I always have an issue or code pop up stating it's my dns or restart router and modem...etc

I never had problems with this router before I moved into my grandparents basement...which leads me to believe it is a weak signal problem?

Am I right?

Just FYI. I am using a belkin memo g router...I am upgrading to an n router...will that help fix the problem or am I sol?

Yep it's an interfence issue. Just to much distance and wall in between you. Honestly surprised you are even getting any sort of signal at all.

Upgrading to a wireless n router should help, however I can't recall if the PS3 actually has wireless N, if it doesn't then a new router won't help to much unless it's a higher end one that has some nice signal range. Also get a dual band router.

And another thing. Spending $200 on a router/modem is worth it. If you have more then 5 machines connected in the house and like to stream. It's at the center of it all. Don't hold back on the center of your network.

If someone walks between the router and your PS3, your signal will drop to 0. I'd move the router or get a more powerful one.
