How do I boost wireless signal for ps3? - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Here's an option: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833156300

There are lots of options. But if you're doing this for a ps3, there's just no reason whatsoever to do wireless. Powerline is simple. Plug it in on it's own eletrical socket. Run an internet cord to an option port in your router. On the ps3 side, plug in the powerline adapter in it's own electrical socket, then run your internet cord to the ps3.

Yeah. Electrical lines in your house can carry a data signal. It just doesn't ahve the bandwidth of a CAT5 cable.

Here's my question:

Does your router have a physical antenna, and if so, have you tried building a cantenna for it?

Definitely moving the PS3 And router closer to each other would be your best bet.

If that isn't option, you could try making a couple of these for your router.

There really easy to make. I made a couple for my router and have noticed an increase in signal.

Its not an amazing increase by any means but its better then nothing.

Hard wired is not an option.
all PS3's come with 802.11G wifi which is crap compared to its LAN which is 1gbit. There is one company who has made a 802.11N usb adaptor for the PS3 which will help with signal and speed. I think the company was called madcatz? just google it and should find it. And pricing was about $80AU last time i checked.

I built two of those for my Linksys and it really helped getting a better signal overall for all the devices in my house. Depending what kind of obstacles are between the router and your console, the results may vary, but that's by far the cheapest option. If it doesn't work then go for the powerline!

Sorry for the late response, I had some guests.

Anyway awesome, could I connect a 2nd router to the other end? or will that wont work?

Because above my PS3 is another room that doesn't get great signal, but if I have a 2nd router there I would have my entire house with strong signal!

EDIT: Also, does it have to be connected directly to a outlet? or is it ok to be connected to a extension?

I don't know if two routers can work together [not a networking nut quite yet] but I know that a switch will do what you're thinking of, I just don't know if they make wireless switches.

It needs to be directly in a separate outlet from what I remember. If it works on an extension cord, it won't work as well.

If you have another computer, you can get a set with two adapters, or buy an additional adapter. I believe this might be one with two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833181122

Go into your routers settings via your pc by typing the routers ip in your browser, some routers have an option to boost the wireless signal.

make sure you are not competing with other wifis on the same channel, i think DDWRT has a "wireless survey" tool

increase TX/RX power gain in DD-WRT (google it)
