I had extreme 20 mbps connection and a few weeks ago the ps3 became to laggy to play and as of today still cant download shangri la without errors, I thought maybe I should upgrade to broadband 50mbps to fix the issue but it still is the same, I called playstation troubleshot everything with them, even deleted all my ps3 friends and reset the machine back to factory defaults, so I said screw ps3 and bought black ops for my 360 it let me download shangri la but lags like hell. The cable guy was here today and put all new connections in other than the line down(I am in an apartment) I have hooked the ethernet cable direct to the modem, everything is on a cable and all my cables hvae been checked aswell, The speedtest on shaw.ca says im getting like 28mbps 2.3-5 upload mbps, the ps3 on test connection says 7.0 1-2 upload, searched speedtest in its browser it says 1.73 download mbps 2.33 upload mbps. The connection when its running seems fine but every few minutes there is a lag spike that I notice on the computers aswell, I have tried everything I can think of, I called Sasktel and am gonna switch to the phone company maybe all new **** will help and its a dedicated line of 25mbps. The cable guy said his computer tech got him to download a bunch of stuff from a bunch of sites on his laptop from a dos looking screen and he said i was getting 50mbps all the way. Is there a 10 or 15min speedtest i could find? Why would my connection all the sudden start to suck? the girlfriends ex is a computer programmer is there any way he could mess with my connection without the cable company finding it lol? is there a way to make my ps3 use more bandwidth? So in revision this is everything i tried in somewhat of an order.
