[Answered] PS3 Wi-fi Angle?
It seems that my playstation always receives a different signal strength depending on where I "point" it. having it lying down flat and about 45 degrees from my router has the poorest signal at about 45%, yet having it upright has a slightly higher signal but it varies between 50-65%.
If anyone has good knowledge with wifi or how the playstation broadcasts and receives wifi, can you please give me an ideal direction it should be pointing in (eg. back of the console facing router, or Side with PLAYSTATION 3 written facing router).
I have fairly slow broadband and my connection and the connection is as reliable as an old skoda, which doesn't help. Playstation updates can take up to 3 hours because off loss of signal and slow Internet speed.
PS. I should also mention that my laptop sits in the same room as my ps3 and gets about 85-100% signal and there is no way to move the router as it is wired to another computer
wifi connection can be dependant on a number of variables, one of which being th distance from the router and how many/how thick the walls are too.
i tend to keep my ps3 lay face down, with (what would be the bottom of the ps3 if it was stood up right) facing the wall which the router is behind, and that gives 100% signal.
Im sure there are some tuts on here for increasing the signal strength, but you'll have to search for them
a slow connection shouldn't mean that you recieve a bad signal.
the best advice i can give you is to try your ps3 in all different kinds of positions until you find a reasonable signal, and if absolutely all else fails... buy an extremely long ethernet cable
