So, while I’ve been trying to optimize my connection quality for online fighting games, I’ve noticed that my PS3 (wired) is reporting half the download/upload speeds that my laptop is getting, and it’s ping and jitter is more than doubled. On my wireless laptop, I’m getting 30 down, 5.5 up, and 25 ms ping. Not bad numbers at all. Then, when I do the same test on my wired PS3, I’m getting 15 down, 3 up, and 73 ms ping. Not good numbers at all.
I’ve enabled DMZ for my PS3, which didn’t seem to make any difference at all in any of these numbers.
I’ve also tried setting up the PS3 on the same wireless connection as the laptop. This resulted in even worse numbers than the wired connection it was originally on.
So, the issue seems to lie somewhere with the PS3 itself. Has anyone else seen this? Does the PS3 somehow inherently have worse network performance than a PC?
