So it's taking my ps3 over 45 minutes to download a 26mb patch for the PS store

Seriously, the download speeds are worse than dial up.

Meanwhile, my laptop is downloading at 1-2mb/s.
I have the PS3 on static IP, DMZ. My speeds before were off the charts, this only happened like 3-4 months ago.

The Internet Connection Test reveals download speeds at 4-5 mbps and Uploads at 800kbps, I go to the store, have to download this tiny 26mb patch and it is STUCK at 25%.

Well, not stuck, in random intervals, it just goes up by 5% almost instantly, like the speed probably goes from .5kbps to 100kbps for 1 second. I dunno what speed it's downloading at since I cant do it on the background.

I really wanted to ignore this, as it has been happening for a while now. I noticed that my friends list takes FOREVER to load including their avatars and trophy levels. It takes 5 minutes to open my inbox/sent msgs. It takes 5 minutes to go back in-game from the XMB whenever I visit the XMB while online. Everything online is worse than dial-up. And again, the most mind boggling fact is that my download speeds during the test are over 4 mbps.

Anyone have any ideas how to go around this? I can probably deal with it if it went like 100kb/s, but 1 hour for a measly 26mb patch? That's disgusting

I just download a 135 mb patch over my phone's 3G hotspot that took 40 mins. I feel pretty good right now.

I had the same issue, yet a 6 gb game takes less than an hour.

You need a better connection. It only took me like 7 minutes to connect and I have way faster speed then you just described.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

I know what you are talking about TC. PS3 download speeds are dreadful. Xbox is light years faster in this aspect. I know because I have them both connected wirelessly to the same router and the difference in speed is astounding.

@CGB_Spender
I have both wired and a 8gb game takes a hour on both. Keep track multiple times sometimes Xbox was 5 or 10 mins faster, sometimes the ps3 was alittle faster. They are within 10 mins of each other every time

I just went wired, and now downloading at 2mbps

No idea why the wireless was causing the problems. The computers we have here in the house downloads at 1+mbps using wireless.

I've opened the PS3 to fix the YLOD like 6 times, so I thought I might have messed up the wireless card, but I borrowed my friend's and it was the same. So it could be just the router I am using.

Or does anyone know the hardware that's related to the wireless component other than the wireless card itself?
