Slow patch download? Try this.

#1Hyo_EXEPosted 2/10/2011 10:38:05 AM
After 2 days of agony, I finally figured out a way to fix the Slow Download problem off the PSN that some people have been reporting. The solution is simple.

On your PS3, set up a new CUSTOM connection. Configure everything as it should be, and when you get to the DNS Server option, put MANUAL and input the following as your Primary and Secondary DNS servers:

Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:

Those are Google's DNS servers.

This FIXED my problem almost completely. Went from 5000 minutes left to download patch 1.05, to about 30 minutes total.

I hope this helps anyone still having problems.

I have AT&T (which seems to have a problem with SOE's servers) and this is the only solution that worked for me.

Thank you.

Thank you so much man, I thought I had to get my cable and have it wired everytime this game came out with an update. I'm sure its something to do with AT&T.

Staying on topic on a Gfaqs board is like Toronto making the rarely happens.

Is this... what exactly is this doing and should I be concerned?
Is there something about the way I type that makes it sound angry? Maybe it's just something about the way you read.

I am going to try this now, but just so you know it isn't just SoE servers, you will have the same problem with video downloads from the PSN (like Pulse). Here is a video.

This did not solve the problem for me, the speed MAYBE was a little faster, but my other downloads were having trouble and going slow as well and during the connection test the connection speed part failed.
