I can get HD on netflix perfectly sometimes and other times the PS3 will flat out refuse to connect despite no changes to router or PS3 placement and with no interferences.

yeah and like hell im paying for a 2nd router or powerline kit. It's just sad to see sony always making mistakes that affect the enjoyment of their systems.

So it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't work?

Nice internet you got there man. It's not Sony's fault you have a crappy ISP.

yeah it's not the ISP or the router. My DS, PSP and sat receiver can pick it up all fine while the PS3 refuses to connect.


that said I knew PS3 had its connection issues long before I bought it black Friday 2011. i guess Sony needs to save money to save its sorry butt so they'll never software fix these sort of issues.

My PS3 connects fine, while my PSP and 360 do not 50% of the time, does this mean Microsoft is to blame?

Hardware either works or it doesn't, it doesn't choose to work for you sometimes and not at other times.

It's your ISP, not the hardware.

How would it be his ISP if it works with everything besides his PS3?

Yep because it's only hardware inside a PS3 or any game consoles. Never software.

What does software have to do with a hardware problem? Unless you are trying to suggest Wi-Fi is software...in which case you are lost.

It's your internet, not the system. If it was your system, it would either work or not work, not only sometimes, this is how electronics work.

Maybe you don't have the correct settings set up on your PS3/router, you should double check that, and enter the correct information manually if you have to.
