Is it better to have a wired or wireless internet connection on the PS3? When I say better i mean faster connection and less lag also my 3 computers are hooked up on wireless internet and mostly only 1 is on and download stuff so i was wondering would it be better to have wired internet on the PS3?
Dude have a wireless connection since launch and rarely do I ever get a lost connection mabe three or four times ever play online all the time but would have to say wired because its commen sense direct would be more realable.
wireless goes up to 54 mbps while wired goes to 100 mbps but most of the time there won't be any difference unless you download the demos and stuff then wired is faster, but you'll hardly get any lag on wireless
My router for my ps3 was on the older side of my home giving me a horrible connection. I now have my ps3 connected to my notebook with a shared connection and PSN is much faster. From my experience, I think wired is a lot better but wireless is about the same if your router is right next to the ps3.
Wired is always better although I have no problem using a wireless network for the PS3 and laptops at the same time. Sometimes playing around with where the router is placed helps a lot as well even at a distance. I found that having the router about 6 feet off the floor and slightly away from the main PC and DSL modem even helps a little bit.
I play wireless and everything connects just fine. As long as your router isn't screwed up (many are), and you have a good quality signal with no interference then you're good to go. My ps3 is wire-free and lag-free.
it kinda depends on the situation. say your ps3 is in the basement and your router is a one floor up...would you want to run ethernet cables that long? but if your ps3 is right near your computer than by all means go with wired.
of course if your ps3 is far away from the router in your home but you still want to go wired, you could always get ethernet over powerline equipment. its like having a wired connection without running ethernet cables throughout your home.
Wired is more reliable, but wireless is better because there is less of a hassle to set things up. I use wireless, since I have several computers in my house. I have no problems whatsoever. No disconnecting at all. Go with wireless my friend. It will be better for you in the long run.
