I'm starting to get a little bit worried about my PS3. Fan can get pretty loud at times, and yesterday I put LOTR: War in the North in, and it didn't read it. I ejected it and put it back in and then it read it, but still, I'm a little worried.
What is more troublesome to me is recently I've had problems with what I'll call "stuttering". About once every 30 or so seconds, the game will just "stutter" (the frame rate pauses) for just a hair of a split second, but I can notice it. It's not gamebreaking, but annoying, nonetheless.
Is it time to salvage what I can and trade it in to Gamestop for a new one or should I keep playing it?
I have my Ps3 placed around 10-15 meters away from my router and it picks up around 50% signal strength, but it always fails to connect to the Playstation network saying it failed to obtain the IP address and other errors. I have tried setting my PS3 up closer to my router (unfortunately I can't keep it here) to test. The signal strength is 100% and I have no connection problems at all.
Most here would say that the problem is that my PS3 is too far away from my router, but I have been able to connect to neighbour's unsecured networks where the signal strength is even less then 50% with no probelms. Are there any solutions for my problem?
