Two days ago I purchased a new router (Dualband Wireless N750 Modem Router, Model: DSL-2870B) the router works great and gives a strong wireless signal to my laptop and quick internet speed. Both my PS3 and xbox one which are in my room next to my laptop about 15 feet away from router they receives a 97-100% but the internet on them both becomes extremely slow, like it takes a good minute to sign in and 5-10 minutes to find a call of duty online match.

When I had my previous modem (iiNet BoB wireless modem) everything worked fine on the PS3 and xbox one I almost instantly find a match and no lag,

I really don't thinks its the consoles fault, its router it self! the problem may be with its firewall, DNS, QoS, (router has no static IP), DHCP, I tried DMZ but no help.

Router Manual:

I'm happy to post more current router settings if helps

hi ilovearty.

Is uPnP enabled on your router? This allows devices to make changes to the router such as open ports it needs to go out on etc.

the xbox and PS3 will need to go out and come on on specific ports.

i think you'll find that you'll need to do some port forwarding on your router to enable your devices to work better as I imagine you possible have strict/moderate NAT.

here are the ports needed for xbox live to work correctly:

Here are the ports needed for the PS3:

for information on how to port forward there are generally in the firewall settings of the router. you will need to log in to your router. See your router guide.

UpnP is enabled and so is UpnP AV. THe interesting thing is that Port Forwarding is unavailable its like it dissapeared only port triggering is available. Maybe I got something dissabled?

Port forwarding/triggered are practically the same thing. You will need to setup port triggering so that they point to your consoles.

Pardon the interuption,

Something else to look at is the band of wireless. Go to G if you are connecting on N.

Sorry to interupt.

Not sure internal network speed will affect internet speed much.

Considering, the Ps3 doesnt even support N connection, it would matter, sir.

Have fun!

[The band is actually the freq in which the carrier is operating at. In such as case, the G band OR IEEE NETWORKING STANDARD 802.11g G uses the 2.4 GHz. N uses both 2.4 and 5GHz.]

If you wish, let me know; I can break down the relationship of the carrier to the data, and how they are combined, dependant upon the media of transmission.

After reading the link for the router, it has administration for N client only, what is that set to, under advanced wireless?


Didn't find the answer you are looking for?
