    I'm really getting cheesed off with my router. My room's upstairs, and the router's downstairs,but in perspective they're only a short distance apart. And although the wireless signal does have to go through a couple of walls, my laptop receives the signal fine, yet, my PS3 gets nothing.

    I don't know what's wrong, it's worked perfectly before, but recently it's been glitchy. I've tried rebooting the router and all that, I don't think there's anything wrong with my PS3 (It still plays fine, just doesn't go online easily) and it's still not connecting properly. The other day my PS3 managed to connect okay, but with limited signal strength, so the game was lagging a bit.

    Can anyone help me? My router is the default Sky Broadband one (Netgear).

    Wireless sucks baws, I only use it on my laptop as I move around a lot with it (you know... use it in the kitchen, living room, in bed, on the toilet... hahaha). I recommend running ethernet cables to anything that stays in a fixed position. We all have them running to our PCs. The router is on the top floor of a 3-storey house, one of my housemates is on the bottom floor, and still went to the hassle of running a long cable all the way down there because wireless is so unreliable and slow. I'd run one to a games console too, mainly for reliability. No fun playing something online and having it cut out because of a dodgy wireless signal.
