Have been using the above wireless router for around 6 weeks. Generally I am delighted with it (most of the time). It appears to work really well for the desktop PC - hardwired into ethernet port and also wireless for the good lady's laptop which is in kitchen / living area i.e a different room from the desktop.. The signal strength/condition whilst using the Dell laptop says "excellent".
The challenge comes when I connect into it using the PS3 which incidentally sits in the same room as the dell but on a further away wall and under a monster size TV. Probably another 4 metres from where the laptop normally gets used. Signal strength has never been more than 50% ish and recently its been dropping me from the network during online gaming. When I go back into the PS3 settings it easily connects again first time around and no more hassles for a bit. I rotated the PS3 90 degrees the other night and was looking at the screen and the signal strength was 100% ??? Haven't been able to do that again i.e back to between 45 and 50 and don't know if I was helping the signal strength at all...
There is also a cordless phone near the TV and about 2 metres from where the PS3 sits..Could that be an issue?
Q1. Why the 50% strength on PS3 . I reckon a total distance of 20 ish metres through 3 plasterboard walls from the dynalink. Didn't think this was too far. ?
Q2. Any ideas or things to try with the PS3 and the router...
Q3. Am I probably stuck with this unless I hardwire into another ethernet port..If so what cable do I use please?
Thanks so much to the knowledgable folk out there.
