Poll: What Internet Connection?


Just curious about what kind of internet connections all of you are using. A friend of mine couldn’t get WPA TKIP to work. Is there anybody out there using that? So here’s the question:

What internet connection are you using for your PS3?

  1. Wired
  2. WEP
  3. WPA-PSK (TKIP)
  4. WPA-PSK (AES)
  5. Not online

    Hm… I have both.

    Our house has 3 stories, which all indepedently all have their own WiFi APs, but most Desktop PCs here have a Wired connection (100 to 1000 mbits, depends, my pcs both have Gigabit).

    My network is not crypted, but there is a MAC filter involved, (If I did crypt, I wouldnt be able to use my (open firmware) PSP on the net, yet) which drops all not known clients.

    My Internet “officially” is 6mbits down and 384kbits up. But I only get 3mbits down, because my town is “too small” sort of.

    My network is being managed by a Linksys WRT54GL router, with OpenWrt installed (Linux open source firmware), which works great!

    I just got a Netgear WGT624(today-and its great) and am currently using WPA-PSK TKIP. I am on my ps3 right now typing this. So far no problems and hope it stays that way.

    I just have everything nice and simple (wired). It seems like you need a fairly expensive Wireless router to keep the signal strength strong across the house. You also have to worry about encrypting the access so nobody can use your internet.

    I have a wired connection through a router. It works ok. One thing is that when i do an internet connection test, the NAT Type says Type 3 which limits your chat ability and for me it also causes massive glitch whenever playing Resistance online. The more people in a game, the more glitch. It really sucks to. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

    Go to portforward.com set up a Static IP address, Forward Ports. It worked for me.
