    Generally, PS3 seems to suck on wireless, mine gets a weak signal and is really slow on downloads. I have the original 60Gb, maybe the newer ones are better.

    Everytime i check my Internet Connection Test is signs me out of the PSN but still tried to run the test. First half dozen times it failed before it got to the Nat, but when it did complete it the one time it says i have a Type 2 with an download of 1.8mbps and upload of 794.3kbps. Having it a type2 means my router is good?

    edit; a windows bubble now keeps poppin up saying there is an IP conflict between another system on the network. Anyway to fix that?

    Assuming your router is doing DHCP this should not happen. I wonder if it could be someone else's gear?

    This looks insane!! Almost worth buying a PS3 for this alone. The Wii is going to have a hard time competing with this, they're technology seems more advanced than the Wii already. NUTS!

    ^ out on the 17th of September. I believe it's goign to be around 65-$70 to buy. They're also releasing sports packs with it like they did with the Wii.

    It's normal for it to sign you out for the test. Type 2 means you're good.

    If you have an IP conflict, check what else is on your network, something is using that address, which it shouldn't if you're on DHCP.

    Yeah I'll be getting it, there's quite a few neat things coming for it.

    My favorite is this one:



    It's a long way's away, but that looks like a lot of fun.
