It's really difficult to say as it depends on so many other different factors as well. At first glance your download speed look acceptable, but upload speed is pretty low and your ping is fairly high as well which will both have an impact. There's also the issue of contention, which may see your broadband speeds rise\fall depending on how many other ...

Just did a random matchup with someone in Japan on my new 3DS. Not sure what problems other people might be having, but the newer hardware seems to work fine with WPA2. Will update if I actually have any issues.

It would depend on your country more then likely, for example the US has 1-11. While the rest of the world usually has 13, and Japan having 14. Wikipedia has a nice article about the 2.4 GHz channel (which is what the Wii uses as it is 802.11 b/g) and what your country probably supports. If you are in the US, The Wii would support 1 to 11. This is ...

According to Nintendo's Wifi help page: Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. After some clarification from Micheal Madsen, it seems the answer is slightly more ...

Here's a link on Networking with the Xbox 360, from xbox.com. Here are a couple of links from instructables.com that seem to cover exactly what you're trying to do. And here's a video of the same thing.

A few thoughts: 1) ensure your router's DHCP server is configured to allow enough clients to support all your hardware. If you have 10 clients enabled for DHCP and 11 connections are attempted, it is plausible that one device is grabbing an address and then the ps3 is left waiting for an expired lease. This can happen more often with shorter lease times ...

a better way would be to connect your laptops together with a standard ethernet cable (though a X-over might be required depending if the hardware supports it), and use static IPs or have one of them act as a DHCP host over the wired network I suggest you get together before hand to work out the kinks before you go through MC withdrawal for the trip ;) to ...

If your ping stays the same, fast-paced games like first-person shooters will be miserable. Ping is the response time (in milliseconds), so your ping stands at 0.879 seconds. Think about trying to shoot someone when you have a delay of almost a second before the bullet fires. About like driving when you are drunk. w69rdy covered pretty much everything else, ...

Honestly, you might be looking at an incompatibility between the router's implementation of 802.11 and what the DS is expecting (some random extension to 802.11 or something that's confusing the DS). Can you get your ISP to give you a different model of router maybe? Or do you have another wireless access point you can use in place of that one (or behind ...

What type of encryption do you have on your router? PSPs may not support newer encryption protocols (WPA2). If use an older protocol like WEP or WPA, you may have better luck. Edit After some quick googling, I found this article which may provide some insight. It seems WPA2/AES doesn't work, but you can use WPA2/TKIP-AES. Check your router's ...

AFAIK, there should be no problem using WPA2 with DSi (XL)/3DS. Since the WFC isn't online yet, I haven't been able to test properly, but it seems to connect properly.

Switch to a WEP if you aren't worried about the security as much and put your router on "don't show SSID" in you router setting 198.168.1.1 or 198.168.0.1. WEP isn't as secure as WPA but this has fixed the problem for people I know on their ps3s.

Go to your routers page (just type the ip of the router into the address bar in your browser), it should be located in your booklet. If your password is a WEP key, it has to be: At most 10 characters for 64bit encryption 26 characters for 128bit encryption Hexadecimal, ie. A-F characters or 1-9 Key is in the first slot (DS will only function with first ...

You mentioned that you're running it at 54mbps which is the 802.11g (note the "g") standard. According to this, the PSP only supports 802.11b. So, you'll have to go into the configuration of your router and change it to 802.11b or, if it supports dual band, 802.11b/g. Unfortunately, if your router doesn't support both at the same time, you'll have to use ...

Yes. My home broadband has notoriously bad XBOX Live performace (high pings, dropouts, etc) so I recently got a MiFi dongle and connected the Xbox to that. As long as the dongle has good signal you should be fine. My dongle (on UK Mobile network 3) has a 15GB monthly limit - a two hour Xbox Live sessions uses around 50MB. I don't use voice chat or do any ...

You could use an Ethernet cable and see if the LAN mode works. You might have to tether your phone to get DHCP working or set Static IPs on each of the machines. Otherwise yes, a cheap router would work.

Wi-Fi is rather notorious for being susceptible to interference (they're just radio waves, after all). Here's a small checklist that you should go through to make sure you're doing everything you can to reduce interference: Place your wi-fi router at an elevated place, away from sources of interference (such as TVs and soundsystems, as these have been ...

Working in tech support, I often found that there are some routers/devices that simply don't play well together with "no security". I would try factory resetting the router and then re-enabling the WEP key to something stupid and easy to remember.

The PSP runs on an 802.11b network. If you are running your router exclusively in 54Mbps mode, that means 802.11g. I have found that even running pure 802.11g networks sometimes my PSP can scan them, but not connect. If you are not running any security, you should be able to connect your PSP to your wifi network. Commenters on a previous answer mentioned ...
