Hello all, I have a quick question and i need a good and informative answer pls??? Okay i'm with virgin media, and I have a 10mb broadband connection. I have a WIRED desktop( windows XP SP3), and A PS3 connected wirelessly. And i currently have a BElkin wireless N router model no: F58233-4V3 This is it here.....click here
I've had this router for a while with no probs, and i got it for £30 about 5 months back, But ive had problems playing the new pro evo soccer 2010, as i have to do port forwarding to port 3658, and then I have other problems as well.
Just looking on line today, argos are doing another offer here click here
So my question IS......that is there a big diffrence btw the router i currently have and the argos one, as they both seem to be wireless N cable routers?? and if there is what difrrences do they have pls??? many thanks
The Wireless N router isn't the problem speed wise, you would get the same speed using a non Wireless N router. The PS3's wireless connection is, as far as I'm aware IEEE 802.11g which will connect at 54 Mbps at best, roughly half the speed of a wired connection, this speed is the theoretical top speed, it can drop below this depending on walls and such blocking the wireless signal.
Unless you have a Wireless N network card card in your desktop/laptop you won't see any speed increase in your connection and as I said the PS3 only has 802.11g connectivity.
Hello ive done a firmware update, and reset my N router, the problem seems to have been sorted now, with the game in question. Ive had to disable the belkin firewall, but ive got kaspersky 2010 internet security on my desktop pc. Thnaks for all the help!!
