D-Link DIR-825 :: Connect PS3 To 5ghz For Online Gaming?
Mar 11, 2011
i have a d-link Dir-825 (Hardware Ver. B1/Firmware 2.02NA) and i wanna connect my ps3 to the 5ghz for online gaming but i cannot find the option for it. also when scanning on my iPod Touch and PS3 for a wireless connection i cannot find the SSID that i named for 5ghz and the only one that shows up is the other SSID i named for 2.4ghz.(both SSID are not the same name). is it really worth switching from 2.4ghz to 5ghz?
OK I want to be able to play MMORPGS and other online games without any latency (or as little as possible). I have wireless 25mb internet in my house but the router is not in my room it is about 25 meters away in my parents room. I experience latency with my current set up while gaming online so I have decided to switch to wired. What is my best option for doing so? Running a wire through from the router to my room would be possible but I need to know if the length will effect performance and what type of Ethernet cable I would need (including estimated price). The other option is to move the router from that room to mine but im not familiar with how this would be done and what the costs would be
How to I find out what ports my Playstation 3 uses for online gaming? Im sure i could search online and find out but im saying how do those websites find their information? For example, even if it doesn't, let's assume Playstation Network uses port 250. How would I manually find this out? And once I find this out, how do I find out what ports any particular game uses? This way I can forward all of these ports in my router. Also, am I correct in assuming that I could simply skip all of this port forwarding and just assign my Playstation 3 a static IP address and place it in my router's DMZ, thus forwarding ALL ports to my Playstation 3? my roommate has an Xbox and plays on Xbox Live. We own 2 routers. Is there any way I can connect 2 routers to my cable modem so that 1 router can be dedicated for my Playstation 3 while the other router can be dedicated for my roommate's Xbox?
To play one i game i need to open ports 7777 and 7778 , to do that i must access my router.When i connect to standard router ip192.168.1.1 it wont work. To solve my problem i checked the name of router and read the official support.My routers model is Speedtouch 546 v6. and at official faq the adress is given, but it still wont work, then i noticed i have second router i think, its used to connect 2 TV for my internet television, its model is Zyxel ES- 105 a , in official support , their given adress wont work.
I keep getting disconnected from internet every once in while. Maybe for a minute or less, but there was never any obvious sign of disconnection, IE. my tray icon never says disconnected or limited connectivity. But there are signs of getting disconnected when I am either gaming or watching videos online. The video would buff a bit then get stucked, then loads after a few to 30 sec delay. When gaming, I would lag out or have everyone waiting for me to connect back (warcraft3, starcraft When I am downloading files, this does not ever happened, no matter how big the file size is. This problem started a few days ago. I tried restart the modem but I cannot possible do that every 15 mins. Another problem that could possibly be also be the same is that I am connected but cannot browse websites. If I am downloading anything, it will still keep download, i just can't browse or log on to online games.
I am with a reliable, well-supported local ISP. I have a brand new router, AND modem, both with the latest firmware/updates installed. I have tried resetting routers and modems, changing channels, moving the the position of my router for better signal. And yet still, inexplicably, my connection continues to be slow and choppy, and extremely unreliable. Greatly varying download speeds, and constant disconnecting. I have run out of things to try, short of calling in a technician. Is there ANYTHING I can try to do?
I take my ASUS G53SW laptop and play games on steam. My problem is that my wireless connection is so slow and I am limited to single player only games, I get bored after awhile and would rather play some online games. While trying to update a patch for League of Legends I was getting a whopping 5-7 Kbps download rate. If I try playing an FPS such as Counter strike, or left 4 dead I can join the game fine, but then my ping skyrockets into the 500+ range.
I have a 1.25 mbps download and .2 upload speed. I have a netgear n600 router and have wireless and cannot change to wired. I have around a 120 ping all most always. My current speed is the best in my area too. Is there any kind of equipment that will give me a lower ping for online gaming? Is there any router settings for this?
Moved into my grandparents for the time being. They have a DSL network...not sure how fast, but it seems very slow. I got a new computer and had to download CS:Source again over steam. It took all night to download and now when I try to go find servers none show up
They have a tiny motorola dsl router. Not sure on the model number as some of the numbers o the sticker have faded away. I hooked it up to my Netgear WGT624 v3 wireless router via the gygabyte 54mbps wireless pci card.
Can I test the connection to see if it is capable of running online games? I've got my iphone 4 hooked up to the wifi and it runs fine...same with this computer web surfing
I just had Comcast setup my internet and it is really fast. 30 down, 10 up, 40 ping, my connection to my computer (wireless) is very fast and my online gaming (wired) is not laggy at all.The problem lies with the connection dropping when I am online gaming. I connected directly to the modem and there's no problem at all. I connect to my Linksys EA3500 and once I start playing in an online game, I disconnect from Xbox Live and am dropped from the game... anywhere from right away until about 10-15 minutes into the game. This is the only time where my connection falters at all, otherwise it is great. But I play online a lot, and competitively, so I obviously need a stable connection.I have not had this issue with my previous ISP in New York, Time Warner and that connection was much worse. I'm thinking it must be a setting on the router that is causing this, but I can't pinpoint what. I tried automatic AND static connections from my xbox to the router. On the static connection, I even put a DMZ on it, but to no avail.
I own the DIR-655 version B1 (EU version) living in the UK.I play xbox, specifically in Halo Reach. My setup isn't straight forward as I have 2 xboxes in the house, one wired and one wireless and I need to keep the NAT ratings open on both. This limits me to certain settings, and doesn't allow QOS on the v2.00 firmware due to my need to have dynamic ip addresses.I have just flashed the router's firmware with new version (DIR655B1_FW205B06) as it appeared available for download in the router's firmware menu. The old version was FW2.00 as said.any other settings to enable or disable, for wired, or wireless, that will optimise for xbox gaming. Finally, I also have fw version DIR655B1_FW206B02, which was emailed to me by D-Link, if this is any better.
I need setting my 825 router on the best optimize setting for my ps3, Im running wireless on it and the router is about one room away from my ps3 which isnt that big of a difference since I am getting 95-100% signal on it, the issue is the rate speed runs about 36m-54m it NEVER, or at least I havent seen it go higher than that.I turned the QO6 engine but it didnt really change a thing, will running this wire do the majic? or is there another alternative set up I can do on the router to have it run on best settings.
I bought a DIR-655 a less than a year ago on amazon, and it was working great up until about 4 weeks ago. Ive noticed that it has been dropping alot of packets while I am gaming on my computer. I would run about 95-98 ping usually and now it jitters every 5-10 mins or so from 95-98 to up to 500. It is really troublesome during games and I dont know what to do. Ive tried disabling QoS and still nothing. I run on wireless G and N with auto 20/40 mhz. Standard WPA(personal) and it was running absolutely great until now. I know its the wireless because I have hardwired it into my laptop, both from the router and just the modem itself with no problems whatsoever. I dont know what to do about it.
I have a wired connection to the router and typically all works fine. I have several Ipods and laptops accessing the router wirelessly with no real problems. As soon as I start playing America's Army (2.8.5) on my desktop (wired) my wireless connections all drop and the kids start yelling to turn the internet back on. When I exit the game all goes back to normal...
I need to restrict access or rather, block altogether if i can, access of one of the computers on my local wireless network, to online multi-player gaming sites, in particular Age of Empires and Voobly.com, which also uses a messenger type program for them to chat.I've searched and searched online, but alas, have come up with nothing that i understand. I've tried doing the block ports thing, but am unsure if what i've been doing is right. I have blocked Voobly.com under domain and URL settings via the router admin page, but for some reason, it only seems to be denied on my computer. I even went so far as to register and download relevant programs to my computer, for Voobly, so i could see if the blocking worked. Seems it's only my computer that's blocked, i didn't specify ip or mac addresses.I am unable to get on the other computer as it's not mine, and it's also password locked. I don't know the password
I have a dir-825 and wireless clients connected on the 5ghz ssid can see clients on 2.4 ssid and also out to the WAN (internet) but can't see any clients (my NAS ) connected to the dir-825 wired lan.2.4 ghz clients see everything fine. same with clients connected through the wired lan. I've tried DHCP and static ips. no idea what to do next.I was originally on 2.02 fw and have tried 2.03, 2.05 and now 2.06I'd really like to keep the 5ghz on because I have an AP by my tv and several devices connect from there to stream from the NAS.
A few days ago I received my DIR-655 I ordered off Amazon and hooked it up. There were no problems the first day after initial setup. The next day I noticed that I was losing internet connection even though the wifi indicator on my laptop said otherwise. This happens for about 5 minutes at a time and on other devices such as my desktop and my iPad. And I hopped on Call of Duty last night and played a competition with some friends and gave everyone 4bar connection. Later that night, I was playing some more and people that connected to me received 1bar connection and I got that in return on their connection. I feel that the router isn't working with my devices right?
I've tried so many settings I cant even remember where i left off but one general question, troubleshoot to the next step with the wga54g; sometimes the connection shows 'acquring address' but never connects. I've fiddled with things so that i can get the GA to acquire an address but the internet comes through. Also the GA never shows up on the client table. So is the fact that i can get a network address a good thing or doesn't that necessarily mean i'm 'connected' to the network. Its frustrating to have the G light lite up yet no connection also at one point I did get the GA to show up in the client table when it was directly connected to the linksys 1200 but when i walked into the room and attached it to the PC, no dice I've turned off all firewalls temporarily and the 1200 is set on wpa/wp2 mixed. when i tried setting it just to wpa i got a warning then I lost my internet. I had to reinstall the 1200 again.
We've been using an 655 in an NGO office that has grown to 20+ computers in two buildings (next to each other). The 655 doesn't seem to be handling that many clients very well so I want to get another one (perhaps a more powerful unit). We will stay operating on 2.5Ghz, have one of the units act as an AP in the other building (too bad we can't bridge with these). Most of the router activity is LAN based (server, etc). Our Internet connection is only 256kbps satellite (and is proxied first through the server). But the LAN performance is not good when many clients are active and some services on the router will freeze and require reboot several times a week, assuming b/c it's overtaxed.
1. know if the 825 will perform better in in 2.5ghz only mode than the 655? Seems that it has more RAM. Newer processor too? The tests I saw online showed that the 655 outperformed the 825 in simultaneously connections, but I assume that was probably in dual mode. I want to know if the 825 will be better in 2.5ghz only mode. We won't need 5ghz mode.
2. Is there another newer DLink I should consider that would provide better capacity and throughput on 2.5ghz only? However, it is ciritical that we keep the same feature set for security (IP based access control rules to various IP ranges on the Internet).
3. It would be awesome if some DLink supported even more sources and/or destinations per access control rule. We use these extensively and the 655 B1 2.01 build has several bugs for access control rules. Is there any DLink that has more robust access control or is it about the same for all?
Have hooked up a DIR-825 to an iMac and it works well on 2.4GHz band. Having issues seeing 5GHz band as it comes and goes. Just today bought a DWA-160 USB adapter hoping it would connect the kid's PS3 to the 5GHz band but the PS3 wont accept or recognize either the DWA-160 or the 5GHz band.
Can't find any solutions in the manuals.Desperate for a fix as the wife and I want to be able to work on the 2.4GHz without being constantly kicked off by the kids on the PS3.
What is the 5GHz antenna orientation in the DAP-1522? If I want to get the best signal for streaming to a DSM-750 how should I orient the the DAP-1522? Horizontal? Vertical? and which edge towards the media player?
It's working but the access point only reports about 50% signal strength over 20 feet (and only 1 wall) so I would have expected better. I've tried turning the box a couple of different ways but didn't see any big difference in the reported signal strength.
I recently installed a NetGear router to my PC in order to do online gaming. Now my laptop does not connect to the internet. I have spent over 9 hours on the phone with Centurylink (the internet provider); Netgear (the router) and HP (the laptop). Each one says its not their problem. The laptop can find our connection, it says "Connected". However it then says "Internet access denied".
I have a DIR-825 router connected to my cable modem. The 2.4ghz constantly goes down but not the 5.0ghz. Our wireless devices will see the connection but we are unable to connect.We only have one device that uses the 5.0 and multiple devices that use the 2.4 and none of them can connect.I am currently running firmware 2.02. I also notice that the time changes and I have to reset the time/date.I have tried rebooting the device, resetting the router, changing the network key, updated the time/date, renewed the DHCP...I don't know why it keeps going down, why the time/date keeps changing, and why I cannot get the 2.4 working.
