Title: Perfect WiFi Router
Post by: Predictabo on September 09, 2017, 11:54:44 pm
Guys, I need your help. I just can't take it anymore. I have the standard Comcast modem that they give you. The speeds are garbage as hell on my PS4. I can barely play today because it's so ass. I'm not paying $155/month for 5.7mbps/22.8kbps down and up. What router/modem do you recommend? I'm clearly a noob in this area and your help would greatly be appreciated.

The perfect wi-fi router? No such thing. wi-fi is effected by the amount of overlapping wi-fi signals in range, and its reliability is heavily reliant on the receiving network adapter. If you can, direct connect with an Ethernet cord, or move your router as close to the ps4 as possible.  if that's not doable then bridge the modem and get yourself a decent dual band router, and in this case you really do get what you pay for. So bring money.

This one looks alright and wont break the bank.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LXL1AR8 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LXL1AR8)

also... where the hell do you live that you have to pay $155 for 5 down and 0.2 up? That's more than I pay for all 3 services, which is full cable/phone and 150 down/15 up.

How close is your ps4 to your router? I'm pretty far from mine so I use a power line adapter to get an ethernet connection 2 floors up.

Yeah, get a good router and keep it close to the computer or game console that way the signals stays strong and play with people close to you, cause you never know how they got theirs set up. Playing with online friends in other countries shows how much you need a good connection, for doing your part in the long run.
