How to improve ps4 wi-fi speeds

I fixed it without doing anything too complicated.

 

 

I went into network connections, made sure that none of my connections is being shared and then bridged wifi and lan port to create Ethernet 2 bridged connection.

Then I plugged an ethernet cable into ps4 and laptop.

On the ps4 I went into set up as LAN and went into custom setup, then for IP Address I selected manual, gave it an IP address that will never be used by my devices eg 192.168.1.40, 

for subnet mask I went onto my laptop and ran command prompt then put in command ipconfig /all and got subnet mask, default gateway as well as primary and secondary dns, then put them all into the ps4 and went onto next step, which is leaving everything default. 

Now I get download speeds of 50mbps and upload of 15mbps

 

Hope this helps someone in the future

I get around 70DL and 30UL on my laptop over wifi. 

And on my ps4 I get 1DL and 1.1UL, I tried changing DNS to googles one (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4) as well as giving it a static IP and changing settings in my router to give it priority and I get no improvement at all. 

Do you know any other way without buying a repeater or powerline adapter that can improve the wifi?

I'm assuming ps4 has a crap network card which is a bottleneck but 1mbps is a joke in this day,

Moving them closer to one another. Also, if your ps4 is tucked in your media console with a bunch of other electronics, they may be interfering.

 

 

EDIT: Changing your DNS settings WILL NOT make your download speeds any faster, it can only make a small difference when going to websites. (kinda like a better ping time, but not exactly) 


When in doubt, re-format.

So what you wanna do is get some fiber optic wire, dig a hole from your house to the ISP server location and directly connect it to a server and disconnect everyone else using that server.

 

Seriously, be happy with those speeds. PS4 isn't that same as a laptop. (Background tasks)


Might add this later...

Plug it in to an ethernet cord. You will get your full moneys worth. I don't suggest using wifi in anything in a house that you can avoid doing. If you are paying for 66 down you should get it not like 40 that you get on wifi.

i want youre damn internet

tbh though, wire it or move it closer to your router

I used to have 5mbps for years now finally can do everything properly :) I have it about 5 meters away and signal strength is a 90%

If you have other things like range extenders , they will piggy back the same wifi channel and slow everything down. I had this problem because of an extender upstairs, when I unplugged it, my downstairs signal quality went way up. Other than that and moving something, no...no you do not. :D

jokes aside move it closer to the router and try different channels to reduce interference.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Agreed move it closer, try and get line of sight to your router. 

Also, I get 50 Mb DL, 15 Mb UL.
