I have what seems to me an odd problem with having game updates stall out when I am trying to download them over my wireless connection, and last night was sufficiently annoying enough for my to finally ask about it.

1. When I turned on my PS3 it said a system update was required. I downloaded the entire update v4.25 with no problem over my wireless connection.

2. I put in my Madden 13 disc and was told I need to install game update 1.02. *groan*

3. Naturally my update stalled out a bunch of times as I tried to update over the wireless connection. Because that happens ALL the time no matter the game title or size of the download.

4. I disconnected the 50' ethernet cable from my router and dragged it all through the house and down the stairs and plugged it into my PS3 so I could download over the wired connection.

So is there a server difference in system updates vs. game updates? It really doesn't make any sense that I could download a much larger system update with no problems (and I never have problems with those) but not a game update (which I can NEVER completely download).



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

*snip*

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

Torchslasher had this sort of problem last year, and ths solution worked for him:



    There's a 2010 thread that suggests
    - Go To Network Settings
    - Change Media Server to Disable



I don't know why I have thought about doing it too; my wireless never stops working, but can be incredibly slow. 8 hours for the Madden demo!
