We are building up our infrastructure capacities to get better testing simulation of real world Internet. I would consider it a personal favor if you posted your XMB network test results here.
We need a variety of results. Not just people with bad-ass connections. So, please get your friends with the "not so good" Internet to also post.
You can find this in SETTINGS -> NETWORK SETTINGS -> INTERNET CONNECTION TEST.
When I play-test or play with the community, I use a vDSL (virtual DSL) line. My results are:
UPnP: Not Available
NAT Type: 2
Download: 366.3 kbs
Upload: 343.9 kbs
(Note: I don't need your IP, and the test will fail if you can't connect to the Internet, or Playstation network.)
This is at "not so great" Internet connection, but should suffice to be able to play the game with a decent host. Note that the XMB test may report "Failed" for Download/Upload and then eventually populate with data. So be patient.
Please run this test when you normally play.
-If you normally play when you get home from work and your girlfriend is surfing Facebook on her wireless... run the test then.
-If your normally play at 10:00pm after your wife and kids go to bed. Run the test and report
I have Comcast Highspeed Internet if it matters, but my PS3 is connected with a wireless connection via a Netgear Router.
I'll post a second result later tonight. I typically play at around 2 different times. Around now, and then usually at night. So those will be my 2 most accurate tests. My above is for when I'd be playing now.
