I wish we would all wait 1 month before judging the consoles. I'm waiting til next year to get a PS4 but these articles need strong data to support the claims before being taken seriously.

Uh, so the answer is don't do a nearly 2gb initial system update wirelessly...why wouldn't this be obvious to anyone that's played games more than once?

To be fair my brother struggled to get the PS4 day one update via wifi. You have a lot of people pulling the dl from the servers at one time.

I finally told him to do it via usb and he had no issues. For me personally my PS4 stays hard wired to the modem. That being said I also used USB to install the update although I swapped hdds one day one.

What the hell are you talking about? Do you live in North Korea or something?

I've never had this slow update problem or struggling to update under load. It may be I am lucky with my internet but I live in crazywebbedfeetland aka. Norfolk.

Its only because of so many people trying to update at the same time.So far so good on the hardware side.

It's a shame we can't have things simply work the way they were meant to upon buying them. Instead, the company has to tell customers how to fix their product. -_-

Bottom line on the Wi-Fi is that it is susceptible to interference from other electronic devices which can lead to things like data packet loss, latency issues or even complete connection loss and also due to attenuation of the signal as it passes through the structure of your house. While Wi-Fi is wonderful it is not the best for gaming or HD streaming unless the Wi-Fi source is right next to your connected device. I would not recommend Wi-Fi for anyone who is serious about online gaming, major downloading, or streaming at all. Your best bet is an hardline Ethernet connection. Every house that I have every had I pulled Cat 6 Ethernet cable through.

Wi-Fi is fine for mobile devices and printers and even the new Xbox One controllers with Wi-Fi Direct but if you want a connection that won't get F@!ked up by your wife or roommate using that high power microwave oven or the 6 walls and steel ducting running between your wireless modem and your console then run Ethernet to your console. It is far more reliable and has a much higher overall band width (for cat 5e and 6).

Weather its WiFi or Ethernet there should be no data lose. You may get dropped packets but that is why they are using TCPIP. There should be no issue with the final firmware data that arrives to the console.

Wifi for gaming is a no no in my personal experience.
gamertk421  +   245d ago
My update took 3 minutes and 12 seconds.
ipach  +   245d ago
uh, doesn't sound like much of a fix. presumably, anyone who first runs into that problem would have tried all this already before saying it was a problem...
Smootherkuzz  +   245d ago
Do not use wifi for Internet connection to any game console your asking for headaches.
Kingoftherodeo  +   245d ago
Who uses wifi for gaming ?????
SegaGamer  +   245d ago
Updates, updates and more updates, here's an idea, release something without problems for once.
