PS3 Internet Speeds

I thought google was my friend but apparently not - does anyone know why when you do an internet connection test on a PS3 the speeds recorded are so low? Mine is wired through a powerline and while I would expect slightly slower speeds it is losing 50Mbps somewhere.

Think this has been reported before and turned out to be the inbuilt speed tester, using a browser based one like speed test.net provided more realistic results.

Re: PS3 Internet Speeds

Yep, mine does the same. Use the browser and find a speed test that works and you'll see that it's not actually struggling for speed.
