When I am playing ps3 I play mostly battlefield 3. Some people say I am lagging. I don't notice a lag other than some times my bullets won't hit people.

How can I test for lag?

 

I went on this website testmy.net/compID/6527804311826

and got

on speedtest.net I got a ping of 29ms, download of 11.15 mb and uplaod of 9.46

 

this is on a computer that is connected wirelessly not the computer with the router

What speed package are you supposed to be on? Need to know both the download and upload speed. You're pulling 10/10 which isn't a package. Are you on Wireless?

Is your PS3 connected with a cable or wireless?  PS3's have a notoriously weak wireless adapter; what I did was buy a separate WIreless N Access Point, put it next to my PS3, and connect the PS3 to the adapter with a short CAT5 cable.  That helped my network speeds a lot.

make sure it's only your PS3 that is getting that kinda speed.

 

so try tomake sure you are hardwired to the router with a pc or laptop

test your speed at speedtest.verizon.net

if your speed isn't close to what you are supposed to get, hit the analysis link on the results page, and then cut and paste your results here. 

 

you should be close if not over your speed when hardwired

Run a speed test for us on a wired PC so we can make sure you're getting the full 50Mbps/20Mbps. FiOS is supposed to deliver everything. If it does not, it may be the issue with the lag you're seeing. Also, visit pingtest.net to perform a basic ping test and supply the results to us.

 

Also if you have any other game consoles or games you can try to see if lag is only based on certain servers or with certain platforms, that would be great. If you have a capable PC with some games, that'd be the best way to check since PCs don't often rely on other players hosting the server; they have dedicated servers.

If you have a cable coax outlet near the PS3 then you can get a great wired connection using something called a MOCA LAN bridge -- converts ethernet over coax to ethernet over cat5. I use the Actiontec ECB2200 -- pricey but worth it to me not to have to use wireless or a long run of cat5 cable.

 

Lots of people using this with FIOS so info can be obtained via Google.

 

Good luck!

Well, the speed test seems fine. Sometimes the Verizon test mis-reports some values and it seems this might be a case where the upload is being mis-reported. You can try gauging your results against other servers to see if that makes any difference. 25/25 should be what you get, probably more along the lines of 30/25 especially if you have TV.

 

But it seems like your connection is running smooth enough, despite being unable to check for packet loss. You wouldn't be pulling that kind of download if you had loss in your connection. So to me, it sounds like an issue with the PS3's connectivity and the host/route to the host of whatever game you're playing, not a Verizon issue. If you have any games that have Dedicated Server support, that's really your best check. Also, if you have NAT Type 1 and wind up hosting, if everyone is not lagging or complaining about lag you're fine.
