PS3 connection much worse recently with wireless u-verse. what could the problem be?

I had dsl for at&t before and although slow it was always smooth. Now every since I upgraded to u-verse i can only log i to playstationNetwork half of the time and most games often kick me out of their servers. games often lag and general gameplay quality is worse. The only thing that has proper speed on the ps3 is youtube.

@TheOnlinePolak  See SomeJoe's great wireless interference thread:

Also see the SJ post:

Please Read for a Potential Solution

For many people, the DHCP problems with the 2Wire routers can be solved by configuring the RG as follows:

1. Go to http://192.168.1.254/ and find the RG's wireless configuration page.

2. Change the setting "Wi-Fi Protected Setup" to Disabled.

3. Change the setting "Authentication Type" to WPA2-PSK (AES).

4. Click the "Save" button at the bottom.

5. This procedure may ask for your RG's password. The default password for your RG is printed on a sticker on the side of the RG (3600HGV, 3800HGV-B, 3801HGV and NVG589/510) or on a white sticker on the backup battery (i3812V).

Disabling WPS should help with the DHCP timeout issue and general wireless connection problems.

Setting authentication specifically to WPA2-PSK/AES improves connection reliability on Macs and other Apple products.

 

Good luck 😉

Unfortunatly none of the above situations helped. I have tested my ps3 and it says connection strength is 97% so that is not the problem. I have also tried forwarding ports and placing a static ip on the ps3 so both of those can be eliminated. Any other solutions. Or is there any way to simply plug in a second router into the wall to extend the signal?
