I recently upgraded my uverse from the 25Mbps to the uverse Hsia45, I have 1 wired ps3, 1 wireless and 1 ps4 wireless. The wired one runs on about 22Mbps and as for the wireless they run about max 17Mbps. I was hoping to reach around 30 considering the ps4 is barely 7 feet from myNVG589. I called and they agreed I should have at least 30Mbps. I looked into the settings and tried changing the channel as well as switching bandwith from 20 to 40 Mhz and it seemed to either jump a bit up or down. I have a tech already scheduled to come out but was hoping I can get some insight as to what may be the issue.
I was also looking into getting Wireless AC to see if I can get the full 45Mbps as I do on my desktop which is wired. Any suggestions or advice would greatly help me out so I dont go out and spend the money on a new AP.

I have seen postings that indicate (a) the PS speed tests are not that accurate and (b) they max out about the rate you're seeing them hit, regardless of the network connection.
Have you seen better rates on another provider?

how are speedtests on other devices?
PS3 is b/g wireless capable only.
For g wireless 54M is theory, 1/2 is available 27M, most can be expected to see is about 80% of 27 for 22M (some report getting 23M).
due to congestion, interference, channel selection could be anywhere from 8 to 22 so 17 is not bad.
if it has to work, hardwired, remember thereis no guarantee minimum internet speed wirelessly.

If your PC is getting 45+ Mbps, then there is nothing the tech is going to be able to do for you.

I understand. However, the AT&T techs can't make the RG provide wireless any better than it does. They can give you a different RG, but it's probably just as good as the one you've got. What AT&T techs do well is getting better signal down the line to the RG. Since your PC is getting 45+ Mbps, there's nothing for them to really do there.
So, the issue really is
(a) what's making the wired PS3 report 22 Mbps
(b) what's making the wireless PS3 and the wireless PS4 report 17 Mbps.
It could be that the site that supports the PS3/PS4 speed test can only push out data at 22 Mbps. I have no way of really knowing that.
You can acquire your own 802.11ac wireless router, but unless the PS4 support 802.11ac (which I'm pretty sure it doesn't), you won't get 802.11ac. At best you'd get 802.11n. I think it may be worthwhile to get a better 802.11n wireless router, but I don't know whether that'll fix your problems or not.

Thanks for your assistance, I did read some other posts and other options which in a sense its not the issue on my end but the server on the psn network. Im not really sure if the wireless ac would have helped but I would assume that it would have given a better signal but again i dont experience any lag or anything on it. For now I will just go with the setup I currently have since I do have a Linksys WAP4400n AP which I have just sitting around.

It's not very helpful, but to give you just a little support, I have 75 MBPS connection, but my PS3 gets under 20, and not just PS, I have an Xbox 360 and One and they both are much slower than any computers or tablets, with 360 at aroun 20 and One only reaching about 35 MBPS. I always assumed it had something to do with XBox Live and PSN getting in between.
