Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

@RedGooner You owe that to your ASUS beasty. Having said that the hub 3 actually works fairly well once the wifi settings are manually altered, as experienced by many in this thread.

I do, but i only got it 6 months ago, i was on another ASUS router that was 5 years old, and still had no lag.

Your fix may work now, but give it time, and all will be moaning again. The SH was NEVER built with gaming in mind.

Also Sony missed a trick by only putting a 2.4GHz Wifi in it. The PS4 Pro has a way better Wifi in it.

Anyone thinking of buying a PS4 should ONLY go for the PRO, IMO.

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

Hi all,

Are the lag issues on the PS4 still ongoing?

In order for us to troubleshoot this further, It would be helpful if you could log into the Hub (192.168.0.1) re-enable the 'channel optimisation' option and confirm if the lag issues return.

If this is the case could you then please:

  1. Select Advanced Settings > Wireless > Security
  2. Split 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz to different names
  3. Connect PS4 to the 5Ghz SSID

Keep ‘Enable Channel optimisation’ on.

Post back here and let us know if the latency issues have recovered or not.

Many thanks

@Ralph_R The PS4 does NOT Support 5GHz wifi, only the PS4 Pro / Slim does.

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

As much as i'd love to try this, I can't even sign into the superhub to try to change the settings **bleep** lol

I know the credentials are correct because when I purposely put in incorrect ones I get an error message. When I put in the correct password it just does nothing.

All feels like a bad prank

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

I didn't have faith in it being fixed anytime soon and I couldn't even log into the superhub's settings to try to tinker around because it was bugging. In my frustration I bought a new router to connect to the superhub and run all of my devices, including PS4, from that.

My PS4 connection test speed has gone from ~4mps to ~40mbps, and my macbook's wifi from 20 mbps to 112 mbps.

Packet loss via the new router is consistent 0% while gaming and ping went from around 40ms to 11ms. Its a shame it resorted to this but its a good fix if anyone doesn't want to wait and can afford it. I bought the TP Link AC1750 Archer C7

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

Hi

We’re aware of an issue affecting some customers using a WiFi connection on our Hub 3.0 router while gaming online. We apologise for any frustration and inconvenience caused.

We’ve identified the problem and a fix will be rolled out by tomorrow morning (Saturday 29 September). No action will need to be taken by yourselves.

The problem is caused by a WiFi channel testing feature on the Hub 3.0. A technical issue occurring during this test may result in greater lag when playing games online. Other online activity is unaffected.

Best wishes,

James
