How to Do a Ping Test on a PS3


A ping test is a useful tool for measuring the strength of your Internet connection on a device. In gaming scenarios, such as on the PlayStation 3 (PS3), it's essential to have a good network connection. The better the connection, the quicker you'll complete your downloads and keep up with the gaming action. In online first-person shooters, you don't want to get left behind. Check your connection statistics to make sure you're getting what you pay for from your Internet service provider.

  • Power on the PlayStation 3 and allow it to boot up.

  • Eject any discs from the drive. The PlayStation will revert back to the main menu.

  • Scroll through the lists to find the Internet browser and launch it.

  • Input "" in the address bar of the browser and then press go.

  • Allow the ping test time to run. Once it is complete, it will display your results.
