Default how do I keep my PS3 internet connection strong?

When my PS3 is on for a while, at least 20-30 min, it sometimes loses its internet connection, or it logs off. Today I was playing the online mode of Hot Shots Golf 4, and it went offline suddenly. I use wireless broadband, but I can only get up to 30% signal strength. Am I having trouble because the signal has to go through at least 2 walls?

Probably. You might also be getting interference from a neighbour's access point, cordless phones, microwaves, baby monitors, bla bla bla...

Stop downloading so much porn. Increases speed dramatically.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem but my ps3 always disconnects my computer's internet everytime it logs on to the psn, so I have to reconnect to everything on my comp

I get logged off when there is no "activity" but when I am on CoD4, I never get logged off.

I also just found out that I have a NAT Type 3. I am not sure if that is part of the problem. Hopefully, I will have time this w/end to fix that.

Yes and yes. I too have this problem. I have to reset (unplug and plug it back in) my wi-fi at least 3 times a week.

Well Im honestly glad other people are having this problem as well. I've been getting very annoyed by having to restard my router so much. Ive tried 2 different routers as well, I thought my linksys was dying but my D-link does the same thing.
