Does anyone have any ways to improve their Soul Calibre 4 online performance?

I am playing it on the PS3 and notice that if I face anyone who has a connection rank lower then 5 the game is unplayable. Even for some people with a connection rank of 5 the game is just bearable. My internet is by no means slow, I can usually average a downstream of around 500kb and an upload at peaks at around 100.

(Asking for my brother.)

Well, is the modem sharing anything else? Unplug any other consoles or PCs or similar devices perhaps. It might also help to give the PS3 a static IP address and double-check that all the right ports are open etc. This information should be easily found online (sorry, I only have a 360 but I'm assuming that as a networked device, the PS3 can be assigned IPs and so forth).

If he's running bittorrent at the same time he should kill that or at least put an extreme restriction on it's upload rate.

Is he using the PS3's wireless connection or is it wired? Is he using NAT2? Any problems with other games?

If you're okay loading a Linux firmware on your router (or have a router that supports it out of the box), try setting up QoS.

Response by poster: Sorry for the late reply:
SC4 doesn't have any listed ports that it needs open. The only thing running on my pc while i play online is MSN. The ps3 is connected directly to my router. I can't set up QOS on my router.
