    Wifi is very degraded on one comp and a PS4, ok on new device


    I have a computer running Windows 10 upgrade and a PS4 that are attached to a wifi router. I am getting a down load speed of aprox 1-1.4 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up. An other computer that connects to the same router is working great with almost 100 Mbps down.

    I know longer know the required stuff that has to be set up on the adaptor. Could it be something as simple as missing a service or something?

    Any thoughts or suggestions encouraged and appreciated.

    :)

    Is there anything better than this which has maximum Wifi range? For example can it play movie from 30 meter distance ? From other room ?

    Thanks.

  3. Wifi very slow on laptop, but ok on other devices - Windows 10

    Hi Annu

    I've had the same problem as Panayiotis1984. Upgraded to Windows 10 on my Lenovo from windows 8.1 - now the wifi is painfully slow. The wifi still works fine on my other devices (smartphone etc).

    I tried the steps that you suggested but they did not bring an improvement.

    Any other suggestions?

    Michael

    PS4 external play options

    MKV is a container format which can hold unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file, but PS4 can play MKV files with the following specification:
    • H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level 4.2
    • MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)


    Once the MKV you add to PS4 does not meet the above requirements, the problem occurs.


    To solve the issue, there are many methods and here list two of them:

    1. Handbrake is the go to free converter for video files on Mac.

    HandBrake: Open Source Video Transcoder

    Install it and then point it at one of your MKV files and convert to one of the preset MP4 defaults in the Handbrake sidebar. Under "Regular" you should be fine with "Normal" or "High Profile" settings.

    2. A step by step guide on Does PS4 Play MKV.

    The article introduces a detailed guide to help you solve PS4 won't play MKV issue.
