    i conducted an experiment from my basement for signal strenth

    no hands (set on couch) 97%

    only right hand 80%
    only left hand 70%
    both hands 60%
    headphones plugged in (both hands) 35%!!!
    in case with no hands 80%



    hope this helps

    is this guy serious?! that is malarky...how the hell can you reduce the signal strenght by touching the psp? if the psp wasnt grounded properly, it wouldnt work at all....and you'd have alot of errors....so how the hell would touching it reduce your %? If anything the human body would act as a catalyst and you should get a better signal...


    static electricity does NOT affect your signal strength...

    This makes no sence. I use PSP Radio with both hands and headphoces in and I got 97%.
    Your router is messed up or soemthing.

    your body absorbs the signal, you have to remember that wifi is not the same as electicity, it has to go through stuff, and having a big metal pole next to you wont help anything unless you have it connected directly to the psp's wifi. your hand has bone inside of it so that disperses the signal. Now also you have to remember that i was in my basement. my wifi is in my living room. when im in my living room i get 100% regardless of what i do. and you have to remember that your body has a lot of metal in it, and if you have ever been next to a wall with metal with your cell phone or other means, you know it screws up your signal. try it yourself. if you have 2.0+ connect to the internet, then get as far as you can away, but still get a decent signal. open up the web browser, and then go to display connection status. lay your psp on a surface and step back. see what it says. then hold your hand under it. the signal strength goes down. it wont work if your too near because the signal is too strong to make a difference. I thought my headphones would act as an antena, but here is how i did that experiment.



    had my had phones, pluged them half way in(not fully) the signal did not go down.

    then i plugged them all the way in and it took a major drop.

    My headphone wires are all gold so i dont know if that made a difference.


    but if your body is directly touching an antenea then the signal gets stronger.

    dont ask me how it works i just gave you the results. and static electicity has a lot to do with disturbances in radio signal that is why when it storms out side, the tv signal isnt so great and neither are cell phones, and dont say it is cloud coverage because when its cloudy but not storming it doesnt have any effect. maybe im radioactive, like the way a microwave screws up radio waves,

    no it just varies. set the psp in one spot. scan. then after that scan again and you wil get different. also if you rotate it like 5 degres it chenges even mre

    im not talking about scanning. go to connection status in your browser.... then you get up to date information that tells what it is. it stays at 80% then drops, as soon as i plug my headphones in.
