Tutorial on how to improve the quality, unlike PS Vita the PC ver. doesn’t have a direct connection option so that makes it even more sour.
First thing to try is connecting the PS4/PC through Ethernet and making sure PC and PS4 are on the same network (Doesn’t matter how stupid it sounds, just do it).
CHANGING CHANNEL/Ghz Options:
This one is usually for those who can’t access the ethernet cable, mostly due to awkward positions/Orientations of the PS4/PC. So you have to rely on Wi-Fi.
- Firstly you need to make sure whether your connection is set to 5Ghz (Range) or 2.4Ghz (Quality). Follow this tutorial if you don’t know how to check.
- It’s up to you which one you want, Quality or Range. Now we’re gonna try changing channels.
- Get a channel changing app on your phone if you can, don’t know any good apps to recommend for iOS but I recommend this one if you’re on android.
- This app scans Wi-Fi in your area, now you need to change the channel to the least used one (Less Traffic so better connection).
NOTE:Remote Play SHOULD work better now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be flawless but it will certainly be better than before
This was my first tutorial on the site, so I appreciate any feedback 😉
