Method 3: Test Your Internet Connection
Sometimes internet connection is not performing well on the PS4. But it’s working properly on the other devices. So, first, check your internet connection through PS4.
Wi-Fi is not working properly mostly because if you’re using a Wi-Fi connection there is a loss in the internet connection. Use an ethernet cable to get proper and full speed internet.
I recommend that all the PS4 users use ethernet cable on your PS4 instead of Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi is easier than ethernet but Wi-Fi connection cannot perform well than ethernet cable.

- Select Network
