My confession (Destiny)

Wifi gets a bad rap for some reason among gamers, but as long as you're using at least wireless G, you're getting a 2 megabyte per second transfer rate with almost no packet loss. At the edge of your signal, it's still 1 mBps, but with a bit of packet loss, which may be some peoples' problems. A wifi range extender will fix the packet loss, but will add a few milliseconds to their ping. If you aren't playing twitch shooters at a high level, ain't no wifi from the past 10 years gonna lag you out.

My computers and phone work fine on my Wifi, but my PS4 just chugs. I simply need to plug it in to the router or else it's horrendously slow. What could be the cause of this? The PS4 is maybe 10 feet away from the wireless point.
