If you experience low speed connection problems on the PlayStation 4, there may be some additional configurations you can make that will help.

The following suggestion was sent by a MediaHint user:
You can try opening/forwarding ports on your router for PlayStation to work at its best.

First, in your PlayStation configuration you must set an IP for the PS4 so it will not get a different one on a router reboot in the future. This is done by going to settings > networks, and setting up network just as in the setup steps above, only before changing DNS – also change IP, to just any IP in your own network (try giving it a high number at the end of the IP so it will always be available).

Then on the router side, either set the PS4 IP (the number you’ve just set in the PS4) as DMZ to quickly open all ports, or manually open ports: 80, 443, 1935, 3478, 3479, 3480 for both TCP & UDP.
