      Steaming from PC to PS3 so slowwww !

      Hi guys

      I have a Netgear router connected to PC via ethernet & then am coneecting wireless to PS3. If i stream music from PC using WMP to PS3 then it takes an age between each track (around 10 secs to 30 secs !).

      PC is located upstairs with PS3 opposite corner of house so not exactly close....is there anything I can do to improve this without moving PC closer ?

      Thanks

      Thinking out loud, if i connect the PS3 aswell via ethernet (huge long lead taken up thru loft & downside of house needed ) , with both PC & PS3 wired, how does the streaming work ? Will they talk via ethernet cables (instead of wirelessly )so therefore help situation ?

      PS3's wireless isn't great for streaming, you should get much better results if you connect your PS3 directly to the router with a cat5 ethernet cable.

      Or save on all the wiring and use homeplugs, that way you can move them around if you need to. I also makes a great improvement to online games by reducing lag.

      A pair of Solwise will cost around 40 from e-bay

      In all the cases I have seen they are just about as good, you can get different ones for higher speed and HD streaming etc.
