      have you tried putting your PS3 into a DMZ on your router? or setting up port forwarding?
      Also have you downloaded the latest PS3 firmware?

      Using a wireless connection? If so try it with a cable connection, wireless can give a very poor unstable speed. If this is the case, try changing the channel on the router. Start at 13 and work your way down till you find the most stable one.

      You could also download Netstumbler, link below, this will show you all your local networks and the channels they are using. Choose a channel as far from those in use as possible. You might also want to try changing the router mode from Auto to g&b or g only.

      Definately give what "Isitme" has mensioned above a shot, but also have a look at this link for which ports to setup fort forwarding for (if you decide you dont want to use the DMZ function)

      try the dmz option just see if if that makes a difference, if it does you can leave it or setup port forwarding.

      Set your ps3 to a static IP that is on the same address range of the router e.g IP 192.168.0.50 Subnet 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 DNS 192.168.0.1 and 208.67.222.222

      then log onto your router and find the DMZ section (probably in the advanced section) and set the ip of the xbox in the dmz which in the case above wud be 192.168.0.50

      then restart the PS3 and test download.
