I have a wireless G DSL modem/router from the phone company where i live. I have the PS3 setup a floor below the router. The signal is comming up anywhere from 85-100% at all times on the PS3, when i do a wireless scan. So, it streams everyting fine, but HD divx in the form of files with .vob extensions on them (they are MKV files converted to VOB files that the ps3 can play perfectly using mkv2vob program off Doom9's forum site).
The movies play for a few seconds then hiccup then play for a second, then hiccup. I watch the framrate in the top right corner of the TV and it seems anything over 10Mbps will result in a hiccup.
I moved the wireless router 6 feet away from the ps3 with all the same setup and same results, although it seemed to start hiccuping around 15 Mbps then.
When i put the HD movie on a usb stick and put it in the ps3, or burn it to a DVDr it plays fine, perfect actually.
So is the problem with the router? or the PS3's wireless settings. I cannot find anywhere to set the ps3's network settings that would correct this problem.
My only step would be to buy another wireless router and set it up at the ps3 and plug it into it via LAN cable. But at 54Mbps, wireless G should stream 20 odd Mbps video, the sound is only in the kbps range.
does the PS3 default to wireless B or is it just G, and is there any way to force it to G. If i done it correctly, i already set the wireless router to 54Mbps output, ie wireless G.
Could somebody somewhere help me, as i bought the PS3 strickly for streaming HD divx to the 50" plasma.
