I know wired is the best option. But wireless is the most suitable in my situation. I have a Dynalink RTA1025w Router. Having issues streaming 1080p content and using the net at the same time.

If I used a router capable of more than 54mbps would this help?

You'd best be aiming for 801.11N if you want to stream 1080p, (or at least QoS on media streaming).

Highly recommend to get wired connection (cheapest and quickest solution), or 801.11N or HomeplugHD (or Ethernet over Powerline, HD 200Mbps)

i dunno, i don't think there's any point having a Wireless N router, if the PS3 doesn't support it or any other PCs in the house

Is your modem a Wireless-G modem?
Try these settings in the Media Server:
1) Adjust maximum bandwidth setting to 20 MBps
2) Mpeg quality settings to: 25, 5, 2
3) Checkbox for remux audio track when is AC3
4) Mencoder -> Ensure A/V sync alternate method is checked
5) Switch to TsMuxer when h264 available

Once done, click Restart HTTP server and then try it :) tell us how you go\

Also are all your wireless modems Wireless G capable? it sounds as though they might be connecting at a lower speed. Change your modem to support only wireless G signals. So they are forced to connect at the higher speed

Hey dude,

Are yous sure its the network and not the cpu that isaffecting streaming in 1080p? I think u need a dual core minimum to stream/transcode on the fly in 1080p.

Also, forgot to mention this:

You'll need to set a limit to the bandwidth used by the program, in the "Transcoding Settings->Encoder settings ->Maximum Bandwidth" textbox. A value of 14, or 15 (in Mbits) is an average value for Wifi/CP


According to the PS3 Media Server faqs, most wifi connections will get overloaded with HD video, you need to set it lower so it can handle streaming it through

Also as rossmnz says, post your PC specs, could be a bottleneck somewhere causing the issues
