    Hi all,

    Today I was playing the ps3 (call of duty MW3)... normally I would connect via wireless but I'm getting a ton of lag and it's becoming frustrating. Later on I moved the ps3 downstairs and connected it via Ethernet and it worked so good.

    I want to look into buying those Ethernet power lines but not sure how good they are compared to running a Ethernet cable from the ps3 to the router or how good they will be vs wireless anyone have any experience with this?

    I just don't want to waste money on these. If all else fails we will probs run a Ethernet cable through the ceiling.

    Anyway let me know what you think.

    Thanks in advance

    All my machines in the house (4) are connected through Netgear units (one through a different Japanese/Chinese protocol). They work fine for me. Mine are rated at 54 mbps, more than my ISP's speed by a long shot.

    Just make sure that the power outlets are on the same branch as the router is connected. Half the house should be on the same one.
