    Hi there. So yesterday I installed PS3 Media Server on my Windows 7 machine so that I could stream the movies on my external hard drive that is hooked up to my computer to my PS3. Both the computer and PS3 are connected wirelessly to my network. I have noticed that sometimes the video can get a little choppy. I suspect this is because I am doing this wirelessly. I would like to plug the PS3 directly into my router, but the router is too far away so this won't really be possible unless I move everything, which I would really not like to do. I was wondering if a network bridge set up and placed next to the PS3 and connected with an ethernet cable that way would speed up my connection speed or is that still the same wireless? If that wouldn't improve the apparent lag, any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    How far away is your router ? Mine is 20 meters away.

    The vertical spacing is more significant at time than horizontal spacing due to the propagation pattern of a standard wireless antenna.
