Is it possible to use a wireless n gaming adapter with the ps3's ethernet port?
i have a dual band n gaming AP plugged into a switch and run ethernet from the switch to ps3, 360 etc. the consoles just pick up the dhcp from your router
Does ps3 use N speeds? Or just b/g?
ps3 only does b/g, that's why he's inquiring about the adapter
fuck me for buying an N router. I was standing at walmart and I was like, man, that shit is mad fast son, and only 30 more dollars. Shit yeah I'll buy it. Then I got home and remembered my netbook only does g, now ps3 is only g as well. What a waste.
how long ago? just return it
So lets say I have both the ps3 and my comp hooked up through wireless n. Would I be able to stream 720/1080 videos to the ps3 without stuttering? The router is too far from both my comp and ps3 for hard wiring.
Which adapter are you using?
I stream to my PS3 wirelessly. This last seasons 720 rips of Top Gear worked perfect.
I streamed 1080p and it was fine, maybe slight stuttering? I'll have to check later. Transcoding on the fly does not work that well when my friend did it a while ago, but that could have been his computer as well.
Meh some day I'll have an N laptop probably. Then it will really matter...
N gets much more range than a G router I believe
Im on G with both the computer and ps3. Currently only streaming avi's and wmv's work. If I try anything in a mkv container it stutters
How do you stream MKVs? I had to download a program to convert all my mkvs to h264.
im using ps3 media server. Its pretty easy to setup. You just download install and choose which folders you want to stream.
So the issue there may be due to it on the fly encoding it?
you don't need to convert, just download mkv2vob
That's what I was using.
I doubt it since my comp is pretty capable to handle the transcode. Im pretty sure its due to wireless streaming. Im going to try out the wireless gaming adapter with a gigabit switch and see how that works.
not your comp, when it's transcoded on the fly i doubt it's recompressed, so the stream is probably too much for wireless g speeds
I have a hypothetical question:
Say you have a wireless N adapter and a G router or vice versa; is there any benefit whatsoever using an N component with a G counterpart? ping/range anything?
I could not stream 1080p stuff over G, I think 720 worked fine though iirc. Everything worked fine wired.
I streamed thank you for smoking last night, and my tv said it was 1080p, but I am not sure about that. It sure looked good... I'll have to check something that is confirmed 1080p.
Im on a wireless n router with a g adapter. Before when I was using a wireless g router my signal strength was low and would always drop. Now with the N router Im almost at full signal, its been great on wireless n.
Went home and streamed a confirmed 1080p movie, ran fine, I did notice some jittering at one point but not sure if that was my tv or the copy or the network.
