PC to ps3 streaming.

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

And internet connection.

Bought my self a LED TV a couple of days ago and wanted to set up my ps3 for streaming from the PC, as well as internet access. So I bought a small network splitter yesterday, connected it into the computer, connected a network cable from my ps3 to the splitter and vice versa with the network cable from the modem. Here lies the problem. As soon as I start the ps3, The computer loses the internet connection, which results to no connection to the console. When the console is turned of, the internet is back on the computer. I'm not a computer/network genius so I can't figure out where the problem lies. Could it be the network card on my computer that is unable to run two devices? Can it be solved by buying a small hub with 3 inputs or is it basically the same as the small network splitter I already have?

    > **Posted by Amen** > I personally use Vuze to stream stuff from my pc to my ps3. But I still need to connect the ps3 to my computers network,and that's what I'm having problem with. Will it work if I by a simple 3 port hub? Edit, this one should work right? There're three female ports so, 1 cable from modem to the one on the back and 2 cables on the front to PC and ps3.

    Oh, I haven't a clue. I have a wireless router so it just connects through it.

    Some cheapo gigabit ethernet switch would do the trick. Also are you using PS3 Media Server or XBMC or something else? Just curious.

Haven't really used any media server since I'm having problem setting it up. Was going to use media player 11 but then amen told me he used Vuze so I think I'm going with that.

Just make sure you use something other than the PS3 itself. Sure it'll stress the pc but PS3 has lousy support when it comes to modern media formats.
