PS3 media sharing

Ok, so I finally decided to get my PS3 set up to play music or movies from my PC.

Everything set up fine, with both WMP11 and I also tried Tversity cause I read alot of posts saying that it was better. Now I have no problems at all finding the music or movies on my PS3. They play great, video is good, audio is good.

The problem I am having is that every 5-10 minutes I lose my connection. I get the beloved "A network cable is unplugged", then like 10 seconds later "Local Area Connection is now connected" and it happens over and over again every time i restart the movie.

Anyone knows how to fix this?

It has something to do with your router. Are you wired or wireless?

Also, do you remember the error code? Sometimes there is one.

ps3's wireless adapter isn't known to be all that great, but every 5-10 minutes to lose feed is likely the fault of the router

Do you use Vista? Vista and the PS3 do not interface well. I went through hell to set mine up and it was still unreliable at best.

vista and ps3 steaming are easy as pie to set up.

media player 11, i should say, is easy as pie to set up.

i haven't had any problems, nor have any of my friends.

anyway, it sounds like you either have a loose or bad cable.

try another one.
