    today I spent a day trying to figure out why my wifi sucks at the house mean while my wife was paying with the ps3... I spent a day on google tweaking settings in my router and on my mac book which was improving speed little by little with most tweaks, notably changing dns servers and disabling ipv6 and changing channels on my wifi but i still had a bad connection...turns out the ps3 causes the problems i ran into.... it might be somthing to do with the wireless controls on it but about 5 minutes after you turn it off the computer will operate fine on wifi, any one else had problems with this?

    If your PS3 is hogging all the bandwidth, custom firmwares for the router Tomato and DD-WRT can help conduct the traffic.
    If you don't like them, they're easily removable back to default firmwares.
