    I have the ethernet cable plugged into my mini and shares the internet over wifi to my iPhone, iPad, etc. I also share it to my Ps3 and even with 100% signal strength the connection is SLOW.

    It takes one hour to download a 1 gb file. With the ethernet cable plugged into the ps3 it would take a few minutes.

    What is wrong here, any ideas?

    Thanks for any input!

    Doesn't seem that out of the ordinary to me for a shared wifi connection.

    I suspect a shared Internet connection isn't going to be as efficient as having a wireless router. That said wireless inherently is much slower then a wired Ethernet connection so I wouldn't expect the same speeds.
