    I have a PS3. And I use a TimeCapsule router (dual band) for my Mac and my PS3.

    The wireless speed connection in my Mac is great but it is so slow in PS3 when I try to download, chat online...

    How can I improve it?

    Yeah this has always happened to me. Is it a 'FAT' ps3 or a slim one. For some reason the slim one works faster on my Airport Extreme BS than my fat one ? But downloads always seem to take a long time regardless.

    My PS3 is the slim one, the new model (120GB).
    It is so slow...

    What could it be? I read somethink like NAT2, NAT3...I don't know what is it.

    No solutions, sorry. I use both a PS3 and 360 to stream videos off my Mac; and the same video, on the same server, on the same network always plays smoother on the 360. I've heard Ethernet performance is far better, but I only use Wifi (Mac is in a different room with Ethernet not an option).

    I bought a new Belkin router, and updated the PS3 firmware around the same time, and one of those seems to have made an improvement, but it's still quite poor for me too.

    I'd much prefer to use the PS3 for streaming media (it's so much quieter), but with the poor Wifi performance it's not really an option.

    Try Port Forwarding.

    I run an ethernet cable straight from my router to my PS3. It's almost as fast as my Mac.
