hi mleslie87, what is the make and model of your machine?

I would think the best way is to go back to the shopes where you bought the macihne and ask if they have an optional wirelss card for the machine.

oh oh did you know that I have streaming media from my PC to my ps3; i am totally the dude for this project.

I mean wireless would work... I have seen it work. I would perfer direct hard wire.. especially when your ps3 has a 10/100/1000 card built into it, pretty nice huh

Here is the beauty of the PS3...it will not show up in your network neighborhood...so you dont know if you have a connection unless you ping it.

I could tell you how to hook it up if your up for it. Its a lot of work but its stable.

May i ask you why you choose wireless over wired?
