The computer needs to transcode the file which takes CPU cycles. If the computer is being used, it can't transcode properly sometimes.
Next, the computer must send the data on to the router (or directly to the PS3 if set in AP mode) which requires a certain amount of bandwidth between the computer and router to maintain a smooth video. If wireless N, not a problem. Ensure the connection is fine between the two by checking the wireless signal strength at both ends (routers will sometimes have this status for you. If not, your router sucks and you should see if you can change the firmware to something more open source that will enhance its capabilities).
After that, the router is required to forward the packets that it received from the computer on to the PS3. Now, streaming will sometimes allow for some overhead (buffer) in case the connection gets congested. As it turns out, your connection isn't maintaining its buffer. So...
I recommend increasing the cache size in your PS3 Media Server settings. On top of that, ensure your system is defragmented. If that doesn't help, try directly connecting your computer to the router and see if it still happens. If so, we've absolutely eliminated the possibility of it being wifi (or wifi settings) related. If not, then it's probably wifi related.
