Okay so this was weird...
I get home, connect my laptop to my router via RJ-45 instead of wireless, and it CHUGS. I thought something had locked up, as I sat there for 10 minutes with nothing happening, Eventually I saw a flicker of video and audio, with it going frozen/silent again for another 7-10 minutes. I cut it after that, and tried another file. Same thing, or at least it seemed, as I didn't wait out the full 10 minutes or so.
I checked my ports, ran connection speed tests on my laptop to the internet which were fine, swapped RJ-45 cables, nothing seemed to matter. I unplugged, went back to wireless, fluid again. I restarted my router (WRT54GL w/Tomato firmware) as well as the PS3 and my laptop, plugged the cable back into the laptop & router, and it was still awful.
I'm able to browse through my file folders in the PS3 while "wired," but there's a noticeable delay in PMS beginning to attempt to prepare to get ready to stream (I exaggerate there only because it's so slooooow). Using PMS build 1.10.51, PS3 software version 2.6. On a Dell M1530 with Core 2 Duo T8300 2.4 ghz, 4 gb ram, Vista Home.
Attached is a zip file with logs from wired and wireless attempts.
