Dirt Slow FTP Speeds - Help!
Dirt Slow FTP Speeds - Help! –
Hey guys. When trying to FTP anything to my PS3, I get at best 500 kb/s. Trying to get jb folders with 4+ gb files to my internal PS3 HDD is impossible as it keeps timing out on me. And even when successful, a full game may take up to 14-20 hours. My connection is wireless. On my PS3, I'm using Blackbox FTP 1.2, though I've tried FTP-Light and don't get any better speeds. On my comp, I've tried both Filezilla and FlashFXP. No dice. I look at posts and see people easily getting 40-50 MB/s. I'm certainly not lacking in bandwidth or connection speed, so I'm lost. Help! Thanks in advance guys.
That's the problem.

If your router supports Gigabit LAN 10/100/1000 you will obviously get faster speeds. Mine doesn't but I get still get speeds around 25Mbps (not too bad). Theres still a big wait transferring some larger games but i recommend investing in a decent cable and your speeds will go up.
I dont have a laptop. My computer is upstairs. I'd have to daisy chain like 150' of Cat 6 just to get near my PS3. Is that normal for wireless transfer speeds though? And what about the timeouts? I can leave my PS3 running all night only to find out a 9 gig file times out two hours into things. Tips?
wifi sux.. try to move ur ps3 close to the comp and setup an adhoc connection... it will only take about 20min to transfer a -10gig- game to ur hdd... via wifi mine takes about a day xD
Survival, how do your get your games to FTP via WiFi w/o the large files timing out? Im not sure if it's related, but it seems like the problem occurs once the Blackbox screensaver kicks in.
I get 2mb/s on wireless with the PS3 close to the router. 12mb/s with a wire (from router to a 10/100mbps switch to PS3, gonna try from router to PS3 soon). Never had a problem with timeouts on wireless, I don't use it that much though, had to use it once because my switch stopped functioning.
