Slow FTP transfer to PS3 using wired connection?!?!?
Yep that is my max speed as well no matter what I do. My 360 I get great speeds I know the ps3 side of the server sucks and we have sony to blame for that. Ill watch this.thread and maybe.it.can help me.
PS3 CECH-25001 Rebug 4.41.2 "Lite" 1tb iNt & 2tb eXT mM 4.40.00
Back online thanks to Primee for the legit PSID!!
Any reason why you can't connect your PS3 directly to your PC ?
I recently had a issue with transferring until i went and bought a Cat 5e network cable for my PC <--> PS3 (well, Mac in my case, but it works on Windows as well)….
I THINK the settings are like this:
PC (or Mac or Linux)
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
(i think thats how I have my settings)
Then use FlashXP on Windows (I use Cyberduck on Mac, not sure what linux would use)
type in 10.1.1.1 on the address, port 21 and set anonymous log on (no username/password)
I get 20-25Mb/s using my Cat 5e cable….I over-paid for my cable but it works and was well worth it….like $12 for a 7 foot cable (dont' go to OfficeDepot)
Router QoS activated? Check router's setting for more info..
or maybe just use a crossover cable..and directly connect your PS3 to your PC (custom made or ready made... but ready made crossover cable is very rare on stores, so you might want to ask the sales representatives to build one for you, and i know they can; since i dont have crimping tool here in my house so i asked them to make one for me with ofcourse with a little pay for their effort.. )
Manual IP configurations... please consult PS3 manual for more details (note: make sure you inserted a dead route for Gateway IP so it wont connect to internet and avoid ban from sony.)
i get average 10Mbyte/second over 100mbit network.... (sorry my adapter can only support 100mbit topology)
using filezilla and blackbox.... and open 2 connection for game with average 1000files... and 10 connections for 1001 files or more... (well it helps me transfer more quickly like, Sonic and Sega all star racing, which have more than 16000 files and I did finish the transfers within 30mins. unlike copying using usb device that would take me forever to copy those files.)
Nope, don't need a crossover cable, just a regular patch cable.

Strange, I'm using a cheap £1 Ethernet cable to join my computer directly to my ps3. and i am getting 10mb/11 per sec.
I configured Manual IP on my PC by going to Network connections, change adapter settings, then right clicking Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Then just look at the picture attached for pc settings (best thing is you can easily click on obtain a ip automatically to return pc internet settings to normal if using Ethernet cable for your normal internet connection).
Then on PS3 install your Blackbox FTP server (the 2nd one is stable) and enter these settings in your network settings, which is located in system settings.
Internet Connection = Enabled
Connection Method = Wired Connection
Speed and Duplex = Auto-Detect
Address Settings = Manual
IP Address = 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask = 255.255.255.0
Default Router = 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS = 192.168.1.1
Secondary DNS (Leave Blank at 0.0.0.0.0)
MTU = Automatic
Proxy Server = Do Not Use
UPnP = Disabled
Save (dont click on test settings now). Launch your FTP on your PS3 and it will give you a IP address to enter into FlashfXP which will be 192.168.1.2.
And then your in! Thats how i get my fast transfer speed. Directly connect your PC to your PS3 it will be better.
This will work for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Hope I helped you.
Thank you so much! I went from getting just over 75kb/s to almost 6,000kb/s after I did this.
Ok all... thank you for your inputs! It turned out it was a dumb careless mistake by me because I thought my pc is connected through the router via the ethernet cable but all along I was using a usb wireless that is behind my computer so I totally forgot that I was on wireless :P hihihiihihi.... now I just connected a ethernet cable and i'm up to 10MB/S

Get a gigabit switch. Here's a $20 one from Amazon:
Amazon.com: Medialink - 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch: Electronics
The PS3 supports gigabit, and most newer PCs have gigabit ethernet cards already in them... otherwise, a PCI gigabit card can be had for about $10.
Then you can connect both the PS3 and your PC to the gigabit switch, and run one more cable from the switch to your router. You will have gigabit speed between PC/PS3, and internet access for both, of course.
With Blackbox 1.2, I get around 12 megabyte/sec. average, peaking at up to 14MBps
Oh, and you can use the same old Cat5e cables, if anyone was wondering.
The connection between the switch and router needs to be a crossover connection, but all of these switches either have n-way support (auto-negotiation on any port) or a port specifically designated as an uplink port, so you should not need a crossover cable.
Another nice bonus to this setup: it is possible to use xlinkkai this way, without any further special configurations... because when running it, the PS3 will see your xlink dhcp server first. Sparing the further technical explanation... it just works without creating new, special connections between your PC and PS3.
Of course, if a router's built-in switch has gigabit, none of this is necessary.. but for some reason, that is still not so commonly included in routers.
