    Well i can pull down around 6-700k/s wirelessly, which may be enough for most people, but its nearly 10times faster with a wire.
    My router is crap though, so you may get nearer 1000k/s.

    Best to spend a few days using it wired, then switch to wireless, if you notice a difference then you know which one is better for you, since i've noticed even with consoles nothing is black or white either.

    that is fast ! i really don't know how fast of a speed i'm getting with this DSL but i notice with the dsl it takes me awhile to stream a video online like youtube & downloading torrents on bitcomet is slow but playing games online so far is good for me

    TBH, i don't think you would see major differences between a wired or wireless connection, so you will be fine either way.

    for internet wi fi is ok but if u want to stream hd movies from your pc through the ps3 mediacenter then you need a ethernet cable from the router to the ps3

    I've never had any issues with PS3 wifi, maybe I'm just lucky but I've been running my ps3 through wireless for a year now and never had any issues playing online, that includes KZ2 with 32 player servers. Sometimes the connection drops when downloading big demos, but that only happened like 2-3 times, other than that great (sure not as fast as cable but it's more convenient).

    I'm using wifi on my PS3 (60gb), XBOX with wireless adapter (60gb) and my Wii ... have never had any problems with any of them, in fact my signal strength is always above 90% and download speeds are quick.

    some people are really hating on ps3's wireless. I know wired is better but ps3 wireless isnt bad too. When i do my ps3 wireless test my download speed is around 7-8mb and up speed is 2-4mb(I might getting this cause of having the highest speed internet option available from my provider).

    I found my wireless router next to my PC with 100% signal gave me 30-35% slower download speeds than wired.

    If your on less than a 10mb connection and you have a decent router then wireless might not be much of a downgrade, the more you go over that the more noticeable it will be.

    I had no idea so many did game online with a wireless connection, now for every bit of lag i get i will be cursing them lol.

    on paper ethernet would kick ass compared to wireless as i believe wireless runs half the bandwidth of wired? correct me if im wrong, but ive used both and havent really seen much difference in online play,

    Depends on ur connection, i can get about 7mb on wireless, but 50mb wired.

    If you only have 8mb then you prob wont see a difference.
