My question comprises of 2 parts.
My NAS is not displayed under the video/audio/picture section of the PS3. However it is connected to my laptop and also to my Dell Streak and Sony Tab S (wd2go). My PS3 detects the media servers of Laptop (ps3ms and WMP) and of the phone and the tab (iMediashare) but not directly. Strangely though if i reboot my NAS with the PS3 on it is detected. But if i restart the PS3 it does not. I have tried already diabling/enabling Media server from network under settings. I also try searching for MS and all other except NAS are displayed. Now if i go into my laptop forlder i can view and play files from there but not directly. I hope u kinda get it.
When i use WMP/PS3MS to stream DVDrips most work fine but a few of them are choppy. I play them on laptop and they work just fine. I understand the wifi NIC of PS3 is pretty bad. Also my router is old. Its a Netgear WGR614v9. Should i plan on upgrading to a dual band N router to increase throughput or just wiring the system will solve the issue. To wire the PS3 i will have to change position of the router which i really dont want to.
