Your Wireless Router/speeds/features
The Codecs/file type of the movie
The program your using to stream
Out the gate you should put your ps3 to a static IP, in the DMZ for your router. Google that shit bitch what do I look like?
get yourself a decent router, and update the firmware on that motherfucker. Doesn't nessicarily have to be an expensive one. Some older routers work good, just check the speeds it can handle.
