Re: How long does it take?
Well, normally, the PS3 is not 5 meters away but located 2 floors beneath and the W-Lan cannot go through the thick walls.
This is why I normally use – and you'll laugh – Devolo Plugs but I have been thrown out of the internet a lot of times (when playing Battlefield Bad Company) which is acutally the reason why I stopped playing it. But now the plugs work perfectly fine and are a very good and cheap way of connecting the PS3 to the internet although they're not THAT fast. 😀 All other options would have been way more expensive because I wuld have needed at least 2 W-Lan repeaters or an approximately 35 meter long Ethernet cable
But when I play online I often go upstairs with the PS3 because i don't want to use up my beamer's lamp that easily.
P.S.: Bandwidth Donor worked perfectly fine
