How can I turn-off Wi-Fi to force PS3 to use ethernet connection?
Hey - first time poster.
I'm trying to stream various content to the PS3 via-wi with only some success,
music, pictures, heavily compressed video are ok - anything else stutters.
I have set the wireless network to use the N wi-fi standard only - which forces the PS3 to stream media via it's ethernet port which is plugged into an airport express - it works perfectly.
But not all my tech is up to the N standard so this is only a temporary fix.
How can I disable the PS3's wifi? Sure I can turn the internet settings off - but that disable all internet/media streaming altogether.
The set-up is:
Macbook, Airport Express (N) - Ethernet - PS3
Thanks in advance for anytips - been trying to solve this problem for far, far too long.

I dont know why but i feel somewhat confused after reading your post. I have an answer for you and really hope it is the right one (if i understand correctly)
Go to network settings and switch to "wired connection"
hope that's the answer you were looking for

I agree with idone, very confusing post and his answer seems right to me.
Not sure why u are using PS3 with ethernet cable to an external wifi device though (unless it has better ariel and N is higher than ps3 specs - can't remember).
U'd be better off just cabling it properly directly to your router, or via a Powerline adapter over your existing mains cabling to your router - you will achieve much faster bandwidth this way.
Anyway hope Idone or my posts help ya!
