1 week in, and the PS3 has frustrated me more than the 360 did in 1 year.

    It was just a pro. The wireless attachment for the 360 was 100$+ the router that would have ran a total of 150$ together. I figured in the end i could get a 50$ router from ebay and be good to go, about 100 dollars cheaper.

    I agree with that.I can't speak for the cheaper models but after reading reviews on Amazon I bought a more expensive Netgear without breaking the bank.

    Have a PC,Laptop & a 360 running on it & at times another laptop.9 months of heavy use & it's never dropped a connection yet.Even works at the top of the garden.

    I wouldn't have a Belkin given to me after previous nightmares.

    I went with the D-Link WBR-2310. Supposed to be good for the ps3. Got it for under 50 bucks.
    I almost bought a 12$ netgear that I hear works fine too. But internet connection seems to be a huge problem with the PS3. So many stories of people losing connection every 5-10 minutes. The built in wi-fi sucks I guess.

    I don't care though. I'll run a cord, and get better connection if I have to. Doesnt bother me any.

    The Wi-Fi is fine. People have different experiences, because their are a lot of variables for the connection.

    Like I have said, I've had one for almost year and a half and never lost connection. And the wireless is as far away from the PS3 that you can get in our house.
