I'm working on connecting my PS3 slim to my laptop to stream movies. I had my tabletop computer working in that capacity but through my router so 720P movies pixilated. I'm trying to connect my laptop directly to the PS3 through the ethernet port but it is not seeing my laptop/media server. I ran a CAT6 cable from my laptop's RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port to the ethernet port on the PS3 but it's not working. Any thoughts? By the way I'm using an open source media server that kicks butt and is designed specifically for Sony, it's called serviio, works like a charm. Anyways I'm trying to get this figured out so I dont have to involve a router. I'm going on vacation and it would be great if I could figure out how to make this work so I could set up movies for the kiddos in the hotel room.
