Default Download frustration...

How are your video downloading going from the Playstation store? I left my PS3 on at the XMB for about 3 hours after downloading the Motorstorm content and my other video download was stuck at 39%. Why is it so slow!?

Wireless G going back to my router. Then 10Mb Cable download. It shouldn't be taking 3 hours to download a 611MB file.

That's my suggested solution as well. The DL stalls sometimes. If you cancel and restart, all is well.

Some one also suggested highlighting the current DL and go to it's Status screen and leave it there so you can monitor it. I do it but haven't concluded yet if it helps at all.

the wireless on the ps3 is garbage, when i first got my ps3 it wouldnt even let me update resistance cuz the download was so slow. then i unhooked the ethernet cable out of my 360 and connected it to the ps3 and the update took like 2-3 minutes. wired is the way to go bro. makes me wish sometimes maybe if they took out the wireless it would of been 20 bucks cheaper,lol.

Yeah, the PS3 wireless adapter has a few issues. Is this a persistant problem? I know it sounds odd but, you might need to ease your security restrictions on your router. Worked for me. Downloads are superquick now.
