    Internet on PS3?

    Couple of questions for you guys. I have a PS3 in my house and wireless internet in my office building which is about 75 yards from the house. The office building is steel. I moved the router over by the window closest to the house and bought a netgear range max router. I can still only get about 30% signal on the PS3 and the internet is super slow. I dont want to pay another $27/month for internet in the house when i have internet so close by.

    My questions are is there a better or more powerful router for the internet? Is there and external antenna i can put on the PS3? Or just give me some suggestions. Thanks!

    Bridge the locations.

    You can buy the specific hardware or make your own via a second wireless router.

    A couple of online resources.. or Google for more.

    If you have the means you could run CAT-5 cable that distance... Then have a wired connection.

    Wireless Access Point (802.11g) DWL-2100AP

    that wireless access point should give you more power then what you are using right now, but if it still isn't cutting it as was previously stated you can turn it into a wireless bridge to extend the range for you
