Question by Javier: PS3 and Media Server help!?
Every time I start my PS3, I don’t have any media servers. Sometimes I get lucky and am able to find my computer on it, but most times it says “No Media Servers found”. How can I keep my PS3 and computer connected permanently so I don’t have to keep going through this malarkey!

Step by step instructions please. Most answers I get to my questions are not very detailed, and I don’t know why after I post this, it will not let me add anything more, or even post a comment asking for more detailed instructions.. Thanks!

I am running Vista x64. Have Norton 360 & Firewall, Windows Defender, Panda Cloud and Tune-Up Utilities 2011. I have my PS3 connected through Wifi (don’t know if that helps any). It’s a CECH-2501A 160GB Slim.

    Here is a page that tells you how to set up Media Servers for the most common ones (I use WMP11 and TVersity only): http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=158357

    If a Media Server is not showing up, or keeps dropping, it is because the computer you are trying to access is off, or your signal is bad.

    Here is a tips page that can help with a wireless signal if you are having a signal problem: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx

    You must have your PS3 connected to a wireless network (Wi-Fi), or you can not access Media Servers (the PS3 can’t connect through wired connections like computers (PCs) can).
