I have been trying to research as to why my PS3 downloads are so slow all of a sudden. I have the origonal Fat boy 60gig PS3. I switched from ATT to comcast (xfinity) recently. I changed their stupid modem to a bridge and bought a netgear router than I had set up at my parents when I lived there.
Using speedtest.net on my computer/phone and other computers my download speeds are anywhere from 30-35mbps. If I download torrents on my computer (even wirelessly) I can get upwards of 1meg/sec.
My PS3 takes about 20min to download a 20 meg update.
I had comast previously and never had this issue...with AtT I never had this issue either.
I have all the ports forwarded and opened on my PS3. I have a static iP and even set up a DMZ.
Anyone have a clue as to what could I do to fix it?

I am having the exact same problem and I have a similar connection speed, big files would download withing a few minutes before now they are taking forever.
Sometimes the download speed seems ok for a few %s but then it slow right down.
What's going on?

My download speeds seem to be back to normal now, the only thing that I did was to add my PS3 for port forwarding on my router, I don't know if that's what has made the difference.
Before it was taking 1 minute to dowload 1MB -__-
Now is back to downloading fast, around 80MB per minute \o/
