the best thing to do is to buy a wireless router and a wireless network card for ur computer, the ps3 is wireless anyway so you dont need to buy anything for that, and theye will be no more wires going up and down ur floor

eh hardwire is better than wireless though. If you already have one wire going to the room, a network switch will do just fine.

I have this at home, and it works great. Run your one wire to a port in it, and then one out to your computer and one out to your PS3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833124016

It would be better just to buy a switch, and hook the cord already running up to your room to it. Then buy two more ethernet cords and connect your PC\PS3 to the switch.

If you can avoid wireless when your gaming, then do so, its always faster that way

guess i was one minute too late XD

ya, but the shipping is way to high, it is $277 shipping ground for about 12 items which is my full build and most things on there are $30 more than what they should be, then direct canada is free ground shipping. The prices are to high on newegg canada. http://www.directcanada.com/products...acture=NETGEAR will this hub work??
