I cannot get my media content from my pc to stream to my ps3
I have vindows vista home premium. It is a wireless connection. I can find my media server on the ps3 (although there is not subfolders or media listed). I believe all the settings needed to share media are enabled.

For streaming movies from your pc to PS3 over cross cable or WiFi you can use hps3mediaserver http://ps3mediaserver.blogspot.com/ - though note that it can be tricky to set up and HD videos will stutter as the LAN connection you use probably won't be fast enough to handle the required data stream.
reset your network and revamp the pairing between the two units- also if your pc has blue tooth you can pair them directly usind a adhoc style private network that is more effective for streaming from your pc than using an internet capable network because there is less traffic and signal interuption. The files would stream better because not only is there no unwanted traffic but the network its self would be a dedicated link between your pc and your system. Here is a HOW TO LINK ( its for PC to PC but essentially thats all a ps3 is) Ive set mine up and am loving it! So much better than my wifi internet router setup! And Yes you can still access the internet via pc and ps3 using the wifi- and simutaniously use the adhoc bluetooth network with little to no interference or lag
you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it. MY Components: -Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G). -Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop) -Linksys Wireless G/B Router -G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and -Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help? -When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks
You cannot transfer files to the Xbox 360, you can only stream the material eg songs or videos through it.
You can put the items you wish to view on a usb memory stick, but again you cannot save them to your XBox 360 only play direct from the device you use to store the videos or music.
You will also need XP media centre to use the media extender software, or even better Vista premium, XP home or Pro will not share the material with XBox because it cannot use the extender software.
