    Hello, i am now trying FTP with an ethernet cable for my PS3. It works way better then my wifi speed for the PS3, which is 2MB per second, with ethernet directly connected to my PS3 to my PC, i get around 20-25 MB per second. There are some issues, which i don't really understand, where sometimes if i am FTPing a game over, it will disconnect and say it failed due to "inactivity", and usually doesn't happen if i go one at a time with dropping files.

    Some posts/videos on Youtube/Reddit show that some people are getting speeds that reach up to 100MB per second to even above that, am i doing something wrong? does something have to be enabled, or do i have to get a specific type of ethernet cable for fast speeds?

    i'm afraid that's it,you need to remember ps3 was designed in 2005 and uses technology prevalent in those times.those guides are fraudulent,there's no way to get those speeds on ps3 LAN.

    about file transfer issues,it's mainly due to your network and number of files and simultaneous transfers.in my personal experience single transfer works best even when transferring a lot of small files,but you'll find dealing with anything other than ISO's is troublesome all way around.with ISO's you won't have issues that much with ftp.

    only faster way is to use external usb3 ntfs drive where typically you're limited to hdd's speed and mount games from ntfs drive.only caveat is that ps2 and psp iso's need to be on internal hdd,it won't work from external drive.

    FTP connection is very slow. I only got around 10-15 Mb/s while transferring Last of US by ethernet cable. USB stick is faster than FTP transfer in my opinion. But problem was i that was using FAT32 USB and Last of US was too big to transfer (around 35 GB).

    again,your setup and/or cable is the problem.

    I don't think so. I think my PC ethernet adapter (inbuilt) is only 100 Mbps. So best it can do is 10-15 Mb/s.

    I don't know the Tech Specs of PS3 ethernet.

    I don't know if PS3 give better speed with 1 GBps PC ethernet. If it does, than the speed can be improved a lot. So check PC/Laptop ethernet speeds.

    Can you link one of those movies? Maybe is megabytes per second, not megabits.Ps3 on current kernel can handle ~25mb write max.
    Set transfer mode to passive, and limit simultaneous transfers to 1 in your ftp client.
    If you still have issues, filezilla have option to overwrite only files that have different size. Is really useful while you have disconnecting problems. As you dont need to resend all files, because you not sure which are broken.
    11mbps is max for your network.

    I get confused in bits and bytes. I think 100 Mbps = 100/8 = 12.3 MB/Sec

    Is it right?

    Does an SSD in PS3 and Gigabit Adapter in PC improve FTP transfer speeds? Or 25 Mb/s limit will still hold?

    25Mb is kernel limit. 4.25 and lower can go ~32 Mb.

    Was just about to post this, it's why I rock 4.21 on my phat BC

    Sony rewrote a lot of the main functions after the 4.21 hack as prior to that everyone was locked at 3.55 for years.

    Actually you are still limited to the hardware on the PS3 which is USB 2.0. Your external could be USB 5.0 if it was out but still wouldn't reach faster speeds then the USB 2.0 port on the system. Just like how the PS2 can't use over USB 1.1 due to the ports which causes issues using USB loading

    i'm referring to actually getting games launched,not transferred to ps3.with ntfs external drive for ps3 and psX games you don't need to transfer them to ps3 at all.that way only transfer is from the PC to external hdd and if you'd use usb3 drive you're mainly limited by hdd's speed (theoretically you can use internal sata or even nvme/pci-e ssd and get even bigger speeds than usb 3 max theoretical but i doubt anyone would use that kind of ssd for external drive for the ps3).

    Ps3 has usb 2.0 you can conect device faster than Light on it but it will still operate on these slow usb 2.0 speed no matter what.

    The exact reason why the speed was reduced is unknown (otherway i guess someone would have tryed to fix it)
    I have 2 theories though
    -they reserved some bandwith for other stuff
    -they changed some hdd/fileaccess functions

    They changed fileaccess functions. I tried to reverse it, but then i realized that i have no idea what i'm doing. So i stopped. :D

    lol, uses to happen to me too, good try though

    Btw it could be interesting to enable access to dev_hdd1 and ftp something to it... and see if the speed is different
    If i remeber right dev_hdd1 is a fat32 filesystem
