inFamous 2 just launched on Tuesday, and there was an immediate 107MB patch/'Additional Content' update.  PSN gets bogged down on Update Tuesdays as well since that is the day new content goes up in the store.

Here's a question: If your PS3 is only a few feet away from your router why not use a wired connection? At least try it, you may get better download speeds.

No. Because Everyone is accessing the Store that's why. Downloading their games, patches, and so on.

I have the same modem and agonized for too long to figure out the answer--

What worked for me on my older PS3 was to:

1) Go into the router wireless settings

2) Turn OFF the N mode

3) Go into the advanced wireless settings

4) Set the 54g mode to performance

My PS3 wireless speed now matches all the other devices in my home now. Seems as if the PS3 only responds to the G band and gets slowed down if the other bands are running.
