Go buy a nice big USB hard drive and put all your media on that.  Then you can pull it up without messing with the network.  If you just HAVE to stream the media to your PC, get a program like Nero Media Home, Tversity or something of the like.

If you have a full version of Nero 7 then you can use Nero Media Server.  It will setup a media server on the PC that you can access via the PS3.  I've tried it and it works, but I haven't yet tried it with the 2.10 firmware upgrade to see if the divix content will stream and play properly.
 
I'm streaming the video over a wireless connection, which should be fast enough that I don't get any problems.
 
There are other free media servers if you're not willing to shell out the $$$ for Nero. 
There's a guide on there of how to set it up for the PS3.
 
Let me know how it turns out.

Just use windoes media player 11, I use it all the time for media servers in the PS3. There is actually a good guide on how to set-up if you use Google.
