My PS3 is plugged into my FiOS router with a Cat5 cable. It gets an IP on my network (192.168.1.85) fine and is able to access a webserver on my lan fine. It also has no problem connecting to the Internet. However, it doesn't see either of the two laptops on my network that serve as media servers. What's weird is this: if I connect the PS3 to the router via wifi, it finds both laptops as media servers. I tried setting the IP statically via DHCP in the router, so the wired connection is 192.168.1.85 and the wifi is 192.168.1.86 and that didn't do anything. I also tried giving them the same IP but same issue. There's no firewalling going on in the router and the laptops are configured to allow all traffic from 192.168.1.0/24.
- Media servers show up when PS3 is connected via wifi
- Media servers don't show up when PS3 is connected via cat5
