No need for a fix IP address if you have such a router. You put the PS3 MAC address in the correct field, and voila, your PS3 is in the DMZ.

I wonder why lan parties (especially those at game conventions) don't use wifi...???

Serious gamers will never opt for wireless, unless it's no other option.

I don't know, my PS3 is about 50 feet from my n-band router and I've never had any troubles connecting to it. Then again, my router does have uPnP enabled easily. I get online very easy provided my $hitty internet connection doesn't crap out on me. Damned DSL....

I have a linksys N router and I have never had a problem, matter of fact I brought MY PS3 across the street to my friends house and the darn thing still connected to my wireless network, we were able to stream a movie from my computer also. I couldn't believe it!

I've just upgraded to this router from a Netgear wgr 614v7. The difference I've noticed in having a router with uPnP and a far better range is astronomical. Go for the best wireless router available. It's worth it!

Yep the D-Link DIR-655 is the same one I'm using, I even have an n-Band card in my PC to take advantage of it. Damn thing works great, never have had to reset it even once.
