The question is on the title.....
PS3 is Gigabit
I certainly wouldn't say gigabit is overkill. when streaming 1080p I noticed a big improvment in response when using ffwd/rwd after upgrading from 100mb to Gigabit.

Blu-ray Network Media Players
can come with 1000 "addons/modules"
But (and this is the important bit) the CPU from most media players couldnt handle that speed. It will be faster than 100 but not super duper fast
Seems overpriced compared to a PS3...s'pose MKV support is it's selling point over a PS3.
then again the PS3 does have the 8-core CPU grunt to fully support it's gigabit connection.
Come on Sony give us native MKV support on the PS3!
Depends on if it downloads every frame or just the iframes.
Not many people buy off the shelf HTPC's though. I think a PS3 is closer to a media player/NMT than a HTPC is.
Depends what you use as the streaming server. Some server's get a lot more out of the PS3.
PMS will transcode virtually any format for the PS3 including MKV/FLAC/ISO (it will even stream movies from RAR files)and also adds Custom Cover art for movies onto the PS3 XMB.
I stream all my music to my PS3 in FLAC.
Other than NTFS support for external HDD's it pretty much gets round all the things Sony haven't got round to yet
Apologies to the OP that went off topic a bit.
ok guys do you think id be alright then if I am streaming regular avi files that have been downloaded from my nas through to a Netgear Eva8000 with a Dlink Router Dir-855 with out it jumping etc
so if the bitrate etc is alright wont matter weather im useing the wireless or wired option on the eva?
Be careful on this one, if you're streaming high bitrate bluray material (i.e. 1080p) then you'll likely find it impossible getting flawless playback over wireless.
