If you've configured the FTP clients and your PS3 correctly it could be the same problem me and the few other people here have.
The server could be running into race conditions or other ugly stuff like that on certain configurations or consoles..
I get about 23MB/s when transferring, cable connected directly to PC (no internet then) in both directions. I use FXP.One, but admittedly I had to change it a bit due to the limited capabilities of PS3 FTP program. Also found if your connection fail for any reasons, the best thing is to quit the program and launch it again. Stopping service or re-connecting can make the PS3 hang.
I really hope we get a more stable version released. This one randomly stops working sometimes.
Why not print the required username on the screen when you start the app? Would be nice to get a manual password for those who share their wireless connection.
The best client I've used so far is FileZilla on Windows. Make sure to go into the settings panel and select the "fallback to active mode" option in the passive section.
Using a higher number of simultanious connections causes the PS3 FTP app to freeze up. Use no more than 2. If you can't get it to connect anymore, exit the FTP app on the PS3 and open it again, if that doesn't work, then restart the PS3.

Maybe someone can help me with my Cat5 lan from PC to PS3 slow transfer problem.
I have a dell 1525 with marvell yukon gigabit nic with Windows 7 Ultimate and tap out at ~1.3 MegaBytes per second or 13 MBit. This is too slow, as I can achieve around 1MB over wifi.
Is there a setting on my nic that I have to adjust or something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Update: I have connected both PC and PS3 to router via ethernet and set it up as post #277 indicated and now I am seeing 10 megabytes per second. This is 10x faster than what I was seeing on wifi, so I'm much happier now.
