Added an exit application button combination shortcut (SELECT + START)
Added an internal "retry system" designed to reduce failed transfers for small files
New git for v2.0 and later: http://git-hacks.com/openps3ftp
General Usage Tutorial : Just a small tutorial on the basics.
Custom Firmware (tested on 3.55, but should work for all)
A network connection
Extract the pkg files from the archive and copy them into a USB drive
Connect the USB drive to your console and select the pkg file under the "Install Package Files" menu (found under Game)
Note: The pkg file that you select should correspond to the custom firmware you are using. For example: if you have installed geohot's 3.55 jailbreak, use the file "openps3ftp.geohot.pkg". If not, use "openps3ftp.pkg". Users of CFW 3.55 kmeaw can use any pkg.
OpenPS3FTP is now installed!
Launch OpenPS3FTP (found under Network)
Wait until you see text on the screen.
Connect to your console using an FTP client (such as FileZilla) with the IP address and port shown on the screen with user root and password openbox.
Now that you're connected, you can browse through and manipulate files on your console as if it were a folder on your computer.

Even with a 30cm cat6 crossover cable direct from the ps3 to the pc you'll never get close to 800Mbit/s (100MB/s) you'll tap out in around the 25MB/s (200Mbit/s) mark, maybe a little higher maybe a little lower, normal hard drives just dont work that fast, and the ps3's is particularly slow no matter what type of drive you have inside it.
As dave says though it's probably a wireless signal issue why your ftp speeds are so slow, i'd change the wireless channel if there are a few other wireless networks detected by the computer always by at least 5 though (the different channels overlap) so try 1 or 11+ instead of the default 6. other than that it's really either move the two closer together or switch to cable sadly
Wireless is crap on the PS3 because it has a bluetooth transmitter sat right next to it, or you have a wireless or something next to it running at 2.5 ghz, so before you look to deep into your setting remove phones, chargers, bluetooth head sets away from your router and PS3.
Mine is crap as well, wireless wise bud,like many others and it could be lots of things, like router issues, and the way windows works with QOS, stinks.
Unless you change your network settings on your wireless card to work at full speed all the time, having priority over all your network, to one connection like your PS3, then your wasting your time trying to make it run fast as it says on the tin, because windows and your router is trying to spread the LAN load across all your computers.
Use a cross over cable bud, so much faster than any other way. In some rear cases you can get 800 MBit /sec maybe the full 1000 MBit /sec using cat6 crossover cable. and of course having a 1000 MBit Ethernet card in your PC/laptop like most do now days.
