To quote, roughly translated: Onishin, a member of our forums and developer, today gives us a nice homebrew named OpenPS3FTPsplit and is a mod source code of version 2.3 of OpenPS3FTP, the famous FTP server designed by jjolano.
This program has a unique feature that most practical of the split files larger than 4GB on a transfer via FTP. Understand by this that if you want a transfer of these files on the internal hard drive of your console or an external hard drive (FAT32) that is connected, you simply start the copy and the software will automatically split it.
But to avoid splits that you close all your files that you transfer, which could be annoying in the long run, it divides the files in question in each part of 4GB only if the following condition is met: the files you want to transfer must be copied to one of the following destinations (according to it, the homebrew will use the naming conventions or Cobra Multiman):
/ dev_usbxxx / BDISO
/ dev_usbxxx / DVDISO
/ dev_usbxxx / PSPISO
/ dev_usbxxx /

- Added XMB exit event handling (thanks facanferff)
- Cleaned up and shortened some code
- Fixed up the last modified date in directory listings
- Added an option to disable the login checking (at compile time)
- Fixed a small bug in passive mode which made the transfer fail
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.
