I had that issue with my Samsung TV, but switched to streaming everything with AirVideo instead of using SneakerNet to move the files to the TV.
I guess I'm just lucky. My PS3 and TV just happen to be in the same spot where the fiber comes into my house, so my network gear and my A/V gear are right next to each other.
My PS3 and NAS are plugged into the same switch.
