A mac, a ps3 and a comcast walk into a bar

I've been having an (infuriating) issue getting my PS3 to play nice with my Comcast cable internet. System updates and game patches, but not downloads from the Playstation Store, seem to be getting throttled. The download will proceed normally at first, but then will stall at some arbitrary point., and eventually time out.

Other than switching ISPs (which I plan to do eventually, but even if I order U-verse tomorrow, it'll be December by the time I'm up and running), can I do anything to fix this? My google-fu has returned a lot of results that suggest that proxying my PS3 connection through a PC would eliminate this problem. I'm down for doing that, but as of right now, my PC is wireless, but I have a wired iMac (Core Duo, 10.6.8) on the network. So... what's the easiest way to proxy my PS3 through my iMac?
