As for streaming subs, if the subs are hard coded into the file then you should just be able to press triangle and select them from the subtitles option. If they are not hard coded, then the SRT file has to be in the same folder as the video, and as you said they need to be titled (with the exception of the file extension) exactly the same.
Also the Media Server you are using to stream the video to the PS3 has to be capable of streaming "external subs" i.e. ones that are not hard coded into the video file.
I am not sure if Windows Media Server is capable of doing this, because I use PS3 Media Server exclusively for my streaming needs, if you are using PS3 Media Server make sure it is the latest version, cause I know it didn't always support external subs.
(it should already be set up as default, but if not,) on the PS3 Media Server you need to select Transcoding setting tab, then in the column select MEncoder, and make sure that "Automatically load *.srt/*.sub subtitles with the same file name" is checked. then you should be all good to go.
