i want to play my ps3 online but i only have a mobile 3 dongle and a windows 7 laptop please can you help


Hi there.

I have a solution for you. Download the program i have linked below called connectiify. This program allows you to broadcast a wireless network using the wireless network card in your pc, which you are not using currently as your internet comes from the usb stick. Set up a network and connect to it with your PS3. If you have any further issues don't hesitate to post further.
