    I was wondering if you can install the internet into my PS3 using the disk that Alltel gave me when I got the Huawei Wireless Internet Card. I used this disk to install the card into my computer, wouldnt it work for the Playstation 3?

You can't. For wireless connection on the PS3 you need to have a wireless router hooked up to your modem. Once you have your wireless network hooked up with your PC. You can give your PS3 access and the PS3 will scan for any available wireless networks. Google will help you more if you need more detail on how to set up your PS3 wirelessly.

I have a usb card for internet what do i need to but or do to be able for online


All PS3s have built in wireless, so you don't need an extra card. just connect to a wireless access point or hook it up with a ethernet cord. now if you are talking about hooking the PS3 up to the internet using the USB cord, than that is not supported.

How do i hook up internet to my ps3


you could bridge you wired connection to the ps3 simply go to your network connections in the control panel highlight your wireless connection then while pressing alt right click on the wired connection and select bridge. This will allow you to plug in your ps3 and hopefully obtain an ip automatically.

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop


Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Thanks

How can I connect my alltel internet card to my wii system


Unfortunately you cannot insert your USB modem into your Wii and have it recognized. Your Wii does not have the ability to operate plug and play devices in the way that your lap top does. The Wii needs to be hooked up to a LAN (local area network) via a wireless G connection from a wireless router or wireless capable modem, or hard wired to a modem or router with an ethernet cable (looks like a big phone wire).

There is a way to share your lap tops internet connection using an ethernet switch (depending on your operating system). If this is an option that you wish to explore and you have the necessary hardware, re-post asking how to set up a shared internet connection using a computer as a residential gateway. Depending on your operating system this can be done quite easily. You will need a computer with an internet connection (which you have), a 10/100 Ethernet switch, and two Ethernet cables. A switch is relatively inexpensive and the wires are as well.

I hope that this helps you with your problem.

Good Luck!
