3G USB Modem internet not working on PS3

If I place the 3G USB Modem into my 60GB PS3, the PS3 just doesn't detect it. The light on the USB Modem flashes but even if I go into Network Settings, then into Internet Connection Settings and then select any of the options there it just, in the end, says that it doesn't detect any device, or something like that.As a side note, I have a Compaq laptop with Windows Vista (just in case).

Erm...cant you just plug in your 3 usb to your pc and connect to your ps3 via the ethernet cable? that should work...but i think the main issue is that it might be too slow to play online...either that or you play online for ten mins and then your done for the month lol

When you plug in a 3G USB modem into the PS3 which runs game-os, you should see a message saying it is an unsupported device. As game-os is a closed operating system from Sony, they must make change to their firmware to handle such 3G modems, so you need to ask them to support these modems. If they ever do support 3G modems, expect it to only work with Sony branded 3G phones or modems.
If you have other-os on your PS3, then you could load the appropriate packages to support 3G modems in you linux distribution of choice - but Sony have now removed other-os from PS3 firmware 3.21 and later - thanks for nothing Sony.

The laptop can not detect device when you try to connect the GPRS 3g


Try connecting it to a different port.
Also check whether your USB ports are working using any USB devices.
If the ports are working and the 3G modem is not getting detected, then you should try replacing the modem.

My usb modem [lemon 3g] does not get detected. when i plug the modem it does not show anything i.e usb icon detected hardware etc. when i clikc on cmy computer also it does not show any connection why is...


First, check for the power source, there should be a light indicator on the panel of the modem, else, power is a problem, check your adapter/power cable. Next, is use USB cable/USB port, try to use other USB cable/USB port. Another option is to check your Control Panel - Device Manager, see if there is a USB Modem currently installed. Remove/delete the device from your Device Manager. Going back to Control Panel, select Add Hardware. If still fails to detect, your Modem is dead.
Good luck.

The internet connection on my laptop is thru a sprint 3g usb mobile broadband device unfortunately tht is my only nternet connection, how can i connect me ps3 with this device


If you have a cross over cable you could connect your PS3 to your Laptop via the Ethernet port and choose internet connection sharing on the 3G device on your laptop, then just make sure the PS3 and the laptop ethernet settings are set to auto detect settings (DHCP).

Connecting my PS3 to the internet using a 3G Verizon Broadband


Unfortunately the PS3 will not be recieving internet through this device, the USB connectors are set up to only work with PC or MAC specifically for that reason that gamers cannot use their Xbox or Playstation, and that is because Verizon offers a Wireless router cell phone data device which costs almost a thousand dollars, definately not worth it.
