Check your wireless network name in your computer if it is wireless enabled.
Then go to your PS3. Go into the network settings and check if the wireless connection is detected.
When you check the network settings, make sure that ip and dns settings are set to automatic.
After that you would need to open some ports on the comp for your PS3 so that you can play online.
Also let us know the make and model no of your router so that we could tell how to open the ports on the router GUI.
Very first thing your PS3 should detect the wireless connection on it.

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

I cant play games online


You do not need a DMZ for ps3. jsut setup a SSID if wireless. Encrypt it (for your own saftly) and PS3 has wireless capablity. Just join the network with the SSID and WEP key and the PS3 will get an IP address. Also no port mapping is needed. Leave all port to auto open due to DHCP is going to get your PS3 a new ip every time you turn it on.

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.
