How would i use dial up connection to connect my playstation 3 to internet?


Why would you want to? Dial up is so terribly slow for just Internet browsing; I imagine for playing games online it'd be even worse (if it even lets you connect with such a slow connection).

That being said, you obviously can't direct connect dial up to the PS3. There isn't a port for that. Instead you'll have to do a work around involving a PC/laptop with a dial-up modem/port and an Ethernet port on it. You'll also need and Ethernet cable.

Basically the plan is to connect to dial up using your laptop/PC, then share the connection on it from the dial-up port to the Ethernet port. The PS3 would then connect to the Internet through your computer. Not ideal, but then again having only dial up isn't an ideal situation to begin with.

Here's some specific guides on the matter:

Here's some generic guides on ICS (Internet connection sharing) on Windows:

Here's a link for sharing Internet connections on a Mac (if Mac's even have a dial-up port, I honestly don't know how old you'd have to go to get one with it):

Best of luck!

I have a PS3 and I would like to connect it to the internet through my laptop. I have Vista as an operating system, a Verizon 3G dongle, and a CAT 5 cable. What do I need to do to solve this problem?


Well first of all do a wireless search and see if your PS3 recognizes your laptop as a hot-spot if not you can't make it work. If you have a usb Verizon hardware you should be able to plug it into you PS3 and use it that way that's if you PS3 sees it plugged into it.

How do you hook a PC laptop to the PS3 for installing upgrade info?


First off you will need an ethernet cable to do this. Depending on what OS you are running on the laptop, there are different ways to get to where you need to know. So I will give you the basics, which should get you connected.
On the laptop you need to get to your (network sharing center) vista and win 7 you go to (control panel) select (network and Internet) then select (network and sharing)
On the left hand collumn select (change adapter settings), fingd which connection to the internet your laptop uses and right-click it and select (properties).
Select the (sharing) tab and then check the box that says (allow other network userers to connect through this computer's internet connection). Then select ok and restart the connection.
After this procced to connect the PS3 to the laptop via ethernaet cable and then use the PS3 setup wizard to enable the connection.

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).
