Re: conneting ps3 online through laptop using o2...
Are you connecting wirelessly or with a cord? if wireless, you need to make sure that you are selecting the same security setting as the connection that you pick in 'network settings'. If the option is 'none', then you need not worry about a password. however if it has a password, then you need to make sure that you type that password in (case sensitive). I had the same problem and this worked for me. hope this helps...please rate if it does....thanks. also, you shouldn't have to do anything with your laptop at all. try to use a direct line from your modem if you are using an ethernet cord.

The issue here is within the software downloaded, The fact you need to be didicated to the isp is the reason why this is happending, Now circket has a MIFI adaptor that will wokr but you need to use legacy wep key.
look for a net gear router and dont bother buying a N+ its not worth it for starters its a scam it even says on the news so get a net gear G wireless router and its roughly £35-50 but its worth it, buy it from amazon or from a argos or littlewoods site. im hopefully going to get wireless in christmas time, so ill hopefully add you some time soon you can contact me thru here for my name if i do get online
Im not sure which operating system you are using but you should able to go to network conections properties and set your connection up to be shared. If you are using windows xp or newer there will be a network wizard to help in a step by step options setup and you want to set it up to share your internet connection.
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.
Im very possitive you cant do that the ones you can do it with normal wireless broadband boxes (wi fi) you can use this wireless by going to your network settings and put wireless (also wired you choice) and then it will tell you to fill some things out with the internet cable with a wireless broadband you can wire it but the connection is better but that depends on how or were u use it wireless is still very very good for more questions (DGKME@yahoo.com) also myspace.
