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.

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

Hi can i go online if i am using a pay as you go broadband o2 e160 stick if so how????????????


Yes you can go online by using o2 e160 stick.

Its a
Plug and Play technology you'll be able to access the Internet as soon as you plug it in.

You will just need to for the downloads you do or till the pay as you go package last.

Please Note: download does not means that you download some software or any files from internet.

Internet browsing is also counted in downloads, because when you browser pages, the files and images which gets downloaded to your system also contains KB, and it is accounted as downloads.

Using a notebook PC's internet signal to go online with a PS3


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

I have a verizon wireless broadband cardv in my laptop so how can i connect to my ps3 for online gaming?


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.

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.

Using a Mobile broadband service for online use.


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.
