Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 wont connect to internet

I live in an apartment that comes with wireless internet (wifi) and my computer connects to it by a wireless adapter. I want to connect my ps3 to the internet as well, so I tried connecting a networking cable to the back of my computer and my ps3 to try and share the connection but was unable to get the ps3 to connect to the internet. Does anyone know how I would get my ps3 to hook up to the internet?

Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3

To test your Internet connection use a LAN cable, connect to your laptop to your router and if you can get an Internet connection then most likely your USB wireless adapter is not configured correctly for connecting to your wireless router.
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I'm afraid your only option is to get the drivers one way or the other before you can connect to the internet or the network.

What I recommend is simply downloading the drivers from another computer that has access to the internet and transfering the driver package with a USB key or an other portable storage device.

Wont connect to internet

Secure is not there to re-assure you, its telling you the network is password protected & you need the password to connect. The wireless key will appear on the staus screen of your router. Connect using a wire, goto the router status screen & write down the wireless key, try to re-connect wirelessly.

How do I make my dlink dwa-130c wireless adapter work with xbox 360 for xbox live

Bridge the Connections. In other words, plug in the internet cable into the xbox, and the other end into your desktop or laptop. After this is done, select both the wireless and the local connections (go to your network connections) and right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon. Hit "Bridge Connections" and it should work. REMEMBER that the Xbox WIFI will turn off if the computer does.

No connection on wireless adapter... do i need a router... i live in an area with wifi

Unless you live near a "free" wireless access point example a coffee shop that has such.
Then trying to use somebody else's wireless could be considered an offense

If you have internet and a wireless router you can use that so that you don't have to have your computer or laptop near the modem or run wires.

My computer freezes when connecting WIFI adapter

Does this happen if you try connecting it into all USB ports? Try another USB port. Do you know if your USB ports are 2.0?
