You must have a wireless router, and set the networking prefs to auto join your network. the router should assign an ip address to the PS3. You will probably have to go into the router software through your web browser on your computer, and find the ip of the PS3, then put that address into the DMZ of the router. this will stop any errors with the NAT firewall.
Post back if you need help or have questions, I'll try walk you through it.

I want to connect my ps3 through my cricket broadband a600 modem how do i do that


Hi Cody,

My name is Ryan and I work on behalf of Cricket.

Cricket Broadband modems have not been certified for use with these types of devices/applications. Cricket's Customer Care does not troubleshoot these devices or applications.

Some users have found alternative methods in order to achieve this, but please be aware that online game-play may use a large amount of data that may cause account to use up its associated data amount until a user experiences throttled speeds that still provide unlimited internet for basic web browsing and email.

I bought a cricket broadband device for internet servoces and i tryed to hook it up to my ps3 via usb in the front of my ps3 and it dnt work what am i doing wrong?


Ok-here is your problem, the broadband card (any broadband car for that matter) needs to have drivers and software installed to function- And the ps3 does not allow you to install 3rd party software or drivers - The only way you can use a wireless broadband card ona ps3 is to install linux on your system and use your ps3 as a desktop PC, however the ps3's ability to run linux depends on the model and age of your system, newer slim units (from what I have read) do not support the "Other OS" feature of its predicessors , I own a first gen 80gig with reverse compatability, and run linux (its cool) however I havent had any hands on experiance with the newer systems. if you have a home pc you can buy a router (you have to buy one that supports USB cellular broadband devices-so do some research to make sure you get one compatable with your card) and once you have your card configured to the wifi router you can use the ps3 wifi and get online that way- Bummer I know but I went through the same ordeal using an altel huwawei broadband card

Ps3 internet problems


..Cricket Wireless and Ps3.....actually could never go together!!!!!!!!....Cricket do not support gaming systems to be frank!!!!......Cricket recently released a modem , Crosswave Wi-Fi hotspot modem.....and yes it is defenitely meant to set your needs!!!

If u are still adament on getting your Cricket modem work on Ps3, then we two problems to over come....out which we have already discussed one...(1).not all Cricket not being compatible,
(2)and the usage level that cricket gives!!!
Ensure that you have highest rate plan from Cricket ($60).......that will give you 7.5 gb of usage.
So that you would stay connected.
>Install the Cricket application on your computer (on the main computer) and get both computers connected to the router.
>now press Windows + R on your key board.Type in and hit enter on your key board.
Now right click on Cricket Wireless, you would get an option to share the internet, click on the same.It will give you a notification about password being stored and IP address of the computer being changed to 192.168.0.1...,give it your approval by clickin on OK button.
>Now its time for you to have a check with the other computers..you need to get on network connections and change their IP address to the same range of your main computer 192.168.01.02.
>One thing you cant afford to make a mistake on is setting the default gateway to 192.168.0.1.

Oh yes, you are gonna like this info!!!!!
Thank u!!!
