Are you using a router to connect your computers to the internet? Your router holds all the info for your LAN. You can get into the router software via your web browser, and find the ip assigned to the ps3. Next put that ip into the DMZ of the router. POst back if you have questions so I can walk you through it.

    Unless the dongle has software that comes with it to configure port forwarding or setting a DMZ, I would suggest looking at your networked devices and see if you have any firewall set up for them. If you have the PS3 bridged or something in order for it to share the dongle on your computer, that may be something to look at. As I don't know exactly how you have this rigged it's difficult to tell. Can you give more detail? Also have you talked with T-Mobile? Maybe there is something on their end they have to do.

    A DMZ is the De-Militarized Zone for an I.P. Address that is on your Local Area Network. Its normally only found on routers, since they can be used to control, and assign I.P. Addresses to devices you connect through it, to get to the internet. Without a router you have no NAT Firewall, just whatever windows has, and third party antivirus/firewall that you install.

    By the sounds of it, you don't run a network, but a single computer with a mobile broadband dongle. Connecting the ps3 through the computer to get to the internet isn't optimal, and as you have found can be problematic. I'm guessing the dongle is usb, and probably not the type of thing that can be attached to a router to provide connection to your ISP. Is the dongle able to be direct connected to the PS3? Or is it unrecognized?

    Are you connecting a PS3 via crossover cable, to a computer with a usb bluetooth dongle, and having it connect to the internet over a cellphone? Cause that is what it sounds like.

    After looking around the net a bit, I expect that even though you may be on a 3g network, the connection problems and intermittent signal loss from your cellphone are really not optimal for what you are trying to do. I really think you should talk to T-mobile and see what they can do for you.

Why do i keep getting singed out all the time

Do you have a PC you can check your speeds from? PSN really needs about 10mbps to function correctly, but I have known them to work on a slower connection. Are you running it wired, or wireless? The wireless radio can sometimes kick you out if it sometimes stops transmitting, or you are out of range. I recommend this site to check your speeds.

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.

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

Connect my ps3 to my mobile phone for internet access

You'll have to connect your computer to the Internet and then share that internet from the computer to the PS3. Hopefully this will get you started. You can google for guides. It's not hard but it will be a pain that first initial time.

Connecting to 3g mobile broadband

Easiest way is to get a 3G router like a Cradlepoint CTR350. You can then connect either wirelessly or wired. Otherwise you need to enable ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on a Windows machine and run an Ethernet cable from your computer to the PS3

How to connect to 3g mobile broadband

Yes you can! After 10 days of trial and error I finaly cracked this problem on sunday. Since then I've had several lag free hours on COD4 and RFOM with smooth play and no dropped connections. Now I'm not a techie but I will explain the best I can. I use 3 mobile broadband. First open your Network Connections. You will see the 3 modem, ignore this for now. Further down you will see 2 ethernet connections, Local are connection, and 1394 connection. Right click one of these and Bridge the connection. Then open the properties of your 3 modem and under Advanced click on internet connection sharing. Install your ethernet cable from the back of your computer directly to the PS3. On your PS3 network settings search for the new connection. On testing it should work. Hey presto your online. I use win xp on my system and it usualy works fine. Sometimes you get a DNS error, keep retrying, if no luck, restart your pc, connect your 3 service and you should be good to go. Hope this helps, good luck
