Unless the Virgin Mobile card you have is specifically supported by the PS3, you will not be able to plug it into one of the PS3's USB ports and have it working. The easiest AND most inexpensive method that comes to mind is to hook up your Virgin card to your PC, then have your PC share it's internet connection with the PS3. Microsoft has documented this setup best (assuming you are using Windows) http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing
Unfortunately the PS3 will not be recieving internet through this device, the USB connectors are set up to only work with PC or MAC specifically for that reason that gamers cannot use their Xbox or Playstation, and that is because Verizon offers a Wireless router cell phone data device which costs almost a thousand dollars, definately not worth it.
Try turning off upnp. Also make sure it is set to a wired connection. Turn off the router for a few minutes with the PS3 off, and then turn on the router, allow it to set up and then try the PS3 set up.
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.
I don't think the ps3 would contain the drivers for it to work. Most of the ps3 have wi-fi unless you got the 20gb version. Maybe you can install linux and get it connected that way but it is way easier to just buy an adapter-
i need help registering for a ps3 online account. i have tired repeatedly with different email accts and passwords and everytime it gives me the same message "sign in id and password is not correct" customer support is b/s! they tell me it will work eventually. anyone have any other solutions?
