Can anyone help me on how to do this please! I connected the host to the USB port and jog through settings and bluetooth devices and select keyboard and mouse. Scanning forever and never found the device...Please help! what did I do wrong?
Look in the instruction manual for the Bluetooth mouse. There should be a section on 'Synchronizing Device' or something like that. There usually is a procedure to prepare the bluetooth device to be synched before it will operate properly.

you can try doing a factory reset on your modem/router also try to hard wire it and see if that gets the PSN to pass, you might even have to set your PS3 up as a DMZ host in your modem/router configuration this will put your PS3 outside the Firewall which can sometimes fix the problem. You can also ty this:
On your router settings, open TCP port 80, port 443, port 5223 and UDP port 3478, port 3479, port 3658.
Disable the media server connection option found under the Network Settings menu option on the Playstation 3.

In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
Laptop with WiFi
Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connection Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
Connecting to a Monitor
Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE
here is the most simple way using your computer modem
Yes, you can setup with just a modem for broadband access and
still play online with the PLAYSTATION®3. You will not be able to
access your PC and PLAYSTATION®3 online at the same time. The following
steps need to be taken to play using just a modem:
Unplug the power cord and the USB cable or Ethernet cable coming from the modem.
Wait two minutes and then plug the power cord back in which will reset the modem.
the straight through Ethernet cable and run it from the LAN port on the
back of the PLAYSTATION®3 into the ethernet port on the modem (you may
need to unplug the Ethernet cable already in there. Also, make sure a
USB cord is not connected to the modem as this will cause your
PLAYSTATION®3 not go online).
Turn on the PLAYSTATION®3 to
log into the PLAYSTATION®Network (you may need to log in manually if
your settings are not set to automatically login). When you are done
with your online activity with the PLAYSTATION®3, turn off the
PLAYSTATION®3 (refer to the Quick Reference manual) and then follow

your modem as you did before my unplugging the power cord for two
minutes and then replug the Ethernet cable/USB cord coming from the PC
to gain internet access onto your PC. (Please note that this step can
be skipped if you do not want to have internet access on your PC at
this particular time or do not have a PC at all.)
When you would like to log back onto the PLAYSTATION®Network please follow the steps beginning at the top.
The modem setup should appear like this: From there, please follow these instructions (from SCEA):
Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, and then press the "X" button.
"Internet Connection Settings", and then press the "X" button. When a
message stating that the Internet connection will be terminated is
displayed, select “Yes”, and then press the "X" button.
Select "Wired Connection", and then press the "X" button.
Select "Easy" or "Custom" and adjust settings as necessary. Follow the on-screen instructions to adjust the required settings.
You should always choose Easy before going onto to adjusting the Custom
settings. In most cases, the Easy settings will work and are set

Or an Ethernet (wired) router with a Wireless Access Point (WAP)
You may need to open
firewall port numberson your router to connect to the Internet.
The PlayStation 3 will not connect to the Internet through the USB ports.
You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to
broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the
PlayStation 3 scan results.
If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
WEP or WPA Security Key
If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted)
from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.

If not find a wireless board (I sell them sometimes on ebay). It is really easy to replace.
Contact me at email@example.com if interested in purchasing a wireless board.
All I could say is have a person who is really smart with technology take your Ps3 aapart and check the diodes on your fuse board (green plate that has a buncha little things on it). check to see if your diodes could be burnt or possobly loose. unless you can take it apart but have troubles putting it back together i wouldent try it. have a really smart person fix it. not a scientist or some guy from a company...justi make sure they no wat they are doing. I messed up my USBs by having a short in my keyboard. it tells me to plug in my controler but It wont read my controlers. theres a 92% chance its somthing wrong with my USB ports. I hope this helps you out.
There are no games currently support mouse and keyboard. The only future release that has been announced so far that apparently does have it as an option is Unreal Tournament 3. I suspect that you won't see many games that support it though.
