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.

Best,
Ryan

I want to use my cricket wireless modem with ps3


Hi,
You can connect with the PS3 2 ways >>>>>>

1, wireless, make sure that you have an internet connection first with a computer and that you know your network name and password (if you have one set up).
Go into the PS3 menu and scroll to the network config section, and set up a new network, where it says SSID this is the name of your network, for example SKY1234.
Then it will ask you for a encryption type, for example WPA or WEP and then your password, input your password and let the PS3 do the rest, if there is anything wrong it will tell you.

2, wired through an ethernet cable, again go to the network config section in the PS3's menu and set a wired connection, it will not ask you for your SSID or password as its a wired connection.

If you need anymore help or advice please feel free to post back.


Good luck.

How to hook Cricket USB Broadband Modem to my PS3


is it possible to connect my ps3 to the internet using cricket broadband modem?

I have no computer or cable and need to set up internet on my PS3


??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.

Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.

For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Can it be done?


All of the ps3 models support wired and wireless internet. All you need is high speed internet service, and a router (wireless router if you want wireless internet o.~) you plug the router into your high speed modem via ethernet cable. then you plug your computer and ps3 into the router with ethernet cables. your good to go! if you want wireless for your ps3 you need to use the wireless setup on the ps3. your done :)

Hope this helps.

Ps3 wireless


It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
