Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Using a notebook PC's internet signal to go online with a PS3

I own a PS3 and would like to use my laptop's internet connection(has a built-in Sprint Mobile Broadband Minicard) to take my PS3 online for gaming and software updating. I'm guessing someone has to make a wireless router(or some other device) that could make this possible. Can anyone recommend a product that will do this?

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

My laptop works using my Belkin router, but my desktop will not connect to the internet


hello

your notebook has WiFi, which is radio frequency internet, it transmits and receives radio signals (frequencies) . Your desktop, most likely, does not support WiFi on its own , so you need to use RG45 cable , ethernet cable to be connected from your desktop to the router.

So in other words thsi is what happens with your notebook and the router.
  1. your notebook has built in wireless adapter which translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna.
  2. A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. The router sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection, to your modem (supplied by your Internet Service Provider)
The process also works in reverse, with the router receiving information from the Internet, translating it into a radio signal and sending it to the computer's wireless adapter.

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.


you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.

My playstation is glitching when i play online


Sounds like wireless signal or router throughput...
Are you connected wirelessly or using an ethernet connection? Do you have any other devices sharing the internet connection? If you go to system settings in the XMB and find the wireless settings if you are using wireless you will be able to find out the quality of the signal. If you are using ethernet you might have to check the settings on your internet router for which you'd be best using a PC/laptop connected to the router...

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.

Thanks

Can't go online with a ps3 by hooking it up to a laptop. I've hooked up an ether net cable to the back of a laptop that has a built in wi-fi connection but my ps3 will not hook up to the internet please...


ok, first, check your laptop to see if it is connected to the internet. If not, create a connection (go to control panel, then network connections, follow steps) then, go on your ps3 and go to settings, scroll down to network connections, then press x on internet connection settings, pess ok, choose easy, etc. as long as your pc has a connection to the internet, and you have high-speed internet (not dial-up), you will be able to go online.

How to connect to the internet without the usb


When you get the USB device from Sprint, you should have gotten a driver CD. Run the driver CD first, plug in the device when youre prompted to do so, restart the computer if youre asked to, and launch the Sprint connection program. It should establish an internet connection. Once thats done, then launch Internet Explorer and surf the web.
