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

SOURCE: I cannot activate my Dell Wireless 5720 Sprint

Hi,

There are three places I can think of.

1. In the BIOS (Boot up and press F2 to go into BIOS, find the wireless on/off setting)
2. Function (Fn) key + F2 to toggle between wireless / no wireless
3. A physical toggle switch on the left of the laptop next to the PCMCIA slot, signified by a wireless symbol (antenna with radio waves around it).
Hope one of these helps. If none of the above, try installing the proper drivers from the Dell website and try again.
Cheers.

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

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

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.

I have Dell Mobile Broadband internet through sprint. It no longer lets me connect to the internet. It says Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility: Error Connecting. Error 678: The remote computer did not respond. For further assistance, click help. I clicked help, and I couldn't figure anything out. The help section isn't very useful without being on the internet. The problem seemed like it happened slowly. For a few days, my internet had awful service. It has bars of service like a cell phone, and it showed no bars most of the time. I usually have about two. A couple more days of bad service, but then it started giving me the error 678 message. I would continue trying to connect to the internet, and it would eventually work, though my service was still awful. In the last two days, my service has been back to normal. I have about two bars of service without being connected to the internet, but whenever I try to connect, I get the error 678 message and I can no longer connect to the internet despite trying many times. I've tried restoring my computer to a few days ago, but I haven't restored back to a point that I remember my internet working, because that was several days ago and I didn't know if that was safe. I've also tried taking my computer to different places in my house to see if the problem had anything to do with bad service at my computer desk, but that didn't fix the problem. I haven't tried taking the computer outside of my house since it stopped working.
