Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I cant seem to get my ps3 to pick up my 3g mobile braodband connection...will a router work to connect the devices and if it does work will it slow down the speed of the broadband...If you have any ideas on how to get around this can u pleas elet me no as i an anxious to play on line games..This is the reason i got mobile broadband as i was under the assumption that it was compatible...Thank you....
Yes you can! After 10 days of trial and error I finaly cracked this problem on sunday. Since then I've had several lag free hours on COD4 and RFOM with smooth play and no dropped connections. Now I'm not a techie but I will explain the best I can. I use 3 mobile broadband. First open your Network Connections. You will see the 3 modem, ignore this for now. Further down you will see 2 ethernet connections, Local are connection, and 1394 connection. Right click one of these and Bridge the connection. Then open the properties of your 3 modem and under Advanced click on internet connection sharing. Install your ethernet cable from the back of your computer directly to the PS3. On your PS3 network settings search for the new connection. On testing it should work. Hey presto your online. I use win xp on my system and it usualy works fine. Sometimes you get a DNS error, keep retrying, if no luck, restart your pc, connect your 3 service and you should be good to go. Hope this helps, good luck

Why don't you try opening the disc tray of your PS3, putting your nose in the hole in the tray and press the close button. This will not help you to connect to the internet but it will be quite funny :)

1 go to manage network connection
2 right click on 3 broadbnd and go down to properties
3 in properties goto sharing and allow other networks to use that connection
4 on the playstation goto setup a network put all setting on auto the only setting you need to change is the MTU value it will be set at 1500 you need to lower it to any thing between 1400 and 1460 for it to work
