Re: verizon card with ps3

This can be accomplished by using a network cable called a crossover cable (cat5 type). This cable is used to connect two computers together. With everything off just to be safe connect your computer to the PS 3 using the LAN ports on each. Start the computer and get online with the um150 then turn on the PS 3. In Windowsxp go to start, programs,accessories,communications,
network setup wizard.Run the wizard. Click next twice and in the third window that pops up you should see Pantech usb modem which is the um150 and local area connection 1 for your computer.
Mine is realtek Ethernet NIC yours may be different but look to see if you have an ethernet connection with NIC in the description. If the box says that a cable or cables are disconnected click the ignore disconnected radial button and click next. In this window choose the top radial button that says
this computer connects directly to the internet. Continue through
the wizard, you won't need printer sharing, and it should have automatically checked the correct connections to be bridged. What this does is bridge the um150 with your NIC through to the PS 3 by the cable. Click next and name your computer and network, you can leave the defaults if you want. Click next to set up the network. At the last window you don't want to set up any other computers so choose the radial button that says "just finish the wizard" should be the last one. The downside to this is that the um150 uses a different IP address every time you connect to the internet so you will have to go through this procedure each time you connect. Now go to the PS 3 and network settings and choose check for wired connection and it should connect.

Re: verizon card with ps3

Enable internet connection sharing from your laptop after disabling DHCP on your router. Once you do that, your PS3 will grab an address from your laptop, rather than the router. Try connecting then....

My PS3 connection isn't working very well. Please help me!

If you found speeds that low,do a speed test on something else in the same area of the house(laptop) with the same site simultaneously.If you don't get a similar know it's the PS3.If you do get a similar esult,retest the laptop closer to the router.If the laptop is now OK,then you've got some interference somewhere.If this is where your diagosis took you,consider running an Ethernet line from the router to the PS3.If the PS3's Wi-Fi is the trouble,you can get an Ethernet adapter that will run through your coax wiring to the router from Verizon(called a NIM-Network Interface Module).This would be a great option if you have a coax outlet where the PS3 is.Try running the PS3 with an Ethernet cord first to make sure it's just a Wi-Fi issue in the PS3 and not something that is affecting both.

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.

Ps3 help

the ps3 has a built in wireless modem. if you do not have a router, you might not be able to connect your ps3 and laptop at the same time.

turn everything off.

now in this order, turn on your ps3 and connect to your wireless verizon modem after it comes back on. do not turn your laptop on, since your modem probably will not give out two dynamic addresses. does the ps3 work now?

Connecting my PS3 to the internet using a 3G Verizon Broadband

Unfortunately the PS3 will not be recieving internet through this device, the USB connectors are set up to only work with PC or MAC specifically for that reason that gamers cannot use their Xbox or Playstation, and that is because Verizon offers a Wireless router cell phone data device which costs almost a thousand dollars, definately not worth it.

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3

Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.

Laptop with broadband internet and router. how to connect PS3?

This is what you have to do:
First, disconnected the router form the PS3.
Connect the router to the incoming cable and setup from the laptop using the setup wizard.
Once you have connected to the IPS then disconnect the router, connected the PS3, then the router.
