Re: problem connecting my ps3 to the internet

Ok guys ive found the solution. i have a sprint usb aircard and had the same problem for like 6 months and just yesterday i found out how to make it work.

1) connect laptop/ CPU to internet as usual*
2)go to control panel
3) go to network and internet connections
4)go to network connections
5) next tight click on you internet provider thing. and go to properties.
6) click on advanced tab
7) then just follow the instruction to make it a shared connection and thats all to it.

fyi: its probably going to lag alot if your not in a good reception area. other than that the lag is bearable.

ps: if you need more help, or if you just want to say thank you email me at :

Ip address failed

  • In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
  • Laptop with WiFi
  • Ethernet cables
  • USB cable
  • Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
    File Sharing
  1. Step 1 Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
  2. Step 2 Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
  3. Step 3 Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
    Connecting to a Monitor
  4. Step 1 Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
  5. Step 2 Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
  6. Step 3 Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
  7. Step 4 Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE

The connection to the playstation network fails

sounds like a problem with the wireless network card.

Go thru these instructions to get your ps3 to recognize your wireless router, if it doesn't work then you know that your wireless network card in the ps3 is bad:

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.

  1. connect an ethernet cable into your ps3 and the other end into your laptop
  2. Connect to the internet on your laptop
  3. go to control panel on the laptop
  4. go to network connections
  5. select "Local area connetion" and "wireless network connection"
  6. right click on one of them while they're selected
  7. click bridge connections
your ps3 should now act as if it was directly connected to the internet

Need help with ps3 internet hook up

The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
