I don't think the ps3 would contain the drivers for it to work. Most of the ps3 have wi-fi unless you got the 20gb version. Maybe you can install linux and get it connected that way but it is way easier to just buy an adapter-

The internet connection on my laptop is thru a sprint 3g usb mobile broadband device unfortunately tht is my only nternet connection, how can i connect me ps3 with this device


If you have a cross over cable you could connect your PS3 to your Laptop via the Ethernet port and choose internet connection sharing on the 3G device on your laptop, then just make sure the PS3 and the laptop ethernet settings are set to auto detect settings (DHCP).

Yes you can connect wirelessly to the internet with your ps3.

Minimum Requirements
  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
    Note: PlayStation 3 40GB / 60GB / 80GB / 160GB models ONLY (20GB model does not have built-in Wi-Fi connectivity)
  • SIXAXIS™ wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • A high-speed Internet account (cable or DSL) with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Router

    • Wireless router compatible with 802.11b or 802.11g Wi-Fi standards
    • Or an Ethernet (wired) router with a Wireless Access Point (WAP)
      You may need to open firewall port numberson your router to connect to the Internet.
      The PlayStation 3 will not connect to the Internet through the USB ports.
    //
  • Updated system software installed on your PlayStation 3
    Visit PlayStation 3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • Your Wireless Network Settings

    • SSID
      You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the PlayStation 3 scan results.
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
    • WEP or WPA Security Key
      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
    • MAC address
      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

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.

Connecting to 3g mobile broadband


Easiest way is to get a 3G router like a Cradlepoint CTR350. You can then connect either wirelessly or wired. Otherwise you need to enable ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on a Windows machine and run an Ethernet cable from your computer to the PS3

How to connect to 3g mobile broadband


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
