LAN cord or built in Wifi
Once you have all the wireless
settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the
x-box to the wireless network.
Now go to the settings page of thePLAY STATION
NETWORK SETTINGS ==> INTERNET CONNECTION SETTINGS ==> WIRELESS SETTINGS==> If you get confirmation screen displayed stating that you will be
disconnected from the Internet. click YES ==> select EASY ==> select WIRELESS==> SCAN ==> you will
see your SSID ( wireless network name)==> select the

You may have to contact Verizon for this so they can connect you. They will ask for such things as your computers' MAC address which can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the computer chassis. The MAC address is a unique identifier for your computer. Much like a fingerprint no two are the same. The signal strength that your computer is showing you is rather misleading; it is meant for notifying you of the connection between it and the wireless signal being sent from another device such as a satellite or wireless router, NOT that you are actually receiving data from the internet. There are some other parameters and internet protocols that your computer will need to be set up for, all of which your internet service provider (Verizon) will get established for you over the phone. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.
Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.
As far as downloading songs with the internet, yes, VCast is your only choice for Verizon.
However, you are free to sideload your .mp3 formatted files from your computer to your phone via a microSD card, or data cable, no matter where they came from.
If you're going to use a memory card, you'll need to insert it into the phone and format it (its under Menu > Settings > Memory usually). Then make sure that you only load the files into the music folder for them to work.
you are gonna be charged for each MB used, and honestly, it would be a terribly impractical approach.
Just to humor you, you'd do it as such.
Set up your laptop to run all the time. Have the Verizon card plugged in, and always active, and set to never drop connection. You'll now need a crossover cable, and you'll run the rj45 crossover from the ethernet on your laptop to the WAN port on your router. You'll then need to bridge the connections. Some versions of Windows support internet connection sharing; effectively doing the same thing. Now, you should have active internet.
Now, you're going to be charged per MB, you're gonna have a SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW connection, and you should expect $1000 phone bills monthly.
Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).
If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.
Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.
I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!
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.
