    Use your laptop to share the internet with the ps3. Connect to the internet on your laptop. I don't know what your operating system is but if it is vista or xp it is really easy. Just go to Start then Help and support. Type in share internet. Follow the instructions. Turn of your computer. Hook a lan chord from your laptop to your ps3.

    Turn on your laptop and connect to the internet. Turn on your ps3 and change the settings to wired instead of wireless. Let it config everything manually. It should connect.

I want to no how to fix the internet connection. It is very lagging and does our every minute


Not enough information are you using wireless internet connection via a wi fi router via a broadband connection like DSL or Cable. Your play station may be too far way from it to get a reliable signal. you may need a wi fi repeater or a direct ethernet cable from your router to your play station. I am testing out a powerline ethernet connection this is another way to connect ethernet. Direct 100 Mb/s cable is the best as wireless and powerlines is slower (note1). You may have a slow internet connection test it by goggling for " test download speed " .

(note 1) there is a faster wireless technology currently being sold but the game station would not be able to utilise it.

Ps 3 can't obtain IP address


You will need to reset your modem. Are you using wifi or ethernet?

Simple unplug your modem for a few minutes and then try again.

If this doesn't work, you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

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.

Thanks

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


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!

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.

Goin crazy


well please explain more clearly your connection so i can help you better. and about your verizon... it depends what type of verizon connection you have and i belive you said you have DSL. if you are trying to play games such as Gears of War where there is a large reliance on the host's connection you will definitly want a faster connection such as broadband or the new verizon FIOS which will alow you to support all of the players in your game without a large amount of lag factoring into the game play. and nobody likes a laggy connection.
