I have a virgin mobile wireless internet card. how do i get my ps3 to pick it up


Unless the Virgin Mobile card you have is specifically supported by the PS3, you will not be able to plug it into one of the PS3's USB ports and have it working. The easiest AND most inexpensive method that comes to mind is to hook up your Virgin card to your PC, then have your PC share it's internet connection with the PS3. Microsoft has documented this setup best (assuming you are using Windows) http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing

I bought a cricket broadband device for internet servoces and i tryed to hook it up to my ps3 via usb in the front of my ps3 and it dnt work what am i doing wrong?


Ok-here is your problem, the broadband card (any broadband car for that matter) needs to have drivers and software installed to function- And the ps3 does not allow you to install 3rd party software or drivers - The only way you can use a wireless broadband card ona ps3 is to install linux on your system and use your ps3 as a desktop PC, however the ps3's ability to run linux depends on the model and age of your system, newer slim units (from what I have read) do not support the "Other OS" feature of its predicessors , I own a first gen 80gig with reverse compatability, and run linux (its cool) however I havent had any hands on experiance with the newer systems. if you have a home pc you can buy a router (you have to buy one that supports USB cellular broadband devices-so do some research to make sure you get one compatable with your card) and once you have your card configured to the wifi router you can use the ps3 wifi and get online that way- Bummer I know but I went through the same ordeal using an altel huwawei broadband card

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).

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

Using a notebook PC's internet signal to go online with a PS3


look for a net gear router and dont bother buying a N+ its not worth it for starters its a scam it even says on the news so get a net gear G wireless router and its roughly £35-50 but its worth it, buy it from amazon or from a argos or littlewoods site. im hopefully going to get wireless in christmas time, so ill hopefully add you some time soon you can contact me thru here for my name if i do get online

Connect my ps3 to my mobile phone for internet access


You'll have to connect your computer to the Internet and then share that internet from the computer to the PS3. Hopefully this will get you started. You can google for guides. It's not hard but it will be a pain that first initial time.
