Ok I had this issue with one of mine as well try this out first and if it does not work Ill give you some other things to try.

1. shut off and/or unplug everything.
2. plug the wireless adapter into the ps3
3. turn on the router
4. turn on the ps3

I had to do this with my alienware laptop and my ps3, it worked for 9 of the 12 ps3's I have had this issue with.

I have an external modem for broadband connection. it connects only via usb i am not able to connect via the phone cable port. what seems to be wrong?


The broadband modem connects to thecomputer using the USB or nework port not the phone cable port.
The network port has 8 wire connectors and whilst they both look similar the network (10baseT) port is wider than the phone port.

You also need to configure or reconfigure the model to let it know which cable you are using to connect the modem to the computer.

If you have a router on your broadband, you need a RJ45 network cable - right next to the modem port on your laptop is a network port - this will use the correct cables you need to connect to your router.

If you don't have a router but only a broadband modem, just connect it to the USB port on your laptop, install the software and you should be good to go.

USB Broadband to wireless router through desktop PC


If I get you right you are useing a 3g Internet connection and have a router wich conets the 2 computers together, the problem is that you can't share the internet connection.
Without any information about the operateing systems I can tell you the idea:
First you need to disable DHCP server on the router and use static IP addresses on both PC, the IP address should be something like

PC1:
IP: 192.168.0.2
Network mask:255.255.255.0

PC2:
IP: 192.168.0.3
Network mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.2

In this IP configuration above PC1 has the 3g modem connected.
This was the easy part, hard part is to share the internet connection on the network, that's a little different ritual on every operateing system, try to use google to get your specific one.


However there's a much more easier way to solve all your problems if you can't make it work, but it costs money. All you need to buy is a 3G router and that will do the same thing for you what your old router did.
I did a little search for you on Australian Ebay to see what you can get.
But I'm sure you have your own cheapbfavourite source of computer hardware as well.


Hope this will help you sorting out your porblem.

Imre

I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook with Vista Home and NAV 360 and recently purchased a Sierra Wireless Mobile Broadband USB modem T-Stick D597. When I try to install the T-Stick, I keep getting an error...


You might want to disable the WiFi that is built into your laptop before installing that device. It is very possible that the built in WiFi is conflicting with that Wireless Broadband Device.

Wireless router installation


Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).

Virgin broadband modem


You didnt explain about how you were connecting the desktop and through which....USB or Ethernet. You say you have no problems with the laptop most of us connect the laptop throught the USB port and our desktop through the ethernet the both connected to the modem. All you are having problems with is networking. If you open up the connection adapters looking first at the laptop one and confirming that the TCP/IP protocols are the same or should be. Copy the laptop one and place those protocols in the desktop adapter it must connect. It will complain to you if the address's is the same, use another number.
