Connecting ps3 to internet with shared internet

I just moved into a basement apartment and we are sharing our internet with the people who live upstairs. i have their password and have great connection on my laptop, but i have no idea how to get my ps3 connected to it. i have no modem or router down here in my basement, but i do have a router not being used in case i do need it down here...if someone could give me a step by step on how to connect my ps3 to the house's network, that would be great.

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 have tried to connect to xbox live


you need to make sure you have enabled ICS, Internet Connection Sharing. To do so, you go in to the internet settings (found in the network sharing centre)choose your net connection, click 'view status' and then click properties (the first of three buttons at the bottom, properties, disable and diagnose) then once the window pops up, there is a sharing tab, check the box that states 'allow other users to connect to this computers internet connection' after that simply dis connect and re connect and the new settings will be able to be used once you do a xbox live network test. Good Luck.

PS3 wont connect to internet


Your PS3 should have WiFi built in unless you bought he 20GB version back when it first came out, that is the only one that dosn't have WiFi. But you can still connect it the way you want. You can use any type of ethernet cable, straight through or crossover. You need to go into your network connections in the control panel, select wired and wireless connection at the same time and bridge them. That should do it if you wanna go that route but you would have to have the computer on anytime you wanted to connect your ps3 to the internet. The best bet I think would be to just use the WiFi built into the PS3

Ps3 wired connection


Hi There.

If your PS3 is Networked upto Your PC to use the internet connection, You have to allow the PC to share its Internet connection with yout PC, Do this By going into Network settings, Checking the properties of your LAN card in your PC. and clicking on, "share my internet". This should alleviate that problem..

Or.

If your PS3's Wired connection isnt working. but your PC one is, Try moving your PS3 Lan cable into one of the other Free LAN Ports (if available) or Try Switching the PC cable over to the PS3's Port in the Router, and Visa-Versa !
