To do this you would need to enable your pc with ICS (Internet connection sharing) and connect an ethernet cable from your pc to ps3. You will need windows xp or vista to do this.

A tutorial can be found here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314066

Should you need either a network card for your pc or ethernet cable these can be cheaply found on ebay.

However your PS3's connection to the internet will be dreadfully slow and will most likley have extremely bad lag when playing online.

How would i use dial up connection to connect my playstation 3 to internet?


Why would you want to? Dial up is so terribly slow for just Internet browsing; I imagine for playing games online it'd be even worse (if it even lets you connect with such a slow connection).

That being said, you obviously can't direct connect dial up to the PS3. There isn't a port for that. Instead you'll have to do a work around involving a PC/laptop with a dial-up modem/port and an Ethernet port on it. You'll also need and Ethernet cable.

Basically the plan is to connect to dial up using your laptop/PC, then share the connection on it from the dial-up port to the Ethernet port. The PS3 would then connect to the Internet through your computer. Not ideal, but then again having only dial up isn't an ideal situation to begin with.

Here's some specific guides on the matter:

http://www.ehow.com/how_6515109_play-ps3-online-broadband.html

Here's some generic guides on ICS (Internet connection sharing) on Windows:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing

Here's a link for sharing Internet connections on a Mac (if Mac's even have a dial-up port, I honestly don't know how old you'd have to go to get one with it):

Best of luck!

Depending on if you're using a Dial-Up Connection or a Broadband Connection, the solution is quite different. If you are using a Dial-Up connection, the PS3 will have to do the dialing. In your case, I do believe that you are using an Ethernet (Broadband) Connection which is always on. In order for your PS3 to get Internet access, you will need to get a router and install it before you can get online with your PS3.

Your Firefox browser is probably still trying to use your Dial-up connection which doesn't exist any more. Set up your browser's Internet Connection again and it'll probably cure your problems!

Since you are using the Internet I must assume you are using the Dial up settings. I may expect that this AT&T service is DSL. In Internet Settings there is a tab marked "Connections" and the Dial Up settings are set to "Always Dial My Default Connection". Click on "Never Dial a Connection" and this problem should be solved. Next thing is to ensure that the DSL connection is connected properly since if this is not setup correctly you won't even get online until you reset the "Connections" tab to the original setting.

My wifes laptop is trying to use DUN instead of network cable


Open up Internet Options (from the Tools menu in IE or right-clicking the desktop icon and selecting Properties, or through the Control Panel). On the Connections tab, select 'Never dial a connection.' When you want to connect to your ISP you will be required to manually start the dial-up connection.

I am on broadband. I have a dial-up account for when away. Dial-up is set to dial only when network not found - and has been this way for many months without any problem. Broadband working no prob but now...


One thing that could be possible is there is a program running that could be requesting information from the internet and rather than using the broadband it attempts to access with dial-up. One quick fix would be to go to Internet options and under the "Connections" tab uncheck the box that states Dial whenever..... and check the box that states Never dial a connection. I would use this setting when you use your broadband and when you are away traveling you can go back and check the box to Dial whenever.....

Good Luck
