I'm not sure if your problem is the same as mine was, but I just went through the same thing. If you go to Settings, Network Settings, and then perform an Internet Connection Test, mine could not acquire an I.P. Address, even though it had been able to since March. Then suddenly 2 weeks ago it just couldn't, so luckily on June 18th, PS3 came out with a new firmware patch, it upgrades 2.35 to 2.36. So I downloaded 2.36 off their website and installed it onto the PS3 using a Flash Drive. It now Works Perfectly. When installing, installation failed twice before correctly installing on the third try.

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

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.

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.
