Actually, screw sending me the message. It would probably help more people if I just posted it in the forums.
I have a Verizon Wireless Mobile Broadband card plugged into my laptop because no one in my house has a desktop and we never bothered around with WiFi. I assume this aircard you speak of is similar to mine.
First, connect to the internet with your card. For me there's an application I have to run where I basically just open the app and click Connect. If you have XP (which I really hope you do because I haven't tried this on any other OS) open your Network Connections menu. This can either be done by opening the "Start" menu, highlighting "Connect to" and clicking "Show all connections", or by opening the Control Panel from the Start menu and selecting "Network Connections".
In the Network Connections menu, find your current connection. It'll be the one that says "Connected" in gray letters under the title. I don't know if they all are, but for some reason mine was under the Dial-Up category on the list. Next, on the same menu, look for the "LAN or High-Speed Internet" category. You should have a setting there called "Local Area Connection". I have two. You want the one that doesn't say anything about WWAN or Wireless. It should say something about your ethernet card if you leave the mouse cursor hovering over it.
Now that you've identified both settings, right click the first one you found (the one that says "Connected") and click "Properties". Once that menu opens, click the "Advanced" tab. Check the box under "Internet Connection Sharing" that says "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection." In the "Home Network Connection" box, type the name of the second connection you found in the previous step (the one that uses your ethernet card). On some computers, instead of allowing you to type anything, that box will drop down and show a list of all your connections. Either way, you know which to pick. Click "OK", and fire up your PS3.
Now, at this point I plugged one end of an ethernet cord in my PS3 and the other into my laptop. Your computer might say something to let you know it has established a Local Area Connection. Log in to any Playstation Network registered profile on your PS3 and open Network Settings under the Settings tab. Go to "Internet Connections Settings". I was able to click "Easy" and my PS3 did all the work from there.

Hi, my Belkin N Wireless router works in some way fine with both Wired and Wireless connection, but there is a problem, it will only allow me to connect wired to my computer and not to my PlayStation 3......


You may need to change settings in your router to enable your online games to work. Some games need to use specific ports; these ports may be closed due to the router's firewall. Please refer to your game's documentation for the ports required.

Use the following answer to configure these ports in your router.



In order to configure this, you need to know:

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in http://192.168.2.1
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.

  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left

  1. Enter the following information
    • Click Enabled
    • Type a general description of the application i.e.. Remote Desktop
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.

I have had the same problem. The aircard shuts itself off.


There is apparently a firmware problem in the Novatel USB727 that causes the aircard to shut off when the signal is handed off to a different tower. I happen to be in a high traffic area so there are several towers in my immediate area. Cell calls are typically handed off when traffic on any particular tower gets heavy. Unfortunately when the handoff occurs, the firmware does not handle it properly and the aircard shuts off. Supposedly new firmware is coming, but as of 8/14/09 none was released yet.
