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.

Going from USB to PC card


It may not be compatible with either software version or it's possible the version of "driver installer" is only compatible with the USB, If you'd go into device manager on your PC and make sure you see drivers for the modem,network adapter,ports and usbs for the 860 you should be able to set up a dial up connection. This will help you do that. https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Connection+Methods You also may want to take a look at this article https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Getting+Started&tutorialId=214910

Cant get ps3 connection to internet


First, you need an ethernet cord and of course an aircard. connect one end of the the ethernet cable to your playstation and the other to your laptop. View your network connections (control panel-->network and internet connections-->network connections). Right click on your aircard connection and click properties. On the aircard properties window click the advanced tab. on the tab there will be a box asking if you want to let others connect to this connection. check in that box. below there will be a box asking what the home networking connection is. Put **Local Area Connection** in the box. Last make sure firewall is turned off. On your playstation go to network connections and click easy and go from there. (dont try to put in IP adress or anything just let the playstation do it all automaticly). Test your connection and you should be good to go.

Aircard


The PS3 has built in network capabilities, WIFI (wireless), for which you need a wireless router, or wired, where you need an ethernet cable and a router OR just a modem if you don't want anything else connected to the internet at the same time.

5) next tight click on you internet provider thing. and go to properties.
6) click on advanced tab

fyi: its probably going to lag alot if your not in a good reception area. other than that the lag is bearable.
