Well, I would guess that if you are hooked up now, then you have a wireless router. If this is the case then you should have rj-45 (ethernet) ports on the back of it also for lan hook-up also. Must come with atleast 4 LAN ports, 1 WLAN port (for the incoming internet signal from your cable/dsl modem), so if you use a reg. ethernnet cord, then yes you should be fine hooking your ps3 to your network(via ethernet cable to your wireless router from the ps3).
Hope this helps...

Just purchase ps3 with a major goal being to view


reset your network and revamp the pairing between the two units- also if your pc has blue tooth you can pair them directly usind a adhoc style private network that is more effective for streaming from your pc than using an internet capable network because there is less traffic and signal interuption. The files would stream better because not only is there no unwanted traffic but the network its self would be a dedicated link between your pc and your system. Here is a HOW TO LINK ( its for PC to PC but essentially thats all a ps3 is) Ive set mine up and am loving it! So much better than my wifi internet router setup! And Yes you can still access the internet via pc and ps3 using the wifi- and simutaniously use the adhoc bluetooth network with little to no interference or lag

How do you hook a PC laptop to the PS3 for installing upgrade info?


First off you will need an ethernet cable to do this. Depending on what OS you are running on the laptop, there are different ways to get to where you need to know. So I will give you the basics, which should get you connected.
On the laptop you need to get to your (network sharing center) vista and win 7 you go to (control panel) select (network and Internet) then select (network and sharing)
On the left hand collumn select (change adapter settings), fingd which connection to the internet your laptop uses and right-click it and select (properties).
Select the (sharing) tab and then check the box that says (allow other network userers to connect through this computer's internet connection). Then select ok and restart the connection.
After this procced to connect the PS3 to the laptop via ethernaet cable and then use the PS3 setup wizard to enable the connection.

Can i connect my xbox to my laptop /w pc usb


Xbox Network Connection using Hub

This is the most common network configuration and is also the easiest to setup.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your cable/DSL modem into the uplink port of your hub. (Make sure that your uplink is switched to "on").
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the hub, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your hub directly to your xbox.
**NOTE** A switch may be used in place of a hub with the same basic setup.**

That's it! No other network changes should be needed for this configuration. Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

Xbox Network Connection using Router

This is another common network configuration.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your modem into the WAN port of your router.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the router, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your router directly to your xbox.

**NOTE** In steps #2 and #3, you should not use a port that is directly beside the "uplink" port on your router, if your uplink port is being used to connect to another routing device.** If your router has a built in firewall, you will need to forward ports 8602 both incoming and outgoing to the internal ip address of your pc. Consult your device manaul for port forwarding.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC

Xbox Network Connection using Crossover Cable

This is the last network configuration. For this setup you need at least one NIC card.
Step #1: Plug your USB cable that comes from your modem into your PC's USB port. This should already be done, if you have a usb modem for your current internet connection.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from an installed NIC card on your PC, directly to the Xbox.

**NOTE** A crossover cable is only needed if you are connecting the Xbox directly to the second NIC card. If you have a device such as a switch, hub or router in between you should use a standard RJ-45 cable. This type of network setup also requires "Winroute©", a program downloadable from the world wide web. Consult the manual for specific instructions on how to set this up. Also if you have a USB ethernet adapter, you may use any of the setups described herein. USB ethernet adapter basically converts a USB cable into an RJ-45 cable.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

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

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.

Ps3


Are you trying to connect via Wifi or via a LAN (a cord).

If Wifi, are you sure there is a network? Do you have the network key? A network key is basically a 10+ character gibberish password that you get when you set up a secure wireless network... It is easier to connect to a non-secure network, but no one recommends keeping a non-secure network... because its not secure ;)

If LAN, try plugging the cord into a computer, and seeing if the computer can connect to the LAN. If a computer can connect, I see no reason the PS3 wouldn't be able to. If the computer can't connect, verify the other end of the cord is plugged into your router/wall, and that it is securely seated. If a router, unplug the power for 10 seconds, then plug it back in and try again.
