Hello,
You would need a 30-60 foot ethernet cable or a wireless router.
Either way, here is the page that has the instructions for hookup. I hope this helps! Good luck!

I have a PS3 in one room and my computer and internet in another. I have bought a wireless router but it is hooked up in the room with the computer. I don't want to have to run a cable to the other end of...


Check your wireless network name in your computer if it is wireless enabled.
Then go to your PS3. Go into the network settings and check if the wireless connection is detected.
When you check the network settings, make sure that ip and dns settings are set to automatic.
After that you would need to open some ports on the comp for your PS3 so that you can play online.
Also let us know the make and model no of your router so that we could tell how to open the ports on the router GUI.
Very first thing your PS3 should detect the wireless connection on it.

Playstation 3 wireless internet


Here you have to connect to your wireless router not your computer. Make sure you know your SSID (router's wireless name) and password.

We have comcast internet and we were woundering if we can hook up the wii to the comcast internet modem through a usb cable if so we hooked it up and we dont know how to get the internet on the wii.


No you can not directly connect using the usb connection.

You need to connect either wireless through a router or you need a wii LAN adapter to connect with the Ethernet cord.

Good Luck....

Do I need a 2nd modem to hook my ps3 up to the internet? My ps3 is no where near my computer...how can I get it hooked up to the internet?


I would use a wireless router. Then you can use ps3 or laptop in the house. Or run ethernet from main router/modem to the ps3. You can buy the ethernet cables at amazon.com and newegg.com and they can go a few hundred feet.

I have no computer or cable and need to set up internet on my PS3


??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.

Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.

For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
