How do I get online w/ my PS3 using a Sierra 875u usb modem?

The ps3 uses an ethernet cable in the back that connects to the back of my laptop.  How can I make this work?

Seeing how you have to dial out for the internet I think this may work for you but im not to sure.. Try it and let us know if it works.

Then read and follow that link. You have to set up a home network (ie: ICS as the article suggests) for any other computer (including your ps3) to connect to the internet through the computer your aircard is in.

I'm sorry, but I do not understand alot of that. So what you're saying is that I don't need a router and I just need to plug an ethernet cable from the ps3 to the pc and then enable ICS?




Basically yes. See the following two threads. The guide I posted previously in the other thread is probably about as easy to read as anything else I might find. If you want more info, search Google for "Internet Connection Sharing". You could also add "PS3" to the previous search terms for more specific information.

EDIT: Here is the thread where I posted the ICS guide.
