I try Wireless on the PS3, it shows a neighbors insecure wireless, but when I try to connect the PS3 it just blinks on and on, never connecting. I tried it on my laptop and my laptop connects to the neighbors wireless no problem. What is that ADOS thing and how do you use it, nothing in the manual.
Wow, you are Network Hero; I would have never thought that would be possible, but why wouldn't it work, it makes sense!
So on the PS3, I would select "Wired" and it would see it, or would I have to enter the IP infoo and all that?
When you share your Internet connection this way (Windows calls it Internet Connection Sharing), it effectively causes your computer to act as a router, it will give your console all the network information automatically.
No luck in connecting a Cat 5e cable between laptop and PS3. I tried automatic-simple, then tried manual and entered IP address 126.96.36.199 and DNS primary 188.8.131.52 and 2nd DNS 184.108.40.206 (These seem odd, should they be different) as found on very bottom of another forum posting http://community.us.playstatio...479?start=0&tstart=0
Always comes up with failed, no matter how I try to connect.
I have the ICS on in Network Connections.
I should mention that if you're going to connect your game console to the internet through your computer this way, you'll need a cross-over cable, which is similar to a regular ethernet cable except the wire pattern is different.
Most forum items state no crossover cable needed.
I just ran 15 miles to get a reg Cat5e; if i get a crossover and it doesn't work what then. I'll be out over $40/50 bucks and still no connection. Radio Shack is such a rip off store $18.00 for a 10' reg Cat5, what will they get out of me for a crossover, $30.00 + will the crossover do everything automatic or will i still have to enter a IP.
How do you save a IP address manually; i see how to edit but no place to save in PS3, when i cancel to get out of that, it cancels the changes.
Getting frustrated, i thought this was supposed to be easy.
Try Home Depot for a cable if they're closer - they're usually cheaper there.
Normally you would need a crossover cable for a direct connection. Regular cat5 cable if going through a hub/switch/router.
I've never done it before but ths is how I would try it:
1) connect laptop to wireless network
2) at laptop command prompt type "ipconfig" and press enter
3)input matching ipaddress (change last number to anything from 0-255), subnet mask and gateway into your laptop wired network settings to match your wireless numbers
4)connect PS3 to laptop with crossover cable. If it can't configure itself automatically, input matching numbers on the PS3 (change the last ip address # again)
