Not too sure what you're trying to do. Do you mean you want to stream media from your laptop to your ps3? If so you can do it either wirelessly or by ethernet but you'll need to connect them via a modem/router. Anyway, you'll find your answer in the Tech Support section.

This is a direct quote from the link I posted earlier.....

 

 

 Quick guide for this is as follows : connect wireless USB reciever to laptop, and connect to internet as usual. Use a crossover cable to connect from laptop ethernet port to PS3 ethernet port. Then go into network settings and select both your wired local LAN network and the wireless internet connection. With both selected right click and there should be an option to bridge the connections, click this option and the connection should be bridged, allowing the ps3 to access all of that wireless internet goodness.....

 

 

So I think the answer is a crossover cable..... further, if this doesnt work here is another direct quote from a response I gave in the same thread i reffered you to earlier it should help you set up an ad hoc for the ps3

 

Hmmm if you cannot bridge the connection you could set up an ad hoc network, and use internet connection sharing.

 

These articles may help.... basically you want to use the integrated Microsoft Internet connection sharing, which works better or worse depending on the day of the week apparently....

I have never gone down this route personally so can't offer any further advice. I assume there are similar guides available for vista.....
