Yes you can. Wi - fi = wireless
You can choose wireless in your ps3 network settings.
And you can Connect To wireless internet on your laptop
the ps3 doesnt support ad hoc does it? so i cant set up ad hoc on my laptop and let the ps3 connect by that right?
Here's my answer for someone else in the same situation.
Let me know if you have further problems and I can try to help.....
Iv written a pretty detailed and lengthy thread in another forum (yes i wrote it and im cool having it posted here as well if tis cool with the mods) but for now i'll just give you my hyperlink and hope it helps:
oh and yes its possible to do it.
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.....
IM TRYING TO CONNECT MY PS3 TO A LAPTOP USING JUST A N ETHERNET CORD IS THAT POSSIBLE
