Erm thats probably a phone line your trying to get it into, look around the back of your PC for a ethernet socket. Plug it in and enable ICS (I think). This means you wont be able to go on the internet on the PC whilst playing the PS3 or vise versa...

Buying a router will resolve this./

Re: My ethernet cable doesnt fit the modem. what do i do?

I have the same problem. Its not anything to do with a phoneline such and such cause i have a router with an ethernet cable. Its the actual ethernet cable that won't fit into the Lan port back of the PS3. What type of ethernet cable do you get free with the ps3 cause i would use that, but its not long enough to go to my router?

Or should i say which type of ethernet cable would fit in the back of the PS3 Lan port?

The ethernet cable is a standard RJ45 cable. You can pick one up from most computer stores (PC World, Dixons, Currys, etc) :smileyhappy:

all ethernet sockets are of a standard size, meaning you are either trying to fit the wrong wire into an ethernet port, or you are trying to fit the correct wire into a wrong port
