Unfortunately you cannot use the crossover RJ45 cable to connect PS3 to the router. You can use it to connect two similar devices (PC - PC, Router - Router, etc.)
Brought a 10mb Cross-over wire for no reason, does anyone know if a Cross-over wire can be used as a normal ethernet wire? Like can i stick it in the back of my ps3 and connect it to my router and play online normally without any faults?

I've done the data transfer twice now, from 60 GB to 250 GB and then to 320 GB. Except for updating the system software, you don't have to do anything on the destination PS3 prior to the data transfer. Once you get the ethernet cable working, all you need is a lot of patience. This last time it took an estimated 17 hours!

I tried literally EVERYTHING mentioned in this forum and nothing worked. As soon as I was able to find a crossover cable ($15 at radio shack that i'll be taking back as soon as i'm done) the transfer started and worked the first time i tried!

I wanted to throw in my two cents. I had an original PS3 and I just got a new PS3 slim. Both are at software version 4.0. I tried the data transfer utility a couple of times, but it kept timing out. Out of frustration, I changed ethernet cables. That did the trick. Even as I type, it's transfering data behind me.
I did not use a cross over cable, just a regular ethernet cable. I was also not going though a switch, but directly connected the two systems to each other. It CAN be done, just try another cable and don't go through a switch.

I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with transfering data from a fat to a slim when multiple users use the same system. I share a fat ps3 with my sister, and i would like to transfer only my account (game saves and purchased downloads) to a new ps3 slim. I started to prepare my account for the transfer and the transfer utility displayed warnings that the other accounts (ones i do not want to transfer) were not prepared for the transfer. I assume that means the transfer utility feature is all-or-nothing. Does anyone have any recommendations?
