How do I connect my ps3 to the internet through my computer?

4 replies 791 views Edited Sep 24, 2008
Alright I am in college and live in the dorms. I payed $100 to get an internet connection for my laptop through an Ethernet jack. When i hook up my ethernet cord from the jack to my ps3 i dont get a connection. I was wondering if there was anyway to get a connection and how? I know some people that have a connection with their xbox by changing the ip address on the xbox and i have been messing around with my ps3 for a long time and can not figure it out. any help would be nice.

By bridging or utilizing ICS.

 

search google for good walk thoughs and how-to's

Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

Since you are living in the dorms, you may have to give your PS3's Mac address to computer services. On my campus you needed to give that over and then they took off the connection block off of my PSP.

If you did something right..... people wont realize you've done anything at all.

You have to go into your network settings and allow another device to connect to the internet through your laptop.  Do a google search, but use an Xbox 360 instead of a PS3 in the search, you will find the instructions for your laptop that should work with your PS3.
