For those of you who are interested I have some info to pass along and hopefully it will help some out here. I live in the country and there are no high speed internet lines anywhere neer us and probably will not be for many , MANY years to come. I could get an internet connection thru a few dish providers but it is a LOT of money. My wife has (not sure if I am allowed to say which provider) a cell phone with unlimited internet access (and very surprisingly cheap at $25 a month) and I have been trying to hook it up to my PS3 because it is preaty much my only option unless I want to sell my soul to pay for a faster method. I finally got it !!!!! All I did was hook up the cell phone to my computer like I allways do and connect the PC up to the internet, but I ran a LAN line from the back of my computer to the back of the PS3. This didn't work for me at first but after messing with it, it is preaty easy. Go to the icon on the bottom of your screen which is your internet provider and right click........hit properties.....and then there is a box that says something about allowing others to leach off your computer (check this). This will allow your PS3 to use the internet off from your PC thru the LAN line. I found out that every time I hook it up I need to go uncheck the box and then recheck it to get the PS3 activated but it works and I am happy with it. The speed is not the greatest but for me I don't have many options. Fight Night was a nightmare useing this setup but Resistance 2 works awesome online with this setup. So.....you may not be able to play all the games online this way but you will be able to use the Playstation store, get updates, and play a few games. You don't need any fancy software, routers, or anything like that to make this work. Can't wait to get back home and play some more Resistance 2 online.......LOVE IT
yes I am aware the connection won't be the best, but it will be good enough for me to get the game updates and patches that I couldn't get before unless I took my system into town, which I wasn't about to do.
you are going to be ruining it for others aswell with your laggy connection.
dont forget that.
i hate playing with people like who you, assume just because you can get "online" with the ps3 in any fashion possible, it wont lag anyone else out.
