Okay I get a wireless signal from one of my neighbors wireless routers but its not strong enough for the PS3 to connect to the internet. However my new laptop connects fine with a strength of about two or three bars. All the ways I've tried to get my PS3 to share the wireless internet of the laptop have failed so far, mainly trying to use virtual routers. Any ideas would help. The main reason I want to do this is not to play games online, but simply because before we moved I paid for two ps1 classics and I know if i can get the PS3 online I can download them again from the store, to my new PS3 the old one died a few months ago. Thanks, for taking the time to read this I will check back later today.
P.S I was able to get on the playstation store the other day using my phone as a hotspot, but then TMOBILE banned me from using it because it's not on my acount. If i could have stayed online longer I could have done what I wished but it didn't pan out. :/

Also I remember I used to be able to download games to my psp then upload them to the ps3 and that doesn't work anymore and I don't think there is a way around that.

get an extension cord and string the cord out a window or something and get the PS3 closer to their house, put it on the patio or something while it downloads the games. Course you'll need to lug a pc monitor out there or small tv so you have a screen to look at too lmao
Course what Brit said was the applicable response. Also you could not be a **bleep** first and ask your neighbor if it's ok. They may have a cheap plan with some company that places a bandwidth cap, you never know.

While a very sound reply, I am moving again in a few months and it would just be another expense that is unnecessary. It's not my fault someone does not want to or realize to put pass-code security on.
Most broadband providers have the ability to relocate your service when you move. It really isn't that much of a hassle. You really should do the honest thing and either ask your neighbor for permission (maybe they'll even move the router within their house to allow you a better connection), or to get your own service.
DSL starts at like $15/mo right now, and most phone companies don't require you to buy a voice plan anymore.

I had to use my Laptop's wifi connection to my wireless router once. It was because my old xbox did not have a wifi adapter. All I did was create a bridge within the laptop's network connection's. You will need an ethernet cable to connect your PS3 to your laptop. If you are not sure how to create a bridge the try youtube.com for instructions. Hope this helps.
