You can get a router ( wired or wireless ) if you want your PS3 and pc on the internet at the same time, or connect your PS3 directly to your broadband modem.

You need a router if you don't want to have to switch the ethernet cord from the PC to the PS3 all the time.  Get a router!

You can get a router, connect the PS3 directly to the modem or turn your pc wireless, but you cannot connect your pc to your PS3 through a wire and reach the internet... at least I don't think...

Get a Linksys WRT54GS, it's great for the price and is wireless if you choose to go that route.
