    Getting my PS3 Online .

    Post by Marino. on Tue Sep 10, 2013 2:56 pm

    I have a normal Desktop PC, i go to the Internet with an Internet Stick .
    My PS3 cannot find said Internet Stick, doesn't matter what i do .

    So is there any way to get my PS3 Online with just an Internet Stick and a Desktop PC ?
    Can i somehow link my PS3 to my PC to get it Online somehow ?

    Oh, how was it... Hmm, I think connect via ethernet cable and allow for sharing via computer...

    Ugh, I used to do it...

    I'm sorry, perhaps I provided some pointers, perhaps not.

    Sorry.

    Google 'turn PC into hotspot', follow instructions to set up a computer to computer network and then it should work

    I don't really remember, and I can not check on my PC due to my latest not having one... I think you can go and allow for local sharing between the computer and you PS3...

    Lemme try to find it...

    Hmm...

    I am sorry, I can not really remember, it should be possible, however :/ I apologize.

    Use a wireless router. That's what I do. And it has always worked for me.

    Yeah, a Router would be nice, but they cost around 50 bucks here >_>

    Seriously, i am able to get into the Internet on my PC but not on my PS3 ?

     You'll need a crossover cable not a standard Ethernet cable. They're dearer and not even sure will they work on a ps3 let alone share a network.

    Why is this so complicated ?

    It's not complicated... have you done even a single google search?  Basically, get your PC interenet on, create a new network (might need to enable sharing), disable your firewall on the PC, plug in the PS3 to your PC, restart the internet and you're done.  I've linked a bunch of stuff below that I got by doing the google search I told you to do in the first place.

    Don't just assume things, aceluby .

    I've done several Google Searches, i've been trying everything for 4 Hours straight last night .
    In fact those very links came up in my searches .

    Turns out that my PC doesn't even have a W-Lan Card so turning my PC into a Hotspot with console command is a no-no.
    A crossover cable also didn't work and my Stick isn't a Router .

    There is one last thing i could try before buying a thing, getting my Laptop online .
    Maybe that thing has a W-Lan Card .

    So i guess this Thread can be locked then .
    Thanks for the help everybody silly
