    How to play online with ps3???

    I have a new ps3 with the 40gb hard drive which doesn't come with the lead for hooking it up to the net. I have a ethernet cable an i tried that into the back of my computer but it didn't work. Anyone know?

    should come with a black cable? which is exactly the same as an ethernet cable... also. you need to plug it into your router, if you're not wireless..

    As far as i'm aware there's no way of connecting a ps3 online without either the ethernet cable or wireless. I use a router so connect straight from the ps3 to my router and it's away. If you only have a usb modem to connect to the internet from your pc you either need to replace this with a router or if your pc has an available ethernet port connect this to the ps3 (note if your pc shows cable not connected you might need a "special" ethernet cable called a crossover cable) and then use internet connection sharing on your pc to get the ps3 online.

    I've plugged it in to the ethernet port with a cable i found lying around at work and it recognises that it's plugged in and as far as i can tell it's giving it a 1gb connection. But when i do the connection test it times out so i dunno.

    i had similar trouble gettin mine set up, as far as i no all ps3s are wireless capable, it might be a problem with your modem not clearing your ps3 for security reasons like an unrecognised wep key or even the ip address, best thing to do i reckon is try givin the wireless system another chance mate, thats what i did in the end, well worth it too!!
