i have a laptop computer, wireless modem. i have wireless capabilities on laptop and i have connected ethernet cable from laptop to ps3 cannot connect on wireless or wired. it times out on ip address failure. do i need a router. i thought my computer was acting as the router in this situation. or how can i solve this problem, thanks henry. connecting on wireless you need to know wep codes and shit i have no idea what they are either. i was told though that wired connection is better so i was trying for that a lot more.
