    you could look at your instruction manual that came with the ps3, its a black booklet that sais quick reference on it and is a step by step guide.

    if you have broadband is very easy just plug the lead you got with your PS3 into your router and follow the instructions.

    If you get stuck, come back with more information and where you are stuck.

    but please try and read the manual before asking general questions.

    and please do a search before asking. ppl don't mind helping, but you got to try yourself 1st.

    I am confused; a “wireless modem” that only has a USB port. How do you connect to the network, cable, DSL, satellite? If you have a wireless USB access point then there is a modem and or a wireless router and modem somewhere in your house. I have never heard of a high-speed internet provider having a modem that only has a USB port as a internet connection. Perhaps you should go to best buy and ask the geek squad for some help, its free to ask questions and you can show them what you have and what you want to do, they will be happy to help you. I can’t help you unless I know exactly what kind of setup you have. If you have a modem with only USB then you need to make your computer rout TCPIP data to a network so the PS3 can have access. Do you have a 20GB or a 60GB PS3? Is the PS3 located near the modem? Do you have to use a wireless connection or can you run a cable to the PS3. many many questions we need to know. Its really best to go see the geek squad at best buy or go to a computer store and ask a professional. You could be playing online tonight! Or you could give us more info and we can try to talk you through it one day at a time.
