    I just got my Ps3 and was wondering why the game system gets so hot?

    I was also wondering how to hook up to the internet? Need Router?

    I don't know why, it just does get hot. Just keep it away from walls/corners and you will be fine. Oh, and to hook up to the internet you don't need a router. You can also connect like on the PS2 with an Ethernet cable to your modem. I use a router with wireless though.

    Router is the better way to go?

    I'm sure you need to restart your modem by turning the power on and off if you want to connect the ps3 straight to it.

    You should be able to get online using Internet Connection Sharing with your PC however I would say this can be quite complicated at times (usally more complecated then direct connection).

    You using correct DNS numbers with direct connection - you putting in your ISP username and password correctly - have you spoken to your ISP to be sure that they let you use more than one device/internet gaming?
